Why is it that Tech and Stream teams meet in private at the Sports Page with no minutes or accountabiity. And don't say its because of Privacy issues as that's a lame excuse. I have a Tax Office and I know all about Privacy issues. Trancparency is just that. For all to see. Seems like all this is just a case of the Pot calling the Kettle black! Get over yourselves.
Tech meets off site for 2 reasons.
1. How many of you want to listen to us go on about how we're going to configure the linode in order to get our MX back online so that we can distribute accounts that will aid us in getting OSTicket off the ground so as to streamline effective communications? Or what about how we're going to utilize the Rukus equipment to direct a dedicated wireless network to the plaza from half a mile away? Or even migrating our domains to a different registrar and updating our DNS records, analyzing web and traffic analytics to ensure effective SEO practices?
Our discussions are purely technical in nature and there's no reason for us to confuse people with our tech-speak as it serves no one. We would end up spending more time explaining to people what we're talking about than we would solving problems and getting these systems online for all of YOU to use.
2. We also discuss and update each other on account information and passwords to which we have said time and time and time again we are not going to just broadcast to the whole world. We are dicussing sensitive information that in the wrong hands could bring down every bit of our communications.
Website, forusm, livestream, IRC, Facebook, Twitter, all gone in a keystroke beause the information wasn't protected. That sound like a good idea to y'all?
Not to mention the legal ramifications if the information we store and protect is compromised revealing the personal account information of our online members. Think HIPPA.
