FC.o conference call for 22 May 2005.

Agenda

Can we just incorporate already?

  • We're gonna do it unless you say otherwise
    • Reasons not to: Possibility of Florida having crappy annual filing practices; possibility of being better to incorporate in another state
      • Annual filing doesn't look bad
        • If we're 501(c)3, we'll have to do a ton of paperwork
      • If we should have incoporated somewhere else, the worst that happens is that we're out $80 (donated)
        • We won't likely have an actual office somewhere for a long time, so we'd be waiting a while

UK groups

We should set up a meeting with the UK and US people and discuss how we can work together across the Atlantic.
