Nath_Yes jelkner16:20
jelkneri'm glad you're here16:21
Nath_Me too jelkner 16:21
Nath_i was using the other channel jelkner16:21
jelkneras i was saying to zOnny, my main goal for the next month+ is to work with you to become a real partner with zOnny in running this coop16:21
jelkneryou're at the right time in your life16:21
jelkneryou just graduated from college16:22
jelknerand are starting your career16:22
Nath_I agree with that jelkner16:22
jelknerso we want to find out as soon as we can whether we can make that work16:22
jelknerwe are making slow but steady progress, Nath_ 16:23
jelknerit is going to take years16:23
jelknerbut i'm convinced we are on the right path16:23
jelknerwe have a niche that we are developing16:23
jelknerdo you know what a niche is?16:24
Nath_I know, i was talking about it with zOnny16:24
Nath_Oh no16:24
Nath_but I can google it jeje16:24
jelknerlook at that one16:25
jelkneran important idea to undersant16:25
jelknerfor us to be successful, it will help a great deal if we have a "speciality" that we do better than anyone else16:26
jelknerthat, in the market sense, is called a niche16:26
Nath_It is the same meaning for us of Nicho16:26
jelknerso, our niche is the latinx political movement16:27
jelknerwe did Elizabeth Guzman's website16:27
jelknerwe did Celina's website16:27
jelknereven more important, we did the Maryland Latino Caucus16:27
jelknerthat was big for us16:27
jelknerthis is a process that takes years16:28
jelknermany years16:28
jelkneras the latinx community grows in power16:28
jelknerit will have control over more resources16:28
jelknerand be both need and afford a larger web presence16:29
jelknersince we will have been here from the beginning16:29
jelknerwe are in a good position to be the "go to" business to meet those needs16:29
jelkneralso, as i was telling zOnny, there is a huge need in the labor movement for LibreOrganize16:30
jelknerwe can't make that happen until we "skill up" more16:30
jelknersince we do not yet have the skills we need to develop that properly16:30
jelknerzOnny is working hard on that16:30
jelkneri need your help, Nath_, working with your cousin to see if he wants to be part of that16:31
jelknerwhen i leave in august, i am going to ask you to be in charge of supervising GFbot16:31
jelknerare you ok with that?16:31
Nath_Of course jelkner16:31
jelkneri will also want you to receive all financial transfers16:32
jelknerso we need to setup you bank account so i can transfer funds to you16:32
Nath_Sure I can manage that16:32
jelknerand you can disburse them16:32
jelknerfrom a technical point of view, your main task is to use your design skills to learn how to make really beautiful and user friendly web designs16:33
jelknerthat's why zOnny and i need you to learn to style Django templates16:33
jelknersince that's where your designs will live16:34
Nath_A front end  team work zOnny said 16:34
jelkneryes indeed16:34
jelknerthat's all i have for now16:34
jelkneri can't wait to arrive in santa ana!16:34
jelkneri'll be there tomorrow16:35
jelkneroh, one last thing16:35
Nath_Thanks for communicate this jelkner16:35
Nath_We are happy to receive you16:35
jelknerour goal should also be to get you to the point where you earn more than your uncle ;-)16:35
Nath_jaja, I miss replacefill as well16:36
jelknerme too16:36
Nath_thats a great idea jelkner16:36
jelknerand as an owner of a business based in the US, it should be possible, Nath_ 16:37
jelknerif we work hard enough to achieve it16:37
jelknerzOnny, we signed up about 28 new people for the NEA4OR caucus16:38
zOnnyjelkner: that's great16:38
jelkneri told them to wait until the end of august to hear from me16:38
jelknersince we need the platform to be updated16:38
jelknerso that it supports tracking membership renewals16:39
jelknerin other words, we have like 50 people in the membership list16:39
jelknerbut most have not renewed16:39
zOnnyjelkner: right16:39
jelkneri need a way to mark those who have renewed16:39
jelknerand change the status from member to "expired" for those who have not16:40
jelknerthen i need to bug everyone who hasn't renewed to pay up16:40
jelknerbut i can do that until we can track it16:40
zOnnyjelkner: tendenci can do it16:40
jelkneri know it can16:40
jelknerbut can LibreOrganize?16:40
jelknerthat's what we need to work on this summer16:40
zOnnyjelkner: I see16:41
jelkneri will start with a serious talk with GFbot16:41
jelkneri'll be staying at his house16:41
jelknerhe needs to learn how to deploy LibreOrganize16:41
zOnnyjelkner: he knows that I will be here to work with him.16:41
jelknerand to begin learning how to develop it16:41
jelknerand i'll be there in santa ana to light a fire under his butt ;-)16:42
jelknerwe should start with our own website16:42
jelknerlike we discussed16:42
zOnnyjelkner: :D16:42
