Vote: Do we want to keep the Buzzwords category? Yes (unanimous)
Vote: Are we generally happy with the buzzword list? Yes (unanimous)

Recommendations for course websites for fall semester posted to various blogs (including this one).

- informal conversations?
- Information-gathering strategy? (Joe)
Action Item: Survey.
- Alex will set up in google spreadsheet.
- Think of ways to gather the information
