(And since "late" is a relative term, feel free to define it for yourself, and come before then.) Seriously, you can come whenever you like. Best,Mitch.  Date: Sun, 6 Nov 2011 15:17:03 -0800

        99.9999% of founders of startups also do not get rich (just
        stressed out).

         

        If you're looking to get rich as a primary goal, then this email
        list is probably not the best suited for your goals.  On the
        other hand, if you're interested in exploring and (ultimately)
        doing what you love, whether or not it makes you money (and with
        a decent possibility that it may), then you've found the right
        place!

        

        In any case, welcome to San Francisco.  Since, from your short
        description, it sounds like it is home for awhile, I hope you
        will love it here.  You are always welcome at Noisebridge, as
        long as you follow our one rule:  Be excellent to each other. 
        So, come by any time, day or night, any day.

         

        Not just programming, but also cooking, sewing, craft, art,
        photography, machine shop, electronics, lock picking, biology,
        space exploration, science, German language, and many other
        areas of interest are explored and supported at Noisebridge.

         

        Best,

        Mitch.
