2011-12-07 Media/Tech Committee Meeting Minutes

  • Break off from Media Committee?
    • No. The “media” aspects of the media and tech committee could be taken care of within the first half hour with the balance of the time spent working on tech committee matters.
    • Also, if the “media” folks do not wish to join, they can as a committee set their own time and the technical side can keep regular “working group” hours that do not require the permission of the rest of the group.
