We should document which tools are used to organise which tasks in planning the osce-day- events. The idea is to enable us to create an open source toolbox for people to use when they are planning events, so they’re no longer dependent on commercial platforms like skype, google, facebook, dropbox etc. for sharing data, cooperating in writing texts and coordinating tasks. It will also make it easier in the coming years to organise the OSCE-Days and avoid common traps and frustrating time-guzzlers like miscommunication, forgotten items on the to-do list and double-planning.
My experience with event-planning shows that we would need to combine tools for communication, data sharing, decision making, task and progress documentation.
Currently I’m working on a questionaire to evaluate others’ past experiences. This should help open source developers (which I’m not) to know what we need.
Anyone intested in helping to write the survey questions, to translate them from English into other languages and to spread the survey to people who have event-planning experience is very welcome.
