  • Central Booking---people who know maps will flag--sara will send off to central booking
  • Nitin’s class at Parsons


  • what is up with Uganda? See recent email from Chris C. but do not forward. As Mathew articulated, we have individuals who are part of the greater Public Laboratory community - beyond us 7 staff - who might seriously consider this, but the contract would need to include a percentage going back to PLOTS organization. The position is targeting an individual rather than a group at the onset.

Sara is going to contact Leif, to follow up.
