The 117th Meeting of Noisebridge


  • Moderator: Al S.
  • Note-Taker: Glen J.


Introduction and Names[edit]


  1. Frantisek: The server room (DJ Booth) has been repurposed to a tea room; feel free to help paint. Someday, someone will repurpose it into something else.
  2. Mike: Noisehorn has been placed by the hack shelves for people to make Noisebridge announcements.
  3. Sai: I drilled a hole in the bathroom door [frame] so the lock goes all the way in now.
  4. Glen: Now my dues are paid up, may I request a key and a hack shelf?
    • Spin off discussion: You don't have to be a member to use a hack shelf. The only benefits of being a member is "paying dues" and "participating in the consensus process."
  5. A lot of new people were present from either "off the street" or for the Origami workshop.

Financial Report[edit]

Questions were asked about involving Al more in the treasure position. Talk of co-treasurer and/or treasurer happened. Jeffery was not at the meeting, so more discussion was to occur off list. After that discussion, a new discussion item was scheduled for the next week.
