I agree those are among the best of Noisebridge's features! Those are 
the only reasons i keep participating.

Jim, it was great to have you at the Noise Hack a year ago! but I rarely 
see you at nb otherwise. You don't seem to use the space anymore. Are 
you still a Member?

So you feel that Noisebridge is successful and just fine? I don't know, 
Jim, everything's broken, stolen, or all over the floor. I find it 
nearly impossible to get any actual hacking done at NB.

Jim, i don't think any of those efforts were successful. The other night 
i was there, there was a dude alternately sleeping and stealing stuff, 
and clearly on drugs.

Jim, are you saying most NB attrition is due to too many rules? Can you 
give an example of that?
