Trello is sorta a hosted project wiki for makers and hackers. After some discussion the consensus is that it's worth trying.
Seems like we need something at the street so people know they are at the right place. We will contact our property manager to see what can be done.
It's dirty, and needs to be cleaned! We seem to have a general problem with people not cleaning up after themselves. What else is new? There was some discussion about helpful systems encourage putting tools away and cleaning up.
Some discussion about coming up with a name. Needs more input from the discuss list. Would be good to be attractive to a wider audience. Such as kids (library project), and adults.
Kevin went over the account balance, and the membership. We have about 17 + 3 in the works.
The charitable activities report due in April 2012 has been accepted.
