I was prodded to try my hand at joining noisebridge. Here's some details about
who I am:
I've visited a total of three times in my life:
* 4 years ago during Camp KDE, where I was visiting for the lightning talks
and had heard about hackerspaces but never visited one before
* Last Friday, where I hung out with some of the folks while we watched 30c3
on the screen
* Today, where some newbies came in, there didn't seem to be any members
willing to gave a tour, so I showed them around. They seemed satisfied.
I'm not from anywhere near the SF area. I'm actually from Akron, Ohio, where I
help out with the hackerspace we've been growing out there: SYNHAK. I try my
best to encourage adaptation of lot of Noisebridge's essential elements there,
such as do-ocracy, consensus, and excellence. Noisebridge has been a huge
inspiration and role model for my goals of SYNHAK since the founding of it 2.5
My next big projects are starting a coalition of northeast Ohio/northwest
Pennsylvania hackerspaces, along with helping the folks start up uFabLab in
Geauga, OH and CanHax in Canton, OH. Sometimes I'm known to say encouraging
things to the people working on Maker's Alliance in Cleveland.
I like to build robots, 3d printers, hackerspaces, infrastructure, and
If I was in the bay area for longer than a week, I'd contribute a lot more to
Noisebridge. I do plan on visiting for a month sometime in 2014, provided that
I can find some cheap temporary housing.
