It sounds like a good idea from my perspective.  It's like teaching the
homeless to fish vs giving them handouts now.  The lockers would bring in
an additional $216 to Noisebridge per month ($9 x 24).  From what I've seen
on the mailing list, thieves seemed more interested in consumer hardware
instead of the hacking projects on shelves.  Sure Al could donate $500 to
Noisebridge today, but his idea gets NB more money in the long run.
