      Having someone take minutes relieves everyone else of the responsibility
      to pay attention and remember. By all means, take any notes you need for
      yourself.

      If things are understood differently between people, that will show up
      in the next day's standup. People will get better at making sure
      everyone understands.

      Minutes may also discourage mentioning some issues, as the discussion
      seems more official when someone is recording it. You don't record all
      your conversations, do you? Think of the standup as a conversation among
      the team members rather than a meeting.
