I am totally with the idea of distributing the know-how of facilitation.
But the proposed plan of there being a meta-facilitator guiding the
facilitators of each section didn't come to pass, and the meeting was drawn
out by dint there not being expected limits on discussion topics.
Good moderators in general set expectations for a discussion by declaring
how many minutes should be spent on it, and by qualifying what counts as
"in scope" for the meeting and what should be moved to another time.
Tonight there were lots of topics on the meeting agenda, but that wasn't
what drew it out to 10:15pm. What drew it out was the combination of:
* lack of time limits on discussions
* lack of sense of scope on discussions
* unwillingness to create "pointers" to extra-meeting discussions, email,
You have to do these things, and you can't guilt people into attendance
when they tune out and attend to other things because they have no sense of
the progression of things.
And I'm going to restate a previous point I've made about bureaucracy.
There's this tendency to privilege the discussion of
rules/regulations/policies above everything else when it comes to general
When I say "privilege" I mean "give more time and leeway to".
You have to resist this urge. Discussion of policy isn't fundamentally any
more important than discussion of culture, or events, or fiscal solvency,
etc. It's all *equally important*... by which I mean like Five Minutes
important. Because if you multiply out all the subpoints in each section
of any given agenda by 5 minutes, you easily get an hour or more.

Thank you, Jenny and Sonja for driving to stores and picking up supplies
This is all going to be rolled up into a TIL entitled "How to feed 50
people for a 4 day conference - Logistics and Lunacy" ;)
And thanks to Julio for offering to help, even though I didn't get to your
email. there's 2moro. :)
Here's some pix of how much food we got for the 4 breakfasts, lunches, snax
and 1 dinner. Yes that is 30lbs. of sushi rice!
Now it's time to cook the night away in the night kitchen while listening
to Patti Smith!
My roommate is selling his old makerbot (millbot ?) 3rd gen 3d printer w/ slide for $600 or best offer. Email me for more inquiries.

Hey everyone--have any of you heard of the San Jose SubZero festival?
It's Friday, June 7th and celebrates the underground. think mexigoths, fire
sculptures, rockabilly bands and skaters and street art!
Yes--I know it's weird.. it's San Jose! we all have a lot of ideas about
San Jose. I was there for about two years and the people running the
subzero are very legit. Despite the high rents, fairly cookie cutter
atmosphere cherri + brian from anno domini have been keeping the
underground alive... they also run the $5 for art tuesdays and support low
cost local events by local artists down there.
*cherri isn't making money off this--none of her crew is. they break even
every year... *
*if anyone is interested in carpoling with me down to san jose to have a
table or do some crazy art projection experiment, let me know. I'll be
chatting with people about this.*
*san jose is highly suburban and has especially high rent prices,some parts
worse than san francisco. the arts have a tough ttime down there, despite a
nice downtown layout and a university.*
*subzero festival makes things easier... they were asking if we wanted to
do a game/play/experiemnt.*
*it's in june... so would love to get in conversation with folks about this
*SubZERO Festival: *First Friday June 7th., 6pm-midnight

Hi! It's time for our annual convergence of all you *Progenitors of Culture*
It's been a very tough year for everyone, and yet, here we all still
are....we have not wavered in our determination to be who we are, to live
the life we dream of and build the city we want to live in.
The 6th Annual SubZERO Festival is one of the most amazing celebrations of
the indie, DIY, subculture and counter culture experiences and it's
because of YOU and we want you back this year! Your participation shows you
don't just "do" art, but you ARE an artist and you're in it for a long term
life and career. We have had many success stories result from the festival
- we've had participants use the momentum of the fan base they've
cultivated from SubZERO to launch their own brick & mortar store fronts of
their own, works of art are in homes of collectors and artists have been
invited into other active collectives, indie entrepreneurs have had their
product picked up by big retail brands and the festival has served as a
catalyst for artists to receive national/international inquiries to show
And don't underestimate that the crowd will be "the same" - San Jose is
notorious for new surges of residents from all over the world to work in
the tech industry we're known for (and seems to be flourishing once again)
and these new comers experience the perception that we're a cultural
wasteland....NOT TRUE and this festival changes those perceptions
immediately but we can only change those perceptions if you're out there to
That's what we do....we create and inspire and thrive. And we do it *
----------------------------------------- 2013 SubZERO Festival
It's our annual gathering of the Progenitors of Culture otherwise known as
the Sixth Annual *SubZERO Festival*!
Focused on emerging and present subcultures thriving in our region, SubZERO
is a DIY, artistically bent, hi/lo-techno mashup where street meets geek.
You're receiving this first round of invitations because we are grateful to
you for your past participation. You've helped build the festival into a
highly anticipated celebration of subculture artists, performers & creative
indie businesses. You've been here all day, every day, all year long doing
what you know to be the most challenging thing in your life but you do it
with determination and uncompromising values. This is the night we get to
share that work and know that there are others that appreciate it, get
inspired by it and want to connect with it. You push the arts, culture and
humanity forward, and so "thank you!" in advance for not just this one
event, but for all that you do always.
Like last year, this festival is DIY....We all bring it to make it happen.

I was browsing the web and I stumbled across an ancient script detailing
the coming and going of Jay.
I think there's even kimchi in there.
Behold! he is emerging from a 3D Printer... emitting holy beams of ABS...
[image: Inline image 1]
Jordan recalibrated the 3D printer last night... so now you can see the
before and after. resting on the holy script from HIS hand...
[image: Inline image 2]
when will Jay return to us?
what can we do to avoid disappointing him?
<3 it will all come in time...
