Agenda

Attendance/introductions

If you put your ?def into jibot, it makes introductions go a LOT faster. If you have no idea what this means, we'll explain in the meeting :)

SFC inboxes

  • Who should be checking our e-mail? Who wants to check our e-mail?
  • We have a bunch of shared IMAP accounts, we may be transitioning to OTRS in the future
  • We have three main inboxes right now:
    • freedom@fc.o is the general inbox
    • newgroup@fc.o is for people starting new chapters
    • media@fc.o is for media inquiries
    • others are mentioned at e-mail but that list is out of date and many of those addresses no longer exist, or are not being checked by anyone

Communal phone numbers + press contacts

  • We can make communal phone numbers for SFC using GrandCentral, by making a single phone number forward to several phones at once. That way, if any one person is available, they can pick up the phone and answer it. This would even give us communal voicemail, if nobody picks up!
    • Nelson has several GrandCentral invites Actually, I just logged in and they seem to have vanished/expired... I had one left over that I had sent to myself, so I was still able to create a single phone number for SFC, but I do not have more than one phone number available. --Nelson 19:01, 4 May 2008 (EDT)
    • Is there anything functionally wrong with this approach, or evil about Google+GrandCentral that makes it not ideologically compatible?
  • Should we have a press contact phone number? I think so, because it makes it easier for reporters on a deadline to reach us quickly, which helps us get more press. If so, who should the number forward to? (How many people can share a GrandCentral account?)
  • Would other communal phone numbers be useful? Such as a "chapter help hotline"? Or are phones a silly way to do things in this day and age?

New Business

What didn't we get to cover this meeting that should be placed on the agenda for next meeting? (This is a good way to make these agendas more participatory.)
