[9:07pm] jokeefe: we had the Democracy/IT Meeting on Saturday
[9:07pm] jokeefe: three people attended
[9:08pm] jokeefe: we talked a lot about finding a better way for people to communicate and self organize
[9:08pm] jokeefe: steps are:
[9:08pm] jokeefe: 1. put out a call with our requirements for suggestions for tools to use and other advice
[9:09pm] jokeefe: 2. take the suggestions and setup three or so options
[9:09pm] jokeefe: 3. let people play with the options
[9:09pm] jokeefe: 4. go with the one that works
[9:10pm] G: erm... technology options? like programs?
[9:10pm] jokeefe: discussion was about message boards vs tools like slack, but one person suggested that reddit code is open source so that might work better
[9:10pm] jokeefe: yes
[9:10pm] G: i'm embarssaingly lowtech
[9:10pm] jokeefe: no worries, that is one of the requirements
[9:10pm] BrianShaw: as are a lot of the people we want voting for us
[9:10pm] jokeefe: aye
[9:11pm] jokeefe: and we need ways that people can plug in easily and find pirates in their area and self organize
[9:12pm] jokeefe: email isn’t cutting it, at least the way we are using it
[9:12pm] G: we'll need this to get that senate seat 
[9:12pm] jokeefe: or 40
[9:12pm] jokeefe: or were you thinking Federal?
[9:12pm] G: Warren. lol
[9:12pm] G: i might have started a fire on our FB page
[9:12pm] jokeefe: 9 house reps are a good target as well
[9:12pm] G:  
[9:13pm] jokeefe: oh?
[9:13pm] G: i shared one link suggesting Warren's seat was up
[9:13pm] jokeefe: ah, yeah heard that poll.  haven’t looked at the cross tabs yet
[9:13pm] G: some people were very..... excited about it
[9:14pm] jokeefe: well we have local offices they can run for. much easier.
[9:14pm] G: yep, much more realistically
[9:14pm] G:
[9:15pm] jokeefe: we set the date for the next one for 2/18.  it is up at https://masspirates.org/wiki/2017_Event_Calendar

[9:20pm] G: basically if they have to break in, they gonna break stuff
[9:20pm] G: so just leave it open for them 
[9:20pm] jokeefe: mostly passive surveillance on their part 
[9:21pm] G: my mouth so big there's no point pretending to hide things
[9:21pm] Castaway_: Thanks for the agenda link. It's a great agenda!
[9:21pm] Castaway_: Do I have to register my id? Sorry it's off topic.
[9:21pm] G: nope, if you wanna tell us who you are you are welcome to (optional)
[9:21pm] G: I'm Garret Kirkland, from Lowell
[9:22pm] Castaway_: I'm Andrew Sullivan, from Vermont
[9:22pm] jokeefe: you don’t Castaway_
[9:22pm] jokeefe: cool
[9:22pm] Castaway_: OK, thanks!
[9:22pm] jokeefe: welcome
[9:22pm] G: ahoy!
[9:22pm] Castaway_: Ahoy!
[9:23pm] jokeefe: Talked with a journalist about setting up a cryptoparty for journalists and doing a FOIA training
[9:23pm] BrianShaw: back to what you were saying, is the Cryptoparty all set for tomorrow or are you still looking for people?
[9:23pm] jokeefe: tomorrow is fine
[9:23pm] BrianShaw: I have a conflict but want tobe sure. Great
[9:23pm] jokeefe: mostly looking for people for future events
[9:23pm] jokeefe: especially for one in Rhode Island
[9:24pm] G: Rhode Island, MA? 
[9:24pm] Castaway_: Does the national party have specific guidelines for local surveillance ordinances? Do the Mass Pirates?
[9:24pm] G: they should just be part of our Commonwealth anyways
[9:25pm] jokeefe: Providence , G
[9:25pm] Castaway_: I tried to reach out to the administrator of the Vermont Pirate Party FB page, and I mentioned the possibility of organizing a a crypto party in Vermont.
