##1 . Hi & Introduction Round

Are there new people? Let’s have a quick introduction round. And please everyone tell us how you are.
Paul attended, introduced his work. He will decide if he want to join BoST.

##2 . Future of OSCEdays

How to go on with the OSCEdays - How to reinvent it? Here is a topic with ideas to discuss


We like the new OSCE structure. Lars will update the website.
We still expect contributions to the topic, as per link above.

##3 . DIF Collaboration

Due mid-September, so let’s focus this call mainly on this topic. Here is a topic with ideas to discuss:


We discussed in detail Lars’ proposal. A physical event in Berlin in week 3 will be part of our proposal.
We decided to set-up a Skype call with Joe Iles and look over our draft with him. Lars is setting-up the call.

Erica, Lars, Silvia and Paul are interested in the DIF collaboration and can dedicate time to it. Depending on the funding available we will decide if we can participate and to what extent. Lars will start a budget topic.

Paul noted that he sees as a main barrier for OSCE concept and practice the ability of organizations, especially large corporations to scale it.

We agree that our community could have a significant role in connecting grassroots/makers/hackers with large corporations/major market players.

We can help individuals and organizations “do and dream”.

##5. …

Lars and the CRCLR Economy Network Germany had a good start with Veolia Water. They are very discussing to adopt OS to their existing CE initiatives.

Has anybody asked Melanie if she wants to be on BoST? It would be nice to have a representative on each continent, although it makes regular meetings more challenging because of worldwide timezones.
