the answer to your very valid question is that at least with the video at 
the door, people can make an informed decision whether to let someone in 
or not.  If the person looking at the monitor decides that it's a fine 
time to invite a young oogle with his backpack & dog into the space, they 
can decide to buzz them in.

if the person in the space doesn't think it's a good time, because there 
were recently problems with that sort of thing, they have the option of 
deciding not to buzz the person in.

ants, being very social creatures, have a great method for deciding what 
food to bring home.  When an ant finds a food they like, they bring it 
home (in their stomach) and leave a trail of tiny deposits of the food 
leading back to where they found it.

When an ant is leaving the nest in search of food, they can sample the 
various trails leading away from the nest and use their own judgement as 
to which trails to follow, or which to ignore.

We at noisebridge have the option to do the same;  make our own decisions 
about who we let in, based on our own judgement and knowledge.

By the way, please remember that the alternative to the video monitor is 
having ZERO visual information about who is buzzing the door.

In the history of Noisebridge how many people have been refused entry?
My guess is maybe 2.
What about video at the door is going to convince anyone upstairs to
refuse entry to a young oogle with his backpack & dog in tow?
