The 2007-10-21 Meeting

I think the meeting at the beginning of Week 2 was a good one—because of getting a good outline of what the weekly assignment entailed and because some very positive community-building took place. It was also instructive to witness the last-minute adjustments that even Jeff and José have to make. I admire their being able to trouble-shoot and make fixes on the spot!
