David Weekly is one of the smartest, best-connected guys in the Valley. He isn't a money-grubbing asshole, or a shameless self-promoter, so most of the New SV Crowd probably has no clue who he is, or that he "matters." The rich New Guard of SV knew / hung out with David Weekly back when they were the broke New Kids. Spending what is currently $41 to get time with him is a serious bargain.
Oh yeah, and he pretty much started the whole Hacker Dojo thing, the whole hackathon thing, etc. He's seriously just too much of a good, nice guy to put himself out there like that, though. So there, I did it for him!
These cakes are rumored to cure cancer but the FDA is hesitant to prescribe them because in clinical trials some patients had the side effect of having their heads blow up due to an overloead of awesomeness.

They made it pretty easy for me to pick.
Can I just go there and ... hang out?
Friday at 7 is a good time to come, we all drink.
The city of Mountain View has shut down more than half of Hacker Dojo, stopped all classes/events/conferences of more than 49 people, and is still threatening to shut the rest down unless the Hacker Dojo does about $250,000 in upgrades and fees to the city. Their concerns are primarily zoning, permitting, and ADA.
Almost everything that isn't raising the money to keep the space open has sadly been put on the back burner for the last 6-ish months so we can keep the city from shutting us down.
You would probably get more donors with full and complete information.
Bring your laptop, great place to kick it. If you like it, $100 a month for 24/7 access is one of the best deals I've come across.
Maybe the guys of indiegogo know somebody who can supply this.
