[21:10] <jokeefe> Schedule either a full state or local (Somerville) meeting before the end of June?
[21:11] <jokeefe> Bluelustreak pointed out we haven't had a social/inperson meeting in a while
[21:11] <jokeefe> having one in June would be good
[21:11] <Kendra> I say do the full state.
[21:11] <Bluelustreak> I have fairly competent activist that is new to the area
[21:11] <srevilak> How about the weekend of June 21-22

[21:12] <Bluelustreak> Um... Sunday?
[21:12] <srevilak> Bluelustreak: Saturday the 21st or Sunday the 22nd
[21:13] <Bluelustreak> If Saturday Garret can come
[21:13] <Bluelustreak> usually.

[21:15] <Bluelustreak> can we vote time?

[21:15] <Bluelustreak> Sure OK
[21:16] <srevilak> I'm okay with Sat June 21 2-4pm
[21:16] <Bluelustreak> I will tell Garret and Harrison, and Al Willis, who has expressed an interest
[21:16] <Bluelustreak> Aye
[21:16] <jokeefe> Aye
[21:16] <jokeefe> thank you, Bluelustreak
[21:16] <srevilak> Presume the usual Pizzaria Regina?
[21:16] <Bluelustreak> Putting it on my calendar
[21:16] <jokeefe> aye
[21:16] <Bluelustreak> Aye
[21:17] <jokeefe> Any opposed?
[21:17] <Kendra> I would like to attend, but will not be there yet, but all in favor.

[21:17] <srevilak> aye
[21:18] <jokeefe> ok, now motion carries
[21:18] <jokeefe> Next - Can we do something for June 5th Reset the Net?
[21:18] <jokeefe> Evan suggested a cryptoparty, can help with getting the word out
[21:19] <jokeefe> On June 5th.
[21:19] <srevilak> I liked the idea of doing a cryptoparty/keysigning @ e5
[21:19] <srevilak> E5's calendar seems to be open that evening
[21:20] <jokeefe> Do you have time to do it, srevilak?
[21:20] <Bluelustreak> I can attend, if needed.
[21:20] <srevilak> jokeefe: I can do it
[21:20] <Bluelustreak> Can't be there before 7, though.
[21:20] <srevilak> Ditto - I'd also ask for a 7pm start time.  Maybe 7 -- 8:30 or 9?
[21:21] <jokeefe> if you are ok wth it and running it, then it goes to your schedule
[21:22] <jokeefe> June 5th, e5, 7-8:30/9, PGP/Email/Keysigning Cryptoparty
[21:22] <srevilak> I'd say keysigning.  
[21:22] <srevilak> For 90 minutes, might be easier to talk about pervasive surveillance
[21:23] <jokeefe> whatever you want to call it.  srevilak, you want to tell Evan the good news?
[21:23] <srevilak> (e.g., tell people all the ways they're being tracked)
[21:23] <srevilak> jokeefe: I can tell evan
[21:23] <jokeefe> thanks
[21:23] <Bluelustreak> I thought this was about net neutrality
[21:23]  * srevilak switches windows to make E5 reservation
[21:23] <Bluelustreak> Link pls
[21:23] <srevilak>
[21:24] <jokeefe> NSA & spying
[21:24] <Bluelustreak> Oh wait do I just show up at e5?
[21:24] <jokeefe> yes
[21:24] <jokeefe> srevilak, would you be able to put out the blog post?
[21:24] <Bluelustreak> Is there a reset the net event about NN?
[21:25] <jokeefe> don't know of one
[21:25] <srevilak> jokeefe: sure
[21:25] <jokeefe> thank you
[21:26] <jokeefe> Tasks
[21:26] <jokeefe> 1. Discuss DMC planning. Conference call was 5/29 @ noon. (Also: Please sign up to the DMC planning email list, especially: Mars needs women!)
[21:26] <jokeefe> Bluelustreak, would you talk about it?
[21:26] <Bluelustreak> *looks for Noe*
[21:26] <Bluelustreak> Specifically?
[21:26] <Bluelustreak> The specifics of the tracks were not discussed
[21:27] <jokeefe> have a date?
[21:27] <Bluelustreak> Sort of
[21:27] <Bluelustreak> one sec
[21:27] <Bluelustreak> They have Friday the 24th reserved at Lesley
[21:28] <Bluelustreak> But they are waiting for work from Roxbury...
[21:28] <Bluelustreak> BCC?
[21:28] <Bluelustreak> Sorry Al never posted the notes
[21:28] <Bluelustreak> And I tried to remember details but I had a bit of a headache
[21:28] <jokeefe> Two tracks are "Tools to protect your privacy" and "Women and technology"?
[21:29] <jokeefe> hope your head is feeling better, Bluelustreak
[21:29] <Bluelustreak> Well after they have the venue settled they will be discussing the specifics of the tracks
[21:29] <Bluelustreak> right now the women thing...
[21:29] <Bluelustreak> hasn't even got a subcommitte yet
[21:30] <Bluelustreak> Sarah will be taking the lead with myself and Deb Nichols but....
[21:30] <Bluelustreak> WE WANT ALL WOMEN
[21:30] <Bluelustreak> So was really hoping to see Noe
[21:30] <Bluelustreak> I will reach out to her by email.
[21:30] <Bluelustreak> As for Privacy tools track
[21:31] <Bluelustreak> Once they have the venue issues ironed out, we will need to sit down with them by phone IRC or in person
[21:31] <Bluelustreak> So not for two weeks but soon after... OK?
[21:31] <jokeefe> when is the next meeting?
[21:32] <Bluelustreak> DMC? Next Th @ Noon
[21:32] <jokeefe> ok
[21:32] <Bluelustreak> I will be there.
[21:32] <jokeefe> ok to advertise that me are looking for people to help?
[21:32] <Bluelustreak> YES PLEASE

