[9:11pm] Bosun: @olivia - what does PPI primarily use for meetings?
[9:12pm] Sayyida: BBB i think
[9:12pm] Sayyida: Big Blue Button
[9:12pm] Olivia_: Right now it's BigBlueButton.  It used to be jitsi but it's a nightmare with more than a couple people.  BBB started having issues too it's the usual shutting off the videos if you don't want issues.
[9:13pm] Bosun: Does Big Blue Button work well?
[9:13pm] jokeefe: I thought they used Mumble for audio only chats in the past
[9:13pm] Sayyida: define work well.
[9:13pm] Bosun: Perhaps we should try the same?
[9:13pm] jokeefe: Big Blue Button worked well for our conference
[9:13pm] Sayyida: yea it would be nice
[9:13pm] Bosun: Not crash.
[9:14pm] Olivia_: I've been pushing for Google Meets it requires no downloads or registration.  You just go to the link.  The only person who needs an account is who created it.  I went to a birthday party online the other week and 10 videos all on and nothing went wrong.
[9:14pm] jokeefe: As Secretary, it is nice to have a transcript
[9:14pm] Olivia_: I say that Pirates already use Youtube which is owned by Google.
