professional contacts, which occasionally does happen. As somebody with
a business degree, I would have also liked to have said that I

As the only hackerspace in "The City", I would have though initially
that Noisebridge could be a flagship positive example for other
hackerspaces, the "Grand Lodge" of Silicon Valley / Northern California
hackerspaces, if you will. But that's never going to happen.
