2008.10.20 Meeting Notes


Davis Public Library

Project Reports

  • Installfests — The next IF should be November 8th. (The room still needs to be booked.)
  • LERT — No news.
  • Library — No news.

Other Business

  • Software Freedom Day — SFD took place September 20th. We held a successful booth at the Davis Farmer's Market, and it's estimated that we gave out 40-50 software CDs.
  • Election Changes — Bill Kendrick put forth a motion to alter LUGOD's Bylaws such that elections occur only once per year, at the October meeting (rather than twice a year, as has been the case in the past). Bill Broadley seconded the motion. A vote was taken with no objections, and one abstention.
  • LUGOD Elections — LUGOD officer nominations began today. Bill Kendrick was nominated to continue as root (president), and Nick Schmalenberger was nominated to continue as typescript (secretary). Voting beings at the next general meeting (November 17th).
  • Financial Report — No voluntary dues were collected, however we received a $200 donation from Tim Riley.


  • Michael Ogawa, Ph.D student in the Computer Science program at UC Davis, and member of the Visualization and Interface Design Innovation Group at UCD, discussed and demonstrated his 'organic software visualization tool,' "code_swarm".
