2008.07.21 Meeting Notes
Davis Public Library
- Demo — No news.
- Installfests —
The last IF was on July 19th. There were a few RSVPs, a number of
onlookers, and there was talk of making "themed workshops". Each IF would
have a different topic. This will require additional leadership
(someone to pick topics, do background research, etc.) Discussion is
being done on the Installfest page of DavisWiki.org. Volunteers welcome!
No future IF has been scheduled, yet.
