I don't think that coming to evening meetings and weekend events should be the ultimate metric of commitment to Sudo Room.
Not everyone can make it at those times because of work and family obligations.

Agreed, thanks for picking up on that and giving an opening to describing all the ways in which people regularly show their commitment to Sudo Room: There's also building infrastructure in the space, creating/making awesome things, giving tours, managing the landlord situation, managing the trash (thanks david k!), leading classes/workshops/meetups, CLEANING and BEAUTIFYING the space [the move to colorful late-night mood lighting the other week was especially clutch].

Sudo Room should not sacrifice its foundational values so as to be taken seriously by traditional power structures. This is part and parcel of being a vessel of social change. Noisebridge has an ad hoc and ever-changing do-ocracy of leaders, as does Sudo. The inscription of a Board merely makes static what is in actuality a dynamic aspect of the community, hence its role (in the vein of honesty and radical transparency) is as merely an on-paper minimum satisfactory requirement for bureaucratic processes. Come to any meeting of Noisebridge or Sudo and it will be readily apparent who's currently taking on leadership roles.
