[Noisebridge-discuss] The Sudo Room community is disheartened by the abrupt change...

This is the first I've heard of this.

I emailed Al Sweigart and Danny O'Brien several weeks ago when I was asked (in an email by Danny O'Brien) if I was OK with a change away from consensus decision making at Nosiebridge.  In my reply email I expressed that this was not OK with me, and requested that Al please not bring this up as an item for consensus, as changing away from consensus would change Noisebridge such that I would no longer want to be a member.

As I now travel half of the year (and have for quite some time), I guess I haven't been there enough to see things devolve to a point where this could happen, against the wishes of a member in good standing.  

If this is the direction that Noisebridge wants to take, I wish everyone there well.
