Dear All

Just a reminder about the call in a little over 15 mins for anyone who
wishes to join!

It's been brought to my attention that a 0 got appended to the agenda URL,
which should have been http://okfnpad.org/p/science-coord-20jan2014

Do check this out at your convenience if you can't make the call and I look
forward to speaking to some of you shortly.
