This page is a wiki, so if you were there feel free to edit it. You need to be logged in though…

Sept 4th

What we discussed was focused around the upcoming community event Living On The Edge the fourth edition:

1. Curating the program: where are we with case study collection and invitations for session proposals?

2. Communications: Twitterstorm announcement is up, help spread it? Takes place Tuesday, Sept 16th, at 12 PM CEST.

3. Teams, tasks completion -> earning tickets. @Natalia Skoczylas is starting to issue tickets to Edgeryders who have done collaboration work, stay tuned!

Call minutes are available here.

August 28th

The call was focused on creating a roadplan for the next two months, as we race to our 4th annual community event - Living On The Edge (LOTE4), also known as The Stewardship. Circa 40 Edgeryders joined their preferred team to help shape Lote and earn a ticket, so now that summer’s over it was a good time to tighten up. Call minutes available here.

June 12th!

A new hackerspace is being built near Lisbon (Dorotea has the juicy details), to the Linked Portable Profiles currently being built at unMonastery by team Pavlik and James Lewis, which would make it easier for people to participate in various online spaces without experiencing Network Fatigue.

On the social media team front, we are on our way to make it easier for community members to catch up with latest projects updates and share the work of tweeting and facebook updating - stay tuned as we launch a call for mailing list countonme signup.

With futurespotters in Tbilisi approaching fast, @Aden our videographer for the event is in the process of building a strong offer for everyone in attendance: a package - Communication Kit for each participant to leave with which would help them further their own initiatives.

Full call summary available here.

Summary of call May 8

Among @Noemi, @Ben, @K we decided to look closely where overlaps exist between the Viral Academy, unMonastery and Spot the Future in Georgia, Armenia, Egypt. This is mainly to be done through more efficient communication, helping people get a sense of project overviews and live developments. We want to connect them and the broader ER community, so we’re dedicating the next community call to a VA presentation of the methodology to see if organisations in Georgia or elsewhere can benefit from it. Concrete proposal for collaboration is here.  Also read full call summary.

Major happenings in Berlin: Caroline to present ProsumeTime, a project from the NextLearning research platform asking “What kind of learning culture is needed to move on to the next level?”

Mishek’s currently doing work around health self-organisation: what works in the real world? What context needs to be there for selforganisation and open culture to happen?

3 tasks to take on

  • Pending issue of notifications
  • We need a structured way to manage new content from Georgia, Armenia, Egypt so people in the wider community can see where help is needed. We're looking into what kind of overviews would be useful for connecting globally.
