Basically, noisebridge was born free and pure.  It was composed of excellent hackers who had the highest goals in mind of creating a physical space where people could come anytime and create things.  We thought that by renting a space with an open-door policy and inviting more hackers to make use of it, the purity of the initialized meatspace would sustain. Unfortunately, reality is an aggressive dog. -Jake (spaz)

Noisebridge is not your home, it is your hackspace

There is broad consensus that living at Noisebridge or sleeping overnight is not excellent. That means you should not do it. Noisebridge is a place for hacking on creative uses of technology, not somewhere to live or crash out. Our lease prohibits people from living here, and people living at Noisebridge reduce its utility for those who want to hack.

If you are sleeping at Noisebridge anyone has the right to ask you to wake up and hack or leave. As a community, we agree that it is not acceptable to argue, be rude, or go back to sleep after someone has asked you to wake and hack or leave. If you fail to wake up and hack or leave when asked, you should expect to have your behavior discussed at a community meeting, and you are likely to end up being unwelcome here.

People who sleep at Noisebridge may find themselves awakened by the Rooster Brigade.
