Stewart Long, Shannon Dosemagen and I had our bi-weekly meeting today. We reviewed last weeks list, and set out some deadlines and to-dos:


  • KNC - 15th
  • FOSS4G - 15th

This week

  • list of equipment for C4
  • we can start doing the data portal site with basic fields (stewart/jeff)
  • appalachian areas of interest -
  • chrome on mac knitter failed -- couldn't get it to load base data.
    • giving it a first location - doesn't seem to accept lat/lon

Additional To-do

  • front page changes - adding a slideshow or accordion thing to shuffle through our active projects after showing the first "panel"
  • website feedback (shannon will send to Jeff)
    • what's the call to action? the prompt? donate? can they be part of it?
  • choose next set of posters: round 2 will be 3 in a batch, maybe at 500 quantity
  • Budget: up to 6-week fieldwork sessions for close work with a community
  • from our academic members, what flexibility for travel/in-depth work comes up in the summer months?

Future work

  • logbook
  • FOSS4G - April 15 abstract deadline
  • video tutorials - contacting kristian hansen? and finding video funding...
  • could membership contributions be redefined -- with more concrete returns? related to open source?

Next meeting at 10AM Eastern Friday, April 15th -- email to participate!
