regular meeting

1.1 PROMPT: There are no wrong answers

1.2 Would you like to very briefly introduce yourself?

My name is Nick. I mostly do javascript stuff. I usually go to wednesday / thursday js stuff / function friday.

1.3 What brings you to sudo room?

I don't know, I guess I just like hearing about what people are doing-- ya know? Um, yeah it's just nice talking to people about this stuff.

1.4 What do you want to hack or learn at sudo room (if you know)?

It's been really nice to come here and get help with hardware because that's something I don't really know about.

1.5 What do you want to share or teach at sudo room (if you know)?

Hm, I -- i'm fairly confident with node stuff. I definitely would like to help out with that.

1.6 What's your plan to abolish sexual violence, police brutality and white supremacy? in 10 words or less

Yeah, I guess, hmmm... I've come up with an answer, I guess I don't have a plan because it seems like a really hard and complicated question. Uh, hmhm... But there's also no wrong answers so...

1.7 What's your plan to end the anthropocene extinction, world hunger, global warming and global inequality? in 10 words or less

I mean that's easier, we can all just keep living and reproducing, and the world will end. Nothing against babies by the way.

1.8 What's your plan to ensure freedom and privacy of communication for all? in 10 words or less

I guess I'll just use one word -- decentralization.

1.9 expectations

No, that sounds good.

1.10 Have you ever been banned, asked to take a break, or similar, from a hackerspace or any other collective?

No, no, I think this is the first -- it's definitely the first hackerspace you've been in. Yeah, I think just this one.

1.11 What are the best ways to contact you?

nichoth@gmail.com

ssb -- nichoth

1.12 What is your schedule like? Do you have particular times that you think you'll be around? You should check out our regular events!

Yeah, those events listed above -- not really other stuff.

1.13 Explain the next steps in the membership process and what they should expect

Greg

1.1 PROMPT: There are no wrong answers

1.2 Would you like to very briefly introduce yourself?

Yes, I would. My name is Greg. I've been here a few times before in the past few months. I've met some people, I'm bad at remembering names. I'm a programmer, I work in Berkeley. I like hackerspaces as a place to hang out and talk with people who are interested in computer technology broadly speaking.

1.3 What brings you to sudo room?

Um, it's a hackerspace and it's relatively close to me.

1.4 What do you want to hack or learn at sudo room (if you know)?

Electronics, stuff like arduinos, building more complicated circuits, soldering things, all that kind of stuff that I'm interested in but not formally trained in.

1.5 What do you want to share or teach at sudo room (if you know)?

So I do software development as my full time job, so if there are people around me who are interested in learning this about professional software developer, I have some things that I can teach people, I suppose.

1.6 What's your plan to abolish sexual violence, police brutality and white supremacy? in 10 words or less

Don't try to solve them with ten word or less answers.

1.7 What's your plan to end the anthropocene extinction, world hunger, global warming and global inequality? in 10 words or less

Much the same answer. Those are such different problems ..;. mutually exclusive problems. Part of the way that we've historically very much reduced world hunger has been using industrial scale techniques for agriculture that contribute to climate change... creating systems that make it harder to feed billions of people.

1.8 What's your plan to ensure freedom and privacy of communication for all? in 10 words or less

Yet another thing that doesn't suit itself to ten word or less answers. Promoting encryption.

1.9 expectations 1.10 Have you ever been banned, asked to take a break, or similar, from a hackerspace or any other collective?

Nope.

1.11 What are the best ways to contact you?

Matt: Mazacoin

https://mazacoin.org/

Proposal to accept Mazacoin as donations and membership dues, in order to support the cultural values this cryptocurrency epitomizes, moreso than selecting any one particular "ideal" cryptocurrency.

Concerns, not objections, voiced: - conversion to other currencies - practical value - long-term viability - people behind the project - recordkeeping burden
