21:15 < Joe> Hi Steve
21:15 < srevilak>,_2022_IRC_Meeting
21:15 < srevilak> we were going over conference schedule
21:17 <~jokeefe> Does that schedule for for you, Joe?
21:18 < Joe> it does
21:19 <~jokeefe> Mitch from USPP’s session is called: Why Pirate
        Parties are the best choice for the everyman.
21:19 <~jokeefe> ok. Will post it and announce
21:20 <~jokeefe> Sorry, Joe. I never head back from the ACLU gentleman
        you mentioned
21:21 < Joe> I figured.  It's ok.  Sorry my contact didn't work out.
21:21 < Joe> I am sure that they are busy at the moment.
21:22 <~jokeefe> Perhaps we can have them on Pirate News
21:23 < Joe> Sounds like a good idea.  Who is the last speaker?
21:23 <~jokeefe> BTW: Micky offered a relaxing gathering place outside
        Boston should we want to have an event there. Will send details in email
21:23 <~jokeefe> Micky from Agaric (
21:24 < Joe> We also have a small spot in Lowell too!!!
21:24 <~jokeefe> They are a software development cooperative
21:24 <~jokeefe> Thanks, Joe
21:26 <~jokeefe> Pirate News on Sunday? What should we talk about?
21:27 < Joe> Yes, there are a few topics that are hot atm.
21:28 < Joe> Gun ban stuff is big in the court system atm, esp in CA
21:28 < srevilak> Hurricane Ian?
21:28 < Joe> 500 year storm is a good one too, I have family friends we
        have not been able to contact.
21:29 <~jokeefe> Hope they are ok.
21:29 <~jokeefe> Ukraine is heating up and then there is this
21:30 < Joe> That is the elephant in the room.  WW3
21:32 <~jokeefe> I believe the US military has been amassing more data
        on people gathered by companies
21:32 < Joe> How likely will it be? We did give a solid response(US)
        to them (Russia). Plus it really depends on how it goes down, there are
        a lot of moving technical aspects to this that makes it hard to give a
        predictable answer.
21:33 < Joe> It would be an easy one to talk about for hours.
21:33 < Joe> I'
21:33 < Joe> I'm not sure we really want our focus on it.
21:34 <~jokeefe> There is much else to discover. Could briefly talk
        about the sham elections
21:35 <~jokeefe> There is this one too
21:36 <~jokeefe> We can sort it out Sunday. Anything else you want
        to discuss?
21:36 < srevilak> nothing here
21:36 < Joe> I'm content with all the content.
21:37 <~jokeefe> BTW: here is the US military spying story:
21:37 <~jokeefe> Shall we adjourn, then?
21:38 < srevilak> sounds good
21:38 < srevilak> will post transcript
21:38 < Joe> Aye
