[Noisebridge-discuss] Noisebridge residency

I didn't want to color the discourse at the start with my opinion, but I
think this is a probably bad, definitely complicated idea. (But I want to
experiment and discuss ideas that are good and maybe-not-so-good.)
Historically, for Noisebridge this didn't work out when Frantisek was
living at the space for months. He cleaned up after himself and did some
sweeping, but the space and bathrooms were still messy and cluttered as
often as they were somewhat tidy.

The difference with this idea is that it would be publicly known and
accepted for someone to on occasion be sleeping overnight at the space, and
they would still have their own apartment (they wouldn't be living at
Noisebridge as their primary address.)

My main stipulation is that this person would be the *only* one sleeping in
the space, and would also ensure others are not sleeping at the space or
causing trouble at night.

I would definitely want a lot of things planned out and decided beforehand
about how this would work. But in general, I don't think it would work.
