Triathlon Graphic

We can't decide between the athletic icons and Brandon's family "athletes" so Brandon will send out a version with the latter tonight and we'll choose between them

Timing

Extend the unconference to the full day on Saturday?

  • Or at least assume people will hang out on the beach that afternoon

100yss 2012 symposium

Sept. 13-16 in Houston

  • It's nascent, so we could become a regular presence
  • Interesting mix of people ... sci-fi authors, anthropologists, engineers, philosophers, etc
  • The Sanders think they can work it out
  • Ben isn't sure it works with his schedule
  • Eric is scared of going to Texas

Evaluation

  • Brandon ... rushed, too many things going on, but I'm excited ... if everything is important, nothing is important ... possibly unsustainable
  • Shelley ... feel better about the triathlon, makes me feel better when I know the plan, feel a little overwhelmed ... an hour of email time I'm going to have to come up with out of my sleep time.
  • Eric ... amazed by how much we as four people are doing, and I think it's great!
  • Ben ... staggered by how much there is to do, hope I can live up to it or something.
