(Yes, I know you can do conferencing within Skype. I've done it. But not everyone who needed to attend today's call had access to a computer and as Skype account, but they did have mobile phones, so they dialed in to an ordinary conference-call bridge and I called the same bridge from Skype. At some time in the future when all of the participants have the right software and hardware we can do this as a real-time video conference, but a dial-in conference call is sufficient for now.)
SFSFC had a fairly long agenda today, and we did not get done until after 4 PM. Nothing really earth-shattering, but we have a lot of irons in the fire, and it takes time to work through all of them. Because of work pressures, it will take me a while (probably not until after SMOFCon) to get everything straightened out, but for the moment, I did get next year's tentative meeting schedule posted. I also did some updates to the SMOFCon 28 web site on account of our room block has expired and you can no longer reserve rooms at our discounted rate. I'd do even more, but I have to get back to work. Thank goodness I can do it from home and don't have to drive over to San Mateo this weekend.
