[Noisebridge-discuss] Please fund my kickstarter to relocate to Ace Monster Toys

We are actually open to the general public for free scheduled several times
a week (calendar's on the website), and outside of that if you post on the
mailing list / irc channel / etc generally someone will be more than happy
to let you in and show you around and hack on stuff with you. We just
decided we didn't want to do the free for all, door's always open, anyone
can walk in off the street unsupervised. The downside is we don't grow as
fast, the upside is people feel better about donating nice equipment to us,
and you don't have to worry about stuff disappearing.
