Introduction and Names
What Noisebridge is about
Very brief primer on Noisebridge consensus process
What's Going On at Noisebridge
One short sentence about each of the following:
- Circuit Hacking Mondays (8PM, 83c)
- Machine Learning ?Wednesdays? (8PM, 2169)
- Year 1 Open Hacker House - October 2nd, 6pm - 11pm - Showing off cool hacked up stuff from the first year.
- Security group - Thursdays 8PM except when 5MoF happens
- Moving is done!
- Hard drive collection for germany ("refer to email")
- Electrical at 2169
- Internets at 2169
Scattered reports of intermittent problems with wireless access, mostly due to users tunneling traffic out for privacy reasons. status.noisebridge.net thinks that the DSL circuit is stable now, and what should be the last of the AP problems should be ironed out now.
- Access control at 2169
The maglocks have been delivered and we know how to hook them up, but a part needs to be fabricated to install them due to a defect in the door frame downstairs.
RFID card order cancelled pending the maglock problem being solved, and as a side effect this buys time to get images printed on the RFID cards. A limited number of key fob tokens are available now.
- SCADA at 2169
Need help unjacking the laptops we'll be using. Contact Dr. Jesus.
The crackhead tester machine is over on the shelf and can be installed downstairs as soon as the maglock controller is installed.
- A la NIMBY patches, Noisebridge should have patches.
- Can we shorten the membership binder reading? Right now it's tedious and annoying because we have a huge number of people in there who aren't around and who we don't expect to be around. I have some ideas for this. -nils
- Arse Elektronika workshop would like to reserve one of the small rooms on Sunday October 4 from 12 noon to 10PM (probably less). We already OK'd Arse Elektronika workshops generally, this item is just about reserving one of the small rooms for it.
- pre-proposal for two dead-tree libraries, a la share and hack shelves: one dead-tree library contains books that have core information (e.g. TCP-IP illustrated, books on essential technologies...) and that we care for--read at noisebridge but do not take away, do not mark or otherwise alter; the other dead-tree library is "hackable"--take 'em home, bring 'em back or not, rip out pages, anything goes. the core library ought to be fairly small, most magazines and books should belong to the "hackable" library. i have two interests: one is i like being able to depend on information (and tools) being in place; the other is that i have a large set of books that i believe contains a few really useful books, and i've promised the people who gave them to me that i'd make a best effort to see that the valuable ones have a home for public access, and what better place than the noisebridge library.

- Corporate sponsorship of events at Noisebridge -- do people have issues with this concept? (This would be events at Noisebridge that a company would sponsor. Not an event that a company would like to host at Noisebridge).
- Board elections soon?
- Fundraiser at Cellspace
