So on the locked server area, we've been down this path before. I've sure we are all fine upstanding folks, but the space is not exactly 'secure' from any guy walking in off the street. I would like to get some stuff up for Brandon to keep things like membership info and it would be fun to play with allowing folks to carry balances to do kewl things like buy a Coke with your cell phone (which we are a freaking Maker space, if we can't set that up here, where can we?) There is a small amount of due diligence in taking some steps to secure that. Not saying that it would get hacked but I have yet to find a spot in the space where something won't get cables unplugged, moved, etc.
I don't think its too much to say that there should be an area or too that is not wide open. Yes there is locksport, but if someone decided that they needed to start doing that, we would have a very different issue on our hands.
