Our topic on today's call was... well, brainstorming topics for future calls - with at least a couple coming out for next time that met with broad approval - since SCIP 2010
is the week after next perhaps August would agree to chat about the program a little (being chairman of the program committee and all).
I'd earlier nominated August to lead a Google Wave tutorial
, which is also still highly anticipated, but he's traveling today unfortunately - so maybe there's room for two 30-minute topics before SCIP hits the following week? What say you 8of12
? Double-header, prefer to do these separately, suggest something else? (Sorry to put you on the spot August ;-) and happy birthday on Saturday by the way.)
In other news, we had some very good suggestions that came out, one highlight included running a separate Google Wave for each teleconference, which should clean up the wave environment considerably (I'm still struggling with how to delete things). Likewise, general consensus that the 9:00 AM Eastern time slot, while better for those outside North America than 1:00 PM EST, could still be improved upon by splitting the difference at 10:30 Eastern for 60 minutes. We'll test this out next week with apologies to our friends in the PacRim; incidentally, I did hear from many who said the earlier time is a deal-breaker, so maybe this is something of a compromise we can settle on for the time being? Let's hope so.
With that, please share any and all topics you would like to offer up for future Friday teleconferences and if you have a suggested guest speaker that's even better. I'll share a couple ideas in comments to this post which were telegraphed to me privately and if the originator wants to claim and clarify please go ahead.
Happy weekend all,
