The TAG is scheduled to meet next week Monday-Wednesday Cambridge 
Massachusetts. We were aware from the start that due to the unusual number 
of open seats and several additional regrets, the meeting would be smaller 
than usual. The agenda also has less work on it than usual, in part because 
we have fewer members, and also because the TAG expects after the election 
to discuss refocusing our work. TAG members indicated a few weeks ago that 
they wished to meet anyway.

Today we received late regrets from one additional member. Attendence will 
therefore be in the range of 4-5. This prompted one likely attendee suggest 
that I consider canceling the meeting after all.

As a first step in that process, I have contacted each of the members who 
would be traveling from out of town. With the exception of one who has not 
yet replied, all have at least a mild preference for canceling.

Accordingly, I now wish to put the question to everyone who is involved 
including TAG members who are local in the Boston area and also the several 
non-TAG members who have kindly agreed to join us on Monday or Tuesday if 
we do meet:

	"Would you object if next week's TAG meeting is canceled?"

Obviously, we don't take formal votes using e-mail polls like this, but 
this is to inform you that if I don't hear any objections by tomorrow, I am 
likely to cancel the meeting. Please let me know ASAP, particularly if you 
want to convince us to meet after all.

Since I'm busy with other matters for most of tomorrow, I will also hold 
off on preparing a more formal agenda and local arrangements page until at 
least Wednesday.

Thank you very much.

Noah
