[9:27pm] Bluestreak: igel?
[9:27pm] Igel: i am trying to find DMC
[9:27pm] srevilak: We should be able to discuss saturday, if not before
[9:28pm] Bluestreak: Good point
[9:28pm] jokeefe: thanks
[9:28pm] jokeefe: may be able to do a crypto party on Sunday, too.
[9:28pm] Bluestreak: Um... Oct 26?
[9:29pm] jokeefe: I believe so.
[9:29pm] jokeefe: pretty certain
[9:29pm] Igel: OK i re-read
[9:30pm] jokeefe: Halloween Fundraiser - any leads on a place?
[9:30pm] srevilak: how big is our DMC cryptoparty timeslot?
[9:30pm] jokeefe: 1.5 on Sat.
[9:30pm] jokeefe: potentially more on Sunday.
[9:30pm] srevilak: kthx.  Important consideration for choosing topics
[9:31pm] Bluestreak: K is working on venue. Jason and I are recruiting talent.
[9:31pm] Bluestreak: Reached out to Chance
[9:31pm] jokeefe: program - http://digitalmediaconference.org/2013/program
[9:31pm] Bluestreak: Get some politically relevant rap
[9:32pm] Kendra: Angie and Sarah have fallen off the radar since last weekend.  I am still trying to get a hold of the manager over at Industry Labs and looking at some other spots.  It might be  there or E5 (which is very small) Or maybe somewhere else. 
[9:32pm] Kendra: Open to suggestions at this point.
[9:32pm] Igel: thanks /me pass it on
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: How samll is very small?
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: e5 is a good lcation
[9:32pm] jokeefe: e5 too small?
[9:32pm] Bluestreak: What will our cover be?
[9:33pm] Kendra: I think you can have a decent event if people are coming and going.  It's not like it's a keg party.
[9:33pm] Bluestreak: 10 bucks donation?
[9:33pm] Kendra: I would suggest a sliding scale of 10-20
[9:33pm] Bluestreak: Can we serve alcohol at e5?
[9:33pm] Bluestreak: What is the scope of this event?
[9:34pm] jokeefe: party
[9:34pm] jokeefe: costume
[9:34pm] Igel: Ahh
[9:34pm] Kendra: Yes, no problem, which is why it is preferable.  The people at Industry Labs were a little uptight last week and the space is not right on the SUbway line.  E5 is much easier to get I imagine.
[9:34pm] Igel: In somerville Kendra ?
[9:34pm] Bluestreak: Sprouts?
[9:34pm] Bluestreak: Very halloween party vibe there
[9:34pm] Bluestreak: with the courtyard
[9:34pm] jokeefe: true
[9:35pm] jokeefe: will ask
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: OK well tick tock
[9:35pm] Kendra: E5 is at Park Street next to the Orpheum.  Industry Labs are in Inman SQ in Cambridge.  I live in Arlington and I like Sprouts, we could deck it out.
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: very last minute
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: ppl laready have plans
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: I like Sprouts
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: Parking
[9:35pm] Kendra: People already have Halloween nailed down?
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: better than e5 parking
[9:35pm] Bluestreak: This time of year? toads
[9:35pm] Kendra: Probably can fit more people and have more fun at Sprouts.
[9:36pm] Bluestreak: Agreed
[9:36pm] jokeefe: what day?
[9:36pm] Kendra: Is it expensive to get SProuts?  Do they charge a lot?
[9:36pm] Bluestreak: Good question
[9:36pm] Bluestreak: Halloween proper is...
[9:36pm] Bluestreak: A Thurs
[9:36pm] jokeefe: not expensive, but the down stairs has machine tools
[9:36pm] Kendra: Halloween is on a Thursday, so the weekend before or after Friday or Saturday might work.
[9:37pm] Bluestreak: AFTER
[9:37pm] Kendra: No one will care if there are music and drinks.
[9:37pm] Bluestreak: }less likely to have ppl booked already
[9:37pm] Kendra: I vote Sprouts first, E5 Second, Industry labs 3rd.
[9:37pm] Bluestreak: FYI 11/5 is million mask march
[9:38pm] Bluestreak: 2nd K
[9:38pm] Bluestreak: Jamie did you say you will look into Sprouts?
[9:38pm] Bluestreak: Or are you delegating?
[9:38pm] jokeefe: Happy to delegate
[9:38pm] Kendra: I have time tomorrowto check on Sprouts  if someone can give me contact info.
[9:38pm] Bluestreak: LOL happy to
[9:39pm] Bluestreak: James can do that much!
