Christian et al lovely people,

I love the audience analysis and will fill in for media. I noticed there were no media production notes in the recap. I'm in massachusetts right now, talking to people who think ows its trust fund kids and dirty people, for the reason that we have not come together to realize video is our greatest asset.

We need a video put out by the movement that becomes very popular, and this can represent us honestly. I ask that everyone take a moment to think why videos are not being pumped out daily by a conveyer like system in the name of the GA, and consensus itself. (Will someone join me in expressing on audience analysis pls?), internet wg, open source ( are all trying to figure out a plugin or original code for a project organization tool that would allow users to:

Submit creative ideas

Have profiles indicating involvement/experience so that:

Ability to volunteer for shifts and projects and submit chores that need to be done in general, for users to "check off" which shows on their profile.

Catalogue of projects w categories: outreach, education, coordination, action, direct democracy process, wg's, sub wg's, channel, series, campaign, + other relevant tags and topics.

Needs and offers posted categorized for: individuals, the movement, and most importantly the needs of a certain project. I invite anyone to join my initiative to write out all the functions you see as needs, as open source and internet work on this. Btw for developers to volunteer spread this link:

Until that time we'll use a combination of , google docs any other suggestions for media ppl to plugin instantly? This stuff we need on the front page along w news feed and dir dem process/how to.

I'm at occupy Boston tonight, and will be at tues mtg. Pls anyone get in touch for "business/plan/web specs/charter for media and internet/ and media production in general.

Being away makes me love this movement even more.

Subject: [NYCGA-IWG] Communications Cluster Meeting - Tonight, 7pm

Hi All,

Sorry for the late notice (and it seems to have dropped off the events list), but tonight is the weekly communications cluster meeting at 7pm at the Atrium in 60 Wall St.  We made a bunch of progress last meeting, but still haven't made it all the way through the audience analysis chart.

Also, attendance at the meeting is dwindling:(  Right now the meeting conflicts with a Internet WG meeting and I'm guessing people are fried by the end of the weekend and don't want to finish with a late meeting.  I'm going to propose that we move the meeting to Tuesday at 7pm, right after the Info WG meeting.  How do people feel about that?

Notes from last meeting (also included in the audience chart):

1. The Spokescouncil has come up with a way to catagorize working groups so the website can just follow that; we don't have to float our own proposal.

2. We went through about a third of the audience analysis chart and came up with the following takeaways:

Hello Everyone:

We will have the second Communications Cluster meeting tomorrow, Oct 30 at 7pm in the Atrium at 60 Wall St.

The Cluster meeting is an opportunity for people active in cluster working groups to work on issues relevant to all groups and help coordinate our efforts.  This meeting will be a continuation of our last where we will further discuss our key audiences, they're information needs and our plan for filling those needs.

Last time we mapped audiences and needs to get a better sense of what our overall communications needs are.  You can find the grid
here. See sheet 2 of that doc for action items coming out of the meeting.

Other items from last meeting:

We also discussed catagorizing the groups listed on the site so that people can find what they're looking for better.  Jake and Leia are taking that on and will send a provisional breakdown to WGs seeking feedback on any group that feels miscategorized.

We also discussed the need to get a list management tool and cooperating on recruiting volunteers.  Christian and others are focusing on making CiviCRM our solution for this.

Several people are interested in setting up project management tools for the working groups and will be working on getting a trial collabpress module up as a first step.

Hope to see you on Sunday (tomorrow)!
