Our first Meeting: What we discussed

At our first networking meeting ever, we discussed our individual vision of an ideal city. Also, we talked about our goals for the network; what we hope that the network will offer; how we hope to support one another's projects, what resources we want to develop etc.
Thanks Ashley for pulling these notes together:
