louiseaI saw the email. not the log though.18:57
louiseabig thanks.18:57
jelknerit now reads: "msg NickServ identify <REDACTED>"18:58
jelknerwhich both preserves your transgression for posterity and removes the harm potentially caused by it ;-)18:58
replaceafilli'd still recommend louisea to change it18:59
jelknerof course18:59
louisealol. I wouldn't want people to completely forget.18:59
jelknerand since irc isn't very secure to begin with, pick a password that isn't used anywhere else18:59
remindBot1. Link from louisea to document summarizing what he found out from accountant19:00
remindBot2. Talk about priorities for coming week, including PWPC websites and evote for AEA19:00
jelknerwelcome everyone, and first time ncerna in particular19:00

jelknerso i think this is everyone19:00
jelknerremindBot just printed the agenda, which will be brief19:01

*** Rena_ has joined #NovaWebDev19:02
louiseawe got confirmation that we were on the right track with some of the forms19:03
*** nrcerna has joined #NovaWebDev19:03
jelknerhi Rena_19:03
louiseaand he pointed us towards others that I'll need to do a bit more research on19:03
louiseabut we're deeper into the bureaucratic hole19:03
nrcernaHi erveryone, Thank you jerlkner19:03
louiseaand I'm organizing myself through it.19:04
louisealots of forms for reporting and filing.19:04
jelknerlouisea, will you be ready by next tuesday to lead a "next steps" discussion?19:04
jelknerwhat we need most is a list of "ToDos"19:05
louiseajelkner yes19:05
jelknerfor example, Team Guanaco, you all need to fill out this form and send me this other information, etc19:05
jelknergreat, let's make that the first item on next tuesday's meeting19:06
louiseayup. I'll have the forms figured out.  and what I don't have I'll have concrete questions to ask of the accountant.19:06
jelknerfor now, i'd like to talk about item 2, the plan for the week, and a bit of a more general discussion of focus19:06
louiseaso I can get those in order19:06
jelknerwe need a business plan19:07
jelkneri think we have the potential to make creating websites for progressive candidates running for office one of our key "products"19:07
jelknersince we are certainly gaining experience with that19:07
jelknerif we agree that is a good idea, we need to keep developing "value added" skills19:08
jelknerlike learning about how to evaluate electoral data19:08
jelknerand how to help our customers "message".19:08
Rena_I was out when I joined, I'm gonna leave and come back real quick on my desktop19:09
jelknerso we would be not only web developers, but a bit of political consultants as well19:09
jelknernot at first, perhaps, but if we are going to be successful19:09
jelknerncerna has an important role to play if we go that route19:10
jelknersince she can do graphics19:10
replaceafillmakes sense to me19:10
jelknerbtw, mr_german, you should add her to our website and think about how to feature some of her graphics work there.19:10
