Yep, there are many people who come in and do nothing productive with their
time. I would diagnose about 90 percent of Noisebridge with ADD if that
were the case. Maybe perhaps if there were more desktops and laptops for
everyone to use, this wouldn't be a problem, seeing as we have so many of
them lying around, again collecting dust.

Now may be a good time to respond by saying what I was working on is the
Community for Human Excellence and Resources (C.H.E.R.) project. It pretty
much covers everything under the sun in better defining the culture of the
Noisebridge community. Feel free to stop me, because after all some may not
consider that hacking.... but I will say in my defense, Noisebridge needs
I got my inspiration after a guy at the Country Club, a sober space in the
Castro, told me how they allow drunk people to come in and hang out and
drink, but they heavily discourage it and know how to make people who are
drunk feel very thoroughly uncomfortable to the point where they'd
willingly want to leave. But then again I'm just crazy...
Just a thought..... ______________________________________________
