Ezra: well said.
Mike

Quoting Ezra Kahn <[log in to unmask]>:

> Yes, it is definitely too soon to start designing sugar refiners.  But
> we still have some pretty basic "pre-design" questions.  Like, who is
> going to be involved in this project?  How are we going to meet and
> communicate with each other?  Should we create a CEMS account?  Use
> google docs?  What exactly do we cumulatively know?  What on/off campus
> resources are available to guide us?
>
> I, for one, would VERY much like to be involved in this project.
> However, I am still a fresh member to our club, and feel the need to
> officially meet and talk with those I hope to work with.
>
> My opinion is that established, regular design meetings, separate from
> club business meetings, is necessary.  I think it is also important for
> us, as a group, to work out what our questions are.
