Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the hackerspace Noisebridge, our ongoing mission to explore strange (yet economically priced) new ascent technologies; to seek out new parts and new partnerships; to boldly go where no non-government-or-massively-industrially-funded-group has gone before.

(Administrivia: because this is the future, I'm going to attempt to minute the meeting in Wave. If you don't yet have a Wave invite but would like to help with the minuting when I inevitably get bored of playing with Wave myself (ie, after the first three minutes), ping me at dichro@rcpt.to) <wave id="googlewave.com!w+2B5yTcXuh8A" />
