Revision as of 05:23, 6 August 2015

We've been Noisebridging for quite some time by now. So have many others. Many, many others.

A lot of us are pretty burnt out. There's also a lot of newbies who still have hopes and dreams.

A thing that's been on our collective mind lately is the relatively small number of people making big things happen at Noisebridge. Its a feeling that this number is slowly sliding back into the entropy danger zone.

Another thing that's been on *everyone's* mind is: Wow that reboot thing went pretty good, eh? Lets have another!

Why not, hmm?

Late/mid September (probably, idk, lets talk about it), lets close Noisebridge for the weekend. Lets shut things down. Lets close it all down and clean up the space. Fix all the things that we've been wanting to hack on but nobody's had the time to get everyone together, build a big todo list, sort out supplies, and MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Sounds like a lot, huh? Thats fine. We can do it. We're Noisebridge. We did a whole 3 month long reboot last year, so we can totally have a two day long hack day where we hack on Noisebridge.
