Greetings Noisebridge!

We are pleased to announce the monthly "Five Minutes of Fame", scheduled for
this Thursday, February 18th, at 8pm at Noisebridge. Bring yourself, your
friends, your pet alien, and ping pong balls to throw at the speakers.

This month, 5MoF will be hosting a bone marrow drive with "Be the Match
Marrow Registry" (www.bethematch.org) to raise awareness and help save
lives. In addition, we'll have a swabbing station on-site running before,
during, and after the event. If you know anyone affected by this condition,
want to help, or just want to learn more, please drop by and offer your

One of our own members, David Molnar, is directly affected by this. His
sister has an aggressive form acute leukemia. She and many others like her
need a bone marrow transplant for a shot at survival, but have no family
members that match their marrow tissue type. By joining the registry, you
might just be the person to save the life of his sister or someone like her.

All speakers have been notified, and the current schedule is as follows*:

"We'll Always Have Paris" (aestetix)
"Open Primer and never be the same: OpenPrimer.org and forever live the
game" (Alex Peake)
"The Importance of Collective Autonomy" (Bedouin and Fey)

Dedication Ceremony

I want to extend thanks to all the speakers, but especially all the people
who have been showing up and make this event a success. Without all of you,
it would not be able to happen.

the same.
