You should read the meeting instructions forthwith!
Don't forget to post the meeting notes to the wiki and e-mail the discussion list with a short summary.

These are the notes from the The 272nd Meeting of Noisebridge. Note-taker: JC; Moderator: Danny.


Explanation of how the meeting works.

Hat of doom points to someone to explain Noisebridge.

Everything is up for change, in legal terms were a 501c3, exist thru and depend on donations, be excellent to each other.

99% of things are done thru, do-ocracy or sudo-leadership: just do it, ignore the little voices in your head. The other pillar of Noisebridge is process, for when we have to decide on something for the whole community.

Explanation of consensus.

Shiatsu moderation technique and attempt to get these things done quickly/soon.

Financial Report

Consensus items

Proposals from last week


  • Discussion about history of keypad, and 24/7 or variable time parameters. This is about using a code to buzz someone in from upstairs, not related to using a code to let yourself in downstairs.
  • Discussion about just doing this at night docraticlly, and not go thru consensus.
  • Anonymous block by proxy on the table.
  • Jake would like to see this consensused on when the time is right.
  • Non-capital-C-consensus agreement to take the keypad out of promiscuous mode immediately, with the expectation that someone will improve Baron so that we have you need a code in the evenings and at night, but any button will open the door during the day.
  • We will re-visit the issue next week.

Proposals for next week

Tony Longshanks LeTigre

  • Tom proposes that Tony Longshanks LeTigre is unwelcome at Noisebridge. He is prohibited from entering the space or participating in the community.
  • Suggestion that we should use different language to differentiate this from other bans (based on the possibility of redemption). Patches welcome.
  • Jake would like Noisebridge to immediately pay back the landlord for the cost of Tony's escape, and not to even consider re-admiting him until he pays us back for that.

Discussion about throwing people out policy as consensus item, moved to discussion
