Hi Matthew, thanks for suggesting to run this event at Noisebridge! I think
Maptime is a great group and I believe Noisebridge would be happy to host
such events. I'd recommend you check out our Hosting and Event wiki page
and potentially come to a Tuesday night meeting so you could introduce
yourself to the group and get some members to support you in running this
