[Noisebridge-board] Reminder: board meeting at Noisebridge, 7pm this evening

Howdy folks,

We'll meet in the library at 7pm. Quorum is 3 out of 5.

Madelynn has asked to be dialed in by a Google Hangout. If that's your
cup of tea, you're welcome to join her. Please tell me if that's your
plan, so that I don't show up to Noisebridge to have a one-person
meeting with my laptop.

At the end are some topics that I think we should discuss. This isn't
an exhaustive list, and I think we should wrangle the agenda at the
start of the meeting. Please think about other things that you want to
work on, but I don't think we'll get through everything this evening.

Thanks for volunteering!

regular, or ad-hoc?
* How do we record meetings? Do we only note minutes, or also
discussion details? Where do we post the notes?

cyberspace? Is there food?
