I said "your 'community' space," but honestly, I still want this to be my
space, too. I hardly ever make a fuss about any of this stuff because it's
all so futile, you know? but in this case, I really want to make my point
clear: I think we should rescind our action against Rannette. I think
she's been treated unfairly. Even if she is "aggressive" towards you or
your compatriots, I don't think we need white dudes policing our space of
black women's bodies. Matt, you claim to have acted in another's interest
and you offer an injured third party -- let them speak for themselves,
because I don't think it's your place right now. If there was a violent
incident that threatened our space, let's hear it from a witness or an
involved party. "Something Happened" is not good enough. Otherwise "but
above all the Omni
Commons must maintain a safe, welcoming environment" seems to fly directly
in the face of the lived experience of too many black people.
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.
Here's some images of the Seiko SMI 3200 Scanning Electron Microscope that
is in need of a new home:
Note that this is NOT a small system! It's not huge as SEM's go, but
definitely not desktop - more like "small room sized". And it would
obviously need some dedicated person to keep it in good running condition.
It is however almost brand new, and currently *running*, at <5nm resolution!
Beam Services Inc is down in Pleasanton, so I guess interested parties
could potentially go and have a look at the system. This kind of equipment
would be a significant commitment and investment in time and effort on our
part, so let's coordinate on this shall we?

Hi, I've been having fun at SudoRoom lately. I have wanted to *3D Print my
MRI of my ankle!*
I'm trying to overcome some hurdles >
-- I'm fundamentally a software and 2D digital person normally, it's hard
for me to get into 3D modelling
-- I'm used to keyboards, not wrenches and touching things which is why I
go to hardware hack night
I want to get beyond the stages of just looking at stuff on the 3D Printer.
Anyone else up to it? I'm wondering if I should come in more than once a
*Financial Straits! :* We have $1031 in the bank. Our minimum expenses are
~$2400 per month and as of July 2015 we are making $1820 per month through
stripe and gratipay. That means we have 1.78 months until we run out of
cash. Donate now! <https://sudoroom.org/donate/>
my to do: make a comic about this. there will be humans
i don't think it's very clear to outsiders how important the gittip was to
us, and all the internas and how hard we are working on sudohumans.
- *mental state:* I was honestly extremely fatigued, as I have been
skipping a few hours of sleep in the past few weeks. Each hour shaved off
my sleeping schedule seemed like a tiny thing
I was really tired, so I was unable to socialize much with everyone.
Despite that it was cool just being around other people who were learning
and hacking. I was actually trying to get other work done too, and I don't
But being around the community at SudoRoom and knowing that *Oakland is
I chatted with people, continue to be unable to get some components of
sudo-humans installed since I have a mac. (it's the canvas installation and
node gyp rebuild that's hitting me)
I'll try to get back to that later and help out.
online learning. I've worked with node.js before, and it's a little hard
little practice I'm able to work it.
I've started using node.js for simple scripting jobs. I mostly work as an
iPhone programmer but it's nice to be able to do scripts in python and
node.js to do busy work.
I went over this tutorial, so this is the rough equivalent to a ruby on
it's nice having had the web background in ruby on rails through the rails
bridge outreach program. they're the people who first got me using git and
github and heroic several years ago before I decided to focus and learn
programming. I'm not a rails person but it's something I'd like to get
under my belt.
I don't claim to know everything but i was able to get a rudimentary mongo
db down with the tutorial's help
I learned how to push node.js out to heroku. When I first met substack and
Sudoroom i was at a hackathon and working on a node.js learning app for
node.js fun while throwing in a lot of art.
at that time I don't think heroku supported node.js so we were using
nodejitsu. but now it does, which i learned
so it doesn't look like much but i got to understand the inner workings of
and the various frameworks. I'm not saying that it's healthy to dive into
the frameworks first without knowing the language fundamentals (or
relearning them after you've forgotten them) but I'm also actively
on the free access to the treehouse learning site that i get through my
publicly funded san francisco library card.
i wasn't able to understand hooking up the app to the free mongodb database
on heroku. that probably isn't hard but id din't want to spend the rest of
the night looking around. it was nice and quick.
i'm trying to focus but it's hard, so now i feel i've gotten past my very
superficial reviews of node.js
now I'm around a lot of really talented people who do a lot of work in
node.js so I can ask around, and I'm capable enough now (I hope) to do a
lot of self-learning and not have to be dependent on too much coursework or
even a book.
one of the hardest things to deal with is how quickly the languages and
i'm primarily a mobile phone developers who's self taught but i'd like to
do more web stuff and back end work, since I enjoy the speed that comes
with web development. it takes a little longer to do UI on the mobile
phone, and although UI is important it's a different nature and not as
vital on a website. (someone will probably argue with me)
so although this looks pathetic: it was nice
that are useful for different things <3
The cyber wizard institute starts tomorrow
Would a student a day be interested in blogging what they are learning ? It doesn't have to be long but it would highlight what's going on at Sudoroom in a positive way
