-**WT meeting: November 15th, 2006** 
- 
-Present: Dory, Edward, Ana Maria, Michael, Gabe, Paul Dowling 
- 
-  * Gladstone 
- * Michael met with Magda and Chris today 
- * they are interested 
- * very important to them: smtp smoothness 
- * G would like to invisibly redirect all outgoing smtp connections from all of our hotspots to a special-purpose smtp server that we maintain, so that smtp always works without any configuration changes on the client side 
- * NO ONE ELSE IS OFFERING THIS YET, so when we do offer it, let's make some noise 
- * it's a little sketchy privacy-wise,​ but if people are concerned about privacy (and adequately savvy), they should be using secure SMTP and/or a VPN anyway, in which case they'​ll be unaffected 
- * the nice thing about this approach is that it "just works" 
- * it'll take a while to set it up -- in the meantime, let's simply announce the smtp server for each spot 
- * launch in time for state of the art -- Michael following up 
- 
-  * stickers 
- * ink is peeling off -- maybe it's not-so-compatible with Edward'​s printer? 
- * Edward will give Gabe the overcover stuff 
- * Dory will tweak colours, and add crop marks 
- * Gabe will order more sticker sheets (inkjet and/or laser?) 
- 
-  * Paul has a bunch of places he wants to sign up 
- * G to send him link to portal page, pitch kit PDF 
- * can a venue pay $150 fee for three years instead of $50 each year 
- * yes -- and it protects them from price increases during the time for which they'​ve paid 
- * but the entire amount is still nonrefundable 
- 
-  * Edward: we need to think about network membership renewals for some of the venues soon 
- 
-  * December meeting & social: scheduling 
- * cancel the meeting 
- * move the social to Monday, December 11th 
- 
-  * January event 
- * organizing something ​ 
- * wifi roach coach 
- * one wifi-wimax backpack 
- * one wifi repeater backpack 
- * lots of testing required 
- * lots of battery work required 
- * need flyers 
- * scheduling, 'cause it's during the day 
- * drill batteries? 
- * solar? 
- * very complicated;​ let's hold off for now 
- * next steps via email 
- 
----- 
- 
-ACTION ITEMS: 
- 
-  * Michael to follow up with Gladstone; goal is to install there by uTOpia2 launch on Nov 26 
-  * Dory will tweak colours in sticker art 
-  * Gabe to order more sticker material and find other printing options 
-  * Edward will (remind us to) contact venues who need to pay for another year of service 
- 
- 
-UNCLAIMED ACTION ITEMS: 
- 
-  * figure out what the SMTP server is for each of our hotspots, and find a way to include that info on the portal page 
-  * start working on a network-wide SMTP server, including some method of tracking (so that we can link abuse back to the associated WT user account), and the redirection on the routers 
-  * pick a place and (optionally) plan for the December social/​holiday party 
-  * begin discussing the wifi roach coach
