> Hey everyone,
> As you know the OccupyAustin (OA) IT team has been offered a free semi-private workspace by Tex Mitchell [ LinkedIn, @TexMitchell ] of AllCity Technology through the month of November. Tex is an amiable old hacker who supports the spirit of the occupation and finds himself in a business transition such that he can make some space available within reasonable constraints. The space available to us includes a meeting room with whiteboards and two small offices which are currently full of years of accumulated homebrew ISP gear. AllCity will continue to operate 8-5pm through the month of November, so we will have to respect that fact. Tex indicates he would prefer we operate during normal business hours as he has a family and his own commitments. We will not have a building access key to begin with, but Tex has stated he can be there to open the door within 15-20 minutes of notice. Boyd and I are on the hook for the IT team's behavior. I suggested Tex sit in on our meetings so he can get to know us and we can begin to develop trust towards being able to work after hours.
> Towards that end, Tex suggested we meet tomorrow at 6pm after hours at AllCity. Everyone who can be there should be there. This is a unique opportunity and we should demonstrate our interest in making the most of it. Plus the IT team really needs to come together as a whole and discuss what we are doing and where we are headed. There are 32 members on this mailing list; I know you all have good ideas and we have barely afforded ourselves the opportunity to tap into our talents. FreedomTower is cool but it's just one facet. OccupyApps is blossoming and will be awesome. We need help provisioning for the Radio team. We can float a livestream from a balloon/UAV. We all have more ideas for how we can contribute, so bring them to this meeting.
