Open Source Bridge 2015 Planning

7 August 2014 - via Vidyo video conference

Last meeting notes: Open_Source_Bridge/2015/Meetings/2014-07-28


Reid, Amy F, Kirsten, Mike G, Chris F

Note-keeper: Kirsten


  • If we want weekly meeting announcements, let's automate them.
  • Designate a note-keeper for each meeting who will:
    • Move notes from the etherpad to the Syndicate wiki
    • Update "last meeting notes" link at the top of the etherpad
    • Send out an email linking to the meeting notes


  • Reid will update prospectus within the week
  • If anyone else wants to help with fundraising, let Reid know
  • First round will be contacting everyone who has sponsored OSBridge over the past two years.
  • Mike suggested using crowdfunding for things other than the core conference costs, like a scholarship program or other extra activities


  • We signed the contract with the Eliot Center and paid initial deposit
  • Need to add the event to Calagator (Kirsten will do) DONE:
  • When do we open registration? Reid wants to review web site and re-work front page a bit before we announce.
  • Come up with a plan for announcement (Reid)
