Reminder (ME included!) EOK meetings are intended to start at 8:30 AM on the dot. If we keep with that, we can get a LOT done in a short time...
Comment by Leonard Knight on August 28, 2009 at 5:35pm
Should we implement an egg timer or some other alarm system to keep the discussions moving? I love this format...this is how it all started. Each member getting the floor for a while to talk about their business, current project, hair-brained ideas, etc.
