[12:13] == SplendidSpoon [~SplendidS@38.111.ly.vgu] has joined #masspirates [12:13] <jokeefe> hi SplendidSpoon [12:13] <SplendidSpoon> hey [12:13] <SplendidSpoon> Lauren Pespisa, Cambridge/Boxboro [12:14] <jokeefe> 1. Committee Reports - Nothing I know of to report. [12:14] <jokeefe> 2. Planning for reform CFAA rally, April 13th - i will be there, others? [12:16] <srevilak> Steve Revilak, Arlington [12:16] <SplendidSpoon> I think I will be, what time does it go to? [12:18] <jokeefe> noon to 2pm would be my guess. [12:18] <srevilak> 60% chance of attending CFAA rally. Will try to make it [12:20] <jokeefe> ok [12:20] <jokeefe> I'll bring the banner(s) [12:20] <jokeefe> 3. Conference [12:21] <jokeefe> Poll was evenly split between the two alternatives. Want to lock things down today. [12:21] <jokeefe> Question seems to be one track or multiple. [12:22] <jokeefe> If going for more people then Community Church likely better choice. [12:22] <jokeefe> Maybe [12:22] <jokeefe> srevilak, so only the auditorium with fixed chairs is on offer? [12:23] == black_van [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #masspirates [12:23] <srevilak> jokeefe: yes, for community church, just the one room [12:24] <jokeefe> hi black_van [12:24] <jokeefe> on the conference agenda item, you going to CFAA/Aaron rally? [12:24] <black_van> hey sorry im late [12:25] <black_van> loopy from pain meds [12:25] <black_van> i'll let you know if cody wilson gets back to me about key note speaking [12:26] <jokeefe> thanks [12:26] <jokeefe> picking a site. [12:27] <black_van> pick the one that can hold more people [12:27] <jokeefe> that would be Community church [12:27] <black_van> or not, i dont ahve a strong oppinion [12:29] <jokeefe> Cost: community church ~$300 for ten hours, Demo Center, $150 for ten hours [12:29] <jokeefe> CC has wheelchair access, DC doesn't. [12:29] <srevilak> I concur with black_van: bigger venue, and try to fill it [12:30] <black_van> hey steve sorry to hear about your fathers passing [12:31] <jokeefe> So CC cost is $350. [12:32] <jokeefe> based on http://www.communitychurchofboston.org/home/rental-information/ [12:33] <jokeefe> opinions, SplendidSpoon, steverudy? [12:36] <black_van> does anyone know of a good free cad engineering software? [12:37] <jokeefe> sadly not. google has a 3d modeler. what do you want to do? [12:37] <black_van> make a 3 model [12:37] <jokeefe> for? [12:38] <steverudy> (I'll be going to the rally) [12:38] <jokeefe> srevilak, is CC still open on the 22nd? [12:39] <jokeefe> thanks steverudy [12:39] <steverudy> I agree-- bigger venue is better. Was the CC the one with one big room? [12:39] <jokeefe> yes [12:39] <SplendidSpoon> That sounds good [12:40] <jokeefe> Ok, CC it is then. [12:40] <jokeefe> srevilak, do you want to handle the paperwork? [12:41] <jokeefe> black_van, if you want to print it out, I have heard of people making things in minecraft and then printing it out. [12:41] <black_van> my dad is a jeweler, i want to be able to make stuff for him to cast [12:42] <jokeefe> ah [12:42] <passstab> blender? [12:43] <jokeefe> that comes recommended [12:43] <jokeefe> could also ask Clay. I'll send you his email address. [12:44] <black_van> cool thanks guys [12:45] <black_van> have we considered crowd funding as a way to finance this thing and build interest? [12:46] <black_van> I'd rather my five dollars for admission to be public [12:46] <black_van> the downside is we will lose a % to the crwodfunding website we use [12:46] <jokeefe> we will lose in fees anyway. [12:46] <black_van> how so? (you mean if we don't crowd fund right) [12:47] <jokeefe> if they are paying on-line then there are fees. [12:48] <black_van> right [12:49] <jokeefe> was thinking of one of the on-line ticket sellers - meetup or something [12:50] <jokeefe> eventbright, maybe [12:52] <jokeefe> actually campaign finance rules would prevent us from doing so. will have to use existing system. [12:52] <black_van> really what rule would we be breaking [12:53] <black_van> ? [12:54] <jokeefe> see the legal compliance at https://secure.piryx.com/donate/ZeBuHGQi/Massachusetts-Pirate-Party/ [12:54] <black_van> thanks [12:55] <jokeefe> we should make it free for younger than 18. [12:55] <black_van> but we wouldnt be taking donations. We would be crowd funding an event [12:55] <black_van> there seems like it could be distinct [12:56] <jokeefe> welcome to campaign finance laws [12:56] <black_van> hahaha word [12:56] <jokeefe> any other stuff folks want to bring up? [12:57] <black_van> yea srevilak do you go shooting often? [13:03] <jokeefe> motion to adjourn? [13:03] <black_van> k cya guys [13:06] <jokeefe> 2nded [13:06] <jokeefe> all in favor? [13:12] == black_van [email@example.com] has quit [Quit: Web client closed] [13:13] <jokeefe> thanks all ... [13:19] <srevilak> jokeefe: I'll see if CC is open on June 22nd, and start paperwork if so
