This will be a lot LOT easier when we have a more functional consensus
process.  I knew Noah felt steamrolled last night, I was probably part
of that steamroller after 5 hours of cleaning and 2 hours of standing-up
meeting in a cacophanous room.  There were a lot of disruptor elements
at the meeting too.

We need to separate consensusmaking meetings from the Open Tuesday
meetings.  I'm not sure how, but last night showed how well it works to
have non-members showing up for their first meeting "contributing" their
thoughts to the consensus.  Either we have consensusmaking earlier on
tuesdays (starting at 7?) or we do it on a different day.
