discussed:[edit]

  • needs
  • outreach
  • next steps

notes:[edit]

needs from project:[edit]

ingrid:

  • an inclusive space where people feel WELCOME (particularly folks who normally don’t feel welcome in tech spaces, or who normally are made to feel like they don’t know things: read women, people of color, queer folks, etc.)
  • space to check*in on work and projects
  • a social, connected work space
  • space for workshops and breakouts to form around specific projects and goals
  • drop*in hours

austin:

  • inclusive and welcoming space (STRONG CONSENSUS around this point)
  • space for novices; novices included in formation of space from jump
  • access and skill*building as a political project
  • a space in which we all feel free, a space we feel like we own (“a room of our own”)
  • reclaim a zuccotti we can actually have (ie: take good parts we liked about that large, unwiedly space and make them work on a smaller, more discreet scale)
  • space that is attentive to meeting the personal needs of all of its members

ingrid & austin:

  • space that is systemically political vs. situationally political (ie: prefigurative space instead of space that runs campaigns)
  • concrete, finite, manageable paramaters
  • clearly defined boundaries (what are they?)
  • clearly defined paths of access (and exclusion, where necessary)
  • successful experiment in self government
  • “do-ocracy”
