Open 2018 : 26-27 July in London

D
Draft Public Seen by 426

Hi everyone !

There is a nice event coming up where we could have our own space to discuss and continue de co-construct the open app ecosystem all together.

It could be a great time to meet each other, create some working group on problematics we encounter, etc...

If the idea interest you, we could design this space all together (what we will do, how, for what purpose, etc...). We could start with a simple google doc.

If you wanna know more about the event, here is the website :

Thanks for kicking this thread off @draft :)

(my notification had the dates as 22nd 23rd of July - which is wrong but I think you have now updated the title of the thread although the URL remains the same - the actual dates for the conference are 26th and 27th of July)

Yes, we would really like to meet people from the OAE at the event. We will have several open space session in which the audience will decide what is discussed but I would like to 'block out' one of these and dedicate it to discussions about the OAE, if there is enough interest, as it seems so important to me...

Using the Google doc to add discussion ideas and potential topics seems like a great way to go... then, once we have a few perhaps we can pull the various themes together into a few key areas and work out how to be most effective in the time available - which I should know more about in the next few months. I'll let you know as things develop...

Thanks again for kicking this off and we look forward to some interesting OAE discussions at OPEN 2018 :)

(for anyone who can't make it to the UK we will post as much info as we can capture online after the event)

Too far for us, but would be very interested in anything you can post if the OAE session happens! Video would be great. And interested in the prep too.

Yeah I'm so tired these days, don't know why I put the 22 23 in the first place :)

Doc updated : I made a proposition about how we can proceed. It's a draft, it may change a lot ;)

If you wanna comment, or suggest, or add things, be my guest :D

Thank you @draft for this idea ... I was interested in coming but tickets are so expensive ... maybe I will try to write to the organisers to see if they can have free tickets for volunteering action groups like mine who work to foster commons and cooperations :)

@draft are you in contact with organisers ?

Oliver might be able to help you, he's in cc and one of the co-organizers,

Hi All,

I am one of the organisers - sorry if you think tickets are expensive @nicolasfonty we've tried to price them as cheaply as possible to cover the costs - OPEN 2018 is not a profit making event, just aiming to cover costs... and you get food and drink for both days in the ticket price... (and maybe a beer or two as well!)

We do have Volunteer tickets too - which cost £35 but that's to ensure that the volunteers turn up and can be refunded after the event, if you would like a volunteer ticket please get on via https://2018.open.coop and let us know what you think you can help with!? :)

What does a volunteer need to do ?

Draft Fri 16 Mar 2018

@olisb What are your answers about the open app ecosystem space during this event ? Who's interested by this initiative ?

OS

Oli SB Fri 16 Mar 2018

Volunteers can help with anything... they should be able to provide at least half a day of support at the event (to help direct people where to go, help with registration etc) and / or offer some social media support in the run up to the event... or something else! Just let us know what you would like to do?

OS

Oli SB Fri 16 Mar 2018

Hi @draft - I'm not sure exactly what answers you are looking for? Did I miss some questions?

D

Draft Fri 16 Mar 2018

@olisb I'm gonna make some promotion for this event at the WSF and talk about the Open app ecosystem space to bring people interested by this question here to the open event.

D

Draft Fri 16 Mar 2018

I mean with your emails and stuff, you contacted some people I think, what answers did you get (I mean we say answer in french, but maybe not in english).

My second question is more accurate : Who's interested by the event ?

D

Draft Fri 16 Mar 2018

@olisb Another question : How can we contribute to the event ? Do you have a chat or a loomio's group to organisate the event ?

OS

Oli SB Fri 16 Mar 2018

I've had a few chats with others about ideas for some open space sessions but nothing is set yet - this thread is the best place to post ideas about what we could discuss as part of an OAE session. We had some discussion on it last year which was broken down into things like Identity, Linked Open Data, Open Standards, Protocols and Taxonomies etc... but we're really open to any ideas people might have... the hard part is making sure it is open enough for anyone to join (who doesn't know about the OAE idea) but specific enough for people who have been studying and working in this area for some time to make useful progress... But I guess how we provide for that depends on who turns up...

Draft Fri 16 Mar 2018

Yeah inclusivity is very important. That's why I was thinking about several working groups working or discussing about a specific subject.

Danyl Strype Fri 20 Apr 2018

My wife and I are planning to come to this! Did you get my email to the address you gave in the CTA thread @olisb ? If anyone else is on the fence about coming, come! It would be great to meet some of the people who comment here in the flesh, and we can make progress in an hour or two of F2F conversations that would take weeks or months of sending text back and forth.

Michel Bauwens Fri 20 Apr 2018

I should be there and looking forward to see you ! and you mean you are coming with Alanna right ?

OS

Oli SB Fri 20 Apr 2018

just replied to you via email - we're planning several sessions on tech so the more people from OAE and CTA that can make it the better - I couldn't agree with Strypey more - f2f conversations should really help move things fwd... :)

DS

Danyl Strype Sun 22 Apr 2018

Hey @olisb I love the idea of collaboratively pre-planning some OAE sessions during the event, but rather than a goOgle Doc, can we please use an open app like EtherPad or CryptPad? A detailed table of collaborative authoring tools is being aggregated on the P2P Foundation wiki.

DS

Danyl Strype Sat 28 Apr 2018

That's great, can't wait to catch up :) Maybe we could schedule a P2PF/ CT session over a meal during the event (or is there something on the schedule already)?

Michel Bauwens Mon 30 Apr 2018

nothing planned yet, feel free to make a proposal, I will put it in my agenda and copy @staccotroncoso,

I'll be at the conference, focusing on cooperative money.

Hey @olisb ! We'd be very interested in seeing some of the sessions from Open:2018! I know some were streamed, but am wondering if they will also be available online? Thanks!!

Stacco Troncoso Tue 31 Jul 2018

I think they'll be uploading them over the next few weeks. We'll republish them on the P2PF blog as they arrive.
