>>> Re the coordination and creative proposals.
>>> Abe's proposal - sounds fantastic.
>>> Fix's proposal -
>>> I have some concerns with the way proposals are touted.
>>> To me, this proposal reads like it still favors working outside the

>>> What if your specific project isn't prioritized for a variety of reasons
>>> that could range from someone missing it on the 1000 email deep email thread
>>> we are all dealing with, to the interest level of other individuals in the

>>> people any level of creative satisfaction.
>>> Am I right in understanding that at least 3 people from the working group
>>> need to be involved to make a project a go?
>>> I think that's problematic.
>>> What if someone wants to work with creative's outside the existing working
>>> group. BUT the very nature of getting those people involved will bring them

>>> come to meetings before the project could begin? How many meetings? Just
>>> one? Just one meeting doesn't feel like active participation in the group
>>> to me.
>>> Anyone that's been part of the process for any amount of time has felt the
>>> frustration of working within the process.
>>> I absolutely agree that that needs to be dealt with, however, I don't
>>> think it's a good idea to require all projects to first be vetted, voted
>>> upon and prioritized by the group before they even begin.
>>> This feels a bit like creative castration by the process. However, I have
>>> not been at a meeting all week, so I know I have not heard the vast array of
>>> arguments for this proposal. I am all ears. I will be there tomorrow.
>>> I just asked that this not be pushed through without my voice being
