"noisebridge has a lot to offer the homeless" is not at all the point, I
think.  Lots of places have lots of things to offer the homeless; and it
seems to be a repeating pattern that wherever people offer a space to the
homeless, the homeless make the space something nobody else wants to be in.
 this has happened to the public libraries, it has happened to public
parks, it has happened to all the lovely public squares around city hall.

Honestly, I do not feel at all obligated to provide services to the
homeless at Noisebridge.  Lots of spaces provide services to the homeless
here in San Francisco.  We should focus on providing services to hackers.

And before someone says "what about homeless hackers" maybe just save your
cleverness for a giant robot, hmmm?
