jelknerACTION done16:03
inana_16next item: Jelkner's last week full time16:03
inana_16ACTION sad about it :(16:03
jelknerinana_16, this is mostly for me and you to deal with16:03
jelknerbtw. next Summer we do it again in Santa Ana! ;-)16:03
jelkneranyway, we will be moving thursday meetings after this week to 20:00 UTC16:04
SITarabutaOh crap. Now the bot can't say "It's 16:00 UTC".16:04
SITarabutaIt's already out of date16:04
jelknerwe are ready16:04
jelknerwe work really well as a coordinated team16:05
jelknerand i'll still dedicate around 16 to 20 hours a week16:05
jelknerbut you'll have to not count on me for monday to friday stuff16:05
jelknerACTION done16:05
inana_16Thanks jelkner 16:06
inana_16Next item: Business Tracker presentation at Show and Tell 16:06
jelknerbig shout out to inana_16 and zOnny 16:06
jelknerwho got a web page up on short notice16:07
jelknerstill needs a bit of tweaking on desktop16:07
jelknerSITarabuta will be demoing BT at Show and Tell next Wednesday16:07
ubuntouristI've been advertising this a bit. I thought about putting out wide (e.g. Twitter), but then, I don't want to overwhelm the regulars on BBB.16:07
jelknerwe should promote this as much as we can16:07
jelkneri hope that BCI will attend16:08
jelknerACTION done16:08
SITarabutathat is why I am thinking of finally spending those damned $100 Google gave us for "FREE"16:08
SITarabutaofc we are agreeing to donating our soul to the devil - Google16:08
ubuntouristWell, then. Out it will go. (I've already hit Mastodon, Discord, Mattermost, and Scuttlebutt, but they're more marginal than Twitter)16:08
SITarabutabut eh..16:08
SITarabutaScuttlebutt - that sounds interesting...16:09
jelknernot sure how effective Google will be, SITarabuta 16:09
SITarabutajelkner, well.. better than letting it expire I guess16:09
jelknersince our audience is really the cooperative and free software communities16:09
jelknerbut it can't hurt16:09
jelknerso please go ahead16:09
inana_16Do we need business tracker social media or should I create some post on the NWD we have for it?16:09
jelknerinana_16, you and ubuntourist have a better sense of that16:10
abuchholzits another account 16:10
SITarabutadepends if we have social media for libreorganize inana_16 16:10
inana_16We dont16:10
SITarabutaso don't create another one then16:10
abuchholznot sure why business tracker would be an exception16:10
SITarabutaat least for now, I think16:10
inana_16but I think it could be something that we can do16:11
inana_16not now16:11
jelknerinana_16, let's talk more tomorrow16:11
ubuntouristMy sense is that we don't have enough non-boring, non-repetitive news to sustain separate accounts for every project.16:11
inana_16but yeah I'm going to create some design for it as well so we can post it on SM16:11
jelknermy only concern is the overhead ongoing cost16:11
jelknerif you start it, you need to keep it up16:11
SITarabutaubuntourist, best argument - sold16:12
jelknerso be intentional and wise16:12
ubuntouristI say post it whatever under NWD, and tag it with the specifics e.g. #BusinessTracker16:12
inana_16I like that ubuntourist 16:13
inana_16Ok, next item:16:13
inana_16California Rural Legal Assistance Project in partnership with Agaric16:13
ubuntouristHashtags and links should be enough to drive people in the right direction (as well as "trend" it a bit).16:13
ubuntouristACTION is done16:13
inana_16I'm glad to announce that I'm going to work on this project with Agaric16:14
ubuntouristinana_16, Very nice. I wanna hear more about this on hangout, probably.16:14
jelknerinana_16, i'm looking forward to hearing more about it16:14
inana_16We're looking forward to help with the design, Benjamin sent a confirmation that they received the approval16:14
jelknerthis is great on two levels:16:15
jelknerit's the kind of social justice work we want to do16:15
inana_16$27K project16:15
jelknerwe are building our partnership with Agaric further16:15
ubuntouristKa-ching! 😉16:15
inana_16the main goal is that zOnny can learn drupal16:16
inana_16so we can market ourselves as a front end team16:16
jelknerwe need that, to continue providing value to Agaric16:16
ubuntouristAh, So we are going down the Drupal road a bit. Been there. Done that.16:16
inana_16an have some collaborations with them16:16
jelknergreat role for zOnny to play, too16:17
inana_16ubuntourist and zOnny you can talk about that right? :D16:17
inana_16I'll be updating you how that goes16:17
inana_16ACTION done16:17
ubuntouristinana_16, Some, yep. Not too hard as I recall -- except package / extension upgrades were a minor PITA.16:18

jelknerinana_16, you called the question, what about you?16:22
jelknerwe should get APS to pay for it, ubuntourist 16:22
