I don't know if you've read Jeff's deep and hilarious piece on what our lives may look like as we age in a scenario where we increasingly rely on diy health care. Have a look here.

While browsing around a bit I came across a context and organisations that may be of interest for those interested in alternative care solutions to explore:

Meet other community members, learn what's happening in the community and ask for help with your own projects during the Weekly Community Call on Skype. 

To join the call: Add edgeryders to your list of Skype contacts so we can add you into the group call. 

What do we do in the calls?

Key UX issues and possible solutions

1. Keeping the key community infrastructures running: Website + Weekly Community News Headlines + Weekly Community Calls + Monthly blogpost from directors + Physical meetings (e.g. Edge drinks) + LOTE + financial dashboard. Should we hire community coordinator to ensure these elements taken care of? Other solutions?

#Countonme headlines - let's make this thing better

A few months ago Edgeryders have  launched an exciting experiment in our social media sphere, which was supposed to bring people together in the act of spreading the communal news, reaching new people who might be interested in joining or benefiting from what Edgeryders is and offers, and building a powerful network of sharers, who'd also send us their own communal news, so that we all make sure the important and val

Can Makerfox help Edgeryders to collaborate?

Alberto just made some observations about how the Edgeryders community colaborates, and that finding an adequate compensation mechanism could make such informal, network-mediated mutual support way more commonplace in our community. The same question was also discussed at LOTE3 regarding the development of this website (and lead to the Harmonious Hackathons idea).

At LOTE3 [Sam Muirhead] shot a 9 minute video interview with [Ben] getting everybody on the same page on the unMonastery. This is in itself a major contribution to the project; and its value was further enhanced by the community rising up to provide subtitles for the video in several languages. And I cannot help wondering: this is something really valuable. Over maybe three weeks, we had complete subtitles in nine languages, with two more under way. Could we do this again? Could we make it into a sort of service? Did a "translation team" somehow emerge from the act of translating? Should we try to work more in teams – like a foresight team, an engagement team, an events team and so on?
