08 Week 3

Week 3 has come and gone. We've lost a few scouts who realized the time commitment did not match their availability or interest level, but still have a solid team of 8 full/timers and 2 part/timers.

Project managers are hard at work itemizing,assigning, and attending to deliverables, with four weeks left. Site review meetings are being scheduled for the third week in August.   Students are initiating planning emails and organizing meetups outside regular hours, using IRC with fluency.  It is heartening to watch!

And plans are being made for a student-run web design company to take on paying clients come September.  Our first confirmed paid client will be Federal Street Books - look for a new site in October or thereabouts! (We need to finish our nonprofit sites first).  

Last week we talked about using Google Groups for project communications. Check it out on our Videocasts page:

There's a "YouthSpeak" (see image top left, and attached file) on Wednesday, 8/13 at the FHCC, 178 Industrial Drive in Northampton. I'm not sure what it's about ... but they'll be mentioning Tech Scouts and we ARE doing their youth council website so I reckon we should send someone.
