= Discussion = Ryan: Every Tuesday around the afternoon there is a call with Krebs up in Seattle, the firm that helps us with Fundraising. Our current work is with mainly getting grants, which is pretty difficult. We are currently waiting on a couple of financial activity reports relating to our past that are currently being worked on. Once it is complete we will be able to apply to most grants. We are currently applying to SF and California govs. SF for $200k, CA for $1 Million. Theoreitically. Could easily be less. But these open up the door to other grants. Wherever we move, if we can in a declaration say the building will be LEED Certified, we can get more fundraising money, and be placed on building council recommendation lists as a Green Non-Profit. There is also a group of fundraisers who are looking around for buildings we can buy. SF ironically has some almost cheap business locations. (Current market demand is mainly for residential rather than commercial land which works to our advantage.) Lot of old warehouses. Lot of old businesses have been priced out of operating in SF, but we're a non-profit. We are looking for a short term rental location, can be smaller than our current 5,200 sq ft location, because will be temporary. Our goal is a 4,000 sq foot place with a dollar per sqft rent. Once there we can focus on fundraising the $4 Million to buy a place. Are we looking at manufacturing things we could sell? If you have ideas along those lines, you can do them here, even without Fundraising committee involvement. The GALA will be our first big intentional fundraiser ever. (Our past parties accepted money, but this time its a big concerted attempt that puts raising a lot of funds first.) Ryan is working on applying for drink donations. If you know any rich people, or have a boss, bring your boss to noisebridge day is going to happen. Tell your friends/family, repost our social media, we have an active twitter and a twitch stream every Friday. Play videogames while streaming, ask the viewers to donate. We do not need large physical item donations, see eg the large printer with no ink that takes up a ton of space. - Info on the C Standards Committee: Under ISO, close to losing consensus, would fall under another committee. Modules will be in C++20, contracts, C++20 will be the new C++11, modules will be a shitshow, modules will not work the way you think they will. It is super cheap to join the standards committee. $2,200 per year if you're a big company. If small company or non-profit they waive the fee entirely after the first year. Turn in papework Dec 31, pay dues prorated, then get them waived next year. And once you've joined one committee you can join the C Standards Committee as well. If you ever want to go on a binge as fun as wikipedia binging, try checking out a food standards binge (ie standards on making tea or pizza). A new cup for olive oil is being ratified soon. The way ISO works is that if you show up, you are DEEMED to be an expert. == Discussion Items == If any important discussion happens, it should be happening after forward progress is made during consensus.
