Big Blue Button worked well enough though it Olivia voiced concerns about it being too desk/laptop focused. James will investigate that.

Tech tasks


  • added Captcha to for CiviCRM and Drupal forms;
  • removed the spam from CiviCRM. Required a clearing of all cached user data in Drupal;
  • backed up CiviCRM/Drupal databases.

Nick got a copy of our web logs from Steve and is looking them over for security issues.


  • updated blog to the latest version and removed a bunch of unused themes and plugins;
  • installed the Pirate Rogue theme from git;
  • configured the Pirate Rogue theme and activated it. Our previous theme was old and not very friendly on mobile devices;
