[9:11pm] Wodensday: We had a meeting on Tuesday where we mostly discussed our future with video content. Information on how to hand revokable keys to YouTube should be in all of the right hands by now. We also have a resolution for the PNC regarding the Tik Tok account, which is currently unofficial.

[9:14pm] Frank: I am sorry that I wasn't able to attend the meeting last week.
[9:14pm] yari: I'd also like to follow up with you about something that was reported for the committee last meeting. There was a mention of weekly writing of articles. Any progress on setting up a system of sharing responsibility for doing that?
[9:15pm] yari: Thanks for the ID, Frank. And no worries, welcome.
[9:16pm] Wodensday: The infrastructure is there, though everyone with the ability to drive and use it has been a bit occupied with other activities as of late. We can figure out how to jumpstart that and ensure we get stuff moving.
[9:16pm] Wodensday: *ability and drive to
[9:16pm] Wodensday: (in other words, it’s been a heck of a week for me, but I have a plan)
[9:17pm] Bosun: Keep driving forward.
[9:18pm] yari: ^
[9:18pm] yari: Cool. Glad to hear it's on the radar.
[9:18pm] yari: Thank you for your diligence.
[9:18pm] yari: Moving on then. Platform, Joe?
[9:18pm] Radiojoe joined the chat room.
[9:19pm] Radiojoe: Hello all
[9:19pm] Joe: I missed last week due to personal reasons but plan to start off right tomorrow.
[9:19pm] jokeefe: ahoy
[9:19pm] Joe: Ahoy radiojoe
[9:19pm] yari: Hi RadioJoe. ID please
[9:20pm] Radiojoe: William Dappen CA
[9:20pm] Wodensday: Joe, if you need help pulling this platform stuff off, don’t hesitate to reach out
[9:20pm] Joe: I see we have lots of great discussion though which is the point so I think its something that is greater than me and glad to see continue.
[9:21pm] yari: Sounds good Joe. To Wodensday's point, you are free to organize the committee however you wish, so long as someone is able to make reports to the PNC at the end of the week.
[9:21pm] Joe: I appreciate your support, believe it or not I have a lot of it already done by some folk in mass for q solid base
[9:22pm] Joe: That said, I need all the help I can get.
[9:22pm] yari: Joe, I think reaching out to the other members on discord might not be a bad idea
[9:22pm] yari: Especially the regulars
[9:22pm] Joe: If we could get a slice of the wiki and someone to upload it would br great
[9:23pm] Joe: Wodensday, mqy I reach out after the meeting?
[9:23pm] Joe: *may
[9:23pm] yari: Of note, RadioJoe has been working on the wiki a bunch recently.
[9:23pm] Wodensday: Of course! DMs are always open
[9:24pm] yari: And Wodensday, I would gently remind you to not take on too many responsibilities.
[9:24pm] Joe: Part of my problem atm 
[9:24pm] yari: Not trying to dissuade you from this, just...
[9:25pm] yari: It's better if we include new volunteers where possible!
[9:25pm] Wodensday: Haha, trust me, I’m getting way better at that. This whole outreach chair thing has been a valuable learning experience in knowing my limitations
[9:26pm] Wodensday: I will try to keep my scope within the scope intended of me
[9:26pm] yari: So Joe will there be a meeting tomorrow then?
[9:27pm] Joe: Yes, because of the delay I plan to open up two topics instead of one.
[9:27pm] yari: Sounds good.
[9:27pm] Joe: Internet as a right
[9:27pm] Joe: Immigration
[9:28pm] Joe: Also, on budget I am calling Bosun tomorrow morning.
[9:28pm] yari: Do we have a permanent record of the platform meetings? I know most of them are on Discord currently, which we can use as a temporary transcript.
[9:29pm] Joe: We have only have discord. I focus on building the rest of my pc to make my meeting more elegant.
[9:29pm] Joe: Sorry for the delay.
[9:30pm] yari: Okay. Discord works for now, and it's not a worry. If someone requests notes from a specific meeting, we can supply them.
[9:30pm] Joe: That is all I have
[9:31pm] yari: Thank you for your work with platform, Joe. Especially as it's grown into an awesome discussion space.
[9:31pm] yari: Anything else you wanted to say for treasury?
[9:32pm] Joe: Just that I am coming for Bosun in the morning.
[9:32pm] Joe: Please expect my call.
[9:32pm] Joe left the chat room. (Quit: Connection closed)
[9:33pm] yari: Ominous! I like it.
[9:33pm] Joe joined the chat room.
[9:33pm] Joe: Wrong button
[9:33pm] Bosun: Can you make afternoon?
