[11:18] Moon Adamant: hi Rose, just in time :)
[11:18] Rose Springvale: rezzing...
[11:18] Symo Kurka: Hello Ms Springvale
[11:18] Brian Livingston: Umm
[11:19] Symo Kurka: LOL
[11:19] Brian Livingston: Hello Rose :)
[11:19] Lilith Ivory smiles

[11:19] Cindy Ecksol: don't sit on brian!
[11:19] Rose Springvale: argh
[11:19] Cindy Ecksol: over here next to me....
[11:19] Delia Lake: rabbit fur cushion
[11:19] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:19] Rose Springvale: this okay? still not rezed
[11:19] Rose Springvale: ll
[11:19] Moon Adamant: you're fine :)
[11:19] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:19] Moon Adamant: point one
[11:19] Moon Adamant: 1. Election of Faculty Chair
[11:20] Moon Adamant: before we proceed to the Election of the Faculty Chiar
[11:20] Jon Seattle: Something LL should fix some day :) a special signal when occuping the same spot
[11:20] Moon Adamant: i must ask if there are any volunteers
[11:20] Rose Springvale: smile
[11:20] Moon Adamant: i recall that members present are Jon, Sudane, Symo, Brian
[11:21] Moon Adamant: and myself
[11:21] Jon Seattle: I am willing but also terribly busy and worry that I may not be able to as good a job as I should.
[11:21] Moon Adamant: Jon, thanks - just willing is good
[11:21] Jamie Palisades: what's the expectation from the Guild et al of the Faculty this term?
[11:22] Moon Adamant: well, the Board has decided that the Faculty must reorganize itself
[11:22] Jamie Palisades: are we pressing Jon into something difficult?
[11:22] Moon Adamant: so to become more efficient
[11:22] Moon Adamant: the Board has started a thread in the forums about the issue
[11:22] Moon Adamant: and has also proposed that inworld meetings take place
[11:23] Moon Adamant: so that's the main task, though i should say that the educative task is no less important
[11:23] Jamie Palisades nods - thx for the clarification
[11:23] Moon Adamant: any other volunteers?
[11:23] Sonja Strom: I'm not sure what the Faculty is.
[11:23] Jon Seattle: The in-world meetings are a great idea I think. One thing I do think we need to do is to allow people to remain on the faculty only if they are activley working on NG projects. I see it more as a serice role.
[11:23] Sonja Strom: Mentors?
[11:23] Lilith Ivory: volunteers - for what kind of work?
[11:24] Jon Seattle: *service
[11:24] Lilith Ivory: ah ok :)
[11:24] Moon Adamant: Sonja, for clarification on that, please go to the Guild Forum and read the Sticker that contains our charter
[11:24] Sonja Strom: ok

[11:48] Gwyneth Llewelyn: :)
[11:48] Moon Adamant: Bye Brian, and thanks :)
[11:48] Rose Springvale: thanks bri
[11:48] Sonja Strom: bye Brian!
[11:48] Jon Seattle: Thanks and nice to see you Brian :)
[11:48] Jamie Palisades: Hear, hear. Cheers Bri. It *IS* very kind of Sudane and Rose, as well as Jon and Moon, to continue to serve. Having just been re-appointed myself to a volunteer post, I very much appreciate their donations of volunteer time ..
[11:48] Lilith Ivory: bye Brian
[11:48] Jamie Palisades: ... It's useful to remember that their roles here are nongovernmental: the GUild is a valued private organisation, that can be of great assistance to CDS> However, due to the design Moon and JOn brought when founding this group ... informed by some earlier, poorly-defined models ... the GUild clearly is neither the official CDS government planner, nor our prime or sole contractor. Moon, particularly, has done much to help clarify that relationship, with her good work on the Guild charter. Speaking for CDS and its government, ...
[11:48] Moon Adamant: thanks Jamie
[11:48] Jamie Palisades: not to mention grateful residents ...
[11:48] Jamie Palisades: we're grafteful for the Guild's presence and many contributions ... and we looks forward to continuing to enjoy the benefits of your considerable help and expertise when CDS's needs and the Guilds interests and availability coincide. Thanks.
