last saturday's meeting at rincon mexicano, 912 texas ave:
el geekote was sick, ladybug had a family emergency, our prospective new
member had a prior commitment, and bear couldn't make it, but
participated through the miracle of text messaging.
after i chatted with her a bit and dicovered that the participants were
unruly and wouldn't shut up, susan gave a report to la bowow who went
off to a corner so she could hear and then shared it with us,
the core groups consists of bear, geekote, rebecca, adrian, chavita,
clavo, ladybowow, mary, susan (next time through the miracle of skype
and someone who can bring a lap top), and yours truly.
we form the editorial group, under our foundational documents, and make
major decisions to be ratified by the rest of the collective.
susan reported on the juárez activities in general and in particular on
her work table/panel discussion, spoke about sicilia's message,
and undertook to translate the 6t points in the message/compact sicilia
brought with him - a translation that is sorely needed. mary agreed to
do some research/writing on problems in education in the all-american
city - i.e., the great divides beween trustees, administrations and
teachers, to the detriment of students in a city with huge dropout
i reported on the juarez work tables at the university, my personal take
on the divisions which surfaced, gustavo's defense, about encouraging
adrian to continue working with his utep causa group, quitting isn't an
option, he allowed as how we would speak with the former members and
encourage them to join our collective. reported about one, possibly two,
new members -
after having failed to receive answers from our pals over at ramona in
sf, we opted to buy our own server, and i agreed to contact a pal who
might purchase it for us if we make a down payment and agree to retire
the balance with monthly contributions.
as you all know by now, this is happening and we should have our server
up and running within the week, if not sooner, and assuming all you
pledgers fork over to our money bags man, who is the fearsome clavo, so
we can make concrete arrangements. mexica tiahui!
nick, how do we acquire the code for the newswire? and are we added
automatically to the cities list one we are on the web?
thanks to all -
