-Serious consideration – Email Michael Dell.
-What we need to do? – Advertise the fact that we are sticking Dell’s name on everything we’re sending out.
-Suggestion: Write an official letter. Send letters to world wide and US corporate headquarters. Write it on official Cornell stationary.
-Next step: We need to get possession of some Cornell letterhead paper.
-How do we become a club and be non-profit at the same time?
-What will this do? – donations will be tax deductible etc. It will also make us look “official”
-Next step: Ben is looking into it?
