Ah... what are you talking about? There are two major institutions
within 30 min public transit of NB that each have many many
neuroscience labs. And that's not to mention the many non-academic
sources of neuro work in the bay area.  And I'm assuming both the
lawrence labs do none, which is probably not true. To my knowledge,
two noisebridge members have jobs at neuroscience labs at present, and
more have in the past (and one works at Lawrence).  I just thought I'd
point out that it's totally possible to get a position like this,
especially if you're technical and have modest income requirements.

But sure, Noisebridge makes for a good lab--assuming you want to be
your own PI.  In which case, like I suggested, let's git er done.
