dealing with infiltrators proposals:

Thanks to Donal for this draft
There were no significant changes required so the plan is that we agreed to adopt them – to put on crabgrass for a week for any minor edits first: AP Donal

We agreed that we should attempt to verify any particularly serious allegations published on our site. We should remind everyon of the importance of citing sources

process proposal:

donal and nab have been working on an enhanced explanation, with external input – will circulate shortly
to add, active concensus should be expressed rather than assumed from silence

network meeting:

discussion around a possible feature being discussed on the uk-legal list about gateway 303
preparation of a proposal to stop uk mir site from logging IP addresses
discussion about the damage to our brand caused by the malfeasances of mir admins who are accountable to nobody, with no peer oversight
perhaps a protocol for transparent use could be developed? – maybe later – we would like to see logging stopped until there is a responsible system of oversight.

birmingham have ‘blocked’ our proposal to have the dodgy docs pages removed – to be taken to network meeting

timetable – donal to facilitate on Saturday morning
maybe something about hyperactive arising out of hacklab?
legal briefing (talking about what the law is, not latest conspiraloon twaddle)?
john might be involved in preparing a video workshop

announcements about process & practicalities – AP nab

video training:

13th AM woodhouse – jess has circulated details

next meeting:

5th Dec 2010 – protag was sorting hebden – no confirmation – fallback 1in12?
