I keep coming here because I'd like to make the space better. To see
something that doesn't completely "work" and walk away from it is
totally against the hacker mentality. Say what you will about my
approach, but at least I try. I continue to make effort despite all
these bad vibes and misunderstandings because that's what life is all about.
The people that seem to have the most issues with me are the people that
are never here and whom I've not been able to have any sort of bonding
experience. The people that I actually interact with on a daily basis I
consider my friends and co-workers, even if I don't always get along
I've made a conscious effort to get as many of you in my car as I can
for off-site bonding, whether it's:
* midnight anime marathon at Bridge Theater (Jason, Simon, Benny),
* fieldtrip to Google & Hacker Dojo in Mountain View (Fabian, Benny, John),
* Underground market to sell kombucha (rosanna, benny, fabian),
* shooting range in South San Francisco (Isky, Nate, Benny, Fabian, John
- plus me and my dog - all in my little sedan at once), and
* new year's fireworks at Embarcadero (Mike Khan, Simon, Benny, Fabian).
Seeing each other outside of Noisebridge seems to make it easier for
everybody to get along. Of all my experiences at Noisebridge, the
experiences of doing things with people outside of Noisebridge that I've
met here are the experiences I value the most.
