ubuntouristSo. First up:16:00
ubuntouristPick a date and time for Sound Advice meeting with David at the helm16:01
ubuntouristWe should try to do this pretty promptly.16:01
abuchholzsome time next week right16:01
jelkneri thought email implied today?16:02
abuchholzi thought it was next thursday 16:02
ubuntouristDavid said Tues or Thurs NEXT week.16:02
abuchholzWe could do Tuesday at 1 16:02
ubuntourist07/21 or 07/23.16:02
ubuntouristI'm good with that.16:02
abuchholzThat was the time we meet this week and I think it worked for everyone16:02
abuchholzubuntourist would you like to email him?16:03
ubuntouristSo, PAldea, zOnny, jelkner OK? 16:03
jelknerubuntourist, do you want me there?16:03
ubuntouristabuchholz, Yes. I'll be mailing him this afternoon.16:03
jelknertoo many cooks?16:03
jelknermy role is contracts and invoices16:04
ubuntouristjelkner, not necessarily. Just a matter of you've chatted w/ him before.16:04
jelkneri understand16:04
ubuntouristSo, zOnny, PAldea?16:04
jelknerit is really important that zOnny and PAldea be there16:05
jelknersince getting to know "the team" is a goal16:05
ubuntouristOk. Great.16:05
ubuntouristNext up: REDCap and why RMS was right16:05
ubuntouristTake it away, jelkner 16:05
jelknerin brief, there is a really cool survey application that Gallaudet runs16:06
jelknerthat ubuntourist was responsible for setting up ooh so many years ago16:06
abuchholz>.< 16:06
jelknerGallaudet would love for us to take over hosting16:06
jelknersadly, it's strange license does not permit that16:06
jelknerif only it were free software, the world would be a better place16:07
jelkneras it is, we will need to pass on this16:07
jelknerACTION done16:07
abuchholzso let me get this right. Since its not free software we dont want to help them?16:07
jelknerabuchholz, we can't16:07
jelknerit's not that we don't want to16:07
jelknerit would not be legal for us to help them16:08
abuchholzok. im curious about this can we talk after the meeting please16:08
ubuntouristabuchholz, we're legally bound, as a 3rd party, to not lay a finger or eyeball on the code. ONLY official Gallaude employees can.16:08
abuchholzoh ok that makes sense16:08
ubuntouristMoving on...16:08
ubuntouristNext, another jelkner item: The historical moment - Riding the train and pulling folks onboard16:08
jelkneragain i'll just be brief here16:09
