[9:06pm] noe: March went well, seemed smaller than last year [9:06pm] noe: but I think it was organized better this year? we started at the State House instead of at Park Street so it felt less madhouse-y and more geared towards legislation [9:06pm] Bluestreak: Our presence was bigger than ever [9:06pm] jokeefe: better organized than 2 years ago [9:07pm] noe: i saw more newbies at this one and met a lot of people who were at their very first march/protest [9:07pm] jokeefe: ++ [9:07pm] Bluestreak: The winter depressed a lot of ppl I thinl [9:08pm] noe: i'm surprised only the greens showed besides us [9:08pm] Bluestreak: Getting back up to speed will take a few weels [9:08pm] igel: hrm [9:08pm] Bluestreak: hrm [9:09pm] noe: halley's zines were great to hand out [9:09pm] Bluestreak: YES [9:09pm] Bluestreak: Agreed [9:09pm] Bluestreak: ++ [9:09pm] igel: would think it would be bigger than last, re: tpp [9:09pm] noe: and we had buttons and such, so we had things to talk about besides the march itself [9:10pm] jokeefe: Jamie made a pdf of her cryptoparty comic [9:10pm] jokeefe: buttons!

[9:10pm] Bluestreak: Would like to make some for left forum but.... [9:11pm] noe: did we already review the Parts and Crafts Cryptoparty on the 21st?

[9:17pm] jokeefe: noe, when is the next Pirate show? [9:19pm] jokeefe: like that they put this up - [9:19pm] noe: probably in two weeks, more than likely, i'll edit it soon-ish, still have footage from PirateCon [9:20pm] noe: its also possible that all of our shows will be on the new server for SCATV soon [9:20pm] noe: but i was promised that three weeks ago and still cannot provide links. [9:20pm] jokeefe: thanks for checking on it [9:21pm] jokeefe: noe, would you write a post about what has been done/is available and what is coming up? [9:21pm] noe: will probably be faster to give you shows from a SCATV hard drive to a disk. limitations! [9:21pm] jokeefe: Would anyone like to help noe with the show? [9:22pm] noe: people are . . . but i think summer vacation has hit people with the lazy bug! i know i have been hit hard. [9:22pm] noe: if people have ideas hit me up at noeseek at [9:22pm] Kendra: I'll let you know Noe, I can probably help [9:22pm] noe: most of the ideas have made it to the TV screen, but our cannabis episode is elusive [9:23pm] jokeefe: oh? [9:23pm] noe: yup [9:23pm] Kendra: Has it ever aired? [9:23pm] noe: i think it would be a full hour of patients and parents patients screaming at the department of public health [9:24pm] noe: we've never filmed it, but people keep throwing in ideas [9:24pm] Bluestreak: You want to do something about CPH? [9:24pm] Bluestreak: lack of implementation? [9:25pm] noe: i'd like to find someone who could produce a hopeful thing that isn't too preachy or angry [9:25pm] Bluestreak: Niki, Mike, Frank, they would all be up for that, I think [9:25pm] Bluestreak: They seem to have a relationship with Bob Lobel now [9:25pm] Bluestreak: Maybe they could get him? [9:25pm] noe: or possibly, we could just go film a demonstration/march and use those clips spliced with commentary [9:26pm] Bluestreak: I have guests I am only half paying attention. [9:26pm] noe: that is cool, i like this list, and since we're talking about it, it will be archived so I can poke it later. [9:27pm] noe: should we move on to other things? [9:28pm] jokeefe: folks can contact noe off-line, moving on to Decisions - jamie isn’t here so going to skip Materials - will contact him. [9:28pm] jokeefe: Put together some draft tasks - whatelse to add? [9:31pm] noe: looks comprehensive to me [9:35pm] jokeefe: any other comments? [9:36pm] bestpiggy: the public hearing last night. i think ironically, i was late because of a disable train, and redline delays but there were more people there than i thought. [9:37pm] noe: LOL [9:37pm] jokeefe: thanks. how did it go? did you speak? [9:37pm] noe: happy to hear that T riders are exercising their rights [9:37pm] bestpiggy: what was interesting, i think, is that a few people commented on stopping fare increases, but when they do happen i dont really see people fighting, or trying to fight it which i think is a problem. [9:37pm] bestpiggy: i did not get to speak [9:38pm] bestpiggy: someone also i believe commentation on lack of transportation throughout the state, which I think was important to bring up [9:39pm] Kendra left the chat room. (Quit: Leaving) [9:40pm] bestpiggy: what was surprising to hear that apparently in massachusetts, transportion has increased it green house gas emissions in the past 20 years [9:40pm] noe: [9:40pm] jokeefe: the past budget is interesting - [9:41pm] jokeefe: the share from fares is pretty small [9:43pm] Bluestreak: Speak or not, it was good tha you were there bestpiggy [9:43pm] Bluestreak: thanks [9:44pm] aquaticonions joined the chat room. [9:44pm] Bluestreak: You spoke with your presence. [9:44pm] Bluestreak: ahoy [9:44pm] aquaticonions: ahoy [9:44pm] aquaticonions: sorry I was late [9:44pm] noe: i do wonder what would be an effective means of fighting a fare increase [9:44pm] jokeefe: ahoy aquaticonions [9:44pm] aquaticonions: homework and such [9:44pm] bestpiggy: you're welcome [9:45pm] bestpiggy: noe, i think thats a fair question [9:46pm] noe: i know that numerous protests during the last round of increases did pressure the mbta to keep the increase small, but its difficult since people who use the T may not have any other transport options [9:46pm] noe: or as we discovered this winter, the T may be the only safe option [9:46pm] bestpiggy: if it runs [9:46pm] Wiel_ left the chat room. (Read error: Connection reset by peer) [9:46pm] noe: even if it takes 3 hours, its a safe 3 hours with other people [9:48pm] noe: thank you for going and bringing back insights [9:48pm] bestpiggy: for sure [9:49pm] noe: (we're at 10 til, so we should probably wind down?) [9:49pm] jokeefe: yes, anything anyone wants to bring up? [9:51pm] noe: good luck to our Pirates heading to Left Forum! [9:52pm] noe: I hope to see people at Pride or Dyke March in June if heading into Boston is not frightful. [9:53pm] jokeefe: thanks [9:53pm] jokeefe: looking forward to Pride as well [9:54pm] Bluestreak: (Buttons!) [9:55pm] jokeefe: so we are (nearly) at time, motion to adjourn? [9:56pm] noe: i move to adjourn [9:56pm] noe: second? [9:56pm] jokeefe: 2nd [9:56pm] jokeefe: all in favor? [9:56pm] aquaticonions: aye [9:56pm] noe: aye [9:57pm] jokeefe: aye [9:58pm] Bluestreak: aye [9:58pm] Bluestreak: Talking about Christianity on the porch oops [9:59pm] jokeefe: any opposed? [9:59pm] bestpiggy left the chat room. (Quit: Web client closed) [9:59pm] Bluestreak: Night! [9:59pm] jokeefe: night all!
