Q: Is Noisebridge trademarked? A: It's not a registered trademark, but trademark law automatically gives legal ownership.
Eric Steinburg - has two signatures, John + [Illegible] but is legit and up for membership (due: 2011-06-01)
Membership for Eric Steinburg
Believes in beer, but is anti-lime in beer.
Eric is an engineer and artist, does all the AV work for SF City Hall
He is also producing a TV show [ break for Amanda providing bread pudding ]
Q: How do you feel about consensus? A: I see it every day at work -- politics is a process of consensus.
Q: How do you feel about blocking? A: Blocking is necessary some times.
Eric goes outside for discussion
Has donated chemicals to Noisebridge, been seen around the space, multiple contacts
Consensus reached: Eric is now a member of Noisebridge.
Small things have gone missing - laptop charger, phone, a laptop off member shelves
What are thoughts on providing noisebridge lockers on member shelves?
Mitch: stuff probably disappears at Noisebridge through chaos rather than malice
Lots of people know how to pick locks at Noisebridge
Mike: better labelling for member shelves? Still doesn't solve stuff "moving" such as Mike's expensive footstool
Kelly + Will: is that if you have stuff you don't want to go missing, it's fine to buy a container and take measures to secure it. Just know that some people might take that as a challenge.
No consensus reached, best handled do-ocratically.
Some discussion on better labelling for member shelves, possibly adding a curtain.
