Noisebridge is not an infrastructure provider for technical-creative projects. It's haphazardly run into the ground by people driven by ideology, not practicality, plus assorted non-hackers, squatters, ex-convicts, and schizophrenics.  We are [[Incorporation|a non-profit educational institution]] intended for public benefit, supposedly. We are primarily dysfunctional in a 5,200 square-foot mess located in the heart of San Francisco.  Some teach, some learn, some share, many don't. [[Noisebridge_Vision|Read more about Noisebridge]] or [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wamwklXWK4M watch a short video]...
 
 
 
Some talk about providing a safe space to work, learn, and play, but that has yet to happen. Please read and understand our [[anti-harassment policy]] and [[community standards]]. This is how we expect people to behave when they are at Noisebridge, and you should also expect this standard of behavior from others in the space.
 
 
 
Noisebridge relies on your donations to continue operating. If you have found Noisebridge useful, please consider [[donate|donating]] to help us keep operating.

Noisebridge is a space for sharing, creation, collaboration, research, development, mentoring, and of course, learning. Come visit, work, and use our equipment free (but please donate when you can!)

Noisebridge is also more than a physical space; it's a community with roots extending around the world.

Noisebridge grew out of Chaos Communications Camp in August, 2007. We have had regular weekly Tuesday meetings since September 2007. We rented our first physical space on September 1st 2008, which we quickly outgrew, and were at our much larger 5,200 square-foot second location at 2169 Mission from September 1st 2009 to mid-2020; now at 272 Capp St. just behind the old Mission St. location. Noisebridge was granted tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status in July 2009, retroactive to October 2008.
