Excellence Our One Rule is to Be Excellent to Each Other. (What does that mean? How does the Anti-Harassment Policy fit into this? Are we SURE we know what being Excellent is? This is an important and fundamental conversation at Noisebridge, so let's give it like 120 seconds.)
Participation Everyone at Noisebridge is a participant at Noisebridge. (What does that mean? How do you get a door key? Access to Slack, Discuss, etc?)
- we want to make meetups?
- maybe contact marco
- wiki contacts about meetup!!
- for now
Philanthropists A Philanthropist at Noisebridge has earned enough trust from the community to open and close the space. (What does that mean? What do we expect from Philanthropists? How do you become one? etc)
Membership Binder  Membership in Noisebridge entails community Trust in Consensus. (What does that mean? What do we expect from Members? How do you become a Member? etc)
Financial Report Anarchist societies under a capitalist state need money to survive and thrive, yo. Funds in bank: Noisetor (See the bulletpoints at the bottom of http://noisetor.net/finances/#summary): Any other details by those participating in handling our financials The latest financial reports from the treasurer are available at https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Finances Fundraising Update How's it all going Consensus Consensus is how the Noisebridge Membership may change how Noisebridge works. (How does Consensus work? What types of things are good for formal Consensus? What is small-c consensus? What is a "block"?)
Proposals from last week  (Add any items which are consensed upon or someone has raised a principle objection for to the Consensus Items History page.) Proposals for next week  (Add any new items for consensus to the Current Consensus Items page.) DiscussionDiscussion Item 1Discussion Item 2End of Meeting
** ODC event wed 8pm for webVR ** Extinction rebellion fundraiser in December ** new drill press back there ** New drill press
** A few people expressed interest in getting an event on our meetup page, figure it's taking a little longer for people to get back due to holidays but it would be great if there were kind of official contact people for getting things on meetup. ** winding down the meeting there was a great discussion of how to make the meetings more participatory and streamlined. Hopefully we'll be able to have even more excellent meetings in the future.
