“Analyzing The 1%” TV Show
Gilbert came to the group looking for help shooting a 45 min backdrop for a 1 hour live show called “Analyzing the 1%”. The group felt this was a job for Media. It was suggested that Gilbert use classifieds.occupy.net to post the job request. Media contacts were also exchanged.
A discussion around meeting times, if two a week is too many. There is now some work space available and the team felt that it should do more work sessions. Due to some core members being out of town the meeting time’s discussion was tabled. It was agreed that more time should be spent in the IRC chat room: #nycga-techops on the freenode.net.
Crowdsourced Funding Platform
SIS (Office Space)
Some computers and laptops are going to be delivered to SIS (38 Broadway) tomorrow. Casper needs help fixing some of the broken inventory (email email@example.com if you want to help). Space is also needed to host more computers for the public.
Civi for Working Groups
People are confused about Civi and don’t think it’s ready (it is). There are a few groups currently using it, it’s ready to send first mass mailing. There needs to be training, promotion, and trust building to add admins. There is a lot of demand for a Civi training meeting.
Pea is now the new metro card point person!
Action item: make basic template for announcing each new tech ops project (announcement of features in Civi, GA, Twitter, training the following week, documentation)
