Wishlist - Stuff sudoroom needs

Sudo Room is an open, non-hierarchical, collaborative community of humans, including tech developers, citizen scientists, activists, artists--and all combinations in between and beyond!--who are interested in and working towards social change. Our goal is to create the first inclusive, dedicated hackerspace in downtown Oakland, to share ideas and projects in citizen science, digital citizenship and literacy, environmental sustainability, community engagement, and self-government.

Sudo Room is committed to access, empowerment, transparency, and public/social good. Sudoers have a great diversity of interests and we emphasize respect and solidarity among ourselves and with others.

    • Freedom to Connect
    • Non-technical (humanities, social science, the environment/ environmental justice, arts, crafts, all the squishy stuff!) and technical knowledge (including transitions and bridges between the two) --
      • the useful arts & sciences?
      • information, data, knowledge, wisdom?
      • memes, genes, bits, and atoms?
      • Non-technical knowledge includes but is not limited to expertise in fields or disciplines that can be largely independent of technology. Also includes non-academic realms of knowledge.
    • Digital/Online Citizenship - Netizen Rights & Freedoms
    • Doing stuff to make our community openly accessible. do something more with digital and network technology
    • Environmental sustainability
    • Education and mentorship
    • Community engagement
    • Public access
  • To become a center for active hacking projects but also a destination where speakers on the areas listed above may be hosted, and where folks may go for skill sharing classes
