[15:43]	<schiste>	ok
[15:43]	<Open_Research>	my masters had some business courses in it
[15:43]	<Open_Research>	it was half engineering, half engineering management
[15:44]	<schiste>	ok
[15:44]	<schiste>	But it's, basicly, a scientific master ?
[15:44]	<schiste>	or a "melting pot" of many different fields?
[15:45]	<Open_Research>	a two-pot masters,
[15:45]	<Open_Research>	i had courses in science - Advanced Fatigues, Advanced Ceramics
[15:45]	<Open_Research>	and also courses like Team Management and Business Process Engineering

[15:47]	<Open_Research>	do you like the Arts?
[15:47]	<schiste>	Yes
[15:48]	<Open_Research>	this one looks interesting to me...
[15:48]	<Open_Research>

[15:49]	<Open_Research>	well you know, i dont think people are coming are they
[15:49]	<Open_Research>	?
[15:49]	<Open_Research>	perhaps it is time for us to have some rest
[15:49]	<Open_Research>	?
[15:49]	<schiste>	The point is I'm young, even if I'm skilled :)
[15:49]	<schiste>	Whatever thanks for your help
[15:49]	<Open_Research>	ah, right...!
[15:49]	<schiste>	but I'm sure I'll find something
[15:49]	<Open_Research>	well then all these things are maybe stuff to think about for later
[15:49]	<schiste>	yep
[15:50]	<Open_Research>	:-)
[15:50]	<Open_Research>	and St Martins is very cool indeed
[15:50]	<Open_Research>	sigh
[15:50]	<Open_Research>	I would like to work in a place full of artists
[15:50]	<Open_Research>	although I have a great place to work in at the moment
[15:51]	<schiste>	I don't really know yet what I wanna do
[15:51]	<schiste>	I'm also interested in Public Relations
[15:51]	<Open_Research>	it sounds like there are lots of things you could do!
[15:52]	<schiste>	yep
[15:52]	<Open_Research>	so are you thinking of taking a Masters degree ?
[15:53]	<Open_Research>	[earlier i thought you meant you already had one]
[15:53]	<Greeves>	Hi
[15:53]	<Open_Research>	hi there
[15:53]	<Greeves>	I forgot about the meeting.
[15:53]	<Greeves>	:(
[15:54]	<Open_Research>	i think lots of people are tired tonight
[15:54]	<schiste>	NoI don't have a master
[15:54]	<Open_Research>	but its good to hear from you...
[15:54]	<schiste>	but I think I'll work one more year
[15:54]	<schiste>	and then have my master
[15:54]	<Greeves>	What have I missed so far?
[15:54]	<schiste>	hey Greeves :)
[15:54]	<Greeves>	hey schiste
[15:54]	<Open_Research>	thats a great idea [we're just chatting Greeeves]]
[15:55]	<Greeves>	no meeting :( CPG seems to be dying
[15:55]	<Open_Research>	to Christophe [work experience before MBA is very very good plan.]
[15:55]	<schiste>	Yes, I think so too :)
[15:55]	<Open_Research>	Lets try and revive it next week - it is hard for everyone to have energy after Taipei
[15:56]	<Platonides>	er.. nothing
[15:56]	<Open_Research>	and Sean is on holiday
[15:56]	<Open_Research>	Isnt he?
[15:56]	<Open_Research>	hello there!
[15:56]	<Greeves>	I wonder where Sean is...
[15:56]	<Platonides>	seanw is away: I am away until Tuesday 14th August.
[15:56]	<Greeves>	Hawaii?
[15:57]	<Open_Research>	why did he not take us with him...?
[15:57]	<schiste>	Heu I don't remember where he is
[15:57]	<Open_Research>	;-)
[15:57]	<schiste>	he told me but I don't remember
[15:57]	* brown_cat	wakes
[15:57]	<Greeves>	Welcome :)
[15:58]	<brown_cat>	hey :D
[15:58]	<brown_cat>	i overslepd :(
[15:58]	<Greeves>	I forgot, so I came about 5 min ago... :(
[15:58]	<brown_cat>	lol
[15:59]	* brown_cat	pokes Open_Research into #wikimedia-stats
[15:59]	<Open_Research>	er.. help
[15:59]	<Platonides>	i suppose we can do like last week
[15:59]	<Platonides>	tell 'Meeting open', 'Meeting closed'
[16:00]	<Greeves>	I missed last week
[16:00]	<Greeves>	Was it dead also?
[16:00]	<Open_Research>	i think so - i think thats what sean said. I was not here also
[16:01]	<Greeves>	:(
[16:01]	<schiste>	Well we're in the very period when everybody is on holiday
[16:01]	<Open_Research>	yes, its that time of year
[16:01]	<Greeves>	I wonder if a message in [[m:Information thread]] would help
[16:02]	<Open_Research>	[?]
[16:02]	<Greeves>	saying that were actively recruiting new members and that membership is low
[16:02]	<Open_Research>	i think that would be a very good plan if it is the same next week
[16:03]	<Open_Research>	but given that everyone is recovering from Taipei, maybe a bit premature for this week - what do the others think?
[16:03]	<brown_cat>	yer :)
[16:03]	<brown_cat>	Open_Research: you been in the irc long?
[16:03]	<Open_Research>	er.... you can tell, cant you...?
[16:04]	<Open_Research>	;-)
[16:04]	<Open_Research>	i'm a complete newbie
[16:04]	<brown_cat>	xD I was worse
[16:04]	<Open_Research>	aw, thanks but i bet that is not true at all
[16:04]	<Open_Research>	:-)