[9:25pm] jokeefe: we have a mailing list https://lists.mayfirst.org/mailman/listinfo/cryptoparty_masspirates.org/
[9:25pm] papegaai: Title: Cryptoparty_masspirates.org Info Page (at lists.mayfirst.org)
[9:25pm] jokeefe: cool, Castaway_
[9:25pm] jokeefe: Don’t think the national party has specific guidelines for local surveillance ordinances
[9:25pm] Castaway_: Thanks! I'll try to sign up for the mailing list
[9:27pm] jokeefe: masspirates are working with Restore the 4th on some ordinances locally
[9:28pm] BrianShaw: it's worth asking national about the surveillance ordinances. Bring in the ACLU and police groups and such
[9:28pm] Castaway_: The Vermont Progressive Party's Platform actually addresses the idea of rights to privacy in digital media; I have wondered if Pirates in Vermont could caucus with the Vermont Progressive Party
[9:28pm] jokeefe: up to you
[9:29pm] jokeefe: Campaign Workshops - next one is 2/25, 11:00am-2:30pm, Campaign Workshop, Holyoke Public Library Community Room, 250 Chestnut St, Holyoke
[9:30pm] Castaway_: I'm getting ahead of myself, because the Vermont Pirate Party appears to be technically dormant according to the US Pirate Party website
[9:30pm] jokeefe: sadly, yes.
[9:30pm] Castaway_: Yes, it's technically dormant?
[9:31pm] jokeefe: it isn’t active to the best of my knowledge, but I haven’t looked at the FB/twitter accounts
[9:31pm] jokeefe: twitter account might be more active
[9:31pm] BrianShaw: well Bernie Sanders has raised a nice anti-corruption banner with a national campaign to boot
[9:32pm] BrianShaw: he doesn't have an answer for big government skeptics though
[9:32pm] G: we can def help check into that for you and reach out to our USPP peoples
[9:32pm] Castaway_: Yeah, it's technically dormant; I'll look for a Twitter account, but I think there is just a FB page
[9:32pm] jokeefe: https://twitter.com/piratepartyvt
[9:32pm] papegaai: Title: Pirate Party ⓋT (@PiratePartyVT) | Twitter (at twitter.com)
[9:32pm] Castaway_: That would be awesome
[9:32pm] jokeefe: vtpirateparty looks much less active
[9:33pm] Castaway_: OK, thanks. Who knew? I never saw that on the FB page!
[9:33pm] jokeefe: glad to help
[9:33pm] jokeefe: MassAlliance invited us to their trainings. They are rather more involved than ours, but we cover similar area. they are more workshops, but are free.
[9:34pm] moses joined the chat room.

[9:34pm] jokeefe: on campaign workshops
[9:34pm] Castaway_: There's a group called Right and Democracy that is active in Vermont and New Hampshire; they are independent of Bernie, but they advocate a lot of the issues fromhis campaign
[9:34pm] Castaway_: Ahoy!
[9:34pm] moses: ahoy
[9:35pm] jokeefe: good for them
[9:35pm] G: oh bernie..... bernie bernie bernie.....
[9:35pm] G:
[9:35pm] Castaway_: They endorse candidates, and they could endorse Pirate-Progressives
[9:35pm] G: is there a website?
[9:36pm] jokeefe: March is going to be pretty busy, so I don’t know if we will have our own training, depends on when I hear back from the Salem folks
[9:36pm] Castaway_: Bernie should not have endorsed HRC, but what can you do?
[9:36pm] moses: He had to our he'd look like a sore loser
[9:36pm] G: pffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft
[9:36pm] jokeefe: April is possible for another campaign training
[9:36pm] G: i cna't even go there

[9:37pm] jokeefe: We also have this talk: 3/24, 3-5pm, Annoying Legislators for Freedom: A talk with Alex Marthews, National Director of Restore the 4th, Encuentro 5, 9A Hamilton Place, Boston
[9:38pm] BrianShaw: nice
[9:38pm] G: are we gonna annoy legislators?
[9:38pm] jokeefe: for freedom
[9:38pm] moses: or be them
[9:39pm] jokeefe: that too
[9:39pm] moses: that's quite clever
[9:39pm] jokeefe: this is focusing on how the legislature works, or doesn’t
[9:39pm] BrianShaw: if they dont know we're unhappy they can't act on it
[9:39pm] jokeefe: BrianShaw, while we are on the topic, any campaigning questions?
[9:40pm] BrianShaw: Not really. I'm not in a good place to run for office this year, but am debating it longer term
[9:40pm] jokeefe: ok
[9:40pm] G: I told Captain that you wanted to run for .... i think it was Governor? 
