Hi Phoebe, Often the most interesting thing about
an agenda is what it
omits. So the first board meeting after the SOPA blackout is not going to
discuss blackouts, SOPA and lobbying?
I am assuming Legal will bring it up in the context of the annual plan!
But in our last in person board meeting--very shortly after the
Italian blackout, though I swear I put it on the agenda before
that!--we discussed whether this was something we should get involved
with/devote resources to at all, and what it would mean for us:
Now we're just into specific implementations. :-)
What Kat said -- also, in general, topics that don't make it to the
in-person agenda are usually discussed over email and/or IRC; the
in-person time is so limited that we try to limit to topics that would
really benefit from face-to-face discussions. This meeting in
particular we are trying a slightly different strategy in that we
tried to limit the number of topics discussed, so we can go further
in-depth for each one. Also, I think broad advocacy discussions will
certainly continue for a long time into the future (versus the annual
planning and fundraising discussions, which are time-sensitive).
