Could this not happen on Tuesday? We're trying to push this sort of 
interpersonal conflict stuff out of the general Tuesday meeting because it 
causes a huge energy sink for everyone involved and makes things Very Much Not 
Fun.

We've been trying to encourage having a Safe Space Working Group meeting on 
Mondays instead of Tuesdays for exactly this purpose :)

Since Matt and thex are both people I respect immensely and have seen them be 
the most excellent of individuals in the last ~year of being around 
Noisebridge, I'm offering my own time and energy to be a steward of mediation.

Rikke, it'd be super neat if we could get together off-list and talk about this 
since you seem to be the one with the most information right now.
