Press contact: press@noisebridge

We are located at 2169 Mission St., San Francisco.

We've gotten press coverage before, take a look.

What we do

Noisebridge is a hacker space.

Hacker, as in "people who like making new things and exploring how old ones work". (See also these two essays.)

See our Events page for examples of what we do.

Probably the best time for press to come to the space to meet a lot of people would be during 5 Minutes of Fame, our monthly series of lightning talks. Of course, if any of our other events interest you, you can come to those also.

We ask that you first contact us at the press email above before coming to the space, and identify yourself as a member of the press to anyone you speak to. The easiest way to do this is to ask someone to introduce you to the group at the beginning of an event.

Please note that photography is not allowed in the space without the permission of the people being photographed.