[21:33] <jokeefe> Anything about the DMC?
[21:33] <Bluelustreak> ?
[21:33] <Bluelustreak> else?
[21:33] <jokeefe> yes, else, missed the word
[21:33] <Bluelustreak> The theme is "Express yourself"
[21:34] <Bluelustreak> Subtitle: Safely or without fear (of reprisal)
[21:34] <srevilak> DMC notes:
[21:34] <jokeefe> cool
[21:34] <Bluelustreak> Where did you find that?
[21:34] <Bluelustreak> Please?
[21:35] <Bluelustreak> Called Al personally got no reply
[21:35] <srevilak> Bluelustreak: Al sent via email to
[21:35] <Bluelustreak> Man I looked for that!
[21:35] <Bluelustreak> Too many inboxes in my gmail
[21:36] <Bluelustreak> Pirate activists' emails have shifted themselves from "forums" to "Promotions"
[21:36] <Bluelustreak> And I don't even know why or have time to figure out how to change it
[21:36] <Bluelustreak> (Thanks)
[21:37] <Bluelustreak> Al seemed eager to hear from Jamie...
[21:37] <Bluelustreak> BTW
[21:37] <jokeefe> Would need to look at your settings to figure it out.
[21:37] <Bluelustreak> You have time to reach out to him
[21:37] <jokeefe> Will do.  Please let me invite him to our upcoming events.
[21:38] <jokeefe> Moving on to "Lucia and Jason editing Joe's local press release. Send out Friday or wait until Monday?"
[21:38] <Bluelustreak> OK Jason took pity on me.
[21:38] <Bluelustreak> When I told him I was overwhelmed and submitted something after all.
[21:39] <jokeefe> so the press release is done?
[21:39] <Bluelustreak> Sign off on it, come up with something else, or take mine as it was originally written
[21:39] <jokeefe> and sent?
[21:39] <Bluelustreak> One sec I will send what I just got from Jason to the list
[21:40] <Bluelustreak> Sent
[21:41] <jokeefe> great
[21:41] <jokeefe> My only suggestion on timing is to send it so they have it in enough time before the deadline for their issue.
[21:41] <Bluelustreak> So Friday?
[21:41] <Bluelustreak> For Monday?
[21:41] <Bluelustreak> Oh you like it. Great
[21:42] <Bluelustreak> Make sure you thank him
[21:43] <jokeefe> Re: dates - Depends on when the reporters have to submit their articles.  Only way to know is to ask them.
[21:43] <Bluelustreak> I will get right on it in the AM
[21:44] <jokeefe> Anything else on press releases?
[21:44] <Bluelustreak> I have determined which papers cover our area.
[21:44] <Bluelustreak> Just have to reach out to them
