In case you managed to miss it we’re doing a lot of coordination around building #LOTE on twitter and through the new Edgeryders conference website. When asked why they are coming to the meetup in June two Edgeryders said:
‘My motivation for attending this conference is the possibility to co-design the future with the other attendees. I am also curious to hear what perspectives and ideas people have regarding the current situation in Europe, and the world of course. Looking forward to collaborate with everyone!""I am going to this conference because I look forward to, first and foremost, meeting intelligent, inspired people who are motivated to do something with the new class of online tools we have inherited in our generation. I see this conference as equally a moment in crowdsourcing — something may arise from all the activity from which we can continue our efforts moving forward..."
1. Checking my dashboard for missions to do and complete them.
2. Leaving lots of comments on the mission reports of others. The more I read and think about the contents of mission reports and campaign themes, the better I am prepared to have constructive discussions around identifying solutions worth exploring further. Also it’s a great way to make the most of the conference: by interacting around our experiences, ideas and questions we get to know one another ahead of the physical meetup and can make sure to connect with the people we especially should meet while there.
3. For myself I am putting together a summary of what I have learned from all of these mission reports and comments, and well as what reflections and ideas they inspire and bringing them to the conference. If you post them as mission reports for the Finale campaign you also make a valuable contribution by helping to preparing the background material for each presentation and breakout session so I’ll be posting a couple of those.
