Hey guys, for this kind of thing I think we should use doodle.com, which lets you set up 'polls' of when people might be available for a meeting. It's easy free and gives you an excellent way to visualize people's availability.

I set one up with shannon's dates:

http://www.doodle.com/y7hqtry9uxpfit4w

Steph and Brendan: I filled it out for you based on your responses so that people can see how the system works.

So far it looks like this friday might work if we can find a space. Brendan, are 29 and 30 really no good for you?

I'd prefer earlyish like 6pm if possible, i'm getting on the overnight bus to boston tomorrow night.

Brendan, could we use the vanilla space tomorrow night?

Patrick, do you think we could use the board room at Station C tomorrow night if the Vanilla space isn't available?

If there are less than 10 people then we could use my living room if we can't find another space. 4013 st-laurent #3

Anyone who wants to come please start planning to be available tomorrow evening.

Oh sorry steph, you said 19:30 then I walked all over it with 1800.

We can start at 19:30, that works for me too.

Brendan: Can you please send us the address and brief directions?

Everyone else: so its 7:30 PM at Vanilla headquarters in old montreal. Once we have the directions I'll send a message to the facebook group in case anyone there wants to attend.

It will also be a good time to consider the space as a venue for WC itself :)

I also favor 6pm so maybe Steph will just have to be late for it or catch the  next one. I don't know how long it's likely to last but 1.5 hours seems like it would approach the maximum useful time to spend talking at this point.

Shannon you can make it for 6 right?

I can't make it until 7:30. I have no one to take my kids at 6. But
you can start without me and I can join you later.

As long as we get the date and venue sorted out, have someone getting
the website organized, and someone getting funding organized, it will
be a great start. I'll volunteer to do all the press stuff (press
releases, media packs, etc). I can also help with any website stuff
(as long as I'm not stepping on someone's toes).

sounds good to me...

i hope we can figure most of this out tonight, or at least get started ...

as with Shannon, i'm willing to help with press and web as well...

plus, since i've organized many events, i can help with the nitty gritty, gear and equip, scheduling, food, badges, etc ...

Is it me or does that make it me and brendan at 6, then shannon and steph at 730? That is such weird timing, sorry Brendan, but I'm super busy today so I think I'll come for around  7:15 as well and we can hopefully just have a quick meeting and make some key decisions. I will have to leave by 9 at the absolute latest anyway.
