Using the feedback given so far, this meeting has been scheduled for
16:00-18:00 (4-6 PM) CDT (UCT-5, our current local tz), this Thursday,
20 September 2007.  It will take place online, in the
#ubuntu-minnesota IRC channel on the Freenode network.  If you are not
sure how to use IRC yet, please ask for assistance so we can make sure
everyone can log on - you can see for a start.
Again, if you have any topics you would like to discuss, please add
them to
sapphosyne pointed out that as it stands right now, the agenda reads
somewhat like an overly official board meeting (sorry, that's my style
much of the time), so if you can think of any icebreakers, jokes, or
other fun things to open up with to set the tone of the meeting as a
loose, casual, and fun event as it should be, please add your
suggestion!  If you can not attend but have something you wish to say,
please e-mail it to myself ahead of time and I will bring it up on
your behalf.  Logs will be published afterwards.  This is a public
meeting, so feel free to invite anyone you think may be interested,
regardless of whether they have joined the team yet in official terms.

I hope to see everyone there and get started making this team as
awesome as I know we can be!
