I am pretty sure Museumsplatz 1 is a valid forwarding address for
Noisebridge.  The phone number and email addresses are valid.  So I
don't see a problem with the registration as it currently stands.  It
certainly doesn't point to our primary place of "business", but that's
quite common in domain registrations; as long as the address is valid
and a current forwarding address, that should suffice.

I'd definitely be against transfering the domain to an amorphous
"corporation" registration without a clearly responsible individual.
