Notes / Todo list

We filled the whiteboard with ideas from the group, then categorized which tasks should be done within the next two weeks, next two months, and next four months. We also roughly assigned who would be working on each item.

If you want to work on an item just add your initials and get in touch. If you finish an item check it off with <s>strikeout tags</s>. Feel free to add notes to each item as well.
