Today I received an email (copied below) from Paul Spinrad, a MAKE Magazine editor asking me, and Noisebridge, to have a table for people to learn about Noisebridge at an interesting kickoff party for Engine Advocacy. These people are focusing on small businesses (like the ones started at hackerspaces) to take a role in shaping the future of the US economy.  And they are seeing hackerspaces as part of this vision. I already agreed to be there to set up a table.  Anyone interested in joining me to represent Noisebridge at the party on 8-Dec, 7p-10p?  It'd be nice to have a few of us there.  (And it should be fun, too.  :) The party is in SOMA in the City. Mitch.

      Hi Mitch-- Derek Slater who used to be at the EFF but is now
        policy director at Google (maybe you know him?) is starting to
        pursue the big and exciting prospect of a new political advocacy
        org, Engine
          Advocacy, dedicated to encouraging innovation, grassroots
        entrepreneurship, making, net neutrality, and all that kind of
        good stuff.

      They're hosting a party in SF on December 8, and they would
        love it if you and any other Noisebridge folks wanted to come
        and set up a table for people to learn about Noisebridge and
        other hackerspaces, and play with Trippy RGBs, Brain Machines,

      I'm definitely going to this-- I think it will be very fun
        and interesting.  I hope you'll be in town that day and can make
        it as well.  If you're interested, please RSVP below and you can
        also email brittanysmith at google.com to
        coordinate whatever you'd need for Noisebridge to represent
        there.  If so, I'd love to help out at the table however you
        want.  Please let me / us know!

      Best regards,





                        having a party. Join
                      We are a group of
                        entrepreneurs, artists, investors, and other
                      We believe in the
                        value of decentralized, emergent, bottom-up
                        innovation; that the Internet is the most
                        powerful platform for innovation ever created;
                        and we want to shape public policies that allow
                        the internet to flourish.
                      We're aiming to change that and are
                        already having an impact in Washington. We're
                        ready to expand out, building this into a broad,
                        independent, diverse coalition and would love to
                        involve you. Starting with you joining us at our
