Community Calls: Every Thursday 11:00 Brussels Time

Every week Edgeryders hosts a group video conference call to welcome new people in the community, as well as get up to speed with what is going on and where help is needed. We document the sessions and post them online in the weekly blogposts about what is going on, and where people can jump in to help each other. If you know someone who should be in this call but isn’t, go ahead and invite them!

If you want to bring something up at the next group conference call, just post a comment here before the event to give us time to coordinate a bit. See you soon!

Join the hangout:

Agenda for today’s call

Today we are kicking off the work of building lote4, the fourth edition of our much anticipated annual event. Wha’t

1. Most of today’s hangout call will be dedicated to:

  • Identifying main things that need doing within the key task areas (still missing from that list are "local event coordination and outreach" as well as "Travel and accommodations").
  • Breaking them down into tasks to be done before, during and after the physical event.
  • Building a budget for the event based on the above.  
2. If we have time we will discuss: What information do we need to communicate about the LOTE event and what makes it special? To Materani? To stressed out people running meaningful projects that can do with a little help? What are the key points that any and all communication needs to get through? How do we get it spread with no resources?
We need to produce a series of blog posts introducing the event, calling for projects, calling for problems, a twitterstorm etc. As well as some communications materials: flyers calling for people to join the count on me lists, the community calls, and the different task teams. The first one is urgent, ideally it should go out tomorrow!
3. How do we engage people to join the count on me list and submit headlines? Any creative ideas?

Would like to check in on the latest but will be 2am for me here

Will try and plan better for next weeks call…

Time to catch up!

Hey, anyone else joining tomorrow? All welcome, we usually start by doing a round of introductions, filling people in on latest that’s happening on Edgeryders -online, in Georgia, Matera or wherever there is some action, give each other advice, plan BIG etc.

Looking forward to seeing you, here are summaries from our last week’s calls, if you missed those.

1st of May

Hello! 1st of May might be a holiday for some people, and I’ll be a bit busy as I’m co-organising OuiShare Labs in Paris at that time, so possibly some of us can’t make it, but for those who have time and good will, please use this space to meetup, to keep the rhythm :slight_smile: @mishek and @Vidrij Da can you make it ?

Ok let’s do this :slight_smile:

I’ll make an extra effort to be there on time, now that (some) unMonasterians might show up too…

Proposed agenda is

  1. introducing our Twitterstorm events to new Edgeryders and preparing next week’s futurespotters global storm announcing our June event in Tbilisi; seeding discussion is this conversation

2. tightening up coordination between unMonastery and Edgeryders - especially the communication agency; seeding the discussion is this conversation

Anything else we are missing @Ben? @Inge? @Hazem? @Nadia? @Vahagn? Please add your own points if you’re joining. See you!
