Hey Chris,

Thanks for the very informative status report.  Recent drama
notwithstanding, I'm still game for vying for a piece of/all of the
darkroom, but appropriate timing will definitely be key.  I agree that
there's a good chance that book scanning and film developing could coexist
in there someday, as they do overlap thematically, to some extent.  I'm
also still amenable to the idea of snatching up some school lockers to be
clandestinely located inside the darkroom, where most people never venture
anyway.  All things to be discussed at future DAG and general Noisebridge
meetings.  Definitely keep us posted on whatever this Jo(h)n has to say
about things.  Let's see if we can't get him to subscribe here so he can
join in on the conversation himself.

My plan was to stash the cameras in there tomorrow since I won't be around
on Thursday.  I'm now having second thoughts...  Anyone able to meet me
tomorrow afternoon/evening at Noisebridge to make the handoff?  Or if not
Noisebridge, somewhere else?  Sunset?
