21:20 < jokeefe> thanks, Kendra, I started a blog post on it from some
        of the text I put in the last group email.  Feel free to use it.
21:21 < r0b> Cool, ok
21:22 < Bluestreak> The 21st would be a good date to have the newsletter
21:22 < r0b> Is IDs on the agenda?
21:22 < Bluestreak> and the 22
21:22 < Bluestreak> yes, pls id
21:22 < jokeefe> no we just start it that way as a convention, r0b
21:22 < Bluestreak> Anarchist book fair would be a good place to
        distrubute news letter
21:22 < Bluestreak> my bad
21:22 < Bluestreak> id if you like
21:23 < Kendra> Yeah it is almost done, so that is a good idea
21:23 < Bluestreak> Awesome.
21:23 < Bluestreak> Can’t wait to read it.
21:23 < r0b> Oh, like non-username names?
21:23 < r0b> My real name is Rob
21:23 < jokeefe> How many pages is it, Kendra?
21:24 < jokeefe> Also, do we have pdfs/images of the zine Halley put
21:24 < Kendra> It was about 16, but a lot of stuff can be edited down
        or removed if it is dated
21:24 < Kendra> So four page stapled maybe
21:24 < jokeefe> That would be good, thanks
21:25 < Kendra> We could use more pictures if people want to send me any
21:26 < Bluestreak> Like of pirates n stuff?
21:26 < jokeefe> Bunch at
21:26 < jokeefe> on blog
21:26 < Kendra> Event pics, like the Doctorow, but other clip art is
        good if relevant
21:27 < Kendra> Thanks jamie, I;ll look there
21:27 < jokeefe> Might be easier if you emailed out what you would like
        to include
21:28 < Kendra> If the file size is an issue again, i can do google docs
        or up load it to the wiki
21:29 < Kendra> Before this weekend i can get another final draft
21:29 < Bluestreak> What Jamie said.
21:29 < Kendra> Then we can look at that and offer edit suggestions
21:29 < Bluestreak> Set up “MeetUp”s for the next two IPMs
21:29 < jokeefe> We need people who are good with video editing, graphic
        design, writing, etc. if you have any recommendations
21:30 < jokeefe> thanks, Bluestreak
21:30 < Bluestreak> Email me all the titles of the articles and I will
        email you pics
21:31 < Bluestreak> I am big on picd
21:31 < Bluestreak> s
21:31 < jokeefe> What are people’s thoughts about how much time to put
        into TPP/TiSA/etc?  Looks like the Mass. delegation is against them,
        and while getting the rest of New England against it is good, we have
        more things we need to do close to home
21:33 < srevilak> If the bulk of MA delegation opposses TPP, et al,
        then perhaps good to focus on other priorities
21:33 < Kendra> Probably should generate a statement about our stance
        and maybe put on the blog, but leave  it at that
21:33 < Bluestreak> What can be done to oppose them locally?
21:34 < igel> mail reps
21:34 < igel> call reps
21:34 < igel> create a modem bank/pool.. hmm
21:35 < Kendra> being a more conscious consumer and not patronizing
        sponsors, if that is at all possible
21:35 < jokeefe> A last statement on the proposed treaties would be
        fine, Kendra
21:39 < jokeefe> I don’t have any further updates.  Does anyone else?
21:40 < Bluestreak> I have pie
21:41 < Bluestreak> :-)
21:41 < r0b> Is it one of those infinite non-repeating pies, or the
        finite kind?
21:41 < Kendra> what flavor?
21:43 < Bluestreak> apple
21:44 < jokeefe> well if there is nothing else …
21:46 < Bluestreak> How
21:46 < Bluestreak> is the
21:46 < Bluestreak> CCTV thing going?
21:47 < jokeefe> haven’t made any progress
21:49 < jokeefe> well if there isn’t anything else then suggest
        we adjourn.  2nd?
21:49 < srevilak> second
21:50 < jokeefe> all in favor?
21:50 < srevilak> aye
21:50 < igel> aye
21:50 < jokeefe> aye
21:51 < jokeefe> srevilak, you have the transcript?
21:51 < srevilak> jokeefe: got it
21:51 < jokeefe> thank you
