April Fools: SudoBridge: A Financial Imperative
Citing massively increasing rents, Noisebridge and Sudo Room have announced their intention to consolidate the two physical spaces into one. While each hackerspace will maintain governmental autonomy, Sudo’s current room will act as HQ for both. Preempting space complaints, an 11th hour dual-consensus procedure between the two bodies agreed to a time sharing deal (literally after an 11 hour meeting seeking dual consensus).
Henceforth Noisebridge will exist at the location on Monday, Wednesday, Fridays, and Sundays, while Sudo Room will receive custody on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Cumbersome common equipment will be allowed to remain in the joint space, and large orange “DNH” stickers are heavily encouraged to prevent trolling.
In an exclusive interview with Mitch Altman he was quoted as saying “Yeah, it’s going to be a bit cramped, but I just came back from opening a hackerspace in India where I caught sight of some amazing proof-of-concept density-hacks.” Sudo originator Matt Senate showed his disapproval after his block was shouted down at the long approval meeting, later saying “Part of why I always wanted sudo was to get away from ‘that Noisebridge smell’. While I love my West-bay brethren, I think this is the right time for me to annouce my next big project, which is to begin a traveling open source install caravan, evangelizing for the adoption and education of open source software across the land. Meetings for the open source caravan project will be starting on Thursdays at 7PM.”
Yet overwhelmingly new ‘Noisebridge UBer Sudoers’ (or NUBS for short) welcomed the joint-venture. In interviews after the marathon merger details meeting, NUBS wishing to stay anonymous conceded “It’s not so bad, it’s still only 1.5 blocks from BART!”
Update: After catching word of the space-marriage, and not be outdone Ace Monster Toys were reported to hold an emergency council. At the roundtable, several members sweated late into the night, registering the freenode channels #sudobridge, #noiseroom, #acemonsternoise, among other variants.
