It is the zeroth meeting of Noisebridge! We have overflowed! Noone understands how everything can be built and set up when we've never had a meeting before!


Seth was the secretary. He is happy Danny is a co-worker again.

Tom has a new job. He is terrified! He has to make everyone anonymous!

Snail is anonymous.

Danny is typing this.

Nick is trying to get his book up on createspace.

Mike is living out of the area. He is a technowanderer. He is not a stock clerk, not a quartermaster, not an ombudsman.

Cliff, 32, Madison Wisconsin. Ragamuffin.

Carlos, I wrote COBOL and Pascal for profit. In personal time, I write Perl and Go. Supervising Mischief with a TV repair.

Short announcements and events[edit]

It is the AGM. We have celebratory chocolate, to take away of the taste of appeasing the state. California Secretary of State, this is YOUR NIGHT!
