21:27 < srevilak> I hope your path is less roundabout than MA's.
21:27 < srevilak> We legalized by state referendum, but the state
        legislature has been seriously dragging their heels on it
21:28 < srevilak> which, unfortunately,is how our state legislature
        tends to treat laws passed by referendum

21:33 < srevilak> hi moses
21:34 < hvxgr> Good for me to watch, I like pirates use of FLOSS tools.
        Been trying to promote use in Green pty of etherpad under wikimedia domain
        (I think).
21:36 < hvxgr> URL for new blog?
21:36 < jokeefe> ahoy Moses
21:36 < srevilak> hvxgr: new blog?
21:36 < jokeefe> We are just going over the the conference todo list

21:36 < papegaai> Title: Massachusetts Pirate Party | The Party of
        Open: Open Government, Open Culture, Open Innovation & People First

21:39 < papegaai> Title: April 27th, 2017 IRC Meeting - Mass Pirate Wiki
        (at masspirates.org)
21:45 < srevilak> WRT to the list, I'll assemble my things, take care
        of my todos on tomorrow night, and will be there at 9am for setup.
        Will focus on A/V & streaming setup
21:45 < jokeefe> great
21:45 < jokeefe> I will do the same
21:46 < srevilak> In terms of the open space session (pirate policy):
        here is what I had in mind
21:46 < srevilak> We'll do two breakout sessions.
21:47 < srevilak> First session: each group picks a policy plan and
        tries to come up with ideas
21:47 < srevilak> Second session: each group tries to come up with goals
        for the next year
21:47 < jokeefe> works for me
21:47 < srevilak> We'll give each group large sheets of easel paper and
        markers, where they can jot ideas
21:48 < srevilak> and the end, we'll collect the sheets, transcribe,
        and go from there
21:48 < jokeefe> sounds good
21:48 < srevilak> cool
21:49  * srevilak ran a precinct meeting last week.  First time
        facilitating with easel paper.
21:49 < srevilak> Take notes in front of a group, and plaster them around
        the room
21:49 < srevilak> worked well.
21:49 < jokeefe> great
21:50 < jokeefe> In terms of sign ups
21:50 < jokeefe> 1 on meetup
21:50 < jokeefe> 6/21 on FB
21:50 < srevilak> five on civi, three on piryx
21:51 < srevilak> I'm hoping we get walk ins :/
21:52 < jokeefe> well more people gave piryx, so I suggest you count
        anyone who gave this year
21:52 < srevilak> On the other hand, we have 20 speakers
21:52 < srevilak> Which more or less makes this a conference where
        everyone presents.  That's not such a bad thing
21:53 < srevilak> speaking of which, I have a deposit report to file
21:53 -!- Moses [webchat@82.136.vp.hyn] has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
21:53 -!- m [webchat@82.136.vp.hyn] has joined #masspirates
21:53 < jokeefe> ahoy m
21:54 < jokeefe> anyhow. that is all I have
21:55 < jokeefe> when you have the video done after the conference,
        I can help upload it so we get it done soon after it
21:56 < jokeefe> anything else?
21:57 < hvxgr> I will watch for video or audio after the conf, and
        touch base a couple of times on IRC.  I'm impressed, but expected to
        be impressed.  :->
21:58 < srevilak> hvxgr: we are humbled :)
