Agenda for the Wed, 26 Jan 2005 Core team call by Gavin.

General

  • Graphic formats
    • "The formats we should use are The GIMP (xcf), Photoshop (psd), and one of the following: GIF/PNG/TIFF/Targa (tga)"
      • Can Photoshop open GIMP files? If so, there's no need for Photoshop files.
        • PS 7 on OS X wouldn't recognize a .xcf file I made with Gimp 2.2 Nicholasbs 00:18, 26 Jan 2005 (EST)
      • If not, we should use GIMP, Photoshop, PNG, and PDF.
  • Has anyone contacted Giant Robot Printing?
  • Is there a repository of contact information yet?
  • Andy will clean up, generalize, and convert the currently graphical fliers. Is this done?

Tour

  • Have you watched Colin's stuff? How do you feel about it?
  • Has anyone contacted Railer?
    • Colin is contacting them, I believe -- Nelson 00:09, 26 Jan 2005 (EST)
  • What do we think of putting together a DVD?
  • Who does video editing? What software do you use? Is there free software available?
    • All Macs should have iMovie on them, I have iMovie on my Powerbook. I also have access to real video editing workstations at Swarthmore. -- Nelson 00:09, 26 Jan 2005 (EST)
  • Do you have access to a digital video camera?
    • I have access to a digital video camera, most schools should have a place you can borrow one from. -- Nelson 00:09, 26 Jan 2005 (EST)

Papers

  • What's not done with the strategy paper?
  • What's not done with the policy paper?
    • Needs mission statement
    • Needs policy goals reviewed, fleshed out
    • We should have PK or someone look it over
  • What's not done with the activist packet?
  • What's not done with the manifesto?
    • I still like our current manifesto better than the proposed changes. So I would say that what's not done is that we haven't improved the manifesto. I believe that putting too much time into attempting to improve an already-written document when we have many completely unwritten documents is a mistake, we can come back to the manifesto later. -- Nelson 00:15, 26 Jan 2005 (EST)

Internationalization

  • Where do things stand? What should we do? What can we do? When should we do it?
    • Address more international issues
    • Better delineate between U.S. and world issues
    • Make Web site more accessible

Open Access
