Yeah fair calls on the shared equipment issue.
i think one way would be to haveit on the wiki and maybe ask cherrybomb if
we could store it there.

>> Kia ora all,
>> As you know we had the Aotearoa Indymedia Convergence over
>> the weekend in Auckland. ((More info on that to be fed
>> back at a later date)) During the convergence we held a
>> "local caucus" where people from Auckland (some long time
>> IMCers and some very new) met to re-establish the Auckland
>> Indymedia Collective.
>> The following is our meeting minutes and the decisions to
>> do with funds need to be ratified over this email list, so
>> read carefully and if you have any objections nows the
>> time to raise it and for us to discuss these provisional
>> decisions :
>> 1. Bank account signatories- to transfer from Chloe to
>> Omar and Kathy Lane, ((To people who don't know her: Kathy
>> is a long term activist who has looked after the GPJA
>> database for ages and is just getting involved in Indy))
>> 2. To transfer the $280 of Auckland Indymedia money that
>> Omar has in his possesion as a result of donations; to the
>> Indy.org.nz server Axxs, to help them cover their costs.
>> Also to transfer a further $220 of Auckland Indymedia
>> funds to Axxs to make the entire donation to our server
>> $500. Note: $500 was the amount agreed during the
>> convergence to give to Axxs.
>> 3. To make available the use of up to $200 to pay for the
>> exclusive use of the Oblong internet cafe in Wellington so
>> that we can host the IndyGeek Bootcamp.
>> 4. To make available a certain amunt of funds (yet to be
>> decided) for Indymedia to purchase a MiniDisc Player as a
>> way of digitally recording audio for streaming on our
>> website and then to Low Power FM and Internet stations
>> like Radio Chomsky, podcasting and what not.
>> Auckland Mult((i))media Group
>> During the meeting we decided that in order to get more
>> people excited about the potentials of multimedia
>> technology, sharing their own stories and empowering their
>> communitties we needed a group that could act as a base in
>> Auckland where people who want to shoot video/make radio
>> shows/take photos can come to and borrow technology, gain
>> skills, and coordinate on projects.
>> 1. To look into what sort of MiniDisk player and
>> microphone we would need to make available within the
>> 2. To produce material advertising the Auckland
>> Mult((i))media group for distribution digitally and in the
>> real world.
>> 3. In the group so far- Omar, Kathy, Davian, Aaron, Phil,
>> Bruce, Daph, Farrell
>> 4. To use the imc-auckland-video list to co-ordinate the
>> groups internal activities.
>> Next Auckland Indymedia Meeting
>> When: 1pm on Saturday, March 3rd
>> Where: "Brazil" Cafe, on Karangahape Road
