5. Internet History Project (Bill) 

Bill reported that a Google Docs document for this project has been set up. Jeff Shaw of DMA continues to be very interested in the creation of the project, which is planned to be a documentary showing the way DCN and a number of Davis Citizens worked to mould the way Internet technology was deployed in Davis in the early 1980's and how that influenced some of the ways the Internet itself developed.

Bill and Teri will now meet with Jim Becket of the Hattie Weber Museum and also with Jeff Shaw in order to firm up the basic idea of the project and develop understandings of ownership and roles. Next steps will include making a list of the people involved in the 1980's, their names, roles and current contact information.


6. Committee reports 

RAC: a) Jan Meizel reported that there are 5 requests for the RAC to consider in August. b) Jan asked the Board to clarify some of the issues that are addressed in the RAC guidelines. The RAC Guidelines are being reviewed as part of the RAC's responsibility for preparing a web version of a "DCN Resource-Tool-Users Guidebook."  

Web Team / Classes: Tsui Chang pointed out that DCN's Fall class series need to be planned now.  She will send out a request for ideas and volunteer presenters.
