Rather than try to change everyone else, it would be easier if Isky
moved his computer out of the classroom, or just moved it home instead
of using Noisebridge as his personal long-term storage for his
larger-than-a-member-shelf things.

Isky was asked by multiple people to move his computer somewhere else,
and he just blows them off. Isky gets asked by multiple people to
actually work on projects instead of just using the space as his
living room, and he just blows them off. I don't think the problem is
people not being assertive enough with him.

Isky is going to continue to do whatever he wants. Sometimes that fits
well with others, sometimes it doesn't. But that doesn't influence
Isky's behavior.
