21:00 < jokeefe> agenda - https://masspirates.org/wiki/July_20th,_2015_IRC_Meeting 21:00 < jokeefe> ids 21:00 < jokeefe> James O’Keefe, Somerville 21:01 < ben> Ben Cook, Quincy 21:01 < srevilak> Steve Revilak, Arlington 21:01 < Bluestreak> Lucia Fiero 21:03 < jokeefe> Reviews - July 18, David & Goliath Hackathon 21:03 < jokeefe> srevilak coordinated it. we focused on database setup. 21:03 < jokeefe> had about 11 people 21:04 * srevilak has a lot of post hackathon work to do ... 21:05 < Bluestreak> Such as? 21:06 < BenC> we might want to get a wiki page up with tasks so different people can share the work 21:06 < srevilak> One of the main issues is looking for ways to work around an apparent scalability issue in jquery 21:07 < srevilak> (scalability issue = "locks up browser for 5-10 seconds when you try to edit our list of 300 custom fields) 21:07 < srevilak> There's also the question of what problems we might run into w/a 300 question webform form 21:08 < srevilak> At the very least, it might be tedious if you want to look at the work you did on page 27, but have to click `next' 27 times in order to do that 21:08 < BenC> 300 is a huge number of questions 21:09 < srevilak> I'm starting to suspect that breaking our big long questionairre into several smaller ones might be the way to go. But big question there is how that will affect statement of fact generation 21:09 < jokeefe> To BenC’s question - srevilak, did you setup a Pirate Pad page? 21:09 < srevilak> jokeefe: nope 21:09 < jokeefe> I just setup https://piratenpad.de/p/MAAPLDataAndGoliath 21:10 < srevilak> BenC: mortage forclosures are complicated 21:10 < jokeefe> ain’t that the truth 21:10 < jokeefe> From a DB perspective, each of the sections should probably have its own table. 21:11 < srevilak> jokeefe: you can make arguments for both cases 21:11 < jokeefe> true 21:12 < srevilak> unfortunately, validating either argument will likely come down to "try and see" 21:13 < jokeefe> Well it is said that you need three versions to get software right ;-) 21:14 < jokeefe> srevilak, should we setup another hackathon? 21:14 < jokeefe> for MAAPL? 21:15 < Bluestreak> It could be a regular thing? 21:16 < srevilak> jokeefe: I think we need to figure out some combination of the performance and/or statement of fact generation issues 21:16 < jokeefe> Hopefully we will complete it, Bluestreak 21:16 < jokeefe> to see if we should continue down the CiviCRM path? 21:16 < Bluestreak> After one more? 21:19 < jokeefe> We had some browser issues that slowed down performance. We need to work them out since it hindered us noticably 21:21 < srevilak> As I said earlier, lot's of post-hackathon work to do :) 21:21 < jokeefe> ok 21:21 < jokeefe> thanks 21:21 < srevilak> hi bestpiggy! 21:22 < jokeefe> ahoy bestpiggy 21:22 < bestpiggy> hey all, sorry I am late. 21:22 < jokeefe> no worries 21:22 < srevilak> we're glad you're here 21:22 < jokeefe> anything anyone wants to add to the agenda before we proceed further? 21:25 < jokeefe> Just a reminder that our task list is at https://piratenpad.de/p/2015_MAPP_Tasks 21:25 < jokeefe> if there is anything you want to take on 21:25 < jokeefe> ahoy Kendra 21:25 < Kendra> hey 21:27 < jokeefe> Writing a blog post on http://privacysos.org/node/1778 21:27 < jokeefe> Updating public records law 21:27 < jokeefe> Seems up our alley 21:30 < jokeefe> BTW: I2PCon is in August in Toronto - https://geti2p.net/en/blog/post/2015/07/16/I2PCon 21:31 < jokeefe> ahoy noe 21:31 < noe> ahoy! 21:31 < jokeefe> haven’t heard from paper_waves about the July cryptoparty at parts and crafts 21:32 < jokeefe> Just a reminder to put down whether you are attending the Picnic at https://piratenpad.de/p/2015MAPPPicnic 21:32 < noe> supposedly this week? 21:32 < Bluestreak> ahoy noe 21:32 < noe> ahoy lucia! 