== 2: How to get more people? Project Recruitment== Mark: Recruitment!!! How do we get people to come into space and work on cool shit? Dane: (Aside: we need a locker cleanup) TJ: In order to avoid discussion item #3 happening we need more people in the space to make everyone more accountable Naomi: In order to spread the message of NB you need to get people to have a sense of ownership. Hence why fixing Membership TJ: People are interested in and excited about working on projects at NB. False equivalence exists between being uncertain of whats going on versus not being interested. We need to identify which is what Naomi(resident old person): There have been a bunch of different ways of getting people involved. 20% of the people are going to be doing waaay more than the rest. Not everyone you bring in are going to be interested in developing the space. Previously (at peak NB) the majority of people came in through classes and then stayed after and got involved. It'd be surprising if 50% of people coming for circuit hacking monday to get actively involved in NB but some will. Publish on public facing : Fun Cheap SF, shows, Meetup, etc. Elan: To the effectiveness of punk rock shows - some of them have come back and just to hack that's all Naomi: That was sort of the idea of guilds is to give people an approachable entry point to NB for their interests. Dane: Could also push things on social media accounts (our Meetup account brings in new folx for events, maybe post on other digital outreach websites ?) Naomi: when we try to go big on social media, 2 problems: 1) ROI on social media effort doesn't seem to terribly great. Instead, we have success leveraging people's in-person networks, communities, and such 2) NB hasn't been able to sustain the effort, because people drift in and out, interest in maintaining accounts wanes, etc 3) Meetup (and other outreach) greatly increased attendance of CHM Elan: I think I originally heard about NB through the meetups, but past (and new) projects we've done as a group should be showcased more and could get ppl excited about coming here and doing more. Let's do public art/projects! HB: Public art is a great idea. I'm a visual artist and have been active in many mediums. I'd definitely be interested in doing some graffiti art if ever we could do something like that. - Elan: I would love to join you on this! TJ: 5mof YOUTUBE CHANNEL!! Let's get in a documentary and on news sites! Elan: Let's cover the front of the building with LEDs! HB: Just a note that high school kids despite their reputation attend coding clubs on a regular and could be potential stewards of the space given the right guidance. Chris: One thing we could do is upgrade the office furniture. Some people have come by and love the idea but for working on things it's not as good as a cafe (a bit rundown). Mark: we were just talking about throwing out some of the jankier furniture. Naomi: there's an event in portland where people light up their bikes with LEDs and they do a massive ride through the city. Its cool and people love it and love seeing it! Elan: Romy presented a projector project at 5mof. Basically they crashed east bay bikeparty with LED bike projects as a way to introduce people to SudoRoom Mark: 5mof is a good promo tool. Get more people to do it and to attend. Naomi: Should sync up with DorkBot. Mark: Project recruitment. TJ: We should create a formal list of projects we can advertise. Elan: I was thinking we could have like a channel where people post crazy ideas to see if they can generate interest which hopefully coalesces into a project. Naomi - what about github issues (page as a forum for this)? TJ: We moved from github to Trello bc it was super easy to login and do stuff in. everyone has access. you can just add items and stuff. Mark: I like the idea of an projects idea space Mark : do we have a project help channel? Elan: Not on Slack, Discuss isn't as addictive because no pings - TJ / Naomi / Dane : haven't been on for a while. - HB: I only go on for specific reasons. - Mark: Used to use it but not as much reason. - TJ: Some people exclusively use it Mark: Worth checking in on Discuss to make sure to include those people Naomi: Would be nice to send things out on nb-discuss mailing lists. - Mark: This was used for consensus items right? - Naomi: *scoffs* Everyone should read that for history knowledge purposes (esp 2014). Other spaces would read our mailing list to feel better about their own internal drama.