[9:40pm] jokeefe:
[9:40pm] BrianShaw: Secretary
[9:41pm] jokeefe: oh, Galvin. get in line 
[9:41pm] BrianShaw: the guy who does all of the open data for the state, and can't screw up women's healthcare much even if he wants to
[9:41pm] jokeefe: lol
[9:41pm] jokeefe: also elections and some corporate regulation
[9:41pm] G: solid tactical move, there
[9:42pm] jokeefe: our objective for 2018 is to run more candidates for the legislature than the GOP. yes, we aim high
[9:42pm] jokeefe: Starting Local Chapters - any update G?
[9:43pm] G: i have not reached anyone else yet.  i started to call down that list but i only hit like a quarter of it
[9:43pm] Castaway_: Do you have a directory of all the popularly elected offices in the Commonwealth?
[9:43pm] G: then i been pulling 12 hour days every day
[9:43pm] G: but no i haven't been able to reach anyone else
[9:43pm] jokeefe: sorry, G. thanks for the calls
[9:43pm] G: ha no worry. i'm actually on the clock right now
[9:43pm] G:
[9:43pm] Castaway_: Greenfield and Northhampton would be good places for local chapters in MA
[9:44pm] jokeefe: Castaway_ all the elected offices, 1 sec
[9:44pm] Castaway_: Northampton
[9:45pm] jokeefe: doesn’t include city/town: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elepdf/Candidates-Guide-generic.pdf
[9:45pm] Castaway_: Woods Hole in Falmouth, too
[9:45pm] moses: woooo
[9:45pm] jokeefe: aye
[9:45pm] BrianShaw: why those places?
[9:45pm] moses: meee
[9:45pm] Castaway_: Full of radicals
[9:45pm] G: that's a loaded word
[9:46pm] G: what kinda radicals?
[9:46pm] G:
[9:46pm] Castaway_: Swashbuckling
[9:46pm] jokeefe: city usually has a mayor and 5-15 city councilors, and school committee
[9:46pm] Castaway_: That looks like a good list
[9:46pm] BrianShaw: maybe target more conservative parts of the state? Places that hate corruption but aren't satisfied with the big-government solutions we normally see from progressives?
[9:46pm] jokeefe: town has select board (3 or 5), town moderator, school committee, some other offices and for ~31 towns elected town meeting
[9:47pm] jokeefe: happy to BrianShaw, but we go where we can convince Pirates to run
[9:47pm] BrianShaw: true
[9:48pm] jokeefe: MAAPL Fight Foreclosure Campaign - organizing anti-foreclosure workshops for Feb., have a list, calling it
[9:48pm] G: hell i'd be happy to convince my damn friends in lowell to get up off their asses
[9:48pm] Castaway_: Has a Libertarian party run any candidates in recent years?
[9:49pm] jokeefe: I think so. Prez. and some statewide offices
[9:49pm] G: sure. my pals are libertarians. they run people
[9:49pm] jokeefe: Some county/legislative offices too
[9:49pm] jokeefe: don’t keep track of them that much
[9:49pm] G: nah me neither. well not closely
[9:49pm] jokeefe: too much to do 
[9:49pm] Castaway_: All libertarians are Pirates, whether or not they know it.
[9:50pm] Castaway_: From the website, your anti-foreclosure actions look awesome
[9:50pm] jokeefe: Fundraising & Conference - survey is up at https://masspirates.org/crew/forms/piratecon-2017-questionnaire
[9:50pm] papegaai: Title: Piratecon 2017 Questionnaire | Mass Pirates Crew (at masspirates.org)
[9:50pm] jokeefe: getting people to fill it out
[9:51pm] jokeefe: so we can pick a date and make reservation. sometime in April
[9:51pm] G: i filled mine out! all about that Article 14 baby
[9:51pm] G:
[9:51pm] jokeefe: thank you
[9:52pm] BrianShaw: can you send more info about foreclosures when you have a chance? It's been a potent issue here in Lynn
[9:52pm] BrianShaw: sorry back to business
[9:53pm] jokeefe: sure, BrianShaw. MAAPL = mass alliance agains predatory lending
[9:53pm] G: http://maapl.info/
[9:53pm] papegaai: Title: MAAPL – The Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending | A coalition of local and state-wide organizations working together to reverse the foreclosure crisis. (at maapl.info)
[9:54pm] jokeefe: we are helping them organize clinics where people get help to challenge their foreclosure. if you wanted to help organize a clinic in Lynn, that would be great
[9:54pm] jokeefe: thanks G
[9:54pm] jokeefe: so that’s all I have.
