[Noisebridge-discuss] The epic LED lighting thread

Noisebridge has a lighting problem. The house lights are single bulb
outlets that are janky, harsh, and don't provide a lot of light. I would
like to throw some effort into fixing them, but feel like there are
plenty of opinionated people willing to fight tooth and nail about their
beliefs behind such things.

So let's discussion solutions for lighting fixtures and actual lights...

Requirements:

* Serviceable by Noisebridge with no real technical knowledge on how to
make electronics go, so the form factor will be light bulbs (E26)
* Low power consumption
* Most light
* Lighting isn't harsh
* Affordable and long lasting, under $20 for a bulb that can last at
least 10 years

The Philips bulbs are good except for price...

Fixtures are a different matter. I think having 3 bulbs per spot where
the current house lights are at makes sense, but I haven't really found
anything good. This is the closest but I don't think having it be a spot
light is super helpful...

So, who's got suggestions and neat links?
