I agree with all of what Romy just said. I also really want to talk to the parkway theater people. I think a lot of their suggestions might resemble things many people have suggested, such as those that Romy just said, ybit I think it's been hard to put these ideas into practice. My hope is that if we had people who appear to be successfully running a socially conscious art house/creativity hub/community meeting place say these things, their credibility and insights might furnish the activation energy and direction to actually do these things.

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 too hard.

- 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 in $10 as donations.

For me personally, I love SudoRoom and the Omni but I simply don't have time to do stuff that isn't creative. That includes anything involving teaching, spending my Friday nights cleaning other people'se waste, etc, attending omni committees on women and diversity.
