Hello,

A long time lurker de-lurking here to stand up for non-members and radical
openness:

I disagree.

There's no way we can distribute tokens as widely as possible to prevent
disallowing awesome new people.  It's not uncommon for me to meet people
from out of town who make a point to visit noisebridge for their first
time.  How could you have any confidence that you know how they discovered
noisebridge?

The best bet, it seems, would be to put the access instructions on the
front page of the wiki.  Then the question becomes: What good does this
accomplish?

(As a caveat, I am only in the space about once a month, and I mostly
ignore discuss until recently, so I don't have a lot of context of the
difficulties of openness.)

regards.
