[9:27pm] Bluestreak: I would like to meet him [9:27pm] Bluestreak: We should have a meet the candidate thing. [9:27pm] jokeefe: good idea [9:27pm] noe: We both do.

[9:33pm] jokeefe: motion passes [9:33pm] jokeefe: Burr-Feinstein forced-decryption bill is out and looks awful. [9:34pm] jokeefe: I signed on the appeal to Obama. [9:34pm] jokeefe: Campaigns Status - Pirate Con 2016 [9:35pm] jokeefe: srevilak says that Community Church is available on 6/25. About $300, IIRC. [9:35pm] Bluestreak: I like that space. [9:35pm] Bluestreak: Cash up front? [9:35pm] Bluestreak: How much we have in the account? [9:36pm] jokeefe: $1,172.64 [9:36pm] noe: Wow? [9:36pm] noe: I mean, wow! [9:36pm] jokeefe: We have $200 in website costs that hasn’t been paid yet, so it is less than that. [9:37pm] noe: We'll probably still need to fundraise in September/October, but that's pretty good. [9:37pm] jokeefe: We also need to pay for Freedom Rally, which is $300, IIRC. [9:37pm] noe: Did we already pay for Pride? [9:37pm] jokeefe: yes [9:37pm] jokeefe: A fundraiser in June/July would be good too [9:38pm] jokeefe: aquaticonions contacted Boston non-profit center (http://nonprofitcenterboston.org/reserve-meeting-space) [9:38pm] noe: Speaking of, I think Aaron would like a Somerville event for when we hand the signatures over near the State House. [9:38pm] jokeefe: I think we would either do Conference Center East (125 theater style) for $450 or Wayne Glynn Community Room (75 theater style) for $375 [9:39pm] jokeefe: Full day is 8 hours [9:39pm] jokeefe: aquaticonions, is full day 8+ hours or 8 hours max? [9:40pm] jokeefe: oh I see Full-day rental: up to 8 hours beginning at 8:00 a.m. [9:40pm] jokeefe: Weekend (Saturday only) rental: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. [9:40pm] Bluestreak: I like the space in the photo! [9:40pm] aquaticonions: yeah, that's right [9:41pm] noe: I feel like we can fill WGCR pretty easily, but CCE might be a bit big. [9:41pm] jokeefe: aquaticonions, is there any flexibility of closing time? [9:42pm] aquaticonions: I don't believe so, but it might depend on whether or not someone is using the space after us [9:43pm] jokeefe: srevilak said that Roxbury community college requires that we provide a certificate for event insurance and requires a police officer to be present [9:43pm] jokeefe: if any exchange of money takes place. [9:44pm] jokeefe: Would appreciate it if you checked. Ideally we want 10am-6pm, with an hour on each end for setup. [9:44pm] jokeefe: and clean up [9:45pm] jokeefe: Also, do they allow food? [9:45pm] aquaticonions: I'm fairly sure we'd need to pay for the full day if we were going 9-7 [9:46pm] Bluestreak: Seriously RCC? [9:46pm] jokeefe: Agree, it is just that http://nonprofitcenterboston.org/reserve-meeting-space says they are available from 8am-4pm on Saturdays [9:46pm] aquaticonions: Think so, and if not they have an outdoor courtyard where you can [9:46pm] Bluestreak: Yes, too early to begin and end [9:46pm] aquaticonions: that was about the food thing [9:47pm] jokeefe: thanks aquaticonions [9:47pm] aquaticonions: np [9:47pm] jokeefe: Halley was still looking at Make Shift [9:48pm] jokeefe: Kendra at the South End Tech Center [9:49pm] noe: I haven't made a good connection at the Y, but will keep calling. [9:49pm] jokeefe: Lets aim to make a decision by next meeting. [9:49pm] jokeefe: NPC Boston looks good, but we need more info. [9:50pm] jokeefe: And it would be good to know about the other alternatives. [9:50pm] jokeefe: Sound good? [9:51pm] Bluestreak: SETC is also a good space. [9:51pm] Bluestreak left the chat room. [9:51pm] Bluestreak joined the chat room. [9:51pm] Bluestreak: Oops [9:53pm] noe: All right. [9:53pm] jokeefe: 2016 Campaign - Aaron James campaign site is up and they are working on adding to it and getting donations setup. [9:53pm] jokeefe: Signature collection is going well [9:53pm] Bluestreak: He needs media coverage [9:53pm] jokeefe: Going door to do is yielding a high hit rate [9:53pm] Bluestreak: Will bring ppl in [9:54pm] noe: We've got two blog posts so far! [9:54pm] jokeefe: Agreed, but ballot is primary goal for now. moot if that isn’t accomplished. [9:54pm] noe: (not really media coverage, but we're churning stuff out) [9:56pm] jokeefe: anything else? [9:57pm] Bluestreak: Well that SCATV meetup on Thurs would be really good… repeating myself [9:57pm] Bluestreak: WEStern Ma people [9:57pm] Bluestreak: Were in touch about cryptoparty [9:57pm] Bluestreak: Oh… Anyone have questions for me… I am meeting this guy working on the ALPR project [9:58pm] Bluestreak: Auto- license plate readers [9:58pm] Bluestreak: on Thursday. [9:58pm] noe: Sweet! [9:58pm] Bluestreak: email me at EMAIL REDACTED [9:58pm] jokeefe: you might contact Kade as well [9:58pm] Bluestreak: If you come with things you want me to ask him [9:58pm] Bluestreak: k [9:59pm] jokeefe: Key things are data retention, who has access and use [10:00pm] noe: Yeah, what kind of use should be sanctioned? Purely punitive? Only to assist prosecution? Only to assist a defense? [10:01pm] Bluestreak: Ostensibly the info will be used for toll evasion only [10:01pm] Bluestreak: but we suspect this isn’t true [10:01pm] jokeefe: ALPRs tend to be on police cars [10:02pm] jokeefe: we are at time [10:02pm] jokeefe: motion to adjourn? [10:02pm] noe: so motioned! [10:02pm] noe: 2nd? [10:03pm] Bluestreak: 2nd [10:03pm] jokeefe: all in favor? [10:03pm] Bluestreak: aye [10:03pm] Bluestreak: kissy kissy night night [10:03pm] Bluestreak left the chat room.
