I write this because I do not want my silence regarding the changes to imply approval of them.
I do have hard feelings about the cleaning weekend. Many of the things I did to improve the space in past years have been undone, and the space is worse off in my opinion. For me it is not “just stuff” it is significant time and expense I spent on the space, it feels like a rejection of the love and care I put into the space; and I am fine having hard feelings about it. Of course, I could just be being over sensitive.
I accept that that is how do-ocracy goes sometimes; I’ve made changes that people didn’t approve of myself. I think these changes are a step in the direction of entropy and the workspaces changed are less functional now. I could be wrong so I hope the new changes end up working out for Noisebridge and I’m told there is more work to be done to fix them up. In the meantime I have no intention to spend time or effort reverting them.
Eventually I’ll probably get over it. For now, I’m taking an indefinite break from working on Noisebridge, but I haven’t been doing much anyway lately. I’ll keep up with the permit stuff for 2169 Mission I’ve already committed to, but since the space no longer matches the permit drawings and the sewing area blocks our fire exit some things will need to be adjusted if/when we need to get inspections.
