Meeting Time: 8:00 PM

Ground Rules

    • This is to cover broad strokes, not explain minutæ to each other.
    • We don’t need to get everything figured out tonight.
    • This doesn’t need to take more than 90 minutes.
  2. Take notes on details for your area.
    • I can’t run the meeting and take notes.
    • Ryan can’t either.
    • Hopefully soon, we’ll have a decent sound system in the lounge and can record/transcribe later.
    • Send them to me and I’ll aggregate them into “minutes”.
  3. As we have more meetings, we’ll figure out how to better organize them.
    • I’ll try to get an agenda up on the wiki early and get an outline.
    • Suggestions to streamline the meeting welcome, just shoot me an e-mail.
  4. Stick to the topic at hand.
    • Probably what you want to cover is farther down on the agenda.
    • If I’m a little abrupt at steering us back on track, apologies in advance.

Warden Committees

  • A chance to hang out with the focus on the specific area.
    • critical that these committee meetings are scheduled.
  • Warden Juniors?
  • People are nervous that "I don't know machine tools, so I could never be the machine shop warden"
    • Comments and ideas needed to fix this
      • More people in person will help a lot
        • Should we have a party?
          • Wardens could demo their area
          • Demos all over the play
          • Probably a saturday kind of thing, end with a partayyyyy

Borked Tools

  • Kevin made a trello for a list of broken tools
    • So there is a system, just have to use it
      • Link to board in Wardens channel

Where do we need wardens?

  • CNC makes sense, but having a warden for every tool is too granular
  • Do we need to split up lasers from the rest of the "FabLab"?
    • Does the Fablab need to be renamed & reorganized
