Hybrid Meeting Minutes 10/23/04


In attendance: Tim Brandon, Jim Cloer, Maggie Emery, Eric Hettinger, Brian O’Neel, Michael Pence, Jim Ward, Evan Waymire

What we did today:

We worked on nailing down the philosophy and general goals for the LOX/Paraffin project. We partially went through the compiled list of everyones goals to try to come to a consensus. We did not make it far but we plan on dynamically modifying this list during the coming week and then meeting a week from today (Saturday at noon (10/30)at the Market street Mc Minimums) to discuss it again in detail.

If you're a hybrid team member please make your changes to the following Philosophy and General Goals list:
Enter new material in BLACK. Do not delete old material. Move old material down and color it RED.
