Let's create together a Diaspora presentation !
What do we need:
- very good facts to get more people involved in Diaspora
- a nice design
Wanted - picture <-- Post in Fb
Wanted - post <-- reshare in D*
I created a very first presentation in LibreOffice with some facts, pictures and drawings.
You can download a pdf document from my cloud:
Please give me some more facts and so on, which can me added by me :)
The link seems to be broken.
it got double escaped by loomio, I've added an "unescaped" version to the description above.
Hmm still doesn't work?
oh wow, that's unhelpful... =( not sure what we can do about that, this is why you should never have non-alphanumeric characters in your filenames =P For now, you can still get at the file if you manually copy + paste the link.
Hmm. I think this should work?
Copy/paste the first link should also work - at least everything is ok in my browser (FF).
WOT say to me that this web site has a poor reputation.
What about the HTML5 template ?
Ehm this website (owncloud) is an private small ARM PC which is nearly next to me :D
I think everything is ok with it ;)
I have no knowledge about HTML5 because of that I created the first steps with LibreOffice...
MatAL - I love the visual design of the presentation, awesome, looks good! This is why I suggested someone with an eye for this would work on it, thanks!
As for the content, we definitely need to get that part in order. I suggest we continue building the content in the wiki (anyone can edit) and then update your presentation with the content?
The wiki page is here: http://wiki.diaspora-project.org/wiki/Presentation-DiasporaNetwork .. I copied the content as is.
I like the design but I'm guessing from the content that your first language isn't english ;)
Do you have the file in a format I can edit (eg inkscape)
Robin, what about collectively editing here http://wiki.diaspora-project.org/wiki/Presentation-DiasporaNetwork ?
Jepp English ins't my first language - sorry about that ;)
Collectively editing in the wiki of Diaspora is a very good idea @Jason.
@Robin: Do you want to work with the original .odp file or should I create different gimp or inkspace files in the next few days?
Oh yeah If you have it as ODP that's fine, just email it over a it is.
Here we go! We have a first "WANTED" picture which is created by Dennis (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here's the Diaspora Link which you can/should reshare: https://pod.geraspora.de/posts/c59f754bb6d7bc48
and this is the direct picture Link:
Please reshare the link in Diaspora and for example the picture in Facebook and so on.
Has anybody of you a copy of the libre-office presentation I uploaded a few month ago?
I lost it on my PC :/ and I would like to work on it a little bit.
This is important, I really want to help out. Can't take the eventual technical parts, but I love writing. Plus that I'm longing to see that visual design! ;)
Oh, by the way. Wouldn't it be nice to make the presentation in different formats too? For example one introduction version, an document that tells you all about the diaspora movement and concept, one detailed version that gives more depth to things you might need to know, like the technical part and the arguments part, and one that focuses more on key things - like a cheat-sheet poster that tells you Why?, How?, For Whom?, By Who?, How can I help? and similar headers so that ordinary people understands it without having to read that much. Like a PR information-poster that you can hand out after a lecture or link to when people just want an inkling about what it is.
In this way we could have something for the ordinary person that does not know the difference between a homepage and an image, the interested person that would like to learn more about the difference between Diaspora, Facebook and Friendica and for the person that wants to know all about it so that he/she can find good arguments and facts to convince and spread it! :)
I did a presentation about the Diaspora architecture which is available here under CC-BY.
But it should be read again by @florianstaudacher or @jonneha :)
I'd be happy to help write up a post or make a picture. :)
@flaburgan your presentation is great. We could extend it and bring in some points @ivangabrielmorn brought up.
Being new to Diaspora, I have to admit I've found it incredibly difficult to find a way to contribute anything meaningful in ways outside of coding. I don't have the skills to code but I do have a lot of organizational / public engagement / analytic skills that I want to contribute. Despite the wiki, the Youtube videos, general observation, and a ton of research over the past months, I still don't have a grip of where we're at, what the major ideas are right now, where people are thinking of taking this project, the wider status of open source social networking, etc.
I'm interested in this presentation, but beyond that, I'm interested in being a part of a community conversation. Where/how can we make that happen as well?
@taylormcleod well, we always need help with the wiki. currently in particular concerning the move from github to our own mediawiki.
@taylormcleod being here giving your opinion is already great. To familiarize yourself with the project, feel free to explore our new wiki.
Here are the things you can do excluding development : Translation, Support / Help (you can follow #diaspora and #newHere on Diaspora* and answer to any question you find), Spread the word (write blog post, invite your friend), submit bug you find on Github.
If you are a little bit technical, you can host a Diaspora pod too !
@florianstaudacher @flaburgan Thanks for the tips mates. I'm also registered for a class on D* through a website called Eliademy. You've probably heard of it. Should be super good to get dialed in. You'll be seeing more of me I hope and perhaps sometime in the future we could grab a virtual cup of coffee and chat about where things are at.
Eliademy is run by Jason Robinson, who's part of this Loomio discussion group. Sounds as though you're already getting stuck in - well done.
A presentation I created sometime back https://diaspune.onlinegroups.net/r/file/23096-2011-11-06T042958Z/thediasporastory.odp
Would be cool to collect these in the wiki, I think there is a section there?
@jasonrobinson @mataloutreach do either of you have the template that you can upload (or email)? I have had no success with the moo link (or the tinyurl link on the wiki). I updated the wiki page with Fla and Praveen 's presentations.
Also in line with Fla's comment about an HTML presentation there is reveal.js / rvl.io
Sorry, my link in the first post ist offline because I installed a new server - furthermore I lost this document :/
Maybe any other person could reupload my document?
