Internal communication & group dynamics

MD Maïa Dereva Public Seen by 435

The EAC comes from a first group with people who met each other in real life. But new commoners will surely and regularly join the "virtual" group. It could be important and interesting to think about tools to help people to know each other, and to encourage the group dynamics. For example a welcome area, a who's who,...

Hi @gaelle11 , in the "Outreach communication" topic you wrote "we should bring the discuss to the mailing list".
Are you talking about the CommonsWatch mailing list?
Isn't it a good idea to create a different mailing list dedicated to EAC issues?

Yes I talked about the mailing list:
commonswatch@lists.p2pfoundation.net
It's the one we created right after the meeting in Villarceaux for this group, where everybody is subscribed.

Thank you @gaelle11 :smiley:
So, is EAC the new name for CommonsWatch or a new group with different or specific goals?

Yes @maiadereva there is a collection of short biographies collected when people register in the list of discussion. The page is in wiki.remixthecommons.org. I can share it later. It will be pushed in the wiki of ECA when it will be created.

Yes, I know the page @fredericsultan : http://wiki.remixthecommons.org/index.php/CommonsWatch
Good idea to push it in the future wiki.
Can you explain me the difference between EAC and CommonsWatch ? Can we say that EAC is a kind of sub-project of CW ?

Hi,
Yes it's the name that people choose after the meeting in Villarceaux. Several days after we had the list working already that's why we have commonswatch as the list and EAC as a name ;-)

hey... the pirate party Amsterdam wants to sign. Are we letting local political parties sign? What do people think?

Just from a logistical perspective, it might be hard to monitor who signs and so we have to think carefully about the "rules" we craft to legitimate it all. As @davidhammerstein has maintained, it's important we are pluralist and not officially aligned with ANY political party. So, it might be a good idea in fact to have a rule saying we don't display signatures from parties. But on the other hand, in the name of transparency and accessibility and seeking to unite different bodies around the commons, it might be worth leaving it open. I think we could add a disclaimer along the lines of "we don't affiliate or represent any parties, but we don't stop anyone from signing"

I agree with Nicole proposal to add a simple line like "we don't affiliate or represent any parties" and I would use a positive way to say "we don't stop" => "Everybody is free to sign"

World Social Forum uses a system for political parties; Political parties can "support" WSF but cannot be members...

We could use a similar rule : Political parties cannot sign the call but can support it

I'm also uploading the participant list from the First Meeting which I originally circulated by email on December 17.
