Space Search / Evaluation

The Omni:

  • Deposit lowered to $30k
  • Estimated move-in date of June 1st

8th and Alice:

  • new guy who was just catching up and i had to give the whole sudo pitch all over again. He was unable to update on the state of the building

Fund-raising

The Omni or not to Omni?

  • We will commit to a joint Omni fundraiser, with a June 1st deadline.
  • If the Omni falls through, then we will have a sudo space individual fundraiser. Idea is a harmonious-hackathon / pay-what-you-can dev bootcamp one weekend. It can be paired with this idea:

Offer to host an RSVP Dinner w/ Francisco and Liberation Food Worker Cooperative

  • Title: "Sudo Room Reboot Kick-Off Dinner"

Grants

  • At the same time, until we know more about the Omni, grants have been kind to us.

Next Steps

  • Now we have fundraising@lists.sudoroom.org . This is the way it will work.
  • There are 41 grants to apply to. All grant writers will receive 50% of the grant if won.

Sudoers can make money helping sudo room, sudo makes cash. [max to send out announcement email].

Outreach

  • Find Partners (e.g. co-leasers, sub-leasers)
  • Talk to sudoers
  • Mobilize

Hack our Current Space

  • Goal: "Optimize Sudo Room to GAIN MOMENTUM"
  • A lesson recently learned: "Everything needs a place" more than they need to be organized with respect to each other.
  • Approaches
  • Organize
  • Tool area
  • Undefined zone by window
  • Wire-rack shelf
  • Table
  • Around sink area (storage)
  • Remove
  • Bikes
  • Trash
  • Non-useful objects
  • Next Steps
  • Clean tonight, on-going re-organization
  • Take an inventory (a naive list on the wiki)
