Financial Report[edit]

Anarchist societies under a capitalist state need money to survive and thrive, yo.

Spending Needs[edit]

Gotta spend money on XYZ (i.e. Gate, wiring etc.). WHO CAN SIGN THE CHECK OR LEND THE CREDIT CARD!?!?! It doesn't matter if we agree to do something and it can’t be paid for. Wolf - Is thinking of purchasing roller-sweeper thing, will ask in slack before anything goes forward Moof - Will consider getting a bunch of velcro cable ties for music room HB has some velcro ties. Hit me up.

Fundraising Update[edit]

How's it all going

Big C Consensus Items[edit]

Nobody likes 3 hour meetings, only explain if people ask.

Moof checks the wiki, reports there are no current ones

Consensus Items [edit]

Only for talking about Big C consensus items, small c consensus items should be discussed with people at the space at the time of the change/new item.



This is a show happening this wednesday! Hyperpop! 6pm -9PM (ish)!

16$ online tickets, 14$ at the door. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Noisebridge will be generally open as usual (except the woodshop and laser cutter).

Tours will be given to concertgoers before music starts, as part of program.

20% of ticket sales will go to Noisebridge directly
Eric will sell food, we will let him decide how much of the proceeds he wants to give to NB?

Mikayla has volunteered to be door-person, keeping an eye on people and selling tickets. HB proposes giving out wristbands at the door to 21+ attendants to buy drinks - suggestion accepted, we will do this.

Mikayla will discuss with Mark post-meeting about details of being event-support "staff"

Proposed Events[edit]

Adriel & Moof - Digifae@Noisebridge - see above Aja - post scarcity economic systems meetup. about 25 people. Event would be 10th of November, around 4pm for a few hours.

Mark - 10th is a Thursday. Doesn't seem to be any conflicts. I say go ahead.

TJ - Wiki cleaning and social media meetup?

Moof - definitely want to help. We need to get Rack ppl involved. Elan said there were issues with this holding certain things up. We could call the meetup "cyberbridge"

TJ - There are things like automating wiki updates, discord bots, other social media posting tools, etc

[some discussion about random tangential technical thing] A thing about the thing pt II

Okay, so a DM between interested folks will happen then a date will be decided and a broader announcement made.

Meeting Format[edit]

Mark - how did last week's meeting go?

Elan - I wanted to try it, but there weren't really tons of ppl at the meeting. Also realized the breakout thing wasn't really conducive to the online/offline hybrid thing. So overall I think its better with a large in-person group for the unconference style thing.

guilds section in meetings[edit]

Mark - I like the idea of reaffirming what guilds are, but what do guilds need to talk about in the meeting??

Moof - Maybe "looking for maintainers" announcements should happen in the guilds section. To encourage/incentivize that kind of discussion happening.

Mark asks mikayla what kind of guilds they want to be a part of..

Mikayla - code guild? It kind of died tho... :( Philip has been busy lately.

Mark - interested in organizing anything yourself?

Mikayla - a bit busy with life atm to be an organizer of things. but i want to help with stuff where i can and participate in things!

Elan- How do you see the guilds section happening?

Mark - something like it is now but with more of an empahasis on what is the general "status" of the various guilds. So an ask for maintainers is a good addition.

old stuff to donate, wondering about donation policy[edit]

working cd player not working integrated tuning amp, could potentially be fixed working 5 cd player working dvd player crate tx15 battery powered guitar amp

Mark - post about these things on the discord, see if anyone responds. If no one responds, chances are no one wants said thing(s).

Potential consensus item[edit]

Elan wants to get ppl's opinions on a potential smoking on the patio ban?

Some noisebridgers feel it is not excellent (not to mention violates CA law)

Do-ocratic Task Board[edit]

Participation also means doing stuff to contribute to the space. Propose new tasks or pick some tasks from Github, from what needs to be done around you, or whatever, and see if someone will sign up to work on that task. Anyone can sign up and it's a great way to show you are contributing!
