Tweets from twitterstorm:

@unmonastery is about how to design a co-working project for 200yrs. While financial investment looks only at 30yrs. More right now at #unMon on Twitter press conference 


Mon 23 Sep Twitterstorm
As you may have heard by now, on Monday at 11 am there's a big big twitterstorm coming up :-) We have no idea how a press conference on Twitter is going to pan out, of course. But it sounds like fun, so we'll try it anyway. Can you make it? If yes,

Monday 23rd September at 10:55 am CET tune in on Twitter and search for #unmon hashtag. while you are at it, follow @unmonastery and @edgeryders. Retweet what you find interesting and dont be afraid to add your own personal note to the tweet. We come from more than 30 countries, so what if we translated tweets into our own languages?? 

All the instructions are here, see you in the storm :-)

a new post on Edgeryders: “Bring on the resilience crowd”

‘I learned to use the word “resilience” in Edgeryders’

‘I think it’s fair to say that the most cutting edge people in the European resilience crowd are either in the community or one phone call away from someone that is’

‘Well, it turns out that the Rockefeller Foundation is launching an initiative called Resilient Cities.’

Use this calendar as basis for daily email?

Hi [Dorotea] and [khushboo.b9], do you guys want to use this calendar as basis for a daily email one of us will be sending to our entire team? We can update this wiki together with creative messages, and take turns in sending email.  I can start doing it the next week… and then one of you can follow etc?

good idea :slight_smile:

Ok, is this going to be linked to a daily reminder?

Dorotea, thanks for posting this. I wonder is there someway of getting reminders of this, an email a day type thing? Also how often do we need to link to something before we know the word has really gotten around?

“how to” reminders

we have to think of how to post / send / instant update - daily reminders.

one nice way is to send dayly emails, more personal (than an automatic update)

so maybe we should:

  1. send daily emails

for dayly emails we could also use the mailchimp account to “schedule” the emails in advence. ( just short emails, not a newsletter)

but we can start with sending regular emails first

( I can set up a sub-list of mailchimp list , just for social media )

  1. make a post ( which will go to email also if someone is subscribed ) one per two days maybe.

  2. track the outcome with some good tools ( goo.gl links maybe ) + google analytics stats if we have access to it, to check if our strategy is working well and how we can improve it in the process

Email + platform notification from posts may be too much.

I say use this wiki only for our coordination amongts team leaders. When we update the wiki people don’t receive notifications, which is good. So what we would do is simply copy paste the daily content from here into an email.  that’s my suggestion at least. 

We can also put down daily analytics as they come in into this wiki, so we can decide afterwards which posts need to be re-pushed in subsequent days :-)

As for the rest of this Social Media Group, we can use it for longer insights, resources, coversations around progress and strategy.

Wrong link for Wednesday

Your links for Wednesday seem wrong! The text refers to a blog post, but instead the link leads to the /lote3 home page. Are you sure?

Fixed, thanks for the heads up!


Added some more links

I didn’t want to forget about them, so went in and added some proposals for this week, [Dorotea] it’s your call of course. To Wednesday’s link you can add another one, with maybe a different session someone is organising? thanks, and we’re in touch!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Thanks for updating :slight_smile: that’s helpful, update any time :slight_smile:

for tomorrow we can remind and announce the “new” #lote3 hashtag for those who did not catch up with it yet, i just updated the calendar.

It was on twitter already, but people can retweet this tweet to let everyone know about the new hashtag.

I also wanted to invite people to the travel arrangements group, so that they can start to arrange their trips together, and know who is planning to come from where.

What happened to the social media calendar?

I see it stopped after last Wednesday… did you guys migrate elsewhere? Where, so I can help too?

re-considering the concept of featured content

recently I was reflecting about the concept of social media calendar,

and as I am getting more familiar with activity on the platform,

I can notice that it’s quite active, and new things come up every day.

so I thought instead of a concept of calendar

we could actually use this space for featured content to share 

and people could pass by here and find something to share any time,

but still social media team would be encouraged to share some organic news with especially chosen content from edgeryders.

(via email)

This way maybe it could serve as a future reference for people who want to share something from edgeryders but don’t know what to share.

It could be also used for “greatest hits” - selection of good posts on the platform.

maybe everyone who has a suggestion of a good featured content with a message, could put it here, it could be some kind of PR for edgeryders and also could be used for the “twitter press conference” and other communication in the future.

in short: instead of putting the content to share for a specific day, we could share here our proposals of the “greatest hits” and only in specific moments when its relevant we could put some content for a specific day.

(content for a specific day would be sent by email)

this way this wiki could be re-used in future :slight_smile:

what does everyone think about it ?

We have that!

Drupal does have the featured content functionality. I have been using it to generate the “old” (New Yorker) home page that some of us are seeing. What you suggest is a sweet way to link that functionality to the social media team’s work.

Admins can, naturally, edit any post and make it featured (open the “publishing options” link and check the “Featured” box). I make sure all featured content comes with its own image, because the home page view needs a picture. If a picture is not there, I upload one myself as I feature it. If needed, we could create a new user role (“editor”, or something) that gives users the power to edit any node but not the other admin powers. This role could then be given to other people to help in this. 

At this point, we could generate your list. In fact, there is already one such: /featured. Featured nodes are shown in random order, but it would be a 2 minute matter to expose them in chronological order.

calendar - good to keep track

but on the other hand, the calendar is good to keep track on things , so with posts that are day - related  somehow, it’s good to keep the calendar updated , so let’s keep it .

also as a historical record so that we know what we’ve been posting around the social media .

unMonastery promotion

Welcome to the project (group) [Ben] (pinging you so you can find it)

Here is a social media calendar, we have been just talking about.

So I guess I will help with the promotion of the unMonastery as well :slight_smile:

(I have been doing it anyway since quite a while as you can see in some posts on the social media channels)

Instructions: If you want to feature some content

for a specific day: write for example : To Feature for Sep 10th link

(I’ll make a goo.gl link later - I have to make sure it does not create loops)

if you want to feature some content without date preferences ( with some time frame maybe ) you can just post: To Feature link

you can update a wiki or write in a post - a post is better because people get pings, if you just update wiki - no pings.

I will add you to the daily emails as well, so you’ll receive the emails from me.

Entered lote3 in Chefuturo’s Agenda del futuro


Not visible yet, but it will come.

tweets from the storm ?

Maybe we should use the tweets from the storm - so that people can still re-post them even after the storm ?

Can we post a link to the doc with tweets here ?

We can also collect tweets which ware not in the doc, so it would be a nice and interesting collection of tweets :slight_smile:

just a suggestion, but in this way we could share more (tweets) and waste less (tweets) a very eco-solution  :-)

Fleshing out the Guardian article together

Hi Dorotea and everyone. We could use help in fleshing out this article in the Guardian. I’d rather the community was not too strongly associated with only me so it’s important it’s from us all.
