Summary

Minutes

 
21:28 < srevilak> hi bestpiggy
21:29 < bestpiggy> hey there, sorry im late
21:29 < srevilak> no worries, just us so far
21:30 < srevilak> was nice to see you at the potluck
21:33 < bestpiggy> yes! you too!
21:34 < bestpiggy> i havent gotten an agenda email, do we have one?
21:34 < srevilak> Here's an agenda
21:34 < srevilak>
        https://masspirates.org/wiki/January_4th,_2016_IRC_Meeting
21:36 < srevilak> Our last fundraising email brought in $100 in
        contributions.  I'll call that a success
21:36 < srevilak> And, between now and Jan 20th, we (I) have to file a
        year end report with the office of campaign and political finance
21:37 < srevilak> Finally, we're supposed to have a campaign planning
        meeting on Sat @ Pizzaria Regina in allston
21:37 < srevilak> that's what I have
21:37 < srevilak> anything to add?
21:39 < bestpiggy> nothing to add on my end so fa
21:39 < bestpiggy> far*
21:40 < davidd> https://twitter.com/JasonLeopold/status/684199158182494214
21:41 < srevilak> wow ...
21:42 < bestpiggy> thats just cold. Blank pages
21:44 < srevilak> yeah, they could have at least sent redacted pages,
        with a few words here and there :)
21:44 < bestpiggy> something!
21:45 < bestpiggy> waste of paper
21:45 < bestpiggy> or not, could be totally reused for printer paper
21:45 < srevilak> Believe it or not, Amtrak
        is pretty bad with redactions.  Check out
        https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2015/mar/19/amtrak-lounge-car-complaints/
21:46 < srevilak> I like the one that's completely blacked out, except
        for the words "no snack car"
21:48 < bestpiggy> not cliffhangers!
21:49 < bestpiggy> I'd like to know about the person who sits down and
        goes, " let me just black all this out- it will still make sense and
        give the information needed"
21:51 < srevilak> In theory, there are a list of exemptions, and agencies
        are supposed to give you everything that not exempted
21:51 < srevilak> Reality is often different.
21:51 < bestpiggy> it's like the intersting scenes in (if you've ever
        seen it) from Good Morning Vietnam (1987) when they show the sensorship
21:52 < srevilak> Gosh, I haven't seen that movie in ages
21:52 < srevilak> I don't remember the censorship scenes though
21:54 < bestpiggy> awkwardly enough, if you watched the movie on
        television - they got cut for time issues
21:55  * srevilak covers face, shakes head
21:55 < bestpiggy> which is stupid, because it plays a central part to
        the theme of movie, i think
21:56 < srevilak> I may have to watch it again.

21:58 < bestpiggy> So, it looks like maybe no one else is gonna make it?
21:58 < srevilak> bestpiggy: I think you're right
21:58 < srevilak> we're about at time, shall we adjourn?
21:59 < bestpiggy> 2nd
21:59 < srevilak> night -- cu
21:59 < bestpiggy> good night
