[edit] Space & Time

One (maybe, later, two) small exclusive rooms. Large shared space with Dimension 7. 2 bathrooms (one with shower). D7 will schedule events (sometimes weekly) which will use the large shared space and usually includes on-site filming and/or web streaming. These events are typically at night from 6pm-midnight. A couple members of D7 live at the location.

[edit] Public Transit

3 blocks from Embarcadero bart/muni station. Short muni ride (or approx. 1.4 mile walk) from Caltrain.

[edit] Notes

This would be primarily shared space. The space that would be available for exclusive Noisebridge use (lockable) is about a 12x18 foot space with very low ceilings, I guess about 6 feet or 6 & a couple inches. The remainder of the space consists of one large, high room (warehousey) maybe 50 x 70 feet, plus a number of separate rooms around the edge which are mostly exclusively used by other Dimension 7 collaborators. Some of these may become available in the not too distant future.

Dimension 7 is a kind of collective of video professionals. They're looking for other people to join the collective, rather than just rent a room invisibly. They don't require us to be video professionals of course; there does seem to be interesting potential for collaboration & knowledge-sharing.

[edit] Pros

  • The Dimension 7 people seem very interesting and we could probably do some cool stuff together.
  • Great space for parties.

[edit] Cons

  • Sharing with people who are making their living. They'd probably claim dibs on resources and I personally would have trouble fighting that; after all, we're all 'just' hobbyists.
  • We'd have to completely clean up our projects every time we stopped working on them, because they'd be in the way of other people's work.
  • Lack of much advance knowledge of other uses of the space - they often schedule things only a day or so in advance.
  • People live there - although in fairness, they'd likely be OK with, or at least used to, random noise & activity at all hours
  • Their prime work hours are about 6PM to midnight, the place isn't used that much by Dimension 7 during the day. That likely overlaps lots with our prime work hours
