Probably Big Blue Button 21:15 < Joe> We should include live polls if possible. 21:16 < srevilak> In a pinch, I have (shame) a zoom account 21:16 <~jokeefe> we can do that 21:16 <~jokeefe> thanks, srevilak 21:16 < Joe> Ty srevilak 21:17 < srevilak> I've missed the last couple of pirate moots. What did we typically have for agenda? 21:17 < Joe> I am not as familiar with big blue and its features 21:17 <~jokeefe> We have the democracy meeting this Saturday. 21:17 <~jokeefe> We used big blue button for the conference 21:18 < Joe> It seemed to work. Which one is better? 21:19 <~jokeefe> Big blue button was pretty good 21:19 <~jokeefe> Speaking of conference, when should we host the next one? 21:20 < srevilak> This could be poll question for the moot 21:20 < Joe> Spring, right before school ends so we can hit up the colleges with law departments. 21:20 < srevilak> Since it's 2022, I hope we could get some candidates to run this year 21:21 < Joe> And political science majors 21:21 < Joe> I will be willing to run this year btw. Though I still need to be local. 21:22 <~jokeefe> agreed. 21:23 < Joe> Wanted to either go city trustee or some level of rep 21:23 < srevilak> Cool! 21:24 < Joe> The local library trustee really interested me. 21:25 <~jokeefe> signature gathering is mid Feb to May 21:26 < Joe> But on that note. We have most of the issues hammered out with platform and the like. Is there anything else we would need other than campaigning for change? 21:27 <~jokeefe> Expect so. We can discuss it at the moot 21:28 < Joe> What is the high level of office we could expect to obtain in office in MA? 21:28 < Joe> That is a moot question 21:28 < Joe> Why you should run. 21:28 <~jokeefe> Focus would be on State Rep/Senate or town offices. 21:30 < Joe> Would you be willing to help me set up a campaign page? 21:30 <~jokeefe> Sure 21:31 <~jokeefe> Conference survey would also be good for those who cannot attend on the 22nd 21:32 < Joe> Leave the survey open for a few days then? 21:33 <~jokeefe> oh sure. 21:35 <~jokeefe> Video Newsletter/Podcast 21:35 <~jokeefe> Good for sunday? 21:36 < Joe> I am 21:36 < srevilak> yes 21:36 < Joe> Sorry I have still been on my phone. My current location is not conductive for proper setup yet 21:37 < Joe> My house should be rebuilt by June so I can have a studio then. I can alo 21:37 < srevilak> I think the phone has been working fine 21:37 < Joe> Also work on my office. 21:38 <~jokeefe> agreed. 21:38 <~jokeefe> just good everyone can make it 21:38 < Joe> Itworks but is very frustrating on my end. 21:39 < Joe> Still, that hard drive is good, ty jokeefe 21:39 <~jokeefe> glad it helps 21:40 <~jokeefe> That is all I have for now.
