    • No meeting on Nov. 11 for Veterans Day; dinner instead anyone?
    • Shimon, Josh, Garrett, Kris, and j talked about blogs on Saturday
    • Dim sum or brunch outing on Sunday, Nov. 14?
    • Test run of recording equipment for future meetings
      • Lisa loaned j a microphone. (Thanks, Lisa!)
      • Who’s bringing recording equipment?
      • The test didn’t work.
    • Garrett, Christina, and j on blogs and knowledge management
      • We’re using my laptop for the presentations, so I couldn’t really take live notes. The batteries in my PalmPilot died during Garrett’s talk.
      • Christina:
        • personal km vs. Km personal v. Multiple people
        • why blog?
        • Blogs mean different things to diffeerent people
        • someone’s voice vs. Corporate voice
        • information ecology
        • how people keep found things found is key–blogs are good for that
        • search, retrieval is important–metadata archiving
        • existing technology
        • blogging is about the person, not the technology
      • j talked about feeds and knowledge management
        • I couldn’t take notes about my own presentation while I was giving it. Maybe I’ll fill this in a little later
      • Garrett:
        • we’re always looking for new sources of knowledge
        • started in Blogger, moved to get feed & group support
        • it’s easy to blog
        • Garrett highly recommends that any blogger use an aggregator
        • the batteries in my PalmPilot died
        • Garrett’s talk is very similar to one he gave on Saturday. His PowerPoint slides from that talk
      • Because the panel will happen in twelve days, the slides are not publicly available yet. The intention is to make them available after the talk on Tuesday, November 16th.
