[9:27pm] Bluestreak: LIFE!
[9:27pm] Bluestreak: So do your bet to support it!
[9:27pm] Bluestreak: And let's move on, shall we?
[9:28pm] Bluestreak: Sevan is stepping down
[9:28pm] Bluestreak: As College Coordinator
[9:28pm] Bluestreak: This is a VERY important position and we need a replacement to step up!
[9:29pm] Bluestreak: Yes! You want to volunteer, yes?
[9:30pm] srevilak: Sorry.  Stretched pretty thin right now
[9:30pm] Bluestreak: You and EVERYBODY ELSE!
[9:30pm] Igel: i don't fully understand (and 0 experience)
[9:30pm] Kendra: I am kind of over my head with stuff at the moment.  Any chance this position could be reduced to smaller bites as in choosing a couple of schools per quarter and targeting them?
[9:30pm] Bluestreak: No experience? NO PROBLEM!
[9:31pm] jokeefe: back
[9:31pm] Joe joined the chat room.
[9:31pm] Bluestreak: Hey Joeda man!~
[9:31pm] Joe: greetings everyone
[9:31pm] Bluestreak: We have moved on to Sevan stepping down, sir
[9:31pm] jokeefe: yes
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: *maybe*
[9:32pm] Igel: i dont know what to say, i don't know what you are asking for
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: Just *maybe*
[9:32pm] jokeefe: lgel, we have two people who want to help with the Pirates on their campuses.  We need someone who can keep in touch with them to setup events.
[9:32pm] Kendra: We really need to be upfront and realsitic about the time involved and the effort involved.  It is better to hit fewer schools successfully than blanket many and come across as an unorganized hot mess.
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: Jason can take over when the Nutley job ends
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: Jason thinks it's an awesome idea
[9:32pm] jokeefe: the first thing we are asking them to do is setup a space for a crypto party and put up posters
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: He just ahsnt' had the time
[9:32pm] Bluestreak:
[9:32pm] jokeefe: agreed, Kendra
[9:33pm] jokeefe: we have two coordinators so working with them shouldn't be taxing
[9:33pm] jokeefe: two college students to be clear
[9:33pm] Igel: where is oneorious
[9:33pm] Kendra: Do we have a next crypto party scheduled on a specific campus?
[9:34pm] Bluestreak: Yes where is oneorious?
[9:34pm] jokeefe: would be nice to have the Nov. at a college
[9:34pm] jokeefe: lgel, Northeastern is one
[9:34pm] Igel: he/she said they were west mass.. and -volenteered- to inquire about this..
[9:35pm] Igel: i too said i can look at the shared data (seperately) but said it was beyond my expertise re: time spent, return of time invested, outreach etc..
[9:35pm] Kendra: I was just looking at a Tufts online lecture on the Transition movement and they seem to have a nice community of support over there.  I would not know who to contact however, maybe soemone in the  Journalism or Comp Sci departments.  Plus it is near where I live.
[9:36pm] jokeefe: cannot hurt Kendra, but it immediate focus should be on the folks who say they want to help.
[9:36pm] Igel: neu is wicked nice.
[9:37pm] Kendra: I can add contacts in those departments to the online Mass Student Organizations list we started on Rise Up.
[9:38pm] jokeefe: cool
[9:38pm] Igel: well
[9:39pm] Bluestreak: BRB
[9:40pm] jokeefe: lgel, you interested?
[9:40pm] Igel: i have a massive deadline
[9:40pm] Igel: but i feel that if we present correctly
[9:41pm] Igel: we aught to have double downed on the cryptoparty + place it is hosted at...
[9:42pm] jokeefe: asked Sevan to stay on to setup 1st crypto party, so hopefully that will make things easier.
[9:44pm] jokeefe: Next, two related things - Phone banking? & Halloween fundraiser - suggest putting them off
[9:44pm] jokeefe: comments?
[9:44pm] srevilak: no objections
[9:45pm] Kendra: No objections, it sounds like we all have a lot going on.
[9:46pm] jokeefe: yeah
[9:46pm] Kendra: Just a question on the phone banking.  Is our goal to cold call people to spread the MPP message or to specifically get the word out about joe running for office.  I was confused about it.
[9:47pm] srevilak: Kendra: I think phonebanking for $$
[9:47pm] jokeefe: yes, and to get them involved
[9:48pm] Igel: do we accept bitcoin?
[9:48pm] jokeefe: need to ask OCPF
[9:49pm] srevilak: that one's on me
[9:49pm] srevilak: will check
[9:49pm] jokeefe: thank you
[9:50pm] jokeefe: so any opposed to finding other times for the fundraiser/calls?
[9:51pm] srevilak: not opposed
[9:53pm] Bluestreak: Sry back
