April 21 - 27


We would like to feature the following posts and conversations this week! The first needs to be done tomorrow already!

  1. This conversation about the information-related issues that face medical practitioners is eye-opening, but it would need to be simplified and refined into a call for action. It makes sense to do it now because we are going to be participating in a hackathon on the 24th and we would REALLY like to engage people to help us work on this! https://edgeryders.eu/t/epistemic-resilience-of-the-medical-community-a-proposal-that-just-came-through/13013

  2. Alberto’s writeup of the Surveillance Pandemic big group call](A surveillance pandemic? Results of the community listening post on risks for freedom in the wake of COVID-19) last week should be included in promotion. AT this point in time, this is THE topic in NGI and the subject matter is the point of focus for how the EC looks at covid-19 response. Essential reading.

  3. Alessandro is an entrepreneur in Yerevan at a standstill after providing #GIS services for tourism in Armenia: ’ I get anxious because I don’t quite know what to do with that, how to deal with it’ Coping with loss of work: A postcard from Yerevan

  4. Community co-housing in Brussels is responding to the pandemic by making its own disinfectant, installing a sanitizer point at the entrance and providing a neighborhood office! The Reef vs. lockdown: living in a co-housing space in a time of pandemic

  5. Federico is working on a course for educators, parents and children to learn to use VR technology in connection with analogue drawing to be creative and articulate themselves: What can we do together? Drawing on some Virtual Reality Dreams

  6. Edgeryders is a diverse community. In this conversation, a community tech helpdesk also provides long-distance relationship advice: Community Tech Desk: How to get connected

  7. ‘I lost all my payslips due to the corona virus. I’m lucky enough to have a security network around me that I don’t have to care for rent’. Learn about strategies to cope with loss of work

  8. Several of our Swedish community members have been hard at work producing protective gear for fronline healthcare workers in Stockholm: https://edgeryders.eu/t/making-smocks-and-visors-for-hospitals-at-blivande/13116. We have also been discussing why Sweden is facing this crisis so differently than other countries Sweden and #Covid19: Sensible or suicidal? .

  9. A while ago we launched a general invitation to join the community covid19 Response: https://edgeryders.eu/t/do-you-want-to-join-our-covid19-community-response-a-breakdown-of-edgeryders-activities-roles-tasks-and-workflows/12879/94. Now we have a call open for people who want to do a small but very impactful contributionStuck at home: What can we do to be useful in combating this Covid19 while in confinement?

  10. Edgeryders is a sprawling space. As soon as we collect a list of what is happening, it has already moved forward - but still we try :slight_smile: A summary of some of we have been discussing this month so far, and what is happening next.

  11. Amelia’s analysis of data from the conversations we have been having around the (surveillance) pandemic is definitely worth highlighting because it points to a much better kind of contact tracing than the one governments, funders etc are all chasing right now.

  12. Also, we have a couple of calls for freelance paid work out: Batch 1, Batch 2 and Batch 3

  13. Here the draft post for the ViConnect drawing Webinar by Federico:

Perhaps it is worthwhile to revisit some of these discussions and see what is relevant to the themes and topics at hand?

https://edgeryders.eu/c/knowledge/care-stories?order=posts

I am not fully sure how we should best format the updates in this wiki form and the more infor will be added the harder it is to navigate while editing in the post. Should we maybe add each week with the template questions as a replay instead? Is there maybe a function that can switch the order from latest to newest post for calendar announcement threads? I find wiki’s that you want to keep continuously updated can only have a limited amount of information.

regarding theses events as for calls, I would suggest keeping this post updated and refer to it as a source instead of updating in two places (it also doubles as an info site for the community):

Not sure I understand your comment.

Can I ask you to break down/structure it as list of questions or actionables - one per bulletpoint?

sure:

  1. Instead of updating recurring and planned one of the events in two places, could we keep it updated here: Community Calls Overview all over Edgeryders . Would remove the first two points from the template you provided here.
  2. I find that editing wikis with a lot of information here for a longer time, meaning not just as a one of to get note together after a call costs a lot more time than doing it in another format or as an answer because of the way discourse is formated. A shortlist like for the call overview works, but one with so many points might cost a lot of extra time navigating every time. Maybe we can post the updates as answers always using the template?
  3. General Discourse question: Is it possible to change the order of reply posts, so that the latest one would be on the top? maybe interesting for calendar threads?
  1. Sure, but add link to to it in :point_up_2:wiki every week to ensure it does not fall between the cracks.
  2. Sure, if you can make the template & form for doing so. But you would need to check with e.G Owen for how to display the results of such forms so that they are not messy/collected in one place.
  3. This is a question for the General Software Workspace. Maybe post there and repost answer here as a comment?

note: producing such a form template and the place where it is collected would have to be fast as the comms team comes onboard soon and needs to hit the ground running.

Fyi started to add things for this week <3

Thanks all. Between now and the 2nd of June there’ll be a heavy emphasis on pushing sign-ups for the two 3rd of June events (DeLabs webinar and food projects) across social; then after that I’ll be pushing the higher education session on June 22nd and general promotion for the main summit and other pre-summit events.

In terms of outreach i’m setting up social listening channels in hootsuite to monitor certain locations, keywords or phrases to help us build up our lists of potential partners or speakers. Let me know if there are any particular topics or keywords you think would be good to track.