[9:39pm] jokeefe: will send you contact info
[9:39pm] Bluestreak: Since it's Tally Fox that is making fundraising so necessary all I have to say is the Houshes had better be there!
[9:39pm] Bluestreak: Hmph
[9:40pm] Bluestreak: (Jamie <3 Can you work on them?)
[9:40pm] jokeefe: will ask
[9:40pm] Bluestreak: TY
[9:42pm] Kendra: Just and FYI, if Tally Fox is expensive, here is a free group organizing thing : https://trello.com/
[9:42pm] Bluestreak: Good luck with that.
[9:42pm] jokeefe: thanks, Kendra
[9:42pm] Bluestreak: Not going to tell Gregg no Tally Fox
[9:43pm] jokeefe: Moving on to Future Events
[9:43pm] jokeefe: black_van contacted folks about running College Cryptoparties
[9:44pm] Kendra: Is he getting some positive feedback?
[9:44pm] srevilak: Re College Cryptoparties.  Harvard had a small crowd, but they were receptive.  Took to the technology.
[9:44pm] jokeefe: Would be good to have Candidate & Activist Trainings esp. Conflict resolution, not feeding trolls, recognizing trolls, damage control
[9:45pm] Bluestreak: I could talk FROM EXPERIENCE. (Don't be like me!)
[9:45pm] Bluestreak:
[9:45pm] srevilak: what happened?
[9:45pm] Bluestreak: I get keyed up
[9:45pm] Kendra: YEah, I talked to the guy at FS event on Saturday and did not realize he was problematic.  But I swear, as hard as it is, ignore negative behavior and reward positive behavior.
[9:45pm] jokeefe: always important to stay calm
[9:45pm] Bluestreak: yes
[9:46pm] jokeefe: aye, Jendra!
[9:46pm] Bluestreak:  But getting excited gets others excited.
[9:46pm] jokeefe: aye, Kendra!
[9:46pm] Bluestreak: Balance is key
[9:46pm] jokeefe: typo, danq
[9:46pm] Kendra: You have toa ctively decide not to care.  And yes it is hard and why I don't have a huge online presence.  A lot of haters out there.
[9:46pm] Bluestreak: Too calm is bland
[9:46pm] Bluestreak: You ALSO lose people
[9:46pm] jokeefe: best not to be rash
[9:46pm] Kendra: Drama is entertaining.
[9:46pm] Bluestreak: And always, the more successful you become the more haters you will attract
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: Law of the jungle
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: LOL
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: Any one can have a bad day
[9:47pm] srevilak: For the sake of illustration, was there an online exchange we can read?
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: ]Damage control is important
[9:47pm] jokeefe: I think the German Pirates would prefer to have had less drama
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: LOL
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: NO!
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: Yeah if you dont SHARE!
[9:47pm] Kendra: But seriously, how do you strike a balance between having a personality, that some people might not enjoy, and keeping things interesting?
[9:47pm] Bluestreak: I will show you.
[9:48pm] Bluestreak: Wait...
[9:48pm] Bluestreak: jokeefe what say YOU?
[9:48pm] srevilak: Sometimes it good to review this stuff, for the sake of reflecting how it might have been handled differently
[9:48pm] jokeefe: I think we should put a training and guidelines
[9:48pm] jokeefe: Swarmwise does have suggestions on this topic
[9:48pm] srevilak: jokeefe: fair enough
[9:48pm] Kendra: Lucia can you show Steve that wacky blog posting with the guy?
[9:49pm] Bluestreak: I was waiting to see what jokeefe thought of sharing
[9:49pm] Bluestreak: ...
[9:49pm] Kendra: Maybe more privately.
[9:50pm] jokeefe: Save it for the in-person meeting
[9:50pm] Bluestreak: OK. Steve we will discuss it then!
[9:50pm] srevilak: Bluestreak: ok
[9:51pm] srevilak: [ot] amicus brief from Kit: http://cyberlawclinic.berkman.harvard.edu/2013/09/23/new-brief-argues-for-warrant-requirement-to-obtain-cell-phone-location-data/
[9:51pm] Bluestreak: +1
[9:52pm] jokeefe: cool
[9:52pm] srevilak: I may go to hearing on October 10.
[9:53pm] srevilak: anyway, sorry for tangent
[9:53pm] jokeefe: which hearing?
[9:53pm] Bluestreak: The thing he just posted?
[9:54pm] srevilak: yes.  Fifth paragraph
[9:54pm] kit joined the chat room.
[9:54pm] jokeefe: ah
[9:54pm] Bluestreak: Speak of the devil
[9:54pm] kit: (ahoy all)
[9:54pm] Garret: NSA agent
[9:54pm] kit: hmmm?
