Super! I put together a meeting date/time poll here:

https://whenisgood.net/sustain/badges-osd-chat01

Please fill out this poll by Friday, 22 May and I will set up a call once I have a few responses.

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
  • London: 17:00

I am happy to facilitate. I can put together a draft agenda here before the call. :slightly_smiling_face: Looking forward to talking with y’all!

Hey folks, looking forward to chatting in an hour! :raised_hands: Sorry for a late agenda, but here is how I was thinking to structure our conversation today:

  1. Explore personal interests and motivations for a collaborative project
  2. Define a short-term scope to produce some sort of agreed deliverable
  3. 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. :slight_smile:

I’ll be there, but I’m extremely low spoons/energy today so I’ll likely be quiet - that’s not indicative of my general enthusiasm for this project though

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! :pray:

Thanks to the folks on the call! I love these opportunities for collaboration :bouquet:

I’m gonna re-post this thread into the Open Source Design discourse to encourage/signal boost those designers interested in this kind of project/topic.

Here’s the post on open source design’s discourse: https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/t/open-source-design-project-with-sustain-oss-badges/1843/4

I’ll make sure I ‘merge’ ideas into our working google doc :smiley:

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. :smile:

Is this project still open?

Yup! we’re just working across the open source design forum and here because of the ‘two’ stakeholders of the project. There’s an update from @jwf here: https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/t/open-source-design-project-with-sustain-oss-badges/1843/8

@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:

  • How they look
  • Consistency
  • What they are trying to help users to achieve/do
  • What is missing

You can find badges on your profile page so the URL should be: https://discourse.sustainoss.org/u/yourusernamehere/badges

Noted, @Erioldoesdesign I will kindly check them out.