[11:49] Moon Adamant: thank you Jamie :)
[11:49] Jamie Palisades: :)
[11:49] Gwyneth Llewelyn: ty!
[11:49] Jon Seattle: Thanks Jamie :)
[11:49] Moon Adamant: We at the Guild are also ready to explore new ways to help the organization and growth of our community
[11:49] Moon Adamant: and looking forward to work in synergy with the CDS gov towards that :)
[11:50] Timo Gufler: synergy?
[11:50] Moon Adamant: uh, doesn't exist in english?
[11:50] Rose Springvale: yes, its right
[11:50] Moon Adamant: common effort
[11:50] Jon Seattle: It is correct.
[11:50] Delia Lake: it does, Moon
[11:51] Rose Springvale: timo, working together with energy
[11:51] Timo Gufler: yes... thanks
[11:51] Moon Adamant: thanks, i sometimes invent english words :)
[11:51] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:51] Moon Adamant: point 3
[11:51] Moon Adamant: 3. Inworld Faculty Discussion - organization
[11:51] Delia Lake: everybody sometimes invents english words. that's why english has more words than most languages
[11:52] Moon Adamant: as i was saying, we have discussed this point already, when Jon accepted to hold the inworld meetings
[11:52] Timo Gufler: hehe
[11:52] Jon Seattle knows that Moon tends to note english's borwings from latin and finds some words we should have even if we do not :)
[11:52] Moon Adamant: i must remind though that there is also a forum thread to support the discussion
[11:52] Jon Seattle: (yet)
[11:52] Moon Adamant: :)
[11:53] Moon Adamant: in my opinion, and this being Faculty matters, Jon must organize the meetings and discussion as he sees best
[11:53] Moon Adamant: nevertheless, i point out that this discussion is not closed to Faculty members
[11:54] Moon Adamant: and that the Faculty will gladly accept new inputs
[11:54] Rose Springvale: Moon?
[11:54] Moon Adamant: yes?
[11:54] Rose Springvale: will there be an anouncement re how to nominate people to faculty?
[11:55] Jon Seattle: I was thinking we should have two meetings on faculty.. the second one to decide on recommendations. Also it may be a good to create a homework list: other sites and organizations that get involved in public design education elsehwere in SL.
[11:56] Moon Adamant: ah Rose, you are referring to the problem we spotted last meeting of volunteers that do work but aren't in Faculty?
[11:56] Symo Kurka: Sure, I agree: if we want to develop educational activities we need to join to Cds an educational organization which already works in SL
[11:56] Delia Lake: good idea,
[11:56] Rose Springvale: yes, many people need to be invited in
[11:56] Rose Springvale: maybe they will decline
[11:56] Rose Springvale: but lots of people who qualify
[11:56] Moon Adamant: Symo and Jon,: there are lots of them, i am sure that some will be glad to join a community or help
[11:57] Jon Seattle: The main thing I think is to make the organization attractive to those who want to mentor other designers and programmers. Remember that the faculty is not even limited to CDS members.
[11:57] Jon Seattle: Indeed.
[11:57] Moon Adamant: i will ask Jon formally to take into consideration that issue, Rose
[11:57] Jon Seattle: Okay :)
[11:57] Rose Springvale: smile
[11:58] Rose Springvale: well, i can't with barefeet ;)
[11:58] Moon Adamant: :)
[11:58] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:58] Moon Adamant: 4. Colonia Nova City SE Corner Re-deployment
[11:58] Gwyneth Llewelyn: (too cold for that, Rose!)
[11:58] Moon Adamant: last week, after the Board decision
[11:59] Moon Adamant: it was created a forum thread for those willing to join this WG
[11:59] Moon Adamant: thank you all that have already volunteered
[11:59] Moon Adamant: and i hope more will volunteer
[11:59] Moon Adamant: we will make a pause though
[12:00] Moon Adamant: unti the re-appointed Executive can approve our budget
[12:00] Moon Adamant: and carry on then
[12:00] Gwyneth Llewelyn: budget, bugdet... :)
