Committee Reports


Mancinicomm wants permission from the instrumentality to do the thing. We contend that because we stamp books, we might as well stick a bar code on them. Putting book tape down first will be taken into consideration.

We will order barcodes and stick them on foreign-language books.

Declaration of intent: Mancinicomm will do the thing.


Do we trust hours-held reports? We should be doing something. Idea: theftcomm should print out a graph.

Could print out normalized graph: the point is to show outliers. We could also cut off outliers at 2 standard deviations to avoid skewing too much. This will generate a bar graph showing keyholders TIF score over time, to print out each month, posted in old TIF spot.

Motion: Run this by theftcomm and implement.

7-3-1 plus Spehn

Motion passed. BING!


Old Business

Sasha's favorite dinosaur is some normcore thing like t-rex.

The first female MIT student was also the first female MIT professor and also she helped build most of Eastern Cambridge's water system and now it's a very steampunky museum so they hold a bunch of sci-fi events there.


New Business

Let's print more bookmarks.

Motion to add a subsection dealing with business from alternate timelines.

4-7-1 plus Spehn

Motion fails.

Alternate timelines are kept firmly in their home dimensions.


Future Business

Someday Xavier will die. Hopefully not too soon, because we need prentices.


Motion to officially designate the chain-mail banana a book

13-1-2 plus Spehn

Motion passes Meeting adjourned, 67.2 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Rachael Skye, Onseck
