Yes, yes, the space has physically moved, but where does the community live? August 20, 2020 was the last recorded Tuesday meeting. I visited 2169 and 272 today and found an enormous hackerspace filled with promises of memories to be created, but very few hands with the bandwidth to provide all that’s required. There’s so much to do. Who is still here to implement do-ocracy?
Is this an unintentional reboot where those that truly care about Noisebridge are those that actively participate in its rehabilitation?
I’ll admit this is the first time I’ve visited Noisebridge in a while. Last time I was physically in the space was early 2020 and I felt like a tourist; this community is now foreign to me and I’m no longer part of it. There’s a complicated story of the reasons I detached, but a part of me still loves this madcap wonderland.
Walking through Noisebridge today made me wonder where the magic went. The answer is obvious - it’s in the community. Where did it go? Where does it live? It’s so quiet here.
