Noisebridge adopts an Open-Source and Linux only policy.
We hereby decree by the power of Noisebridge, that only Linux and Open-Source projects are allowed, as influenced by Richard Stallman
"The Open Source Definition is clear enough..." - RMS
Richard Stallman worked together with Noisebridge, by explaining his policy on software development. We solely based this decision on his insight and wisdom into the topics of Open-Source projects and Linux.
"I believe in a world where technology is Open and allows us to share. Open-Source is the path to freedom. Life should be about sharing everything." - Justin D.
We are Noisebridge|
Noisebridge is an infrastructure provider for technical-creative projects, collaboratively run by its members. We are incorporated as a non-profit educational corporation for public benefit. We operate primarily in a 5,600 square-foot space located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share. Read more about Noisebridge or watch a short video...

After years of awkwardly prolonged adolescent angst, Jacob Applebaum released the public statement at an hastily constructed "emotional emergency" press conference, "I admit, _uT has always had sex with much more attractive women than myself, and unlike myself, He's got a motorcycle, He's been convicted of real computer crime and lets face it, while he was writing user-mode local descriptor table vulnerabilities, I was pretending I could actually write my own zero days! How do zero allocation heap overflows really work? I mean, c'mon, He's serving out a federal prison sentence for supplying exploits to the russian mob, even my constructed TSA histrionics can't beat how cool that is!". Acknowledging the Unix Terrorist's superior "skillz" and far more eleet 0daze, he admitted to everyone that his primary impact on the world has been convincing someone, really anyone, capable of breathing that they are actually really hackers, he now claimed to be a proponent of "hackers are people who hack".
|Create New Kinds of Sentience With Us!After years of research, Noisebridge researchers have successfully created automated dramatics, drawing from a corpus of dozens of posts tagged "drama" and anything ever written by Justin Doerr or Robert Chu, they were able to accurately recreate all the central features dramatic posts to Noisebridge|
the window and slamming doors and justall KINDS of drama. I\'m really glad I did, because we areerroneously making examples out of the space, not even the willingness to reorganize things, even if it offends any of you who know of websites to go and post their name to the community to get mypoint across? or can people willingly just fucking stop beingassholes?I\'m finished with my mom in Washington DC. Upon doing so I plan to do my dishes. I\'ve forgotten to do so and have publicly announced to Facebook that Ihate Robert Chu while I was doing around of dishes.. I don\'t feel as safe as Idid upon returning to Noisebridge and vent my personalproblems to random strangers, and I really wish that I am admitting that it\'s sortof starting to see this place turn to shit if I wenton the 85 page was actually childish and stupid. I brought upthe fact that they are alreadynaturally good at doing. Some stuff is beneficial to a small or large groupof individuals.I promise to break up my power point presentation out of nowhere my ADHD got the very best of my projects involving VMWare and asked forhelp, and someone taught me how to make up for his unexcellence in the process of hacking theHuman Resources binder that I\'m actuallyentirely aware of as a personal character flaw within myself. I\'m bravelywilling to publicly admit that I was reallyhappy with last week being relatively drama-free and I left with a man by the name of Ken Holden on Thursdayonward, the ongoing rumors of the space. Safely that is. We are providing everyone until MONDAY THE 13TH TOCOMPLY with us in person atNoisebridge. I am admitting that Imade a mistake of getting rid of all of the items that have beenplaced in or around the lovely city of SanFrancisco. IMO, I feel like every human beinghas the right to evolve into somebody that will someday provide somethingbeneficial to society. I personally had to get my life andactually realize what type of criticism is actually comingfrom people I do not want tobe disposed of.. I will strive to use her stun gun/cattle prod on the 85 page happen to be obnoxious about this. I am fairly chronically unemployed at the hackerspace, andpeople threatening to kill themselves or others, I don\'t even know,better yet people I don\'t hack all the drama went down. Likeeveryone else, I am committing myself to the point where now I\'m doneposting any more stuff on here. For at least walk through thatarea of the space as well. The thing that I can helpit. I\'m sick and tired of hearing people complaining aboutit being too cluttery and things being too cluttery and things being too disorganized even for myself tobe able to find shelter and talk with them one on one and help those who extensively use that areaof the space, moreover graduallywe can move on to and people who ARE \\"hackers\\" and full-time geniuses;I think it would be nice and all, but we\'d have to report is that who I really honestly don\'t care if it iserroneous.I may be a bit messy forjust a short period of time. I am willing to extend the deadline even further down the roadagainst my own will, due to the members\' shelves.We are taking all of you who know of websites to go and post their name and/or identity, simply becausesomeone could easily feel compelled enough to dislike them and click theedit button to add their name and/or identity, simply becausesomeone could easily feel compelled enough to dislike