I have say, given the level of emailing on nb-discuss, I was a bit
surprised when I dropped by the space earlier this week and it seemed
tidier, and quieter, and more people-quietly-wiring-stuff-together
Just a reminder that there's a mailing list for noisebridge @ night
set up (but not really used) at
https://www.noisebridge.net/mailman/listinfo/night -- and it may make
sense to start up a wiki page also.
