NB10 Meeting Notes and Tasks from 2017-07-25 Preparation Meeting #2

Attendance: John, Christine, Ryan S, Jarrod, Lxpk, Suyash, Lady Red

(Note to Attendees, please make corrections as needed)


We need a documented procedure that people can use to get stuff onto the Noisebridge blog. One I idea is having a form thru which people can submit text and pictures and then this can be posted to the blog. Since the blog is on tumblr, perhaps there is a way people can forward posts they make on their blogs to Noisebridge’s, or Noisebridge can repost their post when alerted. Either way, we should have a document on the wiki that helps people who feel like adding stuff to the Noisebridge blog, with doing so.

(We read through the confirmed events list and did a rough organization of what confirmed events would be good on which days)

Lxpk has volunteered to bring his band “Primerist” to perform at the ball.

Suyash has volunteered to perform a Magic show that relies on technologies such as VR and Electronics

Simbridge will be on display during the ball

We need videographers to help record, edit, and distribute recordings of the events and ball

The group agrees that there should be “Keynote” talk to open the event. While reading through the events list, it is decided that Mitch’s “The Importance of Noisebridge to the Worldwide Hackerspace Movement” talk would be a good fit for this.

Inviting more local media to the event is felt to be a good idea

Having reminders in the events, that Noisebridge is funded through donations should happen

Need to verify and document all the ways that it is possible for a person to donate to Noisebridge

The plan for the t-shirts for the event is: Round 1 - Internal round of signups and money collecting then order a batch of shirts in the requested sizes Depending on interest and available funds, we could order a stock for the event Round 2 - During and After event: Offer attendees a chance to sign up for a second batch of shirt printing Round 3 - Upload the design to a online shirt maker that people can order from as they feel like

Custom Exhibition and Ball themed “Hello My Name is” badges are desired. Having them also say “I am from the year….” is a great idea.

Presenters and Volunteers for the event will get Exhibition Badges. Design TBD

We should start planning food and refreshments, this will go on the next meeting agenda.
