Hey gang,

I got an email from Bohyun Kim, who's on the WCC, asking if the question of the blog came up before the board.  I remember vaguely talking about it, but I was pretty out of it by that point (thanks, Sudafed), so I don't remember what the outcome was.  If one of you remembers, can you put it here?

Also, Cody, can you make this document public, please?

Thanks! Great meeting! 

Adriene and Colleen, we missed you.

My recollection is the blog stays for now.  WCC should look at an upgrade/refresh of the software.  I'm supposed to talk to publications about disussing how to drive more content to it.  Publications had responsibility for the newletter in the old days.  Blog could act that way again: member updates, etc.
