Dan,  great!  glad you're willing to do a cool apps tour.  Not sure if we have to be slave to I2-enabled apps but given the event and audience it would make sense to select from those that would benefit from I2 connectivity or are useful in communicating opportunities avaialble on I2.  Hey, you could even toss in a couple cool features of Muse !  (if deemed worthy - :)  If you dare enter the virtual world space, it might be interesting to illustrate what's going on beyond second life, perhaps attempt to answer the classic question "ok, i'm here, i get it, but now what? and to what end?  just my two cents....
You mentioned collecting presentations in advance.  I've had the best luck in the past by cornering the speaker before their presentaiton and offering to "drive".  that way i get a copy and it makes their life a little easier.  it can be chaotic during the event (running to grab chairs, taking notes, greeting/welcoming people, etc.)  that i sometimes can't get around to everyone.  perhaps this time we can find someone willing to volunteer as "speaker greeter and presentation wrangler"?  that way we have everything we need to document/archive the day's proceedings and make it immediately available online.
Did anyone take notes today?  I'm anxious to hear the latest planning developments!!

Wow. I guess I should go to camp more often and not show up! This looks great so far!


My biggest gripe/concern will be that all presenters know this time that they need to turn in slides or materials, or a version thereof suitable for publishing, to James or me at the start of the meeting. That is a pretty minor thing BUT it would be great if we could have it out there as we invite these folks and they plan their presos.


BTW: I would be happy to talk about Cool New Apps – do they have to be I2 specific?


I had hoped to have my new handler, Andrea’s replacement, John Pederson, talk about Web2.0 “stuff” and how social networking is being used but (and this doesn’t leave this group, please!) he is coming up much less than interested in Internet2 and conferences, etc. We’re not talking as much as I had hoped. John brings some great skills to the table, but unfortunately his interests seem to be pretty concentrated within those skills at this point. As for me, I’m rather an “outsider” when it comes to this stuff. Dave Lois makes these decisions, and since I don’t actually work for WiscNet, there isn’t a whole lot I can do or say other than ride along…


But I’m sure we’ll get there again at some point…

Hi All,


Tuesday 7/29
10amPDT/12pmCDT/1pm EDT  
dial instructions: 1.877.278.8686 enter PIN 158560


I've taken an initial stab at arranging our agenda ideas to date on a timeline and assigning specific on the team to organize each item. 


Not all the time slots have been filled and we can change the time allocations as needed.  It feels like I've missed a few good ideas, have a look and feel free to refine what is there and fill in the gaps.


Unfortunately, I'm not able to make the meeting tomorrow (conflicting UW commitment this week).  I'll catch up with Randy post-meeting.
