Hi Abby,
Welcome to San Francisco, and welcome to Noisebridge!  
Sorry about your credit card.  There are probably a bunch of people at Noisebridge who will be willing to trade BTC for USD.  I'll be there sometime later today, at about 5pm or 6pm.  If you don't find anyone to trade with before then, I'll be happy to trade with you when I arrive.
In the meantime, please make yourself at home at Noisebridge this afternoon.
I hope I get to meet you later this evening.

Hello everyone,
Sorry for my English is not good, it might be a little difficult to read ;)

My name is Abby, and I am from Taiwan, I came to US on study LGBT movement stuff for our organization in Taiwan , after visiting Denver, I came here yesterday late night.
(a little lone story about how I know NoiseBridge and why I got here)
That's the time when I got some trouble. My hotel told me my credit card doesn't work for them, so I have to almost all the cash on my hand to them. So I just got like few dollars in my pocket, along with my credit card (which did work on other places which take the card.)
I work as a software engineer and web developer in Taiwan, and I am also a believer of Bitcoin, so I thought about "Why not sell some Bitcoin in my Taiwanese bank account and get some cash?". I did a little research online, it turn out there are only one BTM (Bitcoin ATM) around downtown SF, which is located in the 20 Mission (co-working space), when I got there, someone from the 20 Mission told me the BTM is down. He also told me that if I try to get some help, I should come to NoiseBridge.
I am wondering if anyone knows about how can I sell some BTC to get cash in SF, or is there anyone I can exchange with?
By the way, I will just stay in NoiseBridge this afternoon, see if anyone can help me on this.
The space of NoiseBridge is so pretty, It's so nice to know here.
Wish you all have a great day.
