For each Wednesday precept, we’ll ask for two volunteer scribes to take notes for an hour each, then email the notes to Rebecca in doc or txt format by the following Sunday. She’ll post them to the course Wiki, you will be the recipient of immortal gratitude from your classmates and countless others around the world, and you’ll receive extra credit (up to 1/2 of a homework assignment).
 
 
We'll post completed scribe notes up in the [http://wiki.cs.princeton.edu/index.php/PLOrk_spring2010#Tentative_precept_schedule precept schedule], along with the corresponding precept topic outline.
