More of a reminder really. Sunday Streets Valencia st is July 30th. We need to get a group together to put a booth together! Check sunday-streets channel in discord if you want to help out!

Also an event called "Open Sauce" July 14-16th or something. Maker and science Youtubers expo. Noisebridge signed up for a booth there as well, and thus needs volunteers for that as well. Message @Arity or @Pyconaut on Discord! or check #open-sauce channel


Our One Rule is to Be Excellent to Each Other. (Reviewed on first Tuesday of month only)

What does that mean? Please see our page on excellence!

What does Excellence mean?

Seems that excellence is a concept that relates to how we treate eachother in and out of the space, and how we treat the space itself. Going above and beyond just "being respectful" - its about making the space better than you found it each time and responding to others with generosity, kindness and respect.

Aiming for perfection, where you land is excellence.

I will add that it also refers to a certain set of practice for handling conflicts. See Conflict Resolution page on the wiki as well for guidelines and most excellent practices!

Remember: You aren't the one who defines your own actions as excellent.

Anti-Harassment Policy & Community Standards of Excellence[edit]

Noisebridge has an Anti-Harassment Policy Everyone is expected to follow the Anti-Harassment Policy, please familiarize yourself with it.) TWO MINUTES MAX


  • What are guilds - briefly describe (much like the previous section on "Excellence")

Organized groups around topics or equipment like Sewing, Electronics and Gaming. Help to educate folks on best practices on using equipment.

New Members/Associate Members[edit]

What are they? Is anyone trying to become a Member or Associate Member? If not move on. No long discussions.

Membership is not required to be present at Noisebridge or use any equipment. Two levels of membership, capital M Members are responsible for the community.

TMoney - has been coming for a while, since the old space. wants to get more involved nowadays.

No one objects to TMoney - you are now an associate member!


== Discussion Item 1 == access control/ keys, deadbolts and fire escape

== Discussion Item 2 ==working groups to review policies around asking to leave/ 86, due process &tc.

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!
