Noisebridge is generally open to the public, but it is a privately operated
space. There is a *very* strong norm against taking photographs without the
permission of all subjects, and that norm establishes a reasonable
expectation of privacy against photography in Noisebridge.

There's nothing wrong with photos per se, as long as everyone consents. If
you're taking photos in the space without asking permission, don't be
surprised if you are asked to stop, or to leave.
