A good question to ask ones self whenever anything regarding frustration
and a hacker space (or any space for that matter) comes up is, "What
requires me to continue existing inside of this space (as oppose to many
other open spaces) to the point where I observe myself to become
frustrated?"

Remember that Noisebridge isn't mission critical, and by design doesn't
work for everyone 100% of the time they're there. Leaving for somewhere
else that works for you is always an ok option, over attempting to
change something that's grown quite organic into what it is now.

Take myself for instance, I've hardly set foot in the space over the
last year, and I'm a founding member. I can't be productive with my own
work in that environment anymore. Does that mean Noisebridge is broken,
simply because it doesn't work for me? But it's working so well for so
many other people, most of the time. I'm happy Noisebridge continues to
exist, because it gives hackers who can work within its ridiculousness a
space to form community and build questionable things.
