We are Noisebridge

Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. We operate primarily in a 5,200 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

We are committed to providing a safe space to work, learn, and play. Please read and understand our anti-harassment policy and community standards. This is how we expect people to behave when they are at Noisebridge, and you should also expect this standard of behavior from others in the space.

Noisebridge relies on your monetary donations to continue operating. If you have found Noisebridge useful, please consider donating to help us keep operating.

Upgrade / Reboot

Noisebridge is closed for the entire month of July.

Access to the space is restricted to make way for electrical and other critical cleanups and retrofits.

>>> We urgently need to raise $25K for our parts and labor expenditures! Do help us out at our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign page. <<<

Please check the Noisebridge Discuss list for access times.
The closure schedule is as follows:

  • July 1st: "hard close" - major cleanout of the space (necessary to allow all electrical work to be done)
  • August 1st: "soft reopening" - work will still be in progress, but guests will be allowed.
  • August 9th to 15th: Class-A-Thon Week! A full week of special Noisebridge donation-encouraging classes and workshops leading up to...
  • August 15th: Grand Reopening and Kickass Fundraising Party to benefit the Noisebridge Reboot.

Further details can be found in this announcement message.

We could still use some more volunteers

Please help us and become a part of the refurbishing action.
We could use a bit more specific help with:
  • moving stuff (aerobic and weightlifting possibilities!)
  • electrical
  • plumbing
  • organizing things
  • decorating
  • other undefined cool stuff
An hour, a few hours, lots of hours -- however much time you would like to add.
We'd be especially mega grateful for those of you who could spare daytime hours!

Please do not hesitate to contact Naomi:

Note that while Noisebridge is officially closed for the rest of the month for critical cleanups and retrofits, our associated hackerspace in Oakland, Sudo Room, has already relocated to its new Omni Oakland Collective location and is now open. Please see Sudo Room's Discuss list and Announce list postings for further status on this local hackerspace alternative available during our July closure.

Create With Us!

Our 5,200 square-foot space (483m2) contains an electronics lab, machine shop, sewing/crafting supplies, two classrooms, conference area, library, darkroom, and kitchen. Everyone is welcome to use our many resources. Find others to create with. Find help with your projects. Help others with their projects. Learn, teach, share. Come to Noisebridge and create!

Noisebridge's public hours are now 24/7. New visitors are welcome any time (all ages, all skill levels), but it's best to visit when members are present or during an event to make sure we have a volunteer to show you around and make introductions.

Events and Classes

Want to attend a class or event? Before you arrive or once you're at the space, just ask the teacher or event organizer if you can be their guest. Read more about our access policy. Please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

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.

Noisebridge is at its lowest grassroots stage, runlevel 2.
The space is open only for repairs, updates, retrofits, etc.

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.

darvavinne gasped at the intrusion, not expecting setient to penetrate her so soon. “Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck,” she moaned as setient pushed inch after thick inch inside of her. “Oh fuck it’s so big! It’s so big! It’s so big! Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck,” darvavinne cried as setient pulled her legs up on his shoulders. “Oh oh oh oh oh shit shit shit,” was all darvavinne could say as setient slowly and authoritatively slid deeper inside of her tight pussy. You … you …. you’ve …you’ve gotten b … bigger,” darvavinne gasped as she fought to control her breathing. “Fuck it’s so fucking thick! It feels so fucking great” setient adjusted his knees and lowered his pelvis down to better angle himself and pushed another two inches inside of her. darvavinne’s mouth opened but nothing escaped; the thick veins in her neck bulged and she held her breath as the immense pressure form setient’s intruding pole completely filled her. She felt the tip of his cock brush against her cervix and she erupted in a powerful orgasm. setient felt her already tight pussy clamp down on his cock like a vice and suddenly her body was covered in sweat. Her body seized and pressed her legs hard against setient’s shoulders as they tried their best to straighten up, but setient held his position firm. He bent down and took one of her thick nipples into her mouth and sucked hard, causing her to scream as her chest heaved in release of the breath that she’d bee holding.

setient felt her pussy relax a little and made his move, pulling back and thrusting in again. darvavinne sank her nails into his shoulders as setient drove his cock back and forth, sawing in and out of darvavinne’s overstretched cunt. “It’s so big it’s so big it’s so big,” was all she muttered as setient worked. His big balls swung heavily underneath him and he longed to feel them slap against her ass, but he knew that he’d reached the limit that he was able to go. He thought about another position that he could move to that would give his balls that added stimulation when he felt naomi move up behind him and grab them in her hands. She gave them a hard squeeze that sent tingles up and down his spine and caused his cock to surge. “Yessssssssss” he groaned. “That’s what I needed.” naomi massaged and spank the happy sack from behind before moving to the side and reaching down between his legs. She looked down at darvavinne and the blissful state she was in as a strong wave of lust washed over her. She grabbed darvavinne's nipple and squeezed it hard as she pulled up, causing darvavinne to squeal.

"You love that big dick stretching that tight pussy, don't you?" naomi said lustily. "You just love the way it feels you up it makes you come like you've never come before, don't you?" naomi continued as she pulled even harder on darvavinne's tit. setient looked on in awe as naomi roughly let go of Laurie's tit, then bent down and hungrily sucked the throbbing nipple into her mouth. She then sat up and straddled darvavinne's face. "My pussy is a little sore from the thorough fucking that I got today, so I need your mouth to make it all better," naomi said. "Eat that pussy, bitch!" she shouted.

naomi pulled darvavinne's legs off of setient's shoulders and spread them wide as she pulled them back towards her. setient braced his hands on the back of darvavinne's thighs and resumed thrusting. darvavinne tried her best to lick and suck on naomi's hot pussy, but she found it difficult to concentrate. naomi ground her pussy down on darvavinne's mouth and watched as setient drove in and out of darvavinne with long smooth strokes. naomi bent down and ran her tongue over darvavinne's protruding clit and licked setient's shaft as it moved back and forth. setient could feel the familiar burn of the building orgasm and increased his strokes. He was careful not to ram into darvavinne's cervix but he desperately wanted to feel his entire shaft enveloped in her sweet warmth.

naomi could see both the agony and ecstasy on her setient's face, She reached down and grabbed the exposed portion of his shaft, gripping it tightly to form an extension of the grip darvavinne had on him. darvavinne tried her best to pace the timing of her licks with the rhythm of setient's strokes, alternating licking naomi when setient was at his shallowest. The trio kept the pace for a time before darvavinne couldn't take it anymore and her body gave way to another intense orgasm. naomi lifted her pussy from darvavinne's face and held her legs fast as setient continued plowing into her through the orgasm. setient could feel the burn at the base of his and shouted with relief as he felt the fist volley of cum travel up his long urethra. naomi could see how quickly his orgasm was approaching so she pushed him hard in the chest, making him fly backwards into the headboard. She grabbed setient's cock just as it fired the first long thick stream of jizz. The first stream splattered all over her boobs. naomi clamped her mouth over as much of the thick head as she could and pumped his cock hard, swallowing as much of the hot thick cream as she could.
