April 20, 2002

The following members were present in the Baen's Bar Chat Room.

Chair called the meeting to order at 1:11 p.m. CDT and declared a quorum.

The minutes of the meeting of March 16, 2002 were approved unanimously.

  1. Website
    1. Should the site be submitted for listing by Yahoo!, Altavista, etc.?
        Discussion -- good idea. Does it cost money? Poggiani to investigate, report. Consideration and voting by e-mail approved.
    2. Should reciprocal links be pursued?
        Approved unanimously.
    3. Should newspaper publicity be sought?
        The organization is not ready. Maybe later. Table for now.
  2. Jimmy's Computer

Due to the difficulties with the chat room and the oddities of e-mail, everything else on the agenda (particularly the t-shirt fund-raising) was postponed to the next meeting.

The next meeting will be held on May 18, 2002.

In the absence of Janet Dailey, these minutes are submitted by Pam Poggiani, May 15, 2002.

Website Report, submitted by Pam Poggiani, April 17, 2002

The site is up. With a couple problems:

I'm working on checking for dead and changed links, and adding of new links. When I get all the pages done, I'll send them to Luis, Webmaster, to put up.

Approvals needed:

  1. May we submit our site to search engines for inclusion in their databases? Yahoo, Altavista, etc.
  2. May (can) Janet, Contact Coordinator, ask (nearly) all of those whose URLs are links are on ReadAssist.org pages to include our URL as a link on theirs?
