I have a few specific comments to reply to from the original thread, as well as a pitch for a possible collaboration.
This was the original conversation starter:
Here are my excerpt replies:
While it is helpful to acknowledge availability of budget, I think at this point we should steer away from mixing money with volunteer work until there is more clear governance documentation about Sustain OSS. A funded join effort is not something (I think) we are equipped to do at this point.
I admit I got carried away by wishful thinking in the last thread too. So, if we are securely privileged enough to pursue this as a joint volunteer collaboration, we can work together as colleagues and peers to organize some sort of deliverable or outcome.
Is anyone else interested in a 50 minute conversation to explore collaborative work?
I am not a designer. But I feel like if we have 3-4 folks interested and willing to help out with this, we try to facilitate an inter-Working Group collab. That could include exploration and brainstorming on what collaborative work is actually useful to produce.
Hi folks, there is one common date/time standing out so far in the poll:
3 June 2020 @ 16:00 UTC
I think it’s likely to happen then. I created a calendar invite and sent it to @jdorfman, @rachel_norfolk , and @Erioldoesdesign. If anyone else would like a calendar invite, please ask here or send me a message!
Some time zone conversions:
US Pacific: 09:00
US Eastern: 12:00
I am happy to facilitate. I can put together a draft agenda here before the call. Looking forward to talking with y’all!
Hey folks, looking forward to chatting in an hour! Sorry for a late agenda, but here is how I was thinking to structure our conversation today:
Explore personal interests and motivations for a collaborative project
Define a short-term scope to produce some sort of agreed deliverable
Map out a tentative plan for how to move forward after we meet
This is what I am thinking but of course, open to feedback and suggestions. I am hoping for today’s call to be more like a conversation than a work meeting. I think this will be fun and I am pretty sure we are all volunteering on this. So let’s make today an exploration, and figure out where we go next.
Hi folks! Just a brief update. Here are the notes from our meeting. I spent time after we met reorganizing and refactoring the notes, so if you last saw them when we met, might be helpful to take a quick scroll through here:
We can use this thread later to coordinate a follow-up call for our collab. Right now, I’m focusing on the new discussion thread. Later, I will kick off a new meeting poll when I have a little more bandwidth.
Thanks everyone for your enthusiasm and participation today!
Thank you @Erioldoesdesign! Since you got to this first, I think we can have the open discussion about badges over in that thread to avoid repetition. I’ll chime in over on the O.S.D. Discourse soon with some feedback.
@isaaczaraone thing that would be great as me and Justin try and push this forward, is you (as a designer) taking a look at the current sustain oss discourse badges and letting us know what you think from your design perspective, you can thinking about:
