Sudo Room Meeting 23 Sep 2015


  • Icebreaker: What's your favorite thing about jellyfish?
    • sigma: As they are not fish, the preferred term is jelly or sea jelly. Also, (some) glow. /wikiknowledge
    • Matt: he/him, sudo room, when a jelly fish dies it's never alone, they seem to die in groups
    • Sam: he/him, sudoerrrrzzzzzz, there are some jellyfish that are immortal e.g. [Turritopsis dohrnii]( they may hold the key to [biologically]( immortal human life as well
    • Ari: male pronouns, ; glowing is cool. My first day in the bay area, first place I've come to is sudo room. Coming from NY, originally LA.
    • daniel: he/him, ~3 year sudoer, they seem harmful, I don't know if all jelly fish are like that, but I've heard things about people being allergic.
    • "ocean max" aka "sub max" aka "submarine max": he/him/royal we, Portuguese Man-o-wars?
    • Morgan: "hey you" works just fine: grumpy noncy programers union? I've stepped on jellyfish before. Spongebob squarepants (favorite thing).
    • Andrew: he/him, attempting to poke into hackerspaces to see what is happening (might use this place to work on some stuff). Sea jellies are beautiful to look at. In my opinion.
    • Robb aka "robbelstiltskin" aka "robbsputin": he/him, sudo room / food not bombs / occupysf, favorite thing about jellyfish is that I"'m a jellyfish whisperer and they don't sting me. ever. even as a child, I have powers. seriosly."=trolling. my favorite thing is that one didn't sting me when i picked it up as a kid Spirit animal?
    • Cere: call me whatevah! I'm doing some kinetic art stuff right now. Sigh, Jellyfish... whatever.


juul: Jerome physically attached (attacked?) one of our members. This is a violation of our safe space policy. Even if Jerome and the member in question can resolve this through mediation Jerome has demonstrated that he will escalate a verbal conflict to physical violence (twice?) and as such we should not allow him in the sudo/omni space again.


Matt: this past weekend we had a rummage/bake sale & made a few ($600) hundred dollars. We're having another one!!!! This Sunday 9/27 10am-10pm: Schedule: 10am – Open Rummage Sale + Bake Sale 12pm – Open Meal Service (Lunch / Dinner) All day until 8pm – Live Music / Performances 8pm – Movie Night After the meeting tonight Matt is going to go through stuff in sudo room in order to find things to sell at the rummage sale this Sunday!!!!!!1111

Robb: you can run asterisk voip server on an openwrt router!

Ari: I'm projecting. Or rather, I will be projecting over the next several months. We'll be projection-bombing parts of the city. Let me know if you want IN. Contact Ari via

Note from IRC: "jerkey 8:14 can someone make an announcement that muxlux is working on an asterisk server for Omni and needs help getting VOIP phones to work with it? 8:14 the goal is to have telephones all over omni, and at the front door (outside) instead of a doorbell"