them and click theedit button to add their name to the list just to prove my overallpoint, someone already went ahead andjust repositioned already what appeared to be a lot of personal growth by coming here andconstantly educating myself, but contrary to what I have finished my notes on NonviolentCommunication and I left with a huge smile on myface because I noticed a lot todo with why I have been several instances when if the storm has calmed. The thing is for sure, the ultimate reasonwhy I come to Noisebridge and other really coolindividuals teach me things like what a \\"photon\\" is, or how Lasiksurgery works, or why I\'vebeen randomly lashing out over the internet or in a month, depending on how\\u00a0soon he wants to take it upon myself later toadd myself to the elevator, of inwhich you as an individual who hasextensive knowledge in this area of the distribution and/or abuse of crystalmethamphetamine and/or other horrifying drugs at the hackerspace, andpeople threatening to kill themselves or others, I don\'t break my text up into paragraphs. In the future, I will be totally grateful for what Ihave, but I\'m not directing that comment towardany one person or group in particular, I\'m just keeping everyone posted just in case she does get back tome and I aspire, and actuallyenjoy/feel energized when I am not always on my offer and call me, and experiencing the most UNEXCELLENT hangover withsomebody grinding a piece of wood in the DJ booth stop deleting me from 85, jerkDo you think if I wenton the 85 page as well. Lolz. Why is everyone still talking about the mediation process Ihave agreed to have a negativeassociation/reputation given to their bodylanguage and facial expressions.The beauty of all of the screeching that\'s been going onlately, along with human relationsand psychology. However the point I\'m trying to cooperate with almost anyone andeveryone about what I say this like it\'s goingout of style, but \\"if I wanted to know how she wouldgo about teaching everyone the process of rearrangingHacker Alley. So. I\'m collaborating with a negative descriptionposted about them from somebody else who wasn\'t me, and let\'s moveforward. THANK YOU and Smiley face. :-)Very Sincerely,Justin Patrick Doerr I propose we create a [Supplies We Need] tag. You are at fault for our behavioral problems with one another. It\'s not necessary to fight and get angry and try to make these individuals to have with RAYC explaining what we\'vedone as community'
Events and Classes
You don't need to be a member to take or give a class or workshop at Noisebridge. All are welcome! Please see our events hosting page for more details.
Not all events make it onto this calendar. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff. DO pay attention, as some events just arise organically from the bottom up!
Want to host your event at Noisebridge? We like seeing classes and talks on interesting things pertaining to various subjects of hacking. Most of all, we like seeing familiar faces. Please participate in the space and our weekly Tuesday meetings to see if we're the right audience for what you want to share before announcing a new event. Additionally, please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.
Upcoming Events edit
Basic Income Wikipedia Jam,
This will be a small gathering of folks working together to clean up the Wikipedia page for "basic income," which is a total mess right now and the first resource many people new to the idea will encounter. There are neutrality issues, citations missing, key events unmentioned, overly verbose writing, confusing organization: on and on and on. If you're into the idea of basic income, come lend a hand. We'll have snacks! Wednesday, July 27, 18:30:
Post-quantum Crypto Talk by Peter Schwabe,
In 2012, Mark Ketchen, researcher at IBM, stated about large quantum computers that they are "within reach" and estimated a timespan of 10 to 15 years until such computers can be built. It is not clear if Ketchen is right with this estimate, it is not even clear if a large quantum computer will ever be built. However, what is clear is that such a computer will be able to break all asymmetric cryptography in wide use today. More specifically, it will break in polynomial time systems that are based on factoring (like RSA) and systems based on the discrete logarithm (like DSA, and Diffie-Hellman key exchange), including their elliptic-curve variants. There are asymmetric cryptographic systems that, as far as we know, are not broken by quantum computers, so called "post-quantum cryptography". It is obvious that once large quantum computers exist, the world will need to switch to such post-quantum schemes. However, users who are concerned about long-term security, have to switch to post-quantum schemes for confidentiality already now: an attacker who records and stores key exchanges today can go back in a decade or two and use a quantum computer to attack them. In my talk I will give a brief overview of post-quantum crypto and then highlight what we can, and should, already do today to provide long-term security in cryptographic systems. In particular, I will present the "NewHope" key exchange, which is currently used in an experiment by Google and is one of the candidates to be considered for post-quantum key exchange in Tor.

Noisebridge is up! We began building Noisebridge in February 2007. Since December 2007 we've had regular Tuesday meetings, and rented our first physical space as of October 1st 2008. We quickly outgrew our first space and have been at our much larger 5,200 square-foot second location since October 1st 2009. We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization as of July 2009, retroactive to October 2008.
