Oct 3, 1999 CCON Meeting Agenda/Avatars99 Preliminary Planning

Oct 1, 1999

Dear Ccon team, here is a suggested agenda for those who would be able to make the Sunday 1pm PST in-world board + core do-ers meeting in AV98. I think it would be great if you folks could try to download and get into and we could try to use that during the meeting. It is a great multi person voice app from mpath that really works for small groups. It can also be run in the web/simultaneously with AW. I will attempt to set up a room and get all you into it. Also if you have a webcam make it live as we can put our faces onto a pod in AV98 to give some more realism.

Suggested agenda:

1. Progress since the board meeting, refer to minutes at:

2. Avatars99, progress, call for participation (see the avatars-admin CFP at the bottom of this email), we have about 30 volunteers and a basic announce page at:
Issues for Av99:
a) volunteerism from the board
b) fundraising, have to recharge our bank accounts if possible

3. The upcoming Digital Biota 3/OWorld conference Nov 6-7 and the status of

4. Grantwriting and other fundraising efforts, got to do some

5. New motions, new business?

6. Setting of next meeting, did this one work?

Adjourn, lets try to keep it under 90 mins. if the tech dont work we will go back to good old chat, got to log it anyway.

at your service..
