Any listserv or email issues:
List drops names. Martin brought this up with OBIT
(Editor's note: There was also a proposal passed stating that anybody with access to the OB Calendar would be *required* to be on the calendar mailing list. I'm a little confused by what made it into the notes under "Other Issues", but I wanted to make sure -- again -- that the record shows that we actually reached consensus to require this.)
Report on the social media meeting Saturday:
The meeting did not happen. Future media meetings will be held at Boston Public Library
Reports/Requests by or from video/TV/radio:
Jess from OBTV asked for $250 to purchase traveling hard drive to replace Jess' hard-drive. Gunner spoke in favor of expenditure due to his conversation with the donor. The request was approved. Josh will contact Josha Eaton for money. The WG agreed that there should be a strategic plan for future requests for donations.
Eli reported that the OB Twitter account was compromised. Lefty is working on the issue. Eli has changed the password and will replace the current g-mail address with an Occupy Boston email address. Martin will call his Twitter contacts for help. Farhad suggested that social media Administrators should be responsible to help administer calendar events. A member of the WG suggested that an “Editor” status be added in addition to the Administrator Status.
(Editor's note: There was a proposal passed to switch our main contact from gmail.com to occupyboston.org, and Eli agreed to take point on implementation. The implementation part made it into the notes, but I wanted to make sure that the record shows that we actually reached consensus to do this.)
