This post comes to you in four parts.
Part 1: Net neutrality wins!
Part 2: Logo Contest Winners!
Results indicate that Taylor's logo received the most votes with Alli and Imani/Jeilynne tying for second. JFunke will put together a few versions that combine elements of these three images for a second vote.
It's that time of year when we dig into more complex projects. It's wonderful that the group is so popular, but projects are impossible to do with 40 chatty nerds. JFunke proposed splitting the group into two parts, which would happen on different days: Social Nerdfighters and Project Nerdfighters.
Social Nerdfighters would be less structured. We would start with a VlogBrothers video, but then nerds would be free to socialize and work on whatever they want.
Project Nerdfighters would be much more focused and would require nerds to sign up for specific projects and commit to attend for those meetings. Projects would include robotics, e-textiles, t-shirt printing, and more, which require purchasing expensive supplies.
The nerds in attendance used a Socrative poll to let JFunke know whether they wanted to only attend Social Nerdfighters, only Project Nerdfighters, or attend both.
Only Social Nerdfighters: 2
Only Project Nerdfighters: 9
Surprise! Behavior at meetings does not suggest this, so maybe instead of separating them we should make meetings 90-105 minutes instead of 60 minutes. That allows for 20 minutes of hangout time and a full hour for the project. We will vote on that at the next meeting.
Longer meetings or two days a week?
