Scheduling our regular UX team iteration plan meetings

I think the no Fridays request is a good idea, and we might even want  
to avoid Mondays due to them often being. The one problem I see with  
scheduling the meetings up right next to each other is we've been  
trying to start doing a bit more preparation for the Sakai UI meeting  
(which will I think every other week will be dedicated to design  
patterns, and include other members of the Open Source Design Pattern  
library community), and this might make it a bit harder to do so. My  
preference would be to have a little time between the meetings,  
perhaps just a half hour? That timing could actually be perfect since  
folks would all be reminded we have a Sakai UI meeting coming up  
momentarily which could jog their memory to do any needed prep work.  
Otherwise, there are usually emails to be read. :)
