i'm not sure if this is Tom's sentence. If this sentence intended as a
mission statement, some pluses and minuses:
plus- the word "enable" here is key. Safety is essential, but we don't
say somebody sitting in a corner reading comic books is an appropriate
activity for noisebridge, simply because it's non-threatening and
non-interfering. Sitting in a corner reading comic books does not ENABLE
nb to be a place to work on and talk about technical projects.
minus- the statement seems inadequate because, if someone is working on
a technical project, that does not "enable" either-- it might even
disable someone else from working on something, if they are occupying a
limit resource (and thus preventing someone else from using that
minus- Social hacking seems missing.
