Super++ on FAA's comment!!!!!
AAMOF, Noisebridge should now be called Noisebridge Farm based upon
George Orwell's http://www.george-orwell.org/Animal_Farm/
Orwell's excellent classic now becomes just as much a must-read as the
new "24/7 please read and learn about it"
- Farm visionary Major (read Mitch A) effectively disappears from the scene
- The many definitely Excellent Snowball hackers are inevitably driven
out of the Farm (read The Space)
- Comrade Napolean (read Member Jake and other supporting Members)
enact new "More Improved" rules of Excellence
- ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS
(read ALL NB VISITING HACKERS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME
HACKERS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS excluding the ability to pay & consense)
... QED and so it happens...
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
