    • Please don't edit Raphael's section or anyone else's section
      • Just write proposals like he did, in your own section
    • General behavior rules around classes
      • the other person that's allowed to interact with the class is the teacher, it can break flow, so PLEASE don't chime in
      • If you're the teacher, don't be late. Be there an hour ahead.
    • Price per class per student-hour set at $25
      • Split is 50/50 teacher space
      • Lab fee should be added on on top of that
      • Standard cut for a teacher is $20 an hour, our cut is GREAT compared to that!

    • Raphael showed his sketchup space layout, we all generally liked it, but had to rework the loft a bit, by lowering the righthand side to fit a human on the top.
  • Internets
    • Bring in quotes, we'll vote. Do we need static IPs?
  • Upstairs neighbors?
    • Possibly 9th floor neighbors! :) Fun!
