Yeah this was at the end of a 1.5 hour meeting, so we were all a little
punch drunk. I think most of this discussion could/should probably go on
next week, when the 6 month proposal is up for consensus. Really we just
kicked around what the language should be. Six month was just my proposal
essentially for working out how we can make consensus items that slowly go
from time-delimited, which is what we generally do for consensus items to
get around the problem of "how do we turn off a bad idea by consensus, when
if we leave it unbounded someone could block to *prevent* someone thing
from being stopped". My idea is to double the time period each time so we
can move from short-term to long-term. I think it's pretty flexible though
-- another idea was to leave it for another 3 months and then restart
again, so that we can check to see if it really made a difference.

That's because we didn't talk about it.

That's what the discussion will be about next week. Putting something up
for consensus is a fairly straightforward act, intended on getting the
discussion ready for the next week.

It wasn't that detailed -- actually we had more detailed discussion about
the topic  in the social engineering meeting previous to the NB meeting,
but my notes on that suck even more than the NB meeting notes
https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Social_Engineers Even I don't understand
what I wrote there.

Will is Will Sargent, who is I think the only Will, although one of many
Sargents. I try to follow Seth's pattern of not using full names in the
notes for privacy reasons, but we should probably at the very least link to
usernames on the wiki. He's https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/User:Wsargent


Danny I'm sorry I publicly stated that your notes were shit. Thanks for

You said they sucked, not that they were shit. Now I am very upset, and
need to held closely and comforted.

Actually, at 1AM I was pissed, but now I am happy you spent this time
making constructive criticisms, and it has made me think more about how to
make the notes better. I am not going to fucking thank you though, you
horrible worm.
