  1. Introductions

  2. Staff report-back
  1. Mallory: interfaced with other working groups.
  • ICT: available on various projects, helping on organize site
  • Media and Communications: Just spoke on the phone with Adele about People Media Center - start of the organizing. We are putting a call out for a february 17 call at 9:00 pm eastern. PMC = a bunch of computers, space during the forum. Adele is on the board of Allied Media Project (which puts on AMC)
  • World Social Forum: CiviCRM - helping them with some of the work we've done for the USSF
  • International Solidarity team: created web form to get feedback about participation - no submissions :(.
  • Peoples Movement Assembly: taking with Steph and Genaro (and keeping Jamie and Josue in the loop)
  • Program and Culture: getting culture submission online, need to check in and get feedback
  • Submitted Grant application for detroit expanded
  • Youth Call: expressed interest in wiki training, but haven't heard a response
  • Creating/Answering tickets, emails etc.
  • Keeping up on upcoming conferences
  1. Tdka

  • Under the weather
  • Focus on the ground: logistics, outreach, culture (mostly logistics)
  • Putting together program management system
  • Outreach is not developing at the pace that it should be - want to use technology, will use the color printers that we have for flyers
  • Logistics: met with them last night, plan saturday to have software up and running
  • Met with Maureen
  • DLOC meeting tuesday night - 100 - 120 people at the meeting
  • Call out to organizations for donations. Problem is that it's mostly junk they are trying to get tax write off for
  • Will put online our specs of tech that we need
  • Putting together committee to improve conditions around dloc - projection, flyers, professionalize the meetings more
  • Need to have a system in Detroit for inputting walk-in registrations--he'll coordinate w/ Victor, Maureen and Mark

8:00 pm, Monday: Weekly Staff meeting

  1. Otra
    1. People's Media Center--call Wed 2/17 at 9pm EST. Need to encourage people to become journalists, shooting for what we had in Atlanta (60 - 80). Aspiration has offered 20 laptops. Hoping for 150.
    2. USSF's ABCs: PMA, outreach package - combining PMA with detroit expanded, caravans and other outreach efforts
    3. Paypal: transition from project south to praxis should be complete (otherwise there's a problem). Also: finance - please research better payment processor (save money + politically better than paypal). Scott: may need to change payment processor for custom donation pages
    4. organize site meeting: about our - still just a foundation, and starting to be used - several needs (user accounts, profiles, user list page, project organic groups). Need a meeting - before Feb. 10.
    5. online support: email vs. ticket? Email is un-manageable, but people are intimidated by trac.
    6. ramping up outreach (Projects): now we want to ramp up participation of techies. Mark/Alfredo will work on figuring out new forms/plans for moving forward
    7. online cultural submissions: it's a cck type. Some mis-communication with oya about latest version, needs feedback
