@powellc
Click the "+" in blue near the top and you can add a NOTES.md file
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Thats weird... None of the formatting really worked... Oh well. It'll be there as a resource.
Colin Powell
@powellc
You gotta make sure there's a .md file extension
Done and done!
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
The hard part about this is categorizing all the different approaches, case studies, legal frameworks etc... in a manner that makes sense. Especially since the initial goal is promotion.
Colin Powell
@powellc
Yeah, how were you gonna do that with another tool?
We could have a case_studies directory, legal directory, approaches
or CASE_STUDIES.md, LEGAL_ISSUES.md and APPROACHES.md or some such
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Whoa, I just saw that all the commits are showing up on Slack
maybe I should unlink Github?
Yes, dedicated directories is what I was thinking
Colin Powell
@powellc
I can unlink github ... but it's just the codeformaine channel where it's posting those
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
I think we can specify individual repositories to Slack
so we can unlink everything but code4maine-ops maybe?
Colin Powell
@powellc
+1
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
RE: dedicated directories- I wanted to make sure your references were included as well.
Most importantly, I would like a place for contacts and connections so we can invite people to guest-present on Hangouts.
Now that we're on Slack we can open up a new channel for internet access and invite Code for BTV etc...
Colin Powell
@powellc
totally, that's great
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
I see Chatanooga's on there too!
Colin Powell
@powellc
Hmm, I can see how github is not awesome for this. Would be nice if beehve to help manage things like this ... project contacts, case studies, connections etc
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Of course Now there's pressure to do the documentation right!
I'm wondering if in addition to a series of informational web/hangouts, it would be better to propose something more tangible as a project outcome?
Like a report? but less boring?
Colin Powell
@powellc
Right, you're spot on
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Of course, my ultimate goal would be to actually create some kind of Low-Profit ISP, but its probably best to work up to that
Colin Powell
@powellc
I also think keeping docs in Github is still a good idea because we get version tracking and it's easy to share with folks
Right, a 501(c)3 ISP ... so cool
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
I was thinking more like an L3C which only exists in a few states but allows you to be both an LLC and 501c3
So you can attract investors and donations as long as you have a public mission
All the more reason for a dedicated LEGAL.md
The thing about Community Wireless is it could easily have its own Repo, but its more powerful if part of a larger public internet context.
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Perhaps, I'll go through the GDocs and reorganize into a new public_internet folder that we can then export to .md
BTW- the tool I used for conversion was https://github.com/mangini/gdocs2md
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
OK. I reorganized everything I had in GDocs that is relevant to open-internet- https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_H1RMCybuylQ3NISEFtRVJfdWs&usp=sharing
Colin Powell
@powellc
Awesome
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
I'm not sure if everything needs to go into github though. as youll see, there's quite a bit on community wireless because Ive been working on it for over a year. There's also the guy in Eastport who wants to collaborate
whoops... Maybe I should take out the part where I call Rush Limbaugh a mutant demon?
Colin Powell
@powellc
Yup, I just find that I often have trouble with gdocs because I have like 3 google powered-accounts and I'm never sure when I'm logged into what or where I saved a particular document. Really funny that Google's claim to fame is organizing information.
lol
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
yeah Google's the worst when it comes to integrating with itself
Colin Powell
@powellc
that's funny ...
Okay, I gotta head out for hacker club tonight
Going to be meeting with someone about direction for the volunteer hub, and someone else had a really great idea for a DOT problem reporting phone app
Gonna be a good meetup!
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
Awesome! Do your best to sell the open internet idea!
Colin Powell
@powellc
I sure will, I added @Alsoongit to this chat room, he's the wireless guy who's keen on building a cost-effective public wifi solution
Andrew Jawitz
@Cribstone
This project is definitely going to need a good strong README/manifesto since all the different parts could get confusing otherwise. As many might have guessed, I'm very good at putting things into a broader context, but not so good at coming up with succinct summaries. So I'll definitely need some help. I created a new git branch to keep our in-progress edits on the README
