New Hack City imploded directly from heavy drug use by its members.

Thank you for reminding me that Jake is implicated in an international
scandal.  I had almost forgotten.

Noisebridge is doing great, thanks for asking.

This is my snarky way of asking you why you're framing an almost
reasonable screed about how Noisebridge should dream big and buy a
building and become landed gentry, with ancient hackerspace drama,
Jacob, and unproven FBI informant allegations.

If you're truly interested in helping NB buy a more permanent home, I
suggest you ask around on the IRC channel, or show up in the space and
get access to the Slack (I dunno why we're using Slack but that's the
way it is).

There's a working group on the Slack working on funding big dreams.
I'm sure they'd welcome your input.
