Community Call 20th of August - Your chance to shape the Edgeryders NGI Festival!

Join our community call on August 20, 6PM Brussels time to find out how you can get your ticket for the Edgeryders Festival.

Join the call with this link: https://zoom.us/j/592769960

The Edgeryders Festival is a program of activities that take place in multiple cities in Europe. Tickets are not free of charge, but they cannot be bought for money. You can only get a ticket by working with the other participants to make it a great experience for everyone involved. Join this call if you’d like to be part of it.

About the festival: The Edgeryders festival is a co-created event, build by participants who work together in different crews.

At the Edgeryders festival you get to see what is happening, and how your own story is part of it.

You will meet people from all over Europe to share our experiences from trying to build good lives for ourselves and people we love. Everyone comes together to exchange experiences, and use the learnings to help us make better decisions. In our professional and personal lives.

Join this call to help shape the festival in a direction that interests you most.

From Maria@Edgeryders to Everyone: (08:13 PM)
I want to help you guys to coordinate to get together to realise events around the NGI topics and directly organise and help set up the event in Stockholm (great space) :slight_smile:
From Alberto to Everyone: (08:13 PM)
I am especially interested in the economic aspects of Internet infrastructure. Specifically, I care about how best make use of the property of information to be non-rivalrous: using it does not prevent others also using it.

From Alberto to Everyone: (08:14 PM)
I would like to explore how a new wave of Internet infrastructure can enable a commons-based economy, which is just way more efficient than the present IPR-based model.
From Oliver Sauter to Everyone: (08:14 PM)
Looking forward to talk in Helsinki :slight_smile:
From John Coate to Everyone: (08:14 PM)
I am interested in moving tech back to greater user control.
From Alberto to Everyone: (08:14 PM)
@Oliver me too, my friend.
From Zenna Fiscella to Everyone: (08:14 PM)
I’m interested in decentralisation, in all forms but my focus is on internet atm
From John Coate to Everyone: (08:16 PM)
It should be noted that Nadia is the chief organizer for the festival and she is out until later this week
From Noemi to Everyone: (08:17 PM)
Also: what is your experience with events so far?
From John Coate to Everyone: (08:18 PM)
also Zoom defaults to you being mute…so unmute before you speak.
From Noemi to Everyone: (08:22 PM)
Are there formats you have seen elsewhere which you liked?
From Chris Adams to Everyone: (08:22 PM)
Hi Folks. My current interest is in understanding the policy levers available to help decouple the use of internet tech and digital in general, from the environmental impact we associate with it, and also to see how to have. More diverse
From Alberto to Everyone: (08:23 PM)
@Chris: nice!
From Chris Adams to Everyone: (08:23 PM)
Damnit! Not finished. I’m looking for ways to promote a more diverse ecosystem that we work without such concentration of power and influence in a tiny number of actors
