She is busy but is interested in participating. Won’t have time to talk until next week. 21:16 < srevilak> Terra, Paul, and the speaker from masscannabis are all flexible on the times. 21:16 < jokeefe> good 21:16 < Kendra> I talked to Ivy and she is not able to attend. It sounds like there were some other people marijuana reform 21:16 < srevilak> No issues for the 2-4:59 range 21:17 < jokeefe> we put the draft schedule up at https://calc.mayfirst.org/mi62xx5j80 21:18 < Bluestreak> Did you get ahold of Lauren? 21:18 < jokeefe> yes 21:18 < Bluestreak> I need to reach out to Mike’s contacts again…. And? 21:18 < jokeefe> she is busy but is interested 21:19 < jokeefe> hope to meet next week 21:19 < Bluestreak> OK well a panel discussion is less confrontational and perhaps prefered 21:19 < jokeefe> so I updated the schedule at https://calc.mayfirst.org/mi62xx5j80 21:19 < Bluestreak> manybe she could be the moderatoe? 21:19 < jokeefe> what would you tweak? 21:21 < Bluestreak> On the schedule? Or with the debate/panel? 21:21 < jokeefe> schedule 21:23 < jokeefe> does it work? 21:24 < Bluestreak> If Lauren can participate, she might prefer the 11 am slot. That’s about it. 21:24 < srevilak> I think the schedule is fine. We have a 30 min block free after Terra's slot, but perhaps that's not a bad thing 21:25 < Bluestreak> Or maybe as late at 2. 21:25 < jokeefe> trying an alternative 21:25 < Bluestreak> I have to present the panel idea to Mike’s contacts, and craft a post for him to share with his followers. 21:26 < Bluestreak> I need to get that done very soon. 21:28 < jokeefe> hmmm… spreadsheet seems locked 21:30 < jokeefe> so I put up a schedule A and B 21:31 < Bluestreak> 8) 21:32 < srevilak> Given the choice between A and B, my personal preference is A 21:33 < jokeefe> what do you like about A 21:33 < jokeefe> ? 21:33 < srevilak> grouping of the party stuff at the beginning 21:34 < srevilak> I think past and current campaigns are a good preface to future organizing 21:35 < srevilak> I also thought that Municipal rights and FOIA laws grouped well together 21:35 < Bluestreak> I think we should address organizing *after* we talk about issues. 21:35 < Bluestreak> Problems>>solutions 21:36 < jokeefe> I created a schedule C 21:36 < jokeefe> :-) 21:37 < srevilak> C is fine too 21:39 < Bluestreak> :-) 21:39 < jokeefe> We could put a half hour organizing discussion after Municipal rights? 21:39 < jokeefe> That we can compress or not as needed 21:40 < Bluestreak> Clue me in pls... 21:40 < Bluestreak> Municipal rights? 21:40 < srevilak> sounds fine to me 21:40 < Bluestreak> Like right to broadband? 21:42 < srevilak> More like http://nhcommunityrights.org/projects/rights-based-ordinances/, I think 21:42 < jokeefe> So C? 21:43 < srevilak> okay with C 21:43 < srevilak> Re: municipal rights, also http://celdf.org/law-library/local-law-center/ 21:43 < Bluestreak> Sure, C 21:44 < jokeefe> C it is.
