    1313Hilary: Content Committee review, and how we will relay content to the LC?
     14
    1415Feedback from Democracy Committee - use cases.
     16
    1517Hilary: Content Committee, looking for general feedback. Sticks out, general direction, rethink parts?
    16 Rasha:  proposal looks good but the initial proposal looks at how lowdown would look on the website.  This propsal looks at content creation and collection.
    17 the power of the proposal is to give people definition of what to do so they can be autonomous in their action.  So including a purpose would be important.  And how it could work.  What need does this fill. I can add this to the description.

     21
    1922Aaron - are you on the call?  Analia is available to help with interpretation.
     23
    2024Stephen: still working on drupal web development proposal for the lowdown sent by jamie, please send notes so that I can update the wiki.
     25
    2126Rasha: recommendations for content committee members?
     27
    2228Hilary: Alfredo's group thiscantbehappening. Dave Lindorf also in this group. Ned Sublette writer. Beehive collective art, art graphics.  Alfredo has more ideas?
     29
    2330Rasha: ideas for folks to serve on committee or contribute to this committee?
     31
    2432Alfredo: All of our journalism members: Ned, Dave. Mark Engler, columnist. Thiscantbehappening. Kenyon Farrow, Makani Thembe of Praxis Project. MAGNet, Hilary heads up that connection, number of writers there. A lot of people working around this. Probably more writers in the membership. 10-12 active journalists in membership that we've never organized.
     33
    2534Hilary:
    2635100 reporters,  Sahara Reporters, NACLA, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, APC - Mallory Knodel, Pedro Miguel, Juan Gerardo
    2736Probably great contributors to content, but not necessarily the content organizers.  We should also think about people who might serve on the committee as coordinators and implementors.
     37
    2838Hilary: good distinction. Hard to think of, a general callout or targeting specific folks?
     39
    2940Rasha - we can do a general call out but might also want to identify specific people for this committee.  This is a great way to praise people, recognize their leadership and mobilize them.
     41
    3042Hilary: content coordination is already in staff, we might get absorbed into this committee. Hilary, Jamie, but not expect him to organize much. Alfredo would be great. Ross has good ideas, not as much a writer. Stephen has article, Daniel is working on something. Putting call to support team for tech stuff. Specific call to LC to get involved or think of others to get involved in their circles. Bc Lowdown is internal, we haven't pulled in others.
     43
    3144Rasha: need more support?
     45
    3246Hilary: more people getting involved, would spread out. Difficult part is getting timely translation of articles right now; we have articles ready, but not sure whether it's scheduling, technical parts of system. Working with Internationalization team is issue. More specific schedule might help. Deadline scheduled for things in, things out, then translation committee can predict.
    3347Alfredo: coordinating decision making is the single most difficult thing to do. Most people believe their contribution is their political work, part of discussion we continue to have, contentious. Most members do believe that, we may not get much more out of most people. We're going to end up getting people who have a lot of time, requires specific selection process. Like selecting staff. I would love to get LC poeple, but I have no faith, not enough forces on it to contribute to workgroups and subcommittees we've designed at this time. Maybe a general call, and make a list of 30-40 member organizations that have highest profile and deepest level of activity, would they have a staff person to join this committee? Difficult.
