Too many cooks spoil the stew… hmm, this one needs some tweaking; the message isn’t coming through clearly enough. Anyone who’s got an idea, jot it down, then we’ll collect the notes and implement them on this page, which we’ll call Page One, and if you’ve got more of a vague sense, put it on another copy we’ll call Page Two. Then we’ll have Sara aggregate Page One and Page Two onto a color-coded Page Three, which we’ll send to the group email as a PDF, and people can chime in on the group email, which we’ll count as comments toward Page Four, which will be aggregated with Page Three to create Page Five, which we’ll then discuss it in a meeting tomorrow. I’ll bring bagels—someone make a list of what kind everyone wants and another list of cream cheese flavors.
