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.)

Discussion Item -2[edit]

Are we closed check in

Discussion Item -1[edit]

Permits and SFMade discussion

Nothing new, currently waiting on a revision from naomi

Dan- What are the costs, and can we set aside a budget

Corey- How would we lay out the shops

   front to back ventalation, so we should have the dirtiest shops in the far back, and to have equiptment be on pallets or carts so that we can bring stuff to the front.  We need to Keep a clear lane for ADA and general space movement.

   How will we pay them?

Pyconaut- what extra details do we need?

Discussion Item 0[edit]

How has bravespace changed since we have moved online

Doing the same as if we were in person, Be exelent to eachother, and do not harass people

Pyconaut- virtual harassment has been part of

Discussion Item 1[edit]


We have an offer to install an elevator at Noisebridge for about 100k, might be a bit more for the extra work nessasary to prep the area (landing area), and will probably be close to 120k.

We should probably start looking for grants and do some fundraising.

We also need to create a Big C Concensus item for setting this money aside so that we can move forward, and maybe set a deadline for other options.

We want it to be done correctly (better to pay more then to deal with what happened at 2169). We could also create a good relationship with the installer

Dan- If we pay 120k, then over our entire 10 year lease that would be $1000 a month, which is not much for allowing many people to explore the whole new space.

Discussion Item 2[edit]

Muralz and art and themez

   Chickens and Sutro Tower

   Projection mapping for art 

   Putting canvas on walls for murals 
   There could even be a system for auctioning off the 

   Why not do both, and also there will be a lot less mural space then people think due to how much stuff we have in the space. (music room has acoustic modification needed, electronics area will have a wall of parts, machine shops will probably have tools on the walls)

   Living walls would be cool

   Living bioluminesent mycelium floors and walls?

   LED floor

   What other art themes- 
   Sutro Tower
   Gold (red)
   California native animals and plants
   San Francisco Garter Snake

Discussion Item 3[edit]

Cohacking and livestreaming

What is a good way to cohack and stream at the same time?

How is jitsi doing

How do we let people know beforehand that the event will be streamed

Pyconaut- you could use the meetup to let people know that it will be streamed publicly.

Will be tomorrow at 7:30

Discussion item 4[edit]

Add call in feature to Jitsi

And add in Etherpad

adding mumble for a listen only room wouldLab be cool as well
