Mini-calendar of upcoming events (to hand out at piratecon) might be nice to have 21:22 < jokeefe> agreed. 21:22 < jokeefe> Is Freedom Rally paid for? 21:22 < jokeefe> not yet is ok 21:22 < srevilak> jokeefe: yes, check sent to consession ltd on 3/2 21:23 < jokeefe> the die is cast ;-) 21:24 < jokeefe> same thing goes for it as pride: get word out so people can sign up 21:25 < jokeefe> any other events we should be at? 21:26 < srevilak> I'm sure there are, but the ones on our immediate list make a good start :) 21:26 < jokeefe> tis true 21:26 < jokeefe> speak of 21:27 < srevilak> A group met on Wed @ Arlington St. Church to work on contingency plans for Peace parade cancellation 21:27 < srevilak> anyone know what became of that? 21:27 < jokeefe> haven’t heard 21:27 < jokeefe> PirateCon 2015 - program update 21:28 < srevilak> Next officers meeting, can do a workshop on setting up civi events :) 21:28 < jokeefe> yes, maybe make those a tech meeting 21:28 < jokeefe> I have two people for the Reimagining the city, and one person I contacted. may have leads on others for it 21:29 < jokeefe> contacted four to five people for net neutrality, haven’t heard back. will start calling by Monday. 21:29 < srevilak> For Wage inequality, have confirmation from socialist alternative 21:29 < srevilak> no response from MassNOW, 15 Mass, or Dollars and Sense 21:30 < srevilak> planning to try SEIU1199 and Lesley college next 21:30 < jokeefe> lesley college? 21:30 < srevilak> Yes, they did an action re: associate professor pay 21:30 < jokeefe> ok 21:31 < jokeefe> I think I know who you can contact at lesley, but it is probably who you plan to contact 21:31 < jokeefe> followups are in order for the others then 21:31 < srevilak> http://m.cambridge.wickedlocal.com/article/20150305/NEWS/150308492 21:32 < jokeefe> good 21:32 < srevilak> jokeefe: yes, keep dialing :) 21:32 < jokeefe> ;-) really need to lock these down this week if possible. 21:32 < srevilak> agreed 21:33 < jokeefe> put a list of tasks at https://masspirates.org/wiki/To_Do_List_%26_Help_We_Need#Pirate_Con 21:33 < jokeefe> what else to add? 21:34 < jokeefe> if we want to have a mailing, we should get that out in the next week or two. 21:34 < jokeefe> snail mailing 21:34 < jokeefe> that is 21:35 < srevilak> Hmm - if the mailing is to promote piratecon, could we get away with postcards? 21:36 < srevilak> (cheaper than letters, and easier to stuff) 21:37 < jokeefe> was thinking of it as our fundraising letter as well 21:37 < srevilak> in that case, probably not postcards 21:38 < jokeefe> calling would be more effective though 21:39 < jokeefe> time to finalize the indiegogo idea 21:43 < jokeefe> Moving on - Materials revamp - https://www.pirateparty.org.uk/campaigns/activists/all-materials 21:43 < jokeefe> need a few smaller designs for events 21:44 * srevilak is impressed with their avid use of free software 21:44 < jokeefe> yes 21:44 < Bluestreak_> Sorry, I have to run, 21:44 < jokeefe> pdfs aren’t editable. not sure about svg 21:44 < jokeefe> I know of two graphic designers. any others? 21:45 < srevilak> svg is editable (inkscape) 21:45 < jokeefe> good 21:45 < jokeefe> need a place for people to easily share designs. 21:46 < jokeefe> blog isn’t it. 21:46 < srevilak> Pedestrian, but https://masspirates.org/wiki/2014_Media_and_Graphics 21:47 < jokeefe> https://owncloud.org/ instance? 21:47 < lisbon> Good idea jokeefe 21:47 < srevilak> https://share.mayfirst.org/ 21:48 < srevilak> (mayfirst's owncloud instance) 21:48 < srevilak> we're members, we can use it 21:49 < srevilak> does pirate council include `graphic design wizard' :) 21:49 < jokeefe> no, not sure it needs one 21:49 < jokeefe> should be many people 21:50 < jokeefe> share.mayfirst.org uses our main login? 21:50 < srevilak> one advantage of wiki over owncloud is wiki's versioning. 21:51 < srevilak> jokeefe: share.mayfirst.org is same as MF/PL control panel login 21:51 < srevilak> we can also add accounts (via control panel) for the purpose of granting share.mayfirst.org access 21:51 < jokeefe> that limits its usability 21:51 < jokeefe> ok 21:51 < jokeefe> git? 21:51 < srevilak> git is another opton 21:51 < jokeefe> wiki can work, haven’t tried loading files into it 21:51 < srevilak> git is another option 21:52 < srevilak> it's pretty easy: click "Upload file", choose file 21:52 < srevilak> hi Techrev 21:52 < jokeefe> well lets try what we can and see how it works 21:52 < jokeefe> ahoy Techrev 21:53 < Techrev> Hello 21:53 < lisbon> ahoy 21:53 < jokeefe> on other news found this - http://ballot-access.org/2015/03/12/massachusetts-bill-to-combine-presidential-primary-with-primary-for-other-office-and-hold-it-in-june/ 21:54 < srevilak> That's a pretty reasonable thing to do 21:54 < jokeefe> as long as it doesn’t change our dates it looks fine, though I doubt it does that. need to look at the text 21:55 < srevilak> Now, if we could only get open primaries ... 21:55 < jokeefe> June seems pretty late if you want to have influence in the primaries 21:56 < jokeefe> be careful what you wish for, it could get us Top Two 21:56 < jokeefe> <sarcasm>yay, fewer choices</sarcasm> 21:57 < jokeefe> ok, we are pretty much at time 21:57 < srevilak> Actually, I meant "open" as in "you can pick any party ticket to vote" 21:57 < jokeefe> Agreed 21:57 < jokeefe> anything folks want to add? 21:58 < lisbon> nope, not much this week 21:58 < Kendra> I will look at the list and see if I can help with anything for Pirate Con. Did you get a table at Libre Planet? 21:58 < jokeefe> not this year 21:58 < jokeefe> good luck with classes, lisbon 21:59 < lisbon> thanks 21:59 < jokeefe> thanks, Kendra 22:00 < jokeefe> well then, motion to adjourn? 22:00 < lisbon> Shall we vote to close? 22:00 < srevilak> second 22:00 < jokeefe> all in favor? 22:00 < srevilak> aye 22:00 < lisbon> aye 22:00 < Kendra> aye 22:00 < Kendra> nite 22:01 < lisbon> bye :)
