    The circumstance at 83c was similar to 2169: a door 
that is locked and people inside who pretty much let 
in anyone who knocked. 
    As I understand things, The discussions people had 
in the planning phase included an acknowledgement of a 
publicly open place and its foreseeable problems. 
    Note that AMTD is pretty much a private club, and 
deliberately so to test a model different from 
Noisebridge's.
