My best recollection:

1. Proposed ID-Legal Conference -- Review of proposed ID-Legal Workshop goals http://wiki.idcommons.net/ID-Legal#Draft_Statement_of_Purpose -- Discussion of Conference Logistics --- suggested dates --- size limits and potential invitees --- location --- funding model

The draft invitation and a sketch of the proposed work (Mapping the Gap) are on for comments at: http://wiki.idcommons.net/ID-Legal

The current plan is to hold a small (< 30 person) conference in the DC area the week of April 13th. Tentative dates are April 14 & 15 to allow for travel on Monday the 13th. The meeting will be held within metro distance of downtown DC to optimize local participation.

ISOC will provide funding for the meeting and will also provide supplemental funding for scholarships for key participants who aren't self-funding.

2. Co-Stewardship -- Update from Scott David

Scott is our official Co-steward!

3. Discussion of proposed "Ask a Lawyer" blog.

There was lively discussion among the lawyers on the call re: the perils of offering legal advise on line and the suggestion was made that a blog that offered straw man cases and then explored potential legal issues might be both useful and more likely to draw input from lawyers.

4. TBD

There was general concern expressed about the short time line for the DC workshop and some support for holding an event in the fall which would give folks more lead time in planning their attendance.
