        99.9999% of founders of&nbsp;startups also do not get rich (just

        If you're looking to get rich as a primary goal, then&nbsp;this email
        list is probably not the best suited&nbsp;for&nbsp;your goals.&nbsp; On the
        other hand, if you're interested in exploring and (ultimately)
        doing what you&nbsp;love, whether or not it makes you money (and with
        a decent possibility that it may), then you've found the right
        place!<br>

        In any case, welcome to San Francisco.&nbsp;&nbsp;Since, from your short
        description, it sounds like it is home for awhile, I hope you
        will love it here.&nbsp; You are always welcome at Noisebridge, as
        long as you follow our one rule:&nbsp; Be excellent to each other.&nbsp;

        Not just programming, but also cooking, sewing, craft, art,

        areas of interest are explored and supported at Noisebridge.<br>

          &gt; Ultimately, what defines you as a geek is your
          involvement in geeky things.<br>
          &gt; <br>
          &gt; A good start is learning a programming language.
          Noisebridge has<br>
          &gt; classes you can attend and a library. There are also
          various meetup<br>
          &gt; groups that hold "introduction to programming" classes.<br>
          &gt; <br>
          &gt; Startups do not (always) mean having fun and getting rich
          (unless<br>
          &gt; you're the founder), and Noisebridge is not really the
          place to look<br>
          &gt; for it. If you talk to YCombinator, they should be able
          to point you<br>
          &gt; to the right place.<br>
