[Noisebridge-discuss] Last night at Noisebridge was awesome!

Hi Mitch,

Last night or earlier today I stumbled across the Wikipedia article about 
Noisebridge. I wanted to know what a noise bridge was and the wiki was 
over the Wikipedia article on the space and then the radio equipment for 
finding shorts in an antennae under that.

There is a different perspective than one can get from the various 
discussion lists or even the wiki.

I did not know that you invented the TV-B-Gone and this instills a whole 
new level of respect for yourself and the space and hacker spaces in 

I personally love drama and trolling and many things that taint an 
othewise perfect harmony of carbon based organisms simply going about 
their lives (possibly completely oblivious; subjective) but that is not 
why I go to Noisebridge. Sometimes reading something formatted for 
Wikipedia is a damn effective way to reorient oneself when the human 
condition starts to color something away from its intended purpose.

I suggest people check it out. It's a good read. It can remove what is not 
really needed to state an idea succinctly, something I do not claim to be 
able to do, assiduously or otherwise.

Install bsd on all the things.

> Last night at Noisebridge was awesome! More than 30 people showed up for Circuit Hacking Monday.  It was so wonderful to see an entire roomful of people happily soldering away.  When I left at 3am there will still people working on way cool hardware projects. At the same time, the game developer group was meeting and discussing and coding. At the same time there was a class in the back classroom of I-don't-know-how-many people learning how to make their own websites. At the same time there were people making and serving lots of really good food (including vegan food that I could digest). And at the same time there were lots and lots of people working on projects, either by themselves, or in small groups. And everyone was helping one another, and learning from each other, and sharing, and having a really wonderful night. This is *exactly* what hackerspaces are about.  And this is why I love hackerspaces.  :) Cheers,Mitch.
