The new website is good. Much clearer.
Only question: Is there too much content on it?
Jose: Let’s add links to the menu that scroll you down automatically to the sections you are looking for.
Lars: will do.
3.1 Update BoST Roles
Julia will take over the newsletter.
Jose can get access to the website and build together with Lars the website team.
3.2.2 Outreach Subteams
Website Team: Lars & Jose
Sponsorship/Budget Team: Silvia, Lars, (Frans)
3.3 Global Event
3.3.1 Spread The Call For Cities
go for it!
3.3.2 - Should we ask local organisers to donate?
Yes. But it should not be included in the first call - but later. And it should not be mandatory.
Something like: we love donations, every penny matters.
There need to be a patreon link added to the forum as well once the Patreon is up.
If the budget is clear it should be communicated clearly. (Through Patreon?)
Funding Your Event – Topic - we need a better topic that gives people ideas about how to fund their local events - not just sponsorship brochures. There we can add/collect also valuable information about what Incubators to look for as an OS startup and so on. Lars will start the topic. We can add info there over time.
3.4 Writers Weekend
Ok. Let’s go with the name.
Could be “Workshops” a reward?
Sharon and Lars will work it out more. Let’s look at it in two weeks.
3.6.1 Ask 2017 participating cities for a small fee?
Covered above. Not mandatory. But we ask for it.
Should we open up a shop? We got a lot of good ideas and insights on this. There is a new topic for it now covering what we discussed and where we can continue the discussion.
LINK SHOP TOPIC http://community.oscedays.org/t/creating-an-oscedays-shop/5652
3.7 Canada Sponsorship
Nothing new. When local events in Canada pop up we will connect them.
3.8 Vision Exercise
@gien is asking for a Vision exercise for a while now: Where do we see OSCEdays in 5 years. There was never the time in BoST calls to properly discuss it. We (@gien) should start with a topic about it to have a pre-discussion. And then we set a clear date in advance to make sure there is at least 40 minutes time in a BoST call to just discuss this.
@Silvia will ask @gien to start the topic. If it works we should plan this discussion in an evening call in 6 weeks. So it would be March 20.
3.9 Project Management Tool?
Jose is showing us the project management tool “MeisterTask” he is using and suggests that we use a tool like that for BoST. It would make the work much easier.
Silvia, Julia and Lars agree. It also raises a lot of questions (what is the forum for and what not) but it looks definitely like something that would be very helpful.
Jose will research for Open Source solutions with similar powers than Meistertask (according to our policy to use the OS-solution if there is one that is good enough). So we can continue the discussion in the next call.
4 Circular Design Guide
Jose: The circular design guide is an interesting resource. We should share it. Build on it. And maybe even use some parts of it in BoST to brainstorm OSCEdays.
