Meeting Minutes




Scribing and Minute Taking

We use IRC for scribing and minute taking. People who use IRC often may download an IRC client.

If you are using IRC only for this meeting and do not want to use a client, you can connect to our channel using your browser by following the link to our WAI Curricula IRC channel

IRC and Scribing Tips

When you join IRC, indicate that you are attending the meeting by typing:
and the bots will create a list of attendees based on everybody's present+

Daniel will set the necessary bots and put the agenda in the channel before the meeting starts. If the scribe wants to check the agenda, he/she can type:
zakim, agenda?
and zakim will return all the recorded agenda items

  • To set yourself as scribe type
    scribe: Your IRC Nickname
  • To record what is being said, type the name of the person speaking, a colon, a space, and a summary of what he/she said
    John: I like this approach.
  • If the speaker continues to speak after you recorded the first part of what he/she said, you can use three dots (...) and continue to write what they say
    ... and I am very glad that you mentioned it.
    The bots are smart enough to still attribute this to the person speaking without you having to enter his/her name
  • To get to the next agenda item, type
    zakim, take up next
    and zakim will print the agenda item it has taken up
  • To take up a specific agenda item (for example item 4), type
    zakim, take up agendum 4
  • To add an item that is not in the agenda, type
    Topic: Newly added topic
