Our One Rule is to Be Excellent to Each Other.

(What does that mean? How does the Anti-Harassment Policy fit into this? Are we SURE we know what being Excellent is? This is an important and fundamental conversation at Noisebridge, so let's give it like 120 seconds.)


Everyone at Noisebridge is a participant at Noisebridge.

(What does that mean? How do you get a door key? Access to Slack, Discuss, etc?)

Guilds Definition[edit]

Guilds are how groups at noisebridge organize.

(What is a guild? How do you join one? etc)

Philanthropist definition[edit]

A Philanthropist at Noisebridge has earned enough trust from the community to open and close the space.

(What does that mean? What do we expect from Philanthropists? How do you become one? etc)

Membership Definition[edit]

Membership in Noisebridge entails community Trust in Consensus.

(What does that mean? What do we expect from Members? How do you become a Member? etc)


Consensus is how the Noisebridge Membership may change how Noisebridge works.

(How does Consensus work? What types of things are good for formal Consensus? What is small-c consensus? What is a "block"?)

space planning

Discussion Item 1[edit]

space planning

Robot- stuff needds to go in the space, then we need to figure out where it goes based on imput from the guilds. What does each grop need. how do we get everyone involved. What things might need to change.

Relay- Can we designat things in VR?

Pyconaut-will 3D model new space in VR over next few weeks.

JD- Lets have a live noisebridge 3D space planning in sketchup

Dan- HHow do we prioritiese the space. First floor has a lot of open space that we can.

First floor is the core are as second floor is not ADA accessible. We have at least 12 spaces we need to allow access to. we need modularity until we can get second floor accessiable. How can we enable that.

Rikke- X already measured the space and posted it online

X- Current priority is moving everything, and we need to pile everything into the new space before we try to plan stuff. Can we break the space up into smaller sections like 500 sqft, and what stuff is most critical to have access to. Lets focus on storage right now.

Upstairs rooms are currently storage of 0-3D printer and gaming 1 sewing and library 2 electronics 3music and audio

first floor canvas is about 20 by 50 feet that can be spliit into 2 500sqft rooms for the time being