21:32 < jokeefe> might be. cryptoparty could be next week 21:33 < noe> paper_waves seems busy, maybe its best to poke her via email? 21:34 < jokeefe> would you be able to do that? 21:35 < noe> yes. i cannot guarantee a swift reply, since its high season for parts and crafts 21:35 < noe> all the camps all the times! 21:35 < jokeefe> true. didn’t se anything at https://www.cryptoparty.in/boston 21:37 < jokeefe> so - August. We have the picnic. I don’t want to overextend us, but we have talked about a cryptoparty in Worcester and the Surveillance mapping Hackathon. 21:38 < jokeefe> srevilak, think MAAPL hackathon in August? 21:38 < jokeefe> August seems slow so more than two events is probably the limit 21:39 < jokeefe> assuming we iron out details of CiviCRM. 21:39 < srevilak> jokeefe: possibly. Will have a better idea in a few days 21:39 < BenC> was there a carpool to Worcester last time? I would have trouble getting all the way out there 21:40 < jokeefe> Yes 21:42 < jokeefe> Any weekends that don’t work for folks? 21:42 < noe> For me, last weekend of August. 21:43 < igel> lo 21:43 < Kendra> I am out of town the last week of August 21:43 < srevilak> aug 8th is sketchy for me 21:43 < jokeefe> ahoy igel, paper_waves 21:43 < igel> william fleurant, arrlington ma 21:43 < noe> that reminds me: noelani kamelamela, somerville ma 21:43 < noe> :\ 21:43 < paper_waves> I finally made another irc chat! after like 3 months.. halley, winchester 21:44 < Kendra> Kendra Moyer, East Boston 21:44 < jokeefe> thanks.

Flyering would be good. We’ll get it done. 21:51 < noe> I think sometimes, even when we advertize, we end up hanging with 3 or 4 people. 21:52 < jokeefe> Sometimes, but sometimes not. 21:52 < noe> we get the most attendance if we partner with other groups, I think. 21:52 * srevilak thinks noe is right :) 21:52 < jokeefe> agreed 21:52 < paper_waves> new people have been showing up every time, plus there is a little crew of returners which is nice too! 21:53 < Bluestreak> Not feeling so hot. 21:53 < Bluestreak> Taking off. 21:53 < noe> hooray! 21:53 < jokeefe> night! 21:53 < Bluestreak> night all 21:53 < paper_waves> jokeefe that sounds great 21:53 < noe> Night, Lucia! 21:53 < igel> heh 21:53 < igel> i invited like 3 or 4 to go to one of the last ones, 21:54 < igel> but it was the night before :/ 21:54 < jokeefe> so a cryptoparty in the 2nd weekend or last weekend of August might be iffy, but the 3rd and 4th seem ok from what I have heard today. 21:54 < jokeefe> ? 21:54 < igel> for worcester? 21:54 < noe> 3rd or 4th should work for me. 21:55 < paper_waves> cool, we can book a new date on wednesday 21:55 < paper_waves> (during the party) 21:55 < jokeefe> sure, kids welcome? 21:55 < paper_waves> totes! 21:56 < jokeefe> ok, good. maybe my youngest will come 21:57 < jokeefe> well we are at time. 21:57 < jokeefe> any announcements? 21:57 < paper_waves> glad I could make this for the end at least 21:57 < Kendra> nite all 21:57 < jokeefe> me too 21:58 < paper_waves> and thanks everyone for your support of the cryptoparties 21:58 < BenC> i think they're really important outreach, no matter how many people are there 21:58 < jokeefe> we may not be Berlin, but we try 21:59 < paper_waves> word 21:59 < jokeefe> ok, motion to adjoun 21:59 < jokeefe> 2nd? 21:59 < srevilak> second 22:00 < jokeefe> all in favor? 22:00 < igel> wed paper_waves? 22:00 < jokeefe> aye 6-9 22:00 < igel> yaar 22:00 < BenC> night all 22:00 < jokeefe> & aye 22:00 < jokeefe> stay cool folks 22:00 < igel> chevere 22:01 < bestpiggy> night all 22:01 < paper_waves> peace 22:01 < igel> viva cuba 22:01 < jokeefe> srevilak, you got the notes? 22:01 < srevilak> sure 22:02 < noe> night 22:02 < jokeefe> thank you, we really should have noe do them ;-)
