Teri reported that the grant request was on the consent calendar for this evening's Council Meeting and was expected to be approved without comment. Teri planned to be present for the relevant part of the Council meeting.

6. Spring Classes - report (Tsui Chang) 

Tsui reminded the board that she has put up a list of potential classes on Google Docs for everyone to review. She noted that we can only offer classes for which we have volunteer presenters and asked board members to volunteer to teach one or more classes and to suggest other useful and relevant topics especially if they might be willing to teach them. It was noted that we should think carefully about topics that would be useful and relevant to the work we will need to do for the City Media Grant. Tsui will keep the Google Docs material up to date so that board members can check in periodically.

7. Internet History Project - report (Bill Buchanan) 

  Bill reported on an idea that arose from a conversation at the last DCN Executive Committee meeting. The suggestion is that DCN initiate a project that would involve other community organizations and individuals in order to create a multi-media "Internet History Project: Davis Chapter." (Tentative title)  Bill will draft an explanatory/descriptive paragraph of the idea that could be used when talking with potential partners.  He will also have a conversation with Jim Becket of the Hattie Weber Museum to gauge potential interest. Kimball noted that we will have a lot of work to do on the City Media Grant and so if this history idea goes ahead we will have to pace ourselves carefully so as not to become overwhelmed.
