- Cory Doctorow visit. Vote to support working on an event while he's visiting the Boston area (which would likely involve coordination with some other groups in the area). We vote to work on the event, conditioned on us working with other groups.
- Pledge to fight patent trolls. We vote in favor of signing the pledge.
- Survey without Surveillance. Perhaps July 23rd?
- Pirate Picnic (Aug 2nd). Steve to make Civi event. See also: https://piratenpad.de/p/2015MAPPPicnic. We'll use the pad as a sign-up/what can you bring form. Need to decide on times for arrival, and times for advance team.
