Also - Zenna is going to be at

18th of July - DWeb in California around the 

8th to 15th of August - Bornhack 

21th to 25th, August - CCCamp

tagged Zenna in those events and added the DWeb. What I need from all of you is to fill-in the missing info for each event so that I can add it to the official NGI calendar for the consortium.

I filled in some about Dweb - turns out I know some of the organizers.

great thanks! do you have the information on what role Zenna will have at the event?

I think she is just attending but I can ask her.

In this case it won’t go to the consortium spreadsheet since we put there only the things we are organising or participating in as speakers, workshop leaders etc.

Right.

@marina: This list-style event format unfortunately does not work for our setup to publish events from this category to edgeryders.eu/events (details). Can you please split it into individual topics, one per event, and with a picture each. As an example, I contributed a topic for the first event.

Hmm so there is no way to have everything in one place? I think it is much easier to have an overview rather than opening ten different threads. I can in addition do separate posts but keep somewhere the timeline, or a summary like this.

@hugi can you describe what will you be doing (Edgeryders role) at the BornHack and the Radical Networks events?

Is it enough to say outreach, or does it need to be more specific? I’m exactly sure yet.

what it really means? you are just attending and looking for interesting people or you are intervening in a way - as a speaker for example

I have applied to do a talk at Radical Networks and and will also submit a proposal for a workshop at Bornhack, but neither are confirmed yet.

ok great, so I won’t put that it’s confirmed

Sure, that’s not a problem. You can for example keep this topic as the summary, keep it in this Events category, and link from it to the individual topics with more details. The only important thing is that for every event there is a topic with the event’s date and time.

If there are any new events you want to include in the calendar (or updates on these above) please let me know so that I can update in the official calendar before the end of the week when it will be shared with the PO. @nadia @hugi @zelf

Also, @zelf did you attend this event?
