There is a breakout session today titled "How to work with the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force (COGA)" at https://www.w3.org/2021/10/TPAC/

How to work with the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force (COGA)
3:00 PM-4:00 PM UTC
Breakout session
Jennifer Delisi
Rain Breaw Michaels
Cover the types of cognitive and learning disabilities and differences that members of COGA (the Cognitive Accessibility Task Force) (and truthfully other members of W3C groups) may have, and how our collaboration processes across the W3C can better include the valuable perspectives of these individuals.
Goal
Enable the various groups across the W3C to engage effectively with the COGA Task Force. Identify the tooling, communication styles, and processes that can support more inclusive and successful collaboration.

Related: COGA is also mentioned in Solid Protocol's Accessibility Considerations (Web Content Accessibility): https://solidproject.org/TR/protocol#web-content-accessibility

I have created a repo for the glossary at https://github.com/solid/solidproject.org/blob/glossary/pages/glossary/glossary.md so let the group editing begin. I may have a comics illustrator on tap to do illustrations for it.

I've added a PRE-PROPOSAL to the notifications-panel meeting agenda (held tomorrow) to request that each Use Case that the group proposes should be reviewed by DEIT: https://github.com/solid/notifications-panel/blob/main/meetings/2021-10-28.md#use-cases-and-requirements . Just a heads-up. If group agrees and DEIT is interested as well, that'd be great. What do you all think?

@jeff-zucker
An interesting inclusion example ... the Inrupt definition of IRI is "IRI
Internationalized Resource Identifier. An IRI is similar to standard web URI but allows for internationalized characters such as the umlaut Ä, or the Greek letter Δ." I am going to replace it with examples in Arabic and Chinese.

@jeff-zucker
I won't be able to attend tomorrow, sorry. I made a comment relevant to DEIT here https://github.com/solid/solidos/issues/88#issuecomment-963513647, would appreciate your feedback.

I've created minutes/ for meeting minutes in https://github.com/solid/deit . Pushed today's minutes as well as the ones that were linked from the README as separate documents. Updated the README linking to it.

If we have URLs to other minutes somewhere, let's make sure to add them to the repo. I couldn't find them.

Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
I've created https://github.com/orgs/solid/teams/deit and added people as members. If you'd like to be added, please ping. It's initial purpose was to notify the members for reviews.
Oops. that's meetings/ not minutes/ above. The repo is correct though.

oops the connection was a 80.000down/40.000up of vodafone but proved not stable enough

I’m happy to introduce @growliegrl_twitter to our DEI group! Just had a great convo about her work at the World Ethical Data Foundation and thought this would be a good place for her to learn more about Solid and what we’re all up to!
