  • ChrisJ has been working on an SQLite data structure
  • Matt began refactoring the wiki navigation
  • Laney Coding Club, Oakland Public Libraries as possible locations
  • Head of Oakland Public Libraries is into sudoroom. We can contact Marina for connections to them! (maybe Jenny sends them an email??)
  • Let's have a workshop! First Saturday of December! At Sudo!
  • November is officially Play With Your Node Month!
  • Marc investigated relay and exit nodes. The relay nodes seem like they might be $17/month. For an exit node we may need to find a hosting service that supports an abuse contact listing. The cheapest exit node option he found was $150/mo. We might be able to use the relay node vps for an exit node for now.

Discussion on Incorporating

  • Coop Pros:
   **Can have shares, require people to buy shares to be a member and have the right to vote
   **One person, one vote (regardless of # of shares) - possibly you can only have one share? where a share = membership
  • Corporation Pros:
   **Power is dependent on how many shares you have
   **We can still write heterarchy into our bylaws
  • Membership:
   **If you have a node running you're a member
   **Two classes of membership [or multiple - say, Member, Associate, Honorary - or Organizational Partner / Worker Maintainer / ]
   **Application Process
  • Need to differentiate between PeoplesOpen & SudoMesh


   **Corporation or co-op
   **Profit or non-profit
   **Declare Public Benefit or Mutual Benefit
   **Specific purpose of the corporation
  • Non-Profit Corporation, ?? Benefit


   *Jenny: 501cX --> anything other than 3 just makes it more difficult to get grants...
   *Vian: Changes to the bylaws are easier in a 501c3 that can drastically divert the purpose [can be changed by just the Board of Directors]
   *Matt: Can still replicate the requirements of a coop with a nonprofit or sole proprietorship
   *Shake: Wary of the non-profit industrial complex 
   *Luciano: Also wary, but thinks its good to enable people to make money while also including everybody
