  • Main goals for NPC meetings:
    • Collaborative Democracy workshop on the topic of priorities for technology work with the entire NPC (1 hour needed). Raise this need for an agenda item on Thursday night OC meeting (rep: Sylvia). What do we, the ICT, think? Should we do this exercise together remotely, as in, all participants of the ICT are encouraged to do this exercise with help from the larger NPC? Results:
    • Summary of ICT accomplishments to date (5 - 10 minutes needed). Ask for during the Thursday OC meeting to introduce this conversation sometime during the NPC meetings, as an agenda item. Jamie broke down our tickets such that our work can be presented. Summary write up has been started.

  • Tangential ICT considerations:
    • WSF IC delegation: USSF ICT representation at the WSF Communications Commission report back. Proposal to get WSF Technology working group absorbed into the USSF ICT.

    • Mark in Detroit: Mark is going to Detroit - pre planning considerations?
  • General political points:
    • Role of fundraising, lessons learned from 2007
    • Role of free software, only in exceptional cases can proprietary software be used by the USSF
    • Techies are organizers as well as techies
