FAQs:

1) Is there a fee?
Gangplank does not charge a monetary fee for use of space. We ask that if you find the space to be meaningful, you give back in a way that is meaningful to you.

2) Do I need to register in advance to reserve a desk or make an appointment?
We do not require any form of reservation to use our drop in space. Come on in. When you get here, almost anyone in the space can give you a tour. If you have questions, just ask and as you get to know the answers, help other newbies feel welcome when they come in.

3) Do you have meeting or event space available for reservation?
We have several conference style rooms available for use. To reserve a space more than a week out, email Chandler@gangplankhq.com. The week of, there is a sheet on the door of each room, you can write your reservation there as long as it is during regular office hours.

4) How can I get desk where I can leave my things?

As a community, we want as much of people’s presence and as little of their stuff as possible. We often find that those who are a good fit are typically the people who are around and giving back so often that we mistake them for the crew who do have desks. Come in, meet people, build relationships, and contribute where you can. The value in Gangplank is far more the relationships than a desk anyway.

5) When is the best time to come by?

Anytime we are open is good. Wednesdays tend to be popular as we have our brownbag speaker series from noon to 1pm and hacknight that evening. If it is your first time coming in, events are also a good way to connect. Check out our facebook page and meetup.com page for upcoming events.

Coming soon:
-Virtual tour of the space.
-Information on equipment that is available for use and how to reserve it.

Gangplank Book Club for September

September’s book is, as we are known to do, a real departure from last month’s book. Join us on Wednesday, September 10th at 6 PM, as we discuss Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s newest book, “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder.”

His general thesis of the book:
With the velocity of change it is impossible to predict if, when and how things will change. Better, then, to create organizations and platforms that benefit from disorder and change (antifragile) than ones that are broken or made obsolete (fragile).
Taleb says, “The antifragile loves randomness and uncertainty, which also means – crucially – a love of errors, a certain class of errors. Antifragility has a singular property of allowing us to deal with the unknown, to do things without understanding them – – and do them well. Let me be more aggressive: we are largely better at doing that we are thinking, thanks to antifragility. I’d rather be dumb and anti-fragile and extremely smart and fragile, anytime.”

The New York Times says, “Mr. Taleb — who has worked as a derivatives trader and quantitative analyst, and who holds the title of distinguished professor of risk engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University — writes with great certainty and vigor. At his best he serves up provocative theories that encourage us to look at the world anew. He reminds us of the limits of Enlightenment reason, goads us into thinking about why small might be less fragile than big (a rule, he implies, that applies to animals and corporations alike) and gives us a renewed appreciation of practical knowledge (of the sort possessed by engineers and entrepreneurs) as opposed to the sort of academic knowledge acquired in school.”

Here’s his talk at an “Authors at Google” talk he gave on the book:

Remember. . .ours is a “no-guilt” book club, so you don’t have to read the book to join in. Again, join us on Wednesday, September 10th at 6 PM, as we discuss Nassim Nichola
