jeffery is bribing people

what the hell is noisebridge about? talking about interesting noises at the door we're apparently also excel to each other, who knew? and we have to educate people, wtf did we get ourselves into?

we're a consensus driven organisation except when we vote blah blah, blue haired dude is talking about consensus

treasurer states we have approximately $13k in the bank as of now PAY YOUR DUES BITCHES OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES

what's going on at noisebridge? not much to say as people who are doing things are not at the meeting nonetheless, people still try to find stuff to talk about project euler, something that I couldn't hear what it was about people speaking foreign languages that no one understands shop class on fridays, learn how to use tools to build shit omg, bathroom progress (wondering why my text editor is auto correcting omg to omega hey, its a letter from a tiny asian writing from tiny bootcamp mike talking about a microscope to see tiny hair follicles

apparently there's a board election going on

seth and leif will count the ballots looks like we just made a huge mistake apparently the system we chose would only provide us one winner (doh). well that's just brilliant. talking about running the ballot again minus the previous winner.

there's a guy with some pink foam as a hat

people talking about stuff I can't hear

Rubin announces presents for Pumping Station One in chicago.

shannon talking about bathroom, apparently we're all pitching in to help with the bathroom. nightly workshops about how to build a bathroom, also talk about hacking scott's injury library, kitchen still in progress, kitchen to be done with bathroom

hey look, a new dude called scott who also happens to be a contractor wants to help with the buildout

talk about networking very confusing talk about networking stuff i don't understand

apparently its fucking cold in here.

nils brings out a hair drier. ani wants to continue video rendering in order to heat up her laptop to make her lap warm talk about electric snuggies, everyone cringes thinking we should have fire art in the space to warm us up heating subcommittee

no consensus items, yaaaaaaaay

sewing machines now have their own mailing list: nana needs hearing aids
