Noisebridge asks prospective members to fill out a form with a name and a
way to contact them.  They need two members to sign their form as
"sponsors".  Their names are read out at 4 consecutive meetings to give
people a chance to get to know them or to object to their being a member.
They need to show up at a meeting after the 4th time their name is read,
introduce themselves, and then people at the meeting (not necessarily
members) can ask them questions.  They leave the meeting to buy us beer
and/or cookies, and then members arrive at consensus.   Only members can
block consensus and it only takes one to block.
