MonikaW [to LeeG]: you can come as well?

for the oudeis team, so that not everybody has to stay during the whole
MonikaW [to DanZ]: btw, could you mail me bryans email address? I would
like to contact him
RainerF says, "I'd like to mention that I'll have to leave this club in
about an hour ..."
DanZ [to MonikaW]: I would suggest putting together a plan. What you'd like
to do, proposed schedule etc. nothing complicated. I could use that and see
if it fits any grants out there
DanZ [to MonikaW]: will get Bryan's e-mail address for you.
DanZ [to Oudeis Recorder]: TEAM How goes plans for Ars Electronica?
MonikaW [to DanZ]: I made a rough shedule (an excel sheet) I could mail

MonikaW [to DanZ]: so we have to write a schedule of linz right?
MonikaW asks, "and with that everybody can try to get local grants?"
DanZ [to MonikaW]: nothing big but just a little plan. You'll be able to
use this plan for a number of things...local grants...make your sponsors
happy (they see that plans are going forward, etc) you'll be surprised
DanZ says, "it can also be used for publicity and announcements""
MonikaW nods "ok that should be easy
MonikaW asks, "could be something like I already posted on the lists?"
DanZ [to MonikaW]: one page not more...a picture or some nice graphic would

[censored], I need to have a break, I can't show up that early."
MonikaW [to LeeG]: so there is nothing really new in this mail i sent i think

RainerF says, "And I'd like to leave in a few minutes, need to go home and
have a nap."
LeeG [to RainerF]: You are talking to a lot of people who need naps

responsibility for the script in conjunction with you, monika and ulli
rewriting it and then having me go over it again?
GernotL [to LeeG]: so we can say we have a lot of time to try experiments
MonikaW asks, "so these scenes will be developed by you and me?, gernot?"
GernotL [to LeeG]: yes, its a good idea
MonikaW nods her statement was too late
LeeG smiles at Mon
LeeG [to GernotL]: So, the prologue and several scenes would be developed
by you, mon and me?
LeeG asks, "In time for Linz?"
GernotL [to LeeG]: sure
GernotL [to LeeG]: i wood like to do like this
LeeG asks, "and this would be using many of the ideas and concepts from my
first draft, correct?"
