Discussion Items[edit]

We took the temperature of Noisebridge. People felt things were stable and pretty good these days, but the communities was a bit scattered and didn't always know all the cool things that go on --- people don't use nb-discuss to share stuff any more.

Suggestions: a big party, a new mailing list, noisebridge university (which Jesse and Jake are working on), actually use the blog, a primary reduction party.

Kelly agrees to set up
