So here's a mystery for all you techno-sleuths and scavenger hunt fans: I
just discovered a wall-mounted, old school rotary phone, in a hidden
location in the Omni trash room!
I'm not going to reveal the exact location so as not to deprive you of the
joy of discovering it yourself.
* Does the phone still work?
* What is it connected to? Hotline to the FBI for mob informers?
* What might have been the history of that phone? Did the current trash
room have a different use that might explain the need for a phone there?
* Is there a link to the doorless room in the basement, or the zombie
apocalypse emergency supply closet?
Sooo many questions...
I asked this question some weeks ago, posting again here; is there doc we
can see SudoRoom finances in general (how much $ in memberships/ donations,
Last time I checked humans.sudoroom.org it seems only members have access
to finances. Is there anywhere else a non-member could check that info? I
think it'd be interesting to have for transparency's sake.
Either way, as I mentioned in my last msg, I'd like to apply for a
membership, so let me know how to do that.
it seems that sudo-access is set to accept emails from non-members and is
forwarding spam which is bad.
Also I need to add someone to the list and i don't see how to do that.

tonight we cut the locks off of the lockers, where the combinations had been
there are now about six lockers available on the East side of sudoroom, for
members. We have combination locks available too! Please let me know if you
want a lock.
If you take a locker please consider increasing your monthly donation, actually
just consider that anyway because we need more money 
Hi! I'm Steve, a local wingnut/author, and friend of Jake who claims
no knowledge of wordpress.
I'm hoping someone can help me with my WordPress site, bradytales.com.
As you can see, the basic list of blog posts is duplicated. I hope to
find someone very familiar with the wordpress system who can make this
go away. Any takers? Thanks!

You're getting this email either because 1) you're on the sudoroom discuss
email list, or 2) because I BCC'd you directly.
Tonight I'll be hosting Sudoroom for those who want to come hack on whatever in
person, or through telepresence (see the last link in this email)
ALSO NOW FEATURING: SoftWEAR hacking too: most Tuesday evenings the sewing area
at Omni Commons (in the basement) is also active so bring your fabric and
textile projects and technical repairs; we've got heavy duty and serger sewing
machines available. You’re also welcome to bring your own machine to have it
checked out and tuned up for tip-top operation or to just sew alongside others.
Remember that Omni Commons and Sudoroom policy is presently that EVERYONE MUST
WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES INSIDE THE BUILDING. (if you want to eat something
you should go outside)
in the past few weeks, we've had about 5-15 people over the course of the
evening, not including remote participants who logged in through telepresence
Jenny put it on the Omni calendar:
Here it is on the sudoroom page:
that says 7PM but I try to be there earlier.
if you get to the door (at the corner of 48th and shattuck) and you can't get
in, call me or someone else who's there to let you in! Email me if you don't
have my phone number. Actually a great way to get our attention is to join the
video chat link at the end of this email!
We don't always hear the doorbell and I don't answer it anyway!
You should get on this sudoroom discuss mailinglist! click here:
and you should donate monthly to sudoroom, monthly, by signing up here:
and if you want to make a one-time donation, you can go here:
if you can't make it in person: join the jitsi videochat with the room, and
chat with each other as well as a giant TV screen/speakerphone on the wall:
(don't worry if you're the only one in the "room", others will join eventually,
and if the camera is pointed at the floor, just yell until someone comes and
talks to you and then ask them to aim it back up into the room)
see you soon!
I almost missed this email because most of the messages received on it are
spam, but it looks like a production company is interested in using the
space as a location for an interview with former google engineer Blake
You can see my response below. I can’t see any reason why we wouldn’t be
able to accommodate this request. I also asked if they could check if Blake
wanted to hang around and chat with members. If they decide to go forward I
suggest that we request a voluntary donation in line with typical space
rental fees. Is anyone else interested in possibly meeting with Blake?

we filmed at the counterculture lab a few years ago with Patrik and Josiah
for German public broadcasting cultural TV 3sat (

Now we’re working on a documentary about the developments in AI. I’m
trying to organize an interview with Google engineer Blake Lemoine. He’s
the one who thinks Googles AI has become sentient. I’d like to do the
interview via Skype while I am in Germany and he is in the US. Cameramen
filming on both ends.
Is there a chance for this interview to happen in your sudo-house in
Oakland? It would just be two people: Blake and the camera operator.
The date is set for next Tuesday morning, the 2nd of August at 10:30 am and
won’t take longer than an hour.
Thank you for considering!
