1.What about the person who comes in, uses a locker, locks it and then 
moves out of town forgetting to clear out and open the locker?  Do we 
have a plan for that situation?
Who will take responsibility for tracking that?
2. We have had one or two very interesting people come thru Noisebridge, 
for example Mr. Salvador Dali Llama.  What would he have kept in a 
locked locker?  Would it have helped him maintain Noisebridge as his 
residence?  Or would he have kept something in there that could have 
threatened the entire existence of Noisebridge?

Once again, who volunteers to police this in perpetuity?

otoh, Giant robots sound like fun.
