[Noisebridge-discuss] Noisebridge-discuss March 30th Fundraiser? Yay or nay?

Hi robb.

And noisebridge.

I would like to share some things.

Robb is someone I met during Occupy. He almost singlehandedly managed the
finances of OccupySF, as well as being involved with the media team and
having a finger in many other pies (ha! get it? Occu-pie!) as well.

He would frequently schedule meetings at times when most people happened to
be unavailable.  There was no small consternation over his decision to take
sole control of the occupysf at gmail alias.

There is also the matter of the missing money - at least $9000 is
unaccounted for. This is the money that I was told, by Finance, was
remaining at the conclusion/diffusion of the movement, ultimately never to
be seen again. This is in addition to monies that went missing during the
course of things.

While I do not know what happened to that money, and have little personal
beef with Robb,

I do not think it would be the best plan for him, or some mysterious 3rd
party presented by him, to handle money on noisebridge's behalf.

My .02