[9:54pm] srevilak: hi kit.  Just talking about your amicus
[9:54pm] Garret: heard the name, jumped in
[9:54pm] Garret: i know how it works
[9:54pm] Garret:
[9:54pm] jokeefe: hi kit
[9:54pm] kit: heh
[9:54pm] Bluestreak:
[9:54pm] Bluestreak: 5 minute warning...
[9:54pm] kit: actually just came from hearing on cameras (& dinner after)
[9:55pm] Bluestreak: Oh good!
[9:55pm] jokeefe: how was it?
[9:55pm] jokeefe: saw some tweets on it
[9:55pm] Bluestreak: Bryan went to that too, TYVM for goint
[9:55pm] kit: I was there for the prepared statements and the first couple of citizen comments (including mine!) before I had to go. ACLU did a good job (of course). first three citizens were all anti-camera
[9:56pm] Bluestreak: Was Alex Marthews there?
[9:56pm] Bluestreak: He has totally stepped up with supprort of our 10/4 event
[9:56pm] kit: lots of concern about the chilling effect on free speech, the lack of outside oversight in the proposed guidelines, and some shiftiness about whether we were talking about just the six existing (inactive) cameras or additional cameras to be funded with tax $
[9:56pm] Bluestreak: Even wrote a statement and has a contact at the UK consulate
[9:57pm] kit: yes, Alex was there and spoke (third citizen commenter)
[9:57pm] Bluestreak: Mostly ppl against right?
[9:57pm] kit: first three were all against, then I had to go
[9:57pm] kit: police were advocating for it based on (1) claims it deters crime and (2) need to monitor traffic for emergency situations
[9:58pm] Bluestreak: Makes their job easier.
[9:58pm] js0000: makes police state easier
[9:58pm] kit: they wrote guidelines saying they won't use it to spy on protest or minorities, and that they have to tell the city council if they upgrade them to include biometrics
[9:58pm] Bluestreak: As in jut bust ppl in line of sight rather than doing real policing
[9:58pm] Bluestreak: FACE ID?
[9:58pm] Bluestreak: FACE ID seriously?
[9:59pm] js0000: law enforcement has a bad record of following their own guidelines
[9:59pm] Bluestreak: +1
[9:59pm] jokeefe: aye, js0000
[9:59pm] kit: it's phrased in the guidelines to give the impression that biometrics are off-limits, but actually all it says is they have to inform the city council if they start doing that. this is a real foot-in-the-door type moment for the cameras
[10:00pm] Bluestreak: Groan
[10:00pm] kit: (which we and ACLU said)
[10:00pm] js0000: thx for showin up and speakin out
[10:00pm] Kendra: I am going tomorrow to make a quick buck having my voic e recorded for a voice recognition software company in Somerville.  They track your face, voice and weirdly enough, your gait. .
[10:00pm] js0000: gaits are very distinctive
[10:00pm] kit: evidently there are six cameras that were paid for by DHS but the city council ordered the police not to turn them on. so they've been there since 2009 but allegedly off
[10:00pm] js0000: as anyone with poor vision knows from experience
[10:00pm] Bluestreak: Someone get Kendra another JOB!
[10:01pm] kit: also they're all wireless and use some kind of proprietary motorola security. I don't have more detail but would love to know if they're really secure or can be hacked for private spying
[10:01pm] js0000: anything can be hacked
[10:01pm] Bluestreak: Get out yer gadget Capn
[10:01pm] js0000: but it might not be worth the effort
[10:02pm] kit: yeah, what I really mean is "if there are documented security problems that would help kill the camera plan"
[10:02pm] js0000: haha
[10:02pm] Kendra: I think they can track a lot of people , but managing the data and making it truly useful is the issue.  The whole surveillance thing is about capitalism and funding these firms that sell all the gadgets.
[10:03pm] Bluestreak: That and paranoia
[10:03pm] js0000: yes, i just see a police state in my future and am not happy
[10:03pm] kit: only other interesting fact I have to report is that the room was packed. it's not a large room, but it was standing room only. Maybe fifty to sixty people?
[10:03pm] jokeefe: great!
[10:03pm] Bluestreak: AS IT SHOULD BE1
[10:03pm] Bluestreak: !
[10:04pm] jokeefe: we are at an hour.  continue or call it a night?
[10:04pm] Kendra: It is galling to pay taxes to be spied on at every turn.  Think about all the cameras you can't see or locate.
[10:04pm] Bluestreak: I feel as though we have covered a lot already
[10:04pm] jokeefe: no taxation without privacy
[10:05pm] Bluestreak: Just dont pay taxes
[10:05pm] Bluestreak:
