I wanted to reach out for some feedback. Seeking folks who would want to
facilitate or participate in a men's group.
I've previously participated in small groups like this and found them
beneficial for various reasons. I would like to see if folks have had
similar or different experiences.
The way I'm thinking about this would culminate in something like a regular
meeting for men in the sudo room community to discuss relevant issues
including those of identity, oppression, privilege, patriarchy, gender,
sexuality, stereotypes, safe space, and mutual support.
This may not be the best or even a viable path to approach these topics,
but I wanted to throw it out there to see if there is any interest.

Subject: [omni-building] internet cable and garbage
Hi All! I'm so excited to finally be moved into my space at the Omni. A
couple things have come up for me and I'm not sure if this is the right
place to reach out, if not can you point me in the appropriate direction?
1. There is a blue ethernet cable that comes in the wall between my shop
and the hallway and goes out the wall again a few feet away only to come
back in the doorway and then plug into the phone line (I think). I've been
asking for someone (from Sudo?) to reroute it so that it just comes in and
goes right to the plug instead of the wrapping around. I'm concerned that
it will be damaged by the door closing on it repeatedly. Who can help?
2. I know this may be more involved but I'm wondering if the placement of
the trash cans can/will be discussed soon? It's going to be a major drag to
work all day in that stink. I've heard the plan is to take them out of the
hallway. Is that true?
Thanks and love!

I'd like to propose a meeting of the new board of directors at Sudo
Room. We need to have a meeting in order to finalize our board
nominations and approve various steps in moving forward with becoming a
federal non profit.
If you are or you believe you are a member of the board please fill out
this poll to find a time to meet.
If you have a list of current board members, please share it asap!
All the best ever, April
Hei, sudo room.
I want to avoid as much conflict as possible here on discuss@ so I'll state up
front that I would really rather folks talk to me in person or off list in
response to this.
I had every intention of coming to Sudo last night as I infrequently do to see
whats up and hack on things and spend more time in the space. My knee
disagreed to I went home instead.
Had I made it I would've certainly blocked RAYC's membership.
I plan on showing up at Sudo Room next week to have a legitimate block in
person since phoning it in as I'm doing in this e-mail is bullshit and we all
know that. I would appreciate it a bunch if others were around to hear me
elaborate about my principled objection and give feedback if it has any
standing. I also don't think its all that excellent of an idea to try and
discuss this on a wednesday night when folks want to just get together and be
positive, so I'll certainly be making more of an effort to be at the space
before then for discussion.
Again, I'm not going to respond to this on the list but feel free to poke me
off-list or AFK :)

Thanks for writing, Karissa! That sounds great and I'd love to help.
What timeframe were you thinking? If we set a date & time now, maybe
we can start organizing people around that. I'm down to give tours and
teach an intro to 3D printing. What are other sudoers down for?
I'm also including the "Omni Kids" email list. I'm not sure, but
there's a small chance that we have to wait until our legal situation
is clearer since we haven't yet passed a fire inspection and we don't
have an ADA bathroom. Hopefully someone on this mailing list knows for
sure what we're able to commit to right now!
Hope to keep in touch :)
i got a really fancy motor controller and a bunch of really fancy motors
with encoders built-in, and it all works together.. and I think we should
consider making another robot. Here is the controller:
huge operation manual:
basically the brain can control six motors, which i have, with very
precise motion control and tracking, for example for the joints of a giant
The motors I have are a couple of sizes, but I think we should go big and
use the 500W (2/3 horsepower) motors, so the thing can be expected to cart
its own batteries around and be autonomous.
never mind, this is a dumb idea. but i do have the motors and controller,
and i may be able to get more. I guess we could build a 4x8 foot laser
cutter or something mundane like that.
Is there still weekly movie night? What does one have to do to book the
basement to screen a film?
I'd like to screen the Battle of Algiers with a friend of mine (she's a
local prof of film studies) soon down there.
Anyone interested in that?
