6/24/07 Meeting Edit

At the 6/24 meeting-potluck we discussed the importance of getting involved with a community project as soon as possible. With a small group of dedicated people, it makes more sense to start with one topic that affects Silicon Valley, to research it, and then become involved with a specific project/initiative.

Our first topic is Environment & Energy Conservation. Please see (and contribute to) the project page for more information.

A new focus (with a new associated community project/initiative) will be created every two or so months, as voted on in meetings. We're taking the "topic per 2 months" approach initially, because we--as a smaller team--see a need to start the process of simply helping in the community. Specialization isn't as crucial until active membership grows.
