Tonight we had a great meeting of the Circular Fashion & Textiles group here in Berlin, and there was a clear need for a method of discussion to work out whom to contact for help/participation, and to work out which person should be contacting them.
Rather than using email, I suggested an internal forum category, which seemed to suit everyone.
I didn’t feel like it made sense for them to share the Berlin-internal subcategory, as it will largely be a different set of people posting about different things. Similarly, I felt that for the development of OSCE Fashion & Textiles challenges and international discussion, it made sense to have an international category.
So I’ve now created two new categories, ‘Fashion & Textiles’, (under Global OSCEdays Teams & Organization, but coloured blue) and ‘Fashion & Textiles - internal’ for the Fashion_Textile Group (Sophia is the admin in charge of adding new users to this group)
So I kind of inadvertently created subcategories for particular themes which have Node Connectors. Does that work? I can move things around if not. I think we discussed it already but I don’t remember what we concluded.
Note that I’m not calling Fashion & Textiles a ‘Node’ as we have sometimes called it - I can’t let this bastardization of language go on any further - the individual people interested in the topic are Nodes, the main organizers and connectors of the topic are Node Connectors, and the topic itself… well, if we continue from nodes and node connectors, it’s a Network.
The Fashion & Textiles Network. The Documentation Network. The Business Models Network.
But maybe ‘network’ is a bit awkward. Would Theme, Team, Topic or Thread be better?
