Reworking the notes

We generally tidy the notes for readability and clarity. As we don’t promise a verbatim record, use your judgment to:

  • reorganize the notes so that the content flows logically for the reader (even if it didn’t do so on the call)
  • cut out digressions in the conversations, or simply mention that they took place
  • reword what people said so that their meaning is clear (especially if it took them some time to discover what they were trying to say)
