My initial thoughts are:
- A Study hall when UC Berkeley is in session, proceeds from this could be used to create
a clean and beautiful living space. The coffeehouses are overflowing, their libraries are
jam packed (I couldn't get into the East Asian library to check anything out and relax
since it's just full of study rats).
I'm not sure how this would be managed, it's a lot of work. I don't think
it's possible to get volunteers to keep the space clean enough though, it's just
- There are a number of groups who have checked out the Omni but were scared off by the
consensus process, meetings and potential drama. Is there a way to get a residence lite
with guarantees that nobody has to sit in on meetings? There are some people who love
doing policy, so they should be able to do it, but it scares a lot of people away.
- SudoRoom - I would pay $30 extra a month if $20 of that would be pooled to hire a
professional cleaner every month and do a deep clean and handle all the ewaste
We could have member run workshops on stuff like Blender, and then people who attend throw

Friday nights cleaning other people'se waste, etc, attending omni committees on women
