Thanks to everyone for coming.
I circulated blank 4x6 cards at the meeting, and encouraged people to write something on them. This turns out to be a good way to write up a meeting summary, and so I'm going to be ultra-lazy and just transcribe the interesting bits from them rather than describe what actually happened.
If you want something in next week's non-summary, make
sure you write it on a card. thanks!

By my guess the cards were a success, and I'll repeat that next week. The next iteration on that is to provide something that's not blank, and for that I'll be looking for inspiration from the Hipster PDA:
if you have any favorite, appropriate, or fun templates from that do let me know and we'll try to get some more cognitive artifacts for use then.
The missing link for the cards was something to write on them with. If your organization produces promotional pens, pencils, or other logo-inscribed writing materials, bring two or three dozen of them to the meeting and we'll
expand our inventory of user-generated media data capture devices.
