To: "Jeffrey Carl Faden" 
I don't feel comfortable at all if indeed i was sleeping which is a
term that implies 7-10 hours of sleep consisting of 2 to 3 biorhythm
at most i nap for 3 hours which is 1 cycle and use the designated
space for sleep hacking set up by council member JC for that exact
I have double and triple checked with Council members to find that
their is no policy against sleeping at Noisebridge. I at most have
done this every other day, and have woken up people snoring who are
disturbing people and waking up people who are regulars in the space
sleeping is places other than the hacker stacker and advising them to
use it and that i will be happy to wake them in 3 hours.

I have done sleep hacking since the age of 20 and personally i think
that a black and white system has created a divide in the community
that forces people to fight human nature and hide to sleep. It should
be taken into account that a two degree drop in temperate in a place
which is not heated like noisebridge with intensified cooling due to
stagnation of blood with excessive static posture causes a chemical to
be release in the brain that makes people fall asleep instantly. 

The hybrid hacker stacker in the space is a good buffer for people who
are here hacking on stuff long hours. Also i have seen no 7-10 hour
sleepers take interest in it, the only people who have use it for a
maximum for three and then their timer goes off or the person they
asked to wake them from their nap does so. Once in a while people will
dose off in their chair with their laptop still on and then wake up
after 10 minuts, its just the reality of the space.

The people who use the hacker stacker self police each other since
their is only one. The scarcity is a dynamic which promotes
accountability and the ones who sleep outside the hacker stacker loose
face and are asked to stop because then the hacker stacker might be
banned thus giving incentive to stop resident sleepers.
In a black and while policy the only incentive is to lie or hide which
creates divide in the community and causes friction. It also eats up
precious time of council members like Al and Monad who come in the
morning and sacrifice their time to patrol the space.
The hybrid is more efficient and effective as a model to keep the
peace at Noisebridge without extremes happening like with what
happened to Robert where he chose to do something as extreme as
sleeping on top of the elevator because their were no options he could
find and he was motivated by fear of being banned. 

I believe with a hybrid model we would not have to had the entire
drama and banning of Robert who was a valuable member of the community
and did much excellent things to help Noisebridge. I am not saying its
right or wrong but its a bridge toward a win win dynamic where people
take responsibility and accountability, and for those who don't, they
become surrounded by people who are being excellent and are. 

Sleep hacking is 3 hours max under the scientific definition which is
one biorhythm sleep cycle and it is the field i have been in for a
long time and taught professionally at a time also.
Dosing off is usually a max of 24 min before deep sleep kicks in and
one enters deep theta.
Sleeping is 7-10 hours which is 3 biorhythm sleep cycles. 
Resident sleepers and Sleepers don't use the hacker stacker because
they don't want to be woken up hence one is a hybrid solution and one
is the problem Noisebridge has been try to eliminate for a long time
as far as my understanding goes from the days of occupy. But i don't
go that far back i am pretty new here compared to many who use the
analysis and contrast of that past to design future projections of
Noisebridge. I believe the dynamics are different, and being someone
who has seen more than anyone of what goes on here because i only
sleep 3 hours as a normal mode of life consistently, i can tell you
that the people who use the hacker stacker are all as far as i have
seen people who are excellent in the space and of great value to the
space and the community.

I respect your view, and i know what i am proposing may sound
unreasonable but a black and while model is a win/lose model that that
model despite the approach has never worked and it never will because
it promoted the motivation of the individual to fight human nature and
thats a lot to ask for even from the most excellent members of the

p.s. i will not name the council members who have fallen asleep in the
space out of respect, i will say that i have no pity for one of them
who is currently up for ban, and if the community actually cares about
this space they will make sure he does not enter it again, i am
already posted my condensed version of meeting notes based on varied
evidence from community people which include for members and council

p.s.2 one last thing, i have come to realize that some of the most
respected people in noisebridge are not council members or even
members and this word council presupposes a level of excellence that
doesn't exist and was not a filter which was necessary to become a
council member. Please take that into account, along with the obvious
fact that this is not World of Warcraft even though the tuesday
meetings may resemble wars between the Alliance and the Hoard.

 I would like some sense of the community to know if people think it
is okay for me to note who is sleeping at 2169.   If most of the
people think that taking notes of who lives at NB and leaves the mess
of food is a privacy violation inconsistent with the Noisebridge
vision -  then Noisebridge isn't the place for me. 
 The conflict resolution process is important and valuable.

 Regardless, the same is true here.

 I'll explain myself at the meeting.  If you don't come, I'll take