[9:33pm] TextSpex left the chat room. (Quit: Connection closed)
[9:33pm] Wodensday: We pirates are nothing if not foreboding eldritch creatures.
[9:33pm] Joe: ....for you, of course
[9:33pm] yari: Moving on. Bosun, anything from the vice-chair?
[9:34pm] Bosun: OK how about 1:00 pm Central time.
[9:34pm] Joe: I am not foreboding. I
[9:34pm] Joe: Though eldritch I can not argue
[9:34pm] Joe:
[9:35pm] Joe: Anytime. This should just be for a few quick numbers.
[9:36pm] Joe: We can meet on jitsi if it pleases you
[9:36pm] Bosun: Vice chair has a long list of items that he will contribute after He get through this week as it is Sebastian's 3rd birthday and mother-in-law visists.
[9:37pm] Joe: Then should we plan on a more appropriate time?
[9:37pm] Bosun: The least I can do is give you my numbers.
[9:38pm] Joe: Happy birthday to the little one btw. 3rd already.  Wasn't he just born?!!??!?!
[9:38pm] yari: Yeah, that's pretty wild.
[9:39pm] Bosun: No we should beat Bosun over the head with a nurf cutless.
[9:39pm] Joe: It should be a quick and painless. More like a josh fight
[9:39pm] Bosun: I think he was born three years ago. 
[9:39pm] Wodensday: The nerf cutlass battle worked out for the Indiana meetup, surely it can work again
[9:40pm] Joe:

[9:40pm] yari: Incredible. Moving on to new business, since reports are done
[9:40pm] Wodensday: Hold on, was Pmchi asked of swarmcare?
[9:40pm] yari: OH
[9:40pm] yari: Dangin
[9:40pm] yari: drat
[9:40pm] yari: Thank you
[9:40pm] yari: Pmchi
[9:40pm] Wodensday: If he has anything to report, I don’t think so but he should have the chance haha
[9:41pm] pmchi: First of all, fantastic meeting from Massachusetts Pirates. That was awesome and Steve was incredible answering questions. Nothing state specific happening, although I did see an eager new Indiana Pirate interested, so great news for the Midwest. Australian joint event will be the 30th. We needed to cut it down to two guests, so my apologies to Joe and Wodensday but it will be Yari and I the representatives for the event. I would like
[9:41pm] pmchi: to have both of you participating in an event soon, perhaps an event for October and the Patriot Act or the Pan-American event planned for November. Massachusetts, i would love a joint Illinois-Massachusetts event once Illinois is finally recognized and moving. I thought I’d have a second Illinois member today, guess not. I apologize I guess that wait remains.
[9:41pm] pmchi: Had that ready to copy and paste, thank you for asking
[9:41pm] yari: lol thank you for waiting, my apologies
[9:42pm] Joe: No worries, work is picking up again for some reason
[9:42pm] Wodensday: (On that note, Indiana website is still moving along, even if it is not as quick as I hoped)
[9:42pm] yari: Excited for more midwest pirates!
[9:42pm] Wodensday: so, something Hoosier is definitely festering
[9:42pm] Wodensday: for better or for worse
[9:42pm] yari: Definitely for the better.
[9:43pm] yari: Thank you, pmchi.
[9:43pm] Wodensday: Clearly you’ve never been to Terre Haute
[9:43pm] Wodensday: (I kid, I kid. I love my state. Sometimes.)
[9:44pm] yari: I haven't! Wodensday, you had some new business you wanted to bring up?
[9:44pm] Wodensday: Yes! Give me oooone moment here, pulling it up
[9:45pm] Bosun: I am having Megan poll her Indiana peeps for bodies and minds.
[9:45pm] Wodensday: The following proposal by the outreach committee is being brought before the PNC: “A proposal for the PNC that the keys to the newly created TikTok be shared by the Chair and Vice Chair and given to other officers or committee chairs at their discretion.” TikTok may be more difficult to tweetdeck, so this ensures that we have a way to use it
[9:45pm] Wodensday: whether or not my research and development works for it.
[9:46pm] yari: So, this is not yet a motion, but it requires a PNC motion to pass, per the motion on 7/11/21
[9:47pm] Wodensday: @Bosun, bring any Hoosiers to me that you can capture
[9:47pm] yari: I would appreciate any discussion to take place first
[9:48pm] yari: If there are those who have modifications they would like made to this before it is made a motion, please speak up.
[9:48pm] yari: Otherwise, I am open to other points of discussion or a motion to pass.
[9:48pm] Bosun: I move for the PNC that the keys to the newly created TikTok be shared by the Chair and Vice Chair and given to other officers or committee chairs at their discretion.
[9:48pm] yari: Motion on the table.
[9:49pm] Bosun: or 2nd the above
