I agree, and all of our hard work in rebuilding this past year is at stake.
Patrick says it best: we are in a very delicate time.
I haven't been around the past few weeks, and that's been OK because I have
been able to trust in there being a critical mass of good folks keeping the
space progressing in a positive way.
Now I am going away, returning in January -- just as many others are -- and
I really want to come back to a Noisebridge that doesn't again require
rebuilding due to sabotage and neglect.
There are good arguments, too, for keeping the space open IN ORDER to
protect it, because a closed Noisebridge is not all that safe either.
And it's not about trust in anyone as an individual. It's about trust the
robustness of the community organism when it suddenly loses a large
quantity of blood.
Whatever we do -- keep it open or close it for a couple of weeks -- either
way will be a leap of faith for all of us as a community.
