[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: we are probably going to have a fundraiser in fall
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: (for what??)
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: and there are no plans set in stone, but
[4:43pm] Markie996_: jury appointment - mania
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: there are some ideas being kicked around
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: that we will need people to "viral" the internet
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: lol
[4:43pm] Wiki_Blue: i need to know, who I can get a serious commitment from comproj to help with fundraiser
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: (ie, they can dedicate like 5 hours a week or so)
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: i think the activities will be fun
[4:44pm] Greeves: What would this involve?
[4:44pm] Markie996_: to do what??
[4:44pm] Markie996_: spam people??
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: well, thats the thing
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: there is nothing set in stone yet, so until there is I don't want to say "this or that"
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: but essentially spread the word on the internet
[4:44pm] Wiki_Blue: so maybe email friends, or post to selected blogs
[4:44pm] cary-office: Markie996_: she's not on the jury any more
[4:45pm] Wiki_Blue: or huggle people
