This was the first maker shop that I visited, and it was awesome. The people there are all great and I was lucky enough to visit the place twice while I was staying in San Francisco. On the first visit I attended a lecture on machine learning, the politically correct term for artificial intelligence. The lecture was great and some really cool things were presented like clustering, semi autonomous vehicles, and helicopters flying upside down.
The second time I visited I interview John for a radio documentary on maker shops I am working on and he let me know a bunch of really cool things about how everything is set up, the non-profit status, and the community behind it.
Things talked about while on my visit to Noise Bridge:
Podcasting, Bookbinding, Origami, Nims, Max/Msp, Arduino, Ham Radio, Record Stores, Field Recorders, Piezos,…ect
Noise bridge is a “hackerspace” and can be found on the web here https://www.noisebridge.net
