Projects Hub will provide a complete list of projects and their statuses, transcluded or automatically imported from category:projects

Projects[edit | edit source]

Projects are undertakings by individuals or working groups. Most projects are do-ocratic, however Projects for Awesomeness, which have great impact on the space and the community, require consensus. Projects can be digital infrastructure (i.e. BBS, Discord), Community Resources (i.e Circuit Hacking Mondays, The Woodshop), Art Projects (i.e the Flaschentaschen). This page provides a complete list of all documented projects, sorted by status. A project can have 1 of 4 different statuses: Initiated means that the project is a work in progress, Active means that the project is being actively maintained, Complete is for projects that do not need maintinence, and Ghost is for projects that may be brought back should anybody take initiative. In order to make a project on the wiki, click Make a Project

If some object or project is appearing non-functional and appears to be without stewardship, a parking ticket may be downloaded from [here], printed, & placed upon it with a date added and reason for the ticket. The owner of the project/object then has 30 days from the date of the ticket to claim the project or else it is free game to remove from the space.

Five_Minutes_of_Fame is the perfect place to share your projects! With 10 5 minute talks in an hour every third Thursday of the month, 5MoF is rushed, under prepared, and full of Noisebridge Charm. Sign up on the wiki page to present your project at the next 5moF!

Initiated Projects[edit | edit source]

  • NoiseCurtain
  • Send something to space (or more likely to a really high altitude via balloon)! Maybe we could run a server on it so we can communicate with it and score a "First X in space" accomplishment. Really what I want is to build something to take this sort of picture. (edited)
  • Gadget to help you remember when you lost something in your house, and where
