Initially, before Lunch, we will set a stage for our strategic discussions by asking a single question among the attendees and allow the discussion to progress from there. We will then break for Lunch, and we encourage attendees to continue discussing Ideas.
What are technology areas where we can plant seeds, incubate, and build specific relationships in the interest of Open Infrastructure?
¶ (1:00 PM) Informal Strategic Discussions - Breakout Groups
The attendees of the meeting will be discussing strategic topics as previously discussed and identified. More information from prior discussion can be found on the Etherpad for brainstorming.
The process will be for the attendees to break into a number of distinct groups, and for the participants to discuss, capture thoughts, feedback, ideas, and then convey it back to the entire group. After which, before departing, attendees will be given an opportunity to review and apply +1's to items which resonate to them, and express any interest in participation.
In breaking into groups, we have some general themes and statements suggested below that we would like attendees to form into groups based upon resonance of the specific area. This does not mean the group is restricted to these topics, but more as a suggested common point for participants to start from.
How do we spread the word of our communities successes? Uses? Potential?
How do we reveal the hidden usage?
In other words, with the movement of technology to commodity or critical infrastructure, incentive disappears for it to be spoken of or highlighted. Is there a way to build better understanding of, and encourage context sharing?
How do we support key community features? Can we help the community broadcast?
Can we broadcast outward or help raise awareness? Are there avenues which we are not using or are under utilizing?
