Actually, a neat idea would be instead of a wired buzzer buzzing into the
space, a call gets placed to a hunt group consisting of people's phones who
are willing to act as gatekeepers.  It needn't be the responsibility of the
people physically in the space to make this judgement; we've been over a
long list of reasons why people in the space are mostly prone to just
letting people in without asking...

I wonder if we could hook up the door buzzer to #noisebridge...
