Consensus items[edit]

Proposals from last week [edit]

  • Proposal from Martin: Noisebridge should purchase Gorilla Racks replacing the current selection of member shelves of the same approximate dimensions. This is estimated at approximately $1200-$1800.
    • Some folks support these shelves, but many folks do not think that we should spend Noisebridge finds.
    • RAYC suggests that he may be able to cover this with a private collection
    • This measure is not the consensus of Noisebridge.

Proposals for next week [edit]

  • Proposal from Tom : Noisebridge renews its lease on the 2169 Mission space, increasing our rent from $3600 to $3960.

Discussion Items[edit]

  • Shelf organization: Tom proposes a shelf organization scheme with a database, filing, and paperwork. Tom volunteers one hour a week to maintian this. Others are skeptical; and suggest coordination with Jake, those who propose champion the gorilla shelves, and other stakeholders.