[9:54pm] jokeefe: I believe G wanted to talk about planning for the inevitable breakdown of society and BrianShaw wanted to talk about filtering fake news
[9:54pm] BrianShaw: I'll look into it
[9:55pm] BrianShaw: that will take more than 5 mins sadly
[9:55pm] jokeefe: well, I can stay on longer since it is more discussion
[9:55pm] jokeefe: or brainstorming
[9:56pm] BrianShaw: I may have to drop off at least part of the time. Any more agenda items?
[9:56pm] Castaway_: I was curious about fund-raising and crowd-funding
[9:57pm] jokeefe: that is all the agenda I have, BrianShaw
[9:58pm] BrianShaw: ok. Campaign funding or cause funding?
[9:58pm] jokeefe: Castaway_ anything in particular about fund-raising and crowd-funding?
[9:58pm] G: i got nothing. i'm multitasking my jobby job right now
[9:59pm] Castaway_: Yeah, I'm interested in the idea of crowdfunding directly for candidates with non-profit 501c4's like Rights and Democracy
[10:00pm] BrianShaw: what are the regulatory requirements on those? disclosure of donors and what have you
[10:00pm] jokeefe: I thought VT’s campaign finance laws were fairly strict
[10:00pm] Castaway_: I'm also interested in the idea of teaming up with non-profit 501c3's on digital civil liberties issues and cryptoparties
[10:01pm] Castaway_: Well, Rights and Democracy can endorse candidates and lobby for legislation.
[10:01pm] G: Is RT4 a 501c3?
[10:01pm] G: Jamie
[10:01pm] jokeefe: usually, a campaign can spend on activities that aren’t just campaign activities, but 501c3/4 are more limited
[10:01pm] jokeefe: I think 501c4
[10:02pm] jokeefe: would need to check
[10:02pm] Castaway_: I think, in some ways, Rights and Democracy is a political arm of a 501c3 called the Vermont Workers Center, which raises awareness of workers rights, but can't endorse candidates
[10:03pm] jokeefe: Restore the Fourth, Inc. is a 501(c)4 nonprofit social welfare corporation. This means that your donation is not tax-deductible. https://restorethe4th.com/donate-now/
[10:03pm] papegaai: Title: Donate Now! Restore The Fourth (at restorethe4th.com)
[10:03pm] jokeefe: We are a 527 but report to the massachusetts office of campaign and political finance
[10:04pm] Castaway_: I would think that a lot can be done to raise awareness of Pirate issues by nonprofit 501c3's like the Peace and Justice Centers that have been set up in cities all over the country
[10:05pm] G: let's get em
[10:05pm] BrianShaw: agreed. Especially through cohosted events or what have you
[10:05pm] Castaway_: OK, so, as a 527, you are a party, and donations are not tax-deductible, aren't you?
[10:05pm] jokeefe: correct
[10:05pm] BrianShaw: (Also, I've decided the fake news stuff is better discussed at an event I'm going to tomorrow. https://www.meetup.com/citizen-futures/events/236100597/ )
[10:05pm] papegaai: Title: Truth, Fact, and the Future of Journalism (Co-hosted with StoryCode) - Citizen Futures (Boston, MA) | Meetup (at www.meetup.com)
[10:06pm] Castaway_: Now, are you a 527, and the US Pirate Party is a separate 527?
[10:06pm] jokeefe: most of the time, we are donating our time as volunteers so there isn’t a contribution to worry about and public libraries are free
[10:06pm] Castaway_: papegaai, that sounds like a cool Meetup!
[10:06pm] papegaai: Castaway_: Error: "that" is not a valid command.
[10:06pm] jokeefe: cool, BrianShaw
[10:06pm] G: freakin chat bots, man
[10:07pm] BrianShaw: we found Trump's 5 million illegals. Dammit, Cleverbot
[10:07pm] G: illegals? no we reject that term
[10:07pm] G:
[10:07pm] G: how unlibertarian... "illegals" 
[10:07pm] BrianShaw: so what is Alexa? Undocumented?
