Noisebridge is a success in the sense that if you think of a hackerspace 
in the Americas, you likely end up thinking of them.

Noisebridge is a failure in the sense that all of the original members 
have long since departed off to other projects due to the organisation's 
inability to adapt to growth, changes, and control. As a result, we have 
a hackerspace that is the butt of all jokes but at the same is quite 

So maybe Noisebridge is a success, just not as a hackerspace.
