Noisebridge Does Classes!

They do all sorts of events and lessons, from lock-picking to programming circuits, and web development.
There are less techy gatherings, like: “Learn & create calligraphy, lettering, fonts, handwriting, and all things letters.”

You can Build Cool Things with Electronics

No, this is not a boring long class in C++.  Nightbridge is a fun open space welcome to anyone interested in the creative uses of technology, Circuit hacking night.  Pick a kit (fees will apply): LED cube, Atari Punk Console, Hello My Name Is Badge in lights, and many many more.
Noisebridge will provide all of the tools and instruction. Make a present for the sweet nerd in your life, or create something new that you can show off to your friends. Best of all, have fun learning something new, while hanging with your nerdy, I mean uber cool E&A friends (I’ll be first in the nerd line!). We can head out for a drink and some food nearby and share our creations.
Bring cash for your kits ($10-50) and note that Noisebridge is a non-profit that survives completely on donations.  While Circuit Hacking Night is free donations are welcome and accepted.

e-Stewards Enterprises

Your company can join e-Stewards® Enterprises! It shows that you believe in recycling responsibility, ensuring that electronics and components are recycled in a responsible way, from the manufacturing process to decommissioning and the steps in between.

What is e-Stewards Enterprises, exactly? Well it’s a group of companies and institutions committed to using e-Stewards Recyclers that meet the world’s highest standards for responsible recycling. These standards were created by the Basel Action Network (BAN), along with leading electronics recyclers, certification industry experts, and occupational, health, and safety specialists.

By becoming an e-Stewards Enterprise and using e-Stewards® Recyclers, a company knows that old computers and other electronics aren’t going to be disposed of in a way that harms people or the environment, and that, whenever possible, electronic components will be recycled and reused.

Here is the roster for the new e-Stewards Leadership Council (representatives from, e-waste collectors, recyclers, electronics mfg, corporations and regulatory groups) :

  • Capstone Wireless (TX)
  • CloudBlue (OH)
  • Electronic Recyclers International (CA)
  • Surplus Exchange (MO)
  • WeRecycle! (NY)
  • Philips Services Corp
  • Samsung
  • Wells Fargo
  • Natural Resources Defense Council
  • two government representatives will round out the Council

You have seen the burning or dumping of electronics into streams, landfill and empty lots. Recovery of the precious metals and disposal of the toxins in these items is essential. Lead exposure is one of the many consequences when electronics are not properly disposed of. e-Stewardship addresses this problem and provides standards of recycling, waste reduction and environmental safety.