[10:08pm] Castaway_: undocumented workers 
[10:08pm] BrianShaw: lol
[10:08pm] jokeefe: Alexa is capital with an audio feed
[10:09pm] jokeefe: thanks for the event, BrianShaw. wish I could go to it
[10:09pm] Castaway_: Me, too
[10:09pm] BrianShaw: np. It's a fairly new meetup, this is their second event
[10:10pm] G: which meetup? i missed somethign
[10:10pm] BrianShaw: and I realize immigration is complicated  we just handle it rather badly as a country
[10:10pm] BrianShaw: https://www.meetup.com/citizen-futures/events/236100597/
[10:10pm] papegaai: Title: Truth, Fact, and the Future of Journalism (Co-hosted with StoryCode) - Citizen Futures (Boston, MA) | Meetup (at www.meetup.com)
[10:10pm] jokeefe: will have to add them to my list
[10:11pm] G: oh Faraone
[10:11pm] G: we know him
[10:11pm] jokeefe: yes
[10:11pm] G: or maybe heard of him in passing once
[10:13pm] G: and taht is the tie in to the fake news
[10:13pm] Castaway_: I bet this peace and justice center is just waiting to be informed by Pirates: http://www.walkerctr.org/mission
[10:13pm] papegaai: Title: Mission | The Walker Center, Auburndale, Massachusetts (at www.walkerctr.org)
[10:15pm] Castaway_: All news is fake news unless you seek out contrarian views. 
[10:15pm] G: if you are looking for contrarians, you came to the right place
[10:15pm] G:
[10:15pm] Castaway_: Ha! 
[10:15pm] BrianShaw: what's the situation with the Walker Center? Are we hosting an event there?
[10:16pm] Castaway_: I think you ought to host one. 
[10:16pm] G: but hey i gotta be getting moving along, i'll leave you all to it? or do we want a formal motion to adjourn or whatever?
[10:16pm] BrianShaw: pirates being formal
[10:16pm] G: *shrugs* i dunno man. i just troll here
[10:16pm] jokeefe: night G
[10:16pm] BrianShaw: goodnight
[10:16pm] G: night!
[10:16pm] G left the chat room. (Quit: Web client closed)
[10:17pm] Castaway_: Goodnight
[10:17pm] jokeefe: we aren’t having an event at the Walker Center at this time
[10:18pm] Castaway_: I didn't mean to confuse anyone. I just wanted to suggest a venue.
[10:19pm] Castaway_: There's a peace and justice center in Burlington, VT, too.
[10:19pm] jokeefe: cool
[10:19pm] BrianShaw: certain kinds of events could work. They sound like a larger venue
[10:20pm] Castaway_: I bet they would be open to the civil liberties issues that Pirates advocate
[10:20pm] jokeefe: there is a national meeting at #uspp tomorrow night - https://blog.pirate-party.us/national-meeting-125-9pm-10pm-est/, Castaway_
[10:21pm] Castaway_: I'd like to drop in on that if I can.
[10:21pm] Castaway_: Thanks for telling me.
[10:21pm] BrianShaw: I have to head out now. Goodnight!
[10:21pm] Castaway_: Can I log into it through https://webchat.pirateirc.net/ ?
[10:21pm] papegaai: Title: PirateIRC Webchat (Iris) (at webchat.pirateirc.net)
[10:21pm] Castaway_: Goodnight!
[10:21pm] BrianShaw left the chat room.
[10:22pm] jokeefe: please do, Castaway_
[10:22pm] jokeefe: yes https://webchat.pirateirc.net/
[10:22pm] papegaai: Title: PirateIRC Webchat (Iris) (at webchat.pirateirc.net)
[10:23pm] Castaway_: OK, thanks. For some reason, I was not able to log into the USPP IRC tonight. Do they have one every Tuesday on a server in London?
[10:24pm] jokeefe: they did have informal meetings on Tuesdays, haven’t seen it happen reliably though there are a bunch of people on at any time
[10:24pm] Castaway_: Before I head out, I'll paste another link to a peace and justice center in MA that I bet would like to host a Mass Pirates Event: http://traprock.org/
[10:25pm] papegaai: Title: Traprock Center for Peace & Justice (at traprock.org)
[10:25pm] Castaway_: Oh, that's good to know. Maybe I did log in, but no one was writing anything. 
[10:25pm] Castaway_: That nonprofit is in Greenfield, MA
[10:26pm] jokeefe: yeah, I remember traprock from when I was in the Green Party
[10:26pm] jokeefe: thanks for the reminder
[10:27pm] Castaway_: Maybe they are only interested in the Green Party, but I hope not. OK, well, thanks again. I'll try to catch the national IRC tomorrow night!
[10:28pm] jokeefe: thanks for joining us
[10:28pm] Castaway_: Thank you.
[10:28pm] jokeefe: have a wonderful night
[10:28pm] Castaway_: OK, goodnight
[10:28pm] jokeefe: sleep is rapidly approaching
[10:28pm] jokeefe: thanks
