Doge needs more projects!

Older Projects

SudoRoom: A Love Story (Game)
  • SudoRoom: A Love Story a visual novel game about a person that is... you! who comes to SudoRoom and discovers all the neat things you can do. You eventually learn how to save the world too!
  • ArtMakingParty event we put on after the Oakland First Friday
  • Super Focus Club SudoRoom is a hackerspace, a place created for hacking. Lately it's gotten very tough for hackers to actually hack here -- we're getting pulled to do publicity for outside companies, social work, and more instead of actually hacking. Let's get back to the basics.

I didn't study engineering at all. But during the MicroController Hack Night Hol and others helped me to get my basic FSR (force sensitive resistor) working. Every time I pressed the sensor with my fingers, the LED lit up. This can lead to all sorts of interesting projects!
The first time I came to SudoRoom I was warmly welcomed. I build my own Arduino and lit up the LED for the first time! It was a special moment
Sudo Room Characters (that is an ohm, not a lululemon logo. will change it =) )


I like to build things. I prefer hacking and learning by doing rather than hearing a lot of excellent speaker talk. I'd rather be moving the movement than posturing to "lead a movement." I like passion. I don't see a lot of it lately. I see it at Sudo room more than I do at most places.

Sudo Room

Personal Philosophy

  • I favor collaboration and doocracy. Please work with me on the sudoroom github -
  • I do not enjoy listening to a lot of presentations and pitches. I prefer doing stuff.
  • If I'm wearing headphone I need to focus, please let me concentrate + do not interrupt me. I'm not trying to be rude, I just don't have a lot of time.


Life is to be explored. It is a place of abundance.


Sudo Room

I used to live in Oakland and miss it very much.

When I lived in Oakland, I volunteered at the Rock Paper Scissors Collective down the street. I helped clean up trash after First Fridays Art Murmur back when volunteers had to manage the security. It was not very fun doing security and telling angry hippie vendors we had to clear up the street or we would lose our art murmur license. It was not very fun picking up dirty beer and 40's in paper bags. Unfortunately those things have to be done.

It was more fun volunteering and doing the fun stuff like helping organize the Zine Library.

I would like to see Rock Paper Scissors Collective, Oakland youth, fun people who sew do more things with Sudo Room and build things. I would like to see more people have fun, especially if the people are from different social circles that wouldn't normally mix and it doesn't have to cost a lot of money.

Sudo Room again!

Useful Stuff

  • One of my friends Joe Reagle Wrote a nice book on collaboration in Wikipedia. He outlines a lot of interesting situations and ways people resolve conflict on Wikipedia. It might be useful to people in an open source hackerspace as well. ""
  • When I lived in Berlin I would often eat at Volkskuechen, which are these punk rock dinners that cost a $1. The emphasis was on making food, not buying it from a restaurant, or scavenging by dumpster diving. The food was usually better than what you got in restaurants. The focus was on creating cheap, healthy ways to eat food together. There were no book deals or bloggers or "thought leaders" people just did it
  • C-Base in berlin themes itself as a crashed spaceship. Maybe sudo room would be interested in creating some kind of grand narrative. when I think of sudo i think of grumpy unix sysadmins who look like the comic books store guy from the simpsons. maybe it could be like elvis!
