Hi there!

The wiki has been updated with the results of fantastic work on
creating solder masks with the Laser cutter.  Please see his page on
Surface Mount Assembly for more information.  This goes through steps
to increase NB's capacity for bulk PCB production.  Other
Noisebridgers are working to get the Pick and Place up and running
once more.

James lead creating a New Audio Workstation in the back of the space
by Church. He secured a number of donations to make it happen, and
every Sunday for the next few months there is an Abelton class using
donated licences.  Check the event pages for details.
Jun 03 class meet-up:

Douglas and Sturgess is holding free casting workshops the first
Friday of every month.  The first is   Today, Jun 1, and is covering
"Introduction to the Materials of Molding and Casting" from 6p to 9p.
The classes are being held at Douglas and Sturgess San Francisco
location.  Right now there's no info on the website, but I found out
in-store and have a flyer.  I'll email them to see if they can update
their site.  It's "after-hours" which may be confusing.
730 Bryant st.

New bins!
New trash (black), recycling(blue) and new compost(green) bins were
purchased for the space.  This will make sorting waste easier.  A
great way to contribute is to pick stuff up you see hanging around and
placing it the the appropriate bin.

A generous person has donated a tile cutter for the Dirty Shop!

Volunteers are needed, to tend bar specifically.  Please get in touch

Fundraising, as always, continues.  Lady Red made a tremendous effort
to complete an application starting yesterday and finishing last night
to meet the deadline.  Grants are being sought, and NB is looking for
grant writers, copy editors, and assistance to find appropriate
funding.  Help if you can!  There's also been at update to the
donation projects page where donations can be earmarked for specific

This Saturday NB is hosting a social media tool hackathon at
Noisebridge, at maybe let's say 7pm. There will be pizza. We're going
to hack on stuff specifically for Noisebridge social media,
integrations with Slack, Facebook, YouTube, maybe Tumblr or whatever.
Basically the idea is to doocratize social media content.

John continues excellent work on NB's behalf, filling out tedious
forms, keeping finances in order, and somehow finding time to clean
the space.  Thanks John your hard work is appreciated.


I met the UPS delivery person at the door the other day.  He told me
that Bob Ross was a drill sergeant in the Air Force!
