I had some positive experiences at Noisebridge this week
- After clubbing I was let in as a guest. I had a long discussion on
solving potential burn out for members and associate members in the
community. I learned about the new night policy. I stood by the new
keyboard and learned about major and minor chords. It was really nice
knowing that I wasn't the only person who had suffered hackerspace burnout.
- During the noisebridge orchestra jam Sunday evening I came early with
my own hardware equipment which has been gathering dust in the back of my
closet for the past few months. I sat next to people who were putting
together the instruments I was happy to learn about audio electronics and
audio engineering and take baby steps towards my own arduino and music
hardware projects again.
- I got started contributing to the noisebridge iPhone app which has a
proposed ticketing system for helping repair things at Noisebridge. It was
nice learning about all the code on github
- I ran into a delegation of educators from Singapore who are interested
in introducing more creative curriculums to high school students. They were
very fascinated with the hardware and one of them, a physics teacher, set
about on a project helping the Noisebridge orchestra.
- I dropped in on the Front end web development class and explored
never found the time. It was really nice having someone hold my hand and
walk me through and get familiar with the rhythm of getting into the code.
- I ran into a French hackerspace couple who had brought bread and
cheese from Paris. We drank some wine and there were Noisebridge members
chatting with them about gentrification in San Francisco.
