Noisebridge Exhibition Preparations, Upgrades, and Cleanup.[edit]

There are several ways that we can fix and upgrade the space. The Exhibition and Ball creates a nice deadline to attempt to get some of them done. Some of them are more general in that the would be good fixes for the space anytime between now and the Exhibition, and some are more specific to the Exhibition and Ball. If you would like to take on any of the following on, please add a note next to the task. If you would like to add a task, please do so.

If you complete one of these tasks, please strike it through. Please also consider sharing your progress, requests for help, and completions with the discussion list. We should be letting more people know, when we make the space better.

I'm trying to use the following format, but of course, improvise as needed.

Promotional Materials and Artwork[edit]

  • Shirt Design for Exhibition
    • Description: Once we have selected a logo for the Exhibition, it will need to be arranged for a t-shirt so that we may print it. We have various options for the printing. For our Noisebridge Shirts, we use East Bay Screen Print. However it may be a good idea for a small batch of various sizes to use place that lets us upload the design and then anyone can purchase them as needed, similar to what the Stupid Hackathon people did.

Ball Decorations and Setup[edit]

  • Ball Decorations
    • Description: We will probably want some decoration for the Ball.
    • Owner: None

General Noisebridge improvements and fixes[edit]

  • Clean up and add to wall of photos at entry
    • Description: We should add some more collages of photos to the ones already by the door. More picture frames, and picture hanging hardware, are needed and a collection of photos of Noisebridge people who would like to be added to the wall need to be printed and arranged. Also, two of the existing frames are missing glass which would be good to replace.
    • None
  • Signage update for the refrigerator
    • Description: The signage on the refrigerator could be unified and organized in to a nicer more unified collection of messages, maybe using the vinyl cutter
    • Owner: None
  • Suspended Signs for work areas
    • New LED / Acrylic lasercut and etched signs are going to be built and suspended from the ceilings that indicate the major work areas of the space.
    • Owner: Jarrod
  • Typical Cleaning
    • Description: There will be a cleaning day the weekend before the exhibition to purge unused items from the space and give it a cleaning in preparation for setting up for the Exhibition and Decorating for the Ball.
    • Owner: None
  • Dirty Shop Organization and tools
    • Description: The Dirty Shop has had some new tools donated recently. The shop needs to be cleaned up and the new tools need to be arranged and set up for use. The new tools are: the router table, band saw, and CNC machine. The table saw lost a foot if it can't be found, one should be ordered. Also a organization and inspection of the other tools in the space may be in order.
    • Owner: Jarrod can help with this, but this is probably a multi person task.
  • Church Classroom Projector
    • Description: The projector in Church Classroom is not working from some reason and needs troubleshooting
    • Owner: Lee
  • Hackshelves - sort and purge
    • Description: The hack shelves are starting to overflow again. It is time to sort and prune the better items from the shelves and e-waste the others. This should probably be combined with an e-wast run.
    • Owner: None
  • Laser Cutter materials - sort and purge
    • The claimed and unclaimed laser cutter materials outside Sparkle Forge and by the sink need sorting and probpably need to be moved to allow better access to the sink. Some of the "do not hack" materials have been sitting for a long time and need to be reclaimed, with some notice (2 weeks?), for the space or discarded.
    • Owner: None
  • Move Jarrod's goddamn pile of steel
    • Description: Jarrod needs to move the steel he bought for MakerFaire and his CNC table project. This needs to go somewhere safer and out of the way.
    • Owner: Jarrod
  • Network drop and Workstation improvements for Sparkle Forge
    • Description: currently the network cable for the laser cutter workstation runs through one of the windows. During construction a network cable was run through the wall for this purpose. While this doesn't have to be the one used, the cabling to the workstation needs to be cleaned up. If other workstations are planned for this room, perhaps a switch should be installed.
    • Owner: None
  • Sparkle Forge Workstation and Table arrangement
    • Description: The laser cutter needs to be moved closer to the walls in Sparkle Forge and a smaller table for the laser cutter workstation needs to be found or built for the workstation. The original plan for this workstation was to have most of it wall mounted to free up even more room. The goal is to make the tool shelves easy to access while someone is using the laser cutter.
    • Owner: None
  • Sparkle Forge Sound System
    • Description: There are speakers on the shelves in Sparkle Forge. If we have an amplifier in the space, these could be set up so people could play music from their phones while they work.
    • Owner: None
  • Workshops phone and audio boxes
    • Description: Near the doors to the workshops, it would be nice to have a semi enclosed chamber where people can charge their phones and connect to the sound systems, while protecting their phones from dust
    • Owner: None
  • Secure Sparkle Forge scrap
    • Description: the long steel sections in Sparkle Forge need to be more restrained, similar to the conduit in the dorkroom.
    • Owner: None
  • Sink area wall cleanup
    • Description: The wall near the sink is still suffering from being part of an unfinished art project. The excess joint compound should be chipped, scraped, and sanded off the walls. The walls should then be patched at the corner and repainted.
    • Owner: None
  • Decommission the Entry Area office supplies dresser
    • Description: The office supplies dresser by the entryway needs to be replaced with an open shelving and labeled bins solution for storing office supplies.
    • Owner: None
  • Clean the stairs
    • Description: Some oil was dripped on the stairs. Hopefully the stains can be wiped up some and the treads and risers of the stairs cleaned. This is a good task for the cleaning day.
    • Owner: None
  • Jamba Juice Kiosks - out of order?
    • Description: Running Doom on the Two Jamba Juice Kisoks was great, but they don't seem to be running anymore. It would be nice for them to be running again during the Exhibition.
    • Owner: None
  • Clean up wiring at entryway
    • Description: The wires around the door need some arranging and cleanup, but without breaking the door bell, door buzzer, and access control system.
    • Owner: None
  • Entry Projector setup
    • The projector at the entry should be working, but it we could have it doing something during the exhibition, like showing information about the exhibition. There was also previous talk about installing a ceiling outlet at the junction box in the ceiling near it.
  • Display Case clean up
    • Description: The display case could use some cleaning up. The LEDs should be remounted, the shelves and glass cleaned, and shirts and stickers arranged, and old items purged from the area.
    • Owner: None
  • Enable photo output mode on Ordibooth
    • Description: Ordibooth currently prints out drawings on the AxiDraw. Acquire and enable a small photobooth printer as an alternative output.
    • Owner: Lee
  • Elevator Gate wiring cleanup
    • Description: The wiring around the elevator gate needs to be better laid out, and ideally set up so that opening the wooden door panel doesn't require disconnection of the wiring.
    • Owner: None
  • Condense Items under electronics work benches
    • Description: There are boxes and piles of items under the electronics benches. These need to be sorted, purged, and organized.
    • Owner: None
  • Fox Lounge Electrical Cleanup
    • Description: Some of the wiring in the Fox Lounge would be improved by better routing and relocation of switch boxes.
    • Owner: None
  • Track Lighting in Library?
    • Description: It appears that someone is starting to set up some track lighting in the library. This would be a nice addition to complete, especially if the lights were on a dimmer.
    • Owner: None
