Just thought I would point this out, since it came up earlier in the dues
thread. But, Marc's point(a very good marketing point about 24/7 access),
has as a big security exception, we didn't really talk about, probably
mostly because of time.
Basically, it's easy for us to think "hey, we should let this person have
access, because they seem cool, and we want to remain open," but even I get
sketched out at night sometimes, and there are real safety issues at work
here, and we should discuss them in relation to cost/benefits for the
space. It's also entirely possible that we trust someone, and they just do
something bad anyway. We don't really spend a lot of time thinking about
this, but this is something we haven't had to really deal with yet, because
we've had really shitty access up until now.
I don't know if my survey asked this question properly, but I was trying to
see if 24/7 access was worth more to people as a value, but I think for
some people it could be a safety draw-back, and at least in 1 case this is
true. I also am not sure it's really something we should be promoting, if
we do decide on it being okay for members to do.
If anyone wants to post about how they feel about this(I think it really is
about feelings in this case, because it's about promoting membership and
establishing wants/needs), then please feel free to reply here.
during yesterday's meting we discussed doing film screenings on fridays.
how would people feel about april 19th being the first day?
i've started a wiki entry where you can add suggestions for movies:
Hello all, last night at the general meeting Marc and I brought up the use of a small fridge at Sudo for use as a reagents storage fridge (bio fridge). 15 folks consented to the use of the fridge to store reagents associated with the propagation of Gonorrhea. THERE WILL BE NO GONORRHEA in the fridge, just the agar plates and broth we need to culture the organism at a later date in our community lab. I just wanted to see if there were any e-objections. If not, I will Devon and start storing reagents in the fridge.

Ive been making soups in the crockpot and can continue doing the same. I left miso and greens in the fridge, another stop at Koreana Plaza for rice noodles, oyster mushrooms, green onion, and tofu should do. Feel free to grab other things for a soup too. The trick is to heat up the crockpot with a bit of water or soup base, then use the water boiler above the sink for the boiling. Basically a simple hotspot, nothing needs more than a 10 minutes of hot water to cook.

Thanks so much for all your work Ray!
If anybody else would like to collaborate on food tonight, I'd love to
help! I can contribute time, car, buying ingredients, chopping skills,
and following directions, in exchange for your contribution of
leadership. :) :) :)
