Declaration FlowChat Translation Project
Owen: we could focus on the project of translating the declaration flowchart
Jaq: we are trying to come up with what the best method of doing that. I have made a few changes to the blog in terms of its structure.
Marco: do we have translators to do this project?
Owen: The Spanish is done, some other languages are promised.
Marco: I will work on the Italian.
Jackie: would it makes sense to have a list of names and languages of what they cover?
Susan: we already have that in a Google Doc.
The nycga web site vis a vi Translation
Jackie: I went to a tech seminar the other day and I kept hearing the word blog. So I went there and tried to make various documents in pdf.
Marco: I think it would be better to have both pdf and text embedded.
Jackie: I am trying to organize the nycga.
Owen reports on last Spokes Council meeting.
Marco: I think we should change meeting day time. I am going to create an online survey where we can choose a better time and place.
Access to occupywallst.org.
Marco: we should figure out how to get access directly di occupywallst.org because right now all our work ends up on the nycga.net blow which is very difficult to find so I will try to contact those who administer the site and find out what’s up with that.
Jackie: I thought that our public face was the blog.
Marco: perhaps, but tech ops says that nycga.net is an intranet.
Owen: we should try to communicate more with one another.
Owen: there is a new internet site for nycga at occupywallstreet.net.
Marco: we should get involved with translations for that site as well.
Posting Agenda Items
Jackie: what are other groups doing?
Marco: most groups seems to post calls for agenda items in the forums.
Consensus: let’s post them in the forum from now on.
