  1. Register on Edgeryders, join the ongoing discussion (we have that already in the LOTE5 group)
  2. come meet us for community calls – coffee and cookies at the Edgespace in Brussels + global Edgeryders on Google Hangout. (we need to agree on the date of the next one).
  3. "call a human" (at least 1 Antiheroes + 1 Edgeryders). 

COMMS: Kira has in mind two Antiheroes that could lead the comms team and will talk to them. Deadline: Let’s say November 20th, but flexible.

I kinda liked Neomi’s Failing Forward the other day

it sounds like fastforward a little

I also think the text needs to be thought together with an image

this would allow more irony…

perhaps some spin on Rapid Prototyping

Exit;Fiasco, right?

Alberto Cottica

10:40 AM

EXIT: FIASCO I ment

It’s good to be aware of different connotations, not to make it sound confusing …

but we could take some time to brainstorm more on the name and come up with something direct

do we have a place ?

maybe it could also fit in the context of the place

so it speaks for itself

Alberto Cottica

10:43 AM

Not yet, it will be in Brussels but we havent deciede on the venue

Dorotea Mar

10:43 AM

ok

unConference - Open Space

besides some more formal activities , like talks , but not to overwhelming , more unstructured

I agree with stb

Marco Manca

10:46 AM

I agree with the unstructured approach as well… unless you have a specific outcome that you want secure, in which case some over structure is unavoidable

Dorotea Mar

10:47 AM

real-time feedback yes

it’s also good to have a place/venue that people can have long sessions and stay longer

to facilitate for the group to stay together

also it would be good to have meals there if possible

Alberto Cottica

10:48 AM

Doro, can you start a Gdoc or Piratepad so we take notes there?

Dorotea Mar

10:48 AM

ok

Alberto Cottica

10:48 AM

My machine is allocated for the Hangout, sorry

Marco Manca

Dorotea Mar

10:50 AM

http://piratepad.net/x1GYnBLOHu

( they are a bit more user-friendly )

Your camera is off.

Dorotea Mar

11:01 AM

yes people can propose themes before the event so we can get involved in conversations

me

11:01 AM

+1

yes we “hit the ground running” when we start things beforehand

Marco Manca

11:02 AM

Agree

Dorotea Mar

11:02 AM

yes so we know what we’re going to talk about

me

11:03 AM

Should we suggest a certain timeframe to put the calls to action up?

e.g. second half of January?

YEah, let’s reuse the infrasrtucture ER and Antiheroes already have

Maintaining infrastructure is costly

Marco Manca

11:22 AM
