[Noisebridge-board] Reminder: board meeting at Noisebridge, 7pm this evening

Oh, I'll be there.  I'm just turning this thread into an Example, and
moving my other commitment to another night.  I want to be able to
give this meeting full attention and all the space it requires (given
the lengthy agenda), and telepresence doesn't really cut it.

I do understand that the correct trade-off is being made here; it's
just not very easy for me to turn on a dime.  So let's avoid that in
the future. Jessayin!
