And that would be different from what noisebridge has had in the last 5yr
how? as it stands, many women do not feel safe at noisebridge because of
sexual assault and the past somewhat failure to deal with it in a manner
where women felt safe and listened to at nb. many valuable contributing
people have left nb because of its failure to address major infrastructure
problems. if having a more active board helps to stop sexual abuse and
makes the culture more welcoming to those who would positively contribute,
then i am 100% down with active management. i would like noisebridge to be
somewhere i can bring friends to interest them in hacking, bring my
childrens' school championship robotics team to inspire them to the next
victory, not a place where i am fearful to go on my own because there are
no protections or infrastructure to ensure basic safety.
