  • people were talking about sudoroom in bloomington, indiana.
  • why? commons are important. now that i work from home i want to put energy into a place that's trying to do the right thing.
  • what hack? hardware stuff. also being part of a big multi-networked organized troupe of people.
  • what share? programming (js, python, sql, java)
  • 10.1 participate with a smile and a fist
  • 10.2 through resistance of debt and capitalism as an extension-of-debt
  • 10.3 respect of an insight of technology
  • values? common space, nonhierarchical, supposed to be safe, everything's open seemingly, anyone can participate. focused on doing things.
  • history? visited 2141. it's taken a lot of work to get to this place. there were some rough times. started out trying to not be like noisebridge or something
  • jenny: no that was AMT. although...
  • solidarity? seems great. very inclusive. lovely. i like how people are calling out other people for wanting to call the cops. that's cool.
  • safer space policy? been lurking for 6 months. pretty familiar with what's going on. hard to create a safe space but people are trying. encapsulating nonhierarchical values, people in the space have to be hte stewards and prevent things form happening.
