Conference call on June 5th, 2005.

Agenda

T-shirts for Defcon

What has to be done in order to have t-shirts ready in time for Defcon? (July 29)

  • Design
    • Ask people you know
    • Should we do an open call for entries on the blog?
  • Printing
    • where does the money come from? will we have the AU grant in time?
  • Shipping? (presumably Elizabeth would use a local printer, so that she doesn't have to wait for shipping)

Other Defcon stuff

What other stuff do we need to do for Defcon?

  • I heard we have to submit some sort of paper?
  • We should have the usual collection of stuff from CC, EFF, PK if any of those organizations are not going to be there. I understand that EFF will be, but I doubt CC or PK are.
  • We should have our own pamphlets. Speaking of which, our pamphlets need updating...
  • Maybe the people going to Defcon can discuss this among themselves, rather than having this as part of the conference call? - Gavin 02:24, 5 Jun 2005 (EDT)
