Hey Kotra,

Yeah, Thursday @ 7:00 p.m. sounds good. I can even come out there if you wish since I now have a bus pass.

Maybe we can also look at modifying the Occupy Portland event template to include Twitter and Facebook buttons via the TwitterFBLike extension (which I installed yesterday). Here's an example of how I incorporated it into an upcoming event.

You could come out here if you want to, but for myself I don't mind coming out there. I enjoy getting downtown once a week.

I think I want to talk about the Facebook and Twitter "like" buttons. For years I've strongly resisted adding those on PortlandWiki because of the tracking Facebook (and to a lesser extent, Twitter) does on anyone who visits a page with a facebook "like" button, regardless of whether they click on it or not. http://www.geek.com/articles/news/facebook-like-button-tracks-you-even-if-you-dont-click-20110519/ It is pretty important to me to not inflict that invasion of privacy on other people. There are alternatives, where you can add facebook and twitter "share" buttons with no tracking except when you actually click on them. For example EFF does this on their press releases: https://www.eff.org/press/releases/mandatory-black-boxes-cars-raise-privacy-questions
