1. Amplifying the Conference with Technology - Mathieu P
(nice short article at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue66/guy/ )
Started a Confluence page to report back on what we discussed:
- Michelle: Opencast has been working with JASIG
-- Material provided by U. of Sask., U. of Nebraska
-- Only using HD cameras
-- All managed by Matterhorn
-- 3 or 4 volunteers that will rotate during the conference
Michelle Ziegmann: I'm really liking this platform as a potential conference space http://acquia.com/products-services/drupal-commons
Mathieu, Michelle, Jenn C. and Ian to discuss this topic outside of this call
Volunteers to assist with local projects, social media, video?
* List'em here!!!
* Rob Coyle will help with TWSIA videos and related
There is value in professionally-produced and crowdsourced ones.
- Professional: longer shelf-life
- Amateur: Anything, viral, Youtube-like
2. Timeline, Request for Proposals - Kim
The system supports adding keywords, but not publishing them in program (maybe next year), we could export and analyze
Kim; request for info goes out soon--first meesage to community, think about your proposal, and think about what you'd like to hear about
Call for proposals out as soon as possible
Committee could be active participants in blog--seed it with our ideas and requests.
3. Keynotes - Ian
* Changes in higher education in this economy?
* University of California system, budget issue?
"No matter how left field, let Ian know" (is this a cricket or a baseball metaphor?)
