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.)

stability is more importaint then speed.
some sort of high end lock (but multiple peopple can open it, or if a disaster happens, it can open itself if need be.)
Should be placed near parks and resivoirs.
Most of the features should be built into the unit in a way that can't be broken easily.
While the Jitsi server was breaking down Relay and Pyconaut talked about this while everyone left. Then Relay and Pyconaut could not speak much either
Discussion Item 2 Maybe we should make a survivalist guild
Pyconaut- Yes, and I think there are already a number of interested people in this idea
Self sufficiency is a good goal even in times of non disaster.
It helps the community become more resiallient, and have a smaller impack on the environment
Relay- It might be good to also work with people and organizations to discuss what we need right now. Many mutual aid organizations meet the needs of the failing capitalist system now and see the present as some sort of disaster
