jelknerGood afternoon, replaceafill!12:51
replaceafillhey jelkner12:51
replaceafillhow was Chicago?12:51
jelknerChicago was fantastic!12:51
jelknerI kept running into web designer / developers wherever i went12:52
jelknerA lot to think about related to our business plan12:52
jelknerI stayed with a group of folks from Arizona on Saturday night.12:53
*** mr_german has joined #NovaWebDev12:53
jelknerThey had a web business aimed at progressive political folks (much like us).12:53
jelknerWe have a good discussion.12:53
jelknerThey said in Arizona they are the only ones playing in that space12:53
jelknerso they get more business than they can handle12:54
jelknerbut there's a problem12:54
jelknerthey basically do custom front ends to Nations Builder12:54
jelknerIs we want to remain true to our free software principles, the tools just aren't there yet12:55
jelknerI'm really looking forward to talking to Micky about that in Boston.12:56
replaceafilli think "some" tools are there, but they're php12:56
jelknerThe BIG question: can we find enough work doing basic websites to keep mr_german, z0nny, Rena, and ncerna busy and happy until we scale up our skills over the long term to the point where we can build real tools12:57
jelknerusing free software in this space?12:57
jelknerThat is almost a project of several years at least12:58
jelknerbut it is this early stage i'm most concerned with now.12:58
jelknercan we develop something sustainable in the near term?12:58
jelknerwe need some lucky breaks12:59
jelknera good result on Tuesday's election could help12:59
jelknerwow, *tomorrow's* election12:59
jelkneri had a great meeting with Rand Wilson, who is starting Labor for Our Revolution13:00
jelknerHe is very interested in what I'm trying to do with NEA Members for Our Revolution13:01
replaceafilljelkner, NEA?13:03
jelkneri also attended a workshop where i got to talk with Christine Pellegrino13:04
jelknerNEA is my union13:04
jelknerThe largest union in the world with almost 3 million members13:05
jelknerAEA is my local13:05
replaceafillgot it13:05
replaceafillheh, Democrats may be beginning to understand that "political action starts in the states."13:07
replaceafillquote from the article13:07
jelknerChristine has kindly offered to help me with getting something together in Boston in 3 weeks13:08
