Our original reason for installing the cameras was so that members could 
see if any other members were at the space, and to generally advertise 
that there was activity going on. We've even discused building a 
telepresence robot, but that's still at the idea stage.

One time a member posted to our mailing list "Is anyone at the space?"
and we replied "we've been here all day and we're about to leave, where 
have you been?"
