Heya @/all - I just made this room in case it was a useful way to stay in touch for MozFest planning
I'll be on the wranglers call today - let me know if there's anything that I should bring up if you can't be there :)

Brillo! I have a little time - do you want me to add anything to the google doc about volunteers?
Arliss Collins
@arlissc
Jul 14 2016 14:23
Sure - that would be great - I've got it started but pls feel free to add your thoughts.

Yep - I saw that - I'll have a look through and add any edits I think are useful :)

We can add the session facilitators to this room if it seems appropriate once we've accepted the sessions. Would like to see the number of sessions increase so if you can reach out to your contacts that would be awesome.

Yes - absolutely.
I made the room public (as Achintya likes to remind me!) and through mozillascience - feel free to add anyone who should be there

Hey @arlissc - is a science translator someone who's interested in helping explain science to curious non-experts?
Arliss Collins
@arlissc
Jul 14 2016 14:42
I think it would be more about allowing a facilitator to do a session in another language and having a volunteer do some translation and vice versa for a participant that is has limited English understanding.
Kirstie Whitaker
@KirstieJane
Jul 14 2016 14:43
Ah - so how's that different to a session translator?
Is it a session translator who know some science along with their other language?
(sorry if this is not good timing for you btw - feel free to mute me!)

will not mute - love the input and questions. I guess not sure but maybe this will be addressed on today's call ?

Hmmmm - I think I misunderstood the goal of the google doc
I though this was for volunteers more generall
*generally
Please do have a look and take out things that I've put in that doesn't fit!

np - what was your thoughts ? what was the disconnect ?
it may actually apply.

I've asked for a "help desk wizard", a "duct tape tech guru" and then there are the science and session translators
(which I took from your notes)
