A quick note to acknowledge Rayc for enthusiastically accepting a bunch
of stuff I brought in on Thursday (including two Apple TVs, random
packages of nails, screws, molly bolts, an electric drill that works but
is missing a chuck--I have drill bits but have to find them, etc.), and
to David B who accepted a bunch of books and some bowls (may you have
warm foods in your belles!). Also a request: if these things were not
found to be welcome and useful, please let me know. My intent was to
contribute, not to dump.
I just want to point out here, in case anyone hasn't figured it out yet,
that Al Sweigart is trolling us.
Our safe spaces policies and our methods of implementing them have been
working well. Just because someone like Al wants to theorize about a
super-intelligent hyper-evil entity that would take advantage of our
process doesn't mean that we actually have that problem.
Al, you are not part of our community, in the sense of participating in
the space in a positive and caring way. Please stop inserting yourself
into our discussions.
Torrie, for you to be responding to Al's trolling as if he respresents
sudoroom in any way is extremely unfortunate. I encourage you to research
his effects on noisebridge in the past.
fwding this to sudo and cdc as well

Subject: Proposed Safe Space Ban: Perry
To: "discuss(a)lists.omnicommons.org" <discuss(a)lists.omnicommons.org>, David
Perry, who as far as I know is not affiliated with any collective in the
space, was at the Omni until late last night. He was heavily inebriated and
reeked of alcohol.
In attempting to talk with me, he got incredibly touchy-feely and further
invaded my space, getting so close that I could feel his breath on my skin.
I informed him loudly that touch needs to be consensual in the space and
that he should ask me before touching me. I told him that the safe space
policy is next to the front door and that he should read it. I managed to
get away from him, but he followed me outside.
Ribre (sp?) was outside with her guitar and he sat down next to her,
invaded her space, and tried to strike up a seemingly very uncomfortable
conversation. She told him that whatever he was talking about was something
that he'd have to deal with on his own, not with her, and that she cannot
deal with drunk men, and that they make her unsafe. Instead of ceasing the
conversation, he got closer and tried to tell her that they needed to
He continued in this vein for a while longer, until I loudly informed him
that the conversation was not consensual and he needed to stop. He started
to argue with me, however RAYC was able to defuse Perry and lead him away
from the interaction.
I spoke to Kwe and Juul before they left, to make sure I had backup if I
needed to ask Perry to leave the building. Eventually, I was the only
member left in the building, so I asked RAYC to shut down the building for
me, and that I was only comfortable vouching for him and Nicholas. RAYC got
Perry to leave.
I spoke with David Keenan this morning, explaining the situation, and DK
said that he has spoken to Perry in the past about his behaviour,
specifically his behaviour when under the influence of alcohol. I will let
DK speak more to that.
Is anyone aware of a collective that Perry is involved with? In my
conversation with DK, he said that when he spoke to Perry he said he was
with FNB, but was probably lying, as he didn't even know where the kitchen
was. Regardless, I ask that Perry be banned from the Omni, pending
mediation, as his actions clearly violate our safe space policy and he
refused to take action to alter his behaviour.

For the record, Ryan, I think your tone is perfectly justified here.
Thank you for hosting us last night! The event went well despite the rain:)
Bad news is my cellphone (iphone4 with painting of woman case) and a small
digital camera all went missing. If you see either one, please let me know.

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
I was planning on taking this to Reed Brothers today to rekey so we could
have a safe place to store our important documents and petty cash.
However as of last night at least, it appears to have disappeared from the
ballroom. I have done a quick walk around the building and asked around but
it cannot be found.
We really need this and that dolly, too. If someone took it or repurposed
it, can you please let me/us know asap?
I just threw several dozen bottles and cans in the recycling bins. If
someone wants to pick them out and cash them in, feel free!
There's a big blue recycling bin in CCL that I originally bought because
the Fermentation Station said they wanted more bottles. But inevitably, I'm
the one who winds up having to empty and clean that bin every week anyway.
So - IT'S FREE SEASON ON EVERYTHING WITH A CA REFUND VALUE! If the
Fermentation station empties the bin in CCL, that's great. If someone else
wants to come empty it on a regular basis, that's just fine with me too.
Just don't leave a mess for us to deal with afterwards. Please put all
non-refund recyclables in the small recycling bins, and all non-recyclables
in the black trash bin.
I just saw these and thought they were pretty cool:
Google cardboard (https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/). Low tech
virtual reality glasses assembled by cardboard. They can be bought from
google or the designs can be printed out, assembled DIY.
All electrical appliances (toasters, microwave, hot water maker) in the
kitchen have been temporarily moved to Sudo Room, following the electrical
breaker powering the upstairs & la commune tripping with increasing
This circuit powering the kitchen used to be on breaker #8 of the subpanel
in Rise Above (west wall), now it is on #7 moved by Steve Bloom. Unfo it's
now tripping way more than it een used to before, and hi-amp appliances in
the kitchen such as toasters etc almost immediately trip the circuit. At
this point this is a hazardous condition and an electricians are being
called to try and resolve this.
Please do not put any of these appliances back into the kitchen circuit
until this electrical problem has been addressed. And contact me if anyone
has any questions. Thank you :)
