Hi. So, there's broad consensus at Noisebridge that living here, or sleeping regularly overnight is unexcellent, which means that you really shouldn't do it. Noisebridge is a place for hacking on creative uses of technology, not somewhere to live or crash out..

There is broad consensus that living at Noisebridge or sleeping overnight is not excellent. That means you should just not do it. Noisebridge is a place for hacking on creative uses of technology, materials, and/or consumables; not somewhere to live or crash out at. 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 else present in the space has the complete right to ask you to wake up and hack or else request that you leave. As a community, we agree that it is not acceptable to argue, to be rude, or to go back to sleep after someone has asked that you either wake up and hack or else 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 could subject yourself to becoming permanently banned by consensus from the space.
