2006/08/17 Proposed Agenda


Don’t forget: the Berkman Center moved to 23 Everett Street in Cambridge. A few weeks ago, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society moved to a large, yellow Victorian building at 23 Everett Street. The conference room we will use for the meetings is on the second floor. It’s number 202. It’s just across from the elevator and to the immediate right of the stairs. (No, it’s not the men’s room.) The building is a short distance from Baker House, where we used to meet.

      Any chance of a workshop or two where a number of people can bring their respective blog problems to the table and then work to solve them. This might be a good way to learn from each other’s efforts.

      Yeah, sure. Like we said at last night’s meeting, we’re off next week (August 24). Zach wants to do something on September 7. (Right?) Maybe we can do the workshop on September 14 or August 31.
