Linux Users' Group of Davis - "LUGOD 2010.08.16 Meeting Notes"
2010.08.16 Meeting Notes
Explorit Nature Center
- Installfests —
No report. Alex Mandel and Bill Kendrick discussed holding an
Installfest immediately following Software Freedom Day, in
late September, so that visitors to our SFD booth (if we have one,
e.g., at Farmer's Market) can go get Linux soon thereafter.
- LERT —
- Library —
The portion of our now-defunct Lending Library that the
CSU Bakersfield CS dept. wanted is still in Bill Kendrick's
possession. We're trying to figure out the best way to get them
down there. Greg Lasher suggested Craigslist Ride Share.
- News —
The next LUGOD social gathering at Crepeville (Sept. 7th) will
also be a roundtable discussion and show-and-tell of Android-based
mobile devices. The next LUGOD meeting will be on Sept. 20th,
and will be about the Haiku operating system.
- Financial Report —
$22.00 in voluntary dues were collected tonight.
$60.00 is due to the Post Office to renew our PO Box.
No news regarding California tax exempt status. We are
still waiting to receive all previous financial material from
LUGOD's previous treasurer, Henry House.
Action needs to be taken regard CA tax extempt status ASAP.
- Becoming a UC Davis "Campus Affiliate Group" —
- Explorit membership —
Greg FitzGerald (treasurer) and Bill Kendrick (president) agree that we can
afford $75 donation to Explorit (and do this rather than bother getting
a membership, since that would be wasted). A vote may be necessary for this
to happen, and Bill and Greg will refer to the bylaws. If a vote is
necessary, it will take place at the September meeting, otherwise
[incomplete minutes corrected 2010.09.23 --bjk] Greg will cut a check
and send the donation to Explorit.
- "Patent Absurdity: how software patents broke the system" was screened,
and a short discussion among the audience took place
