Summary items - actionable for ESIP
- Semantic add-on to ESIP MediaWiki-
- Metric – ID contributors input/output and increase by x over t
- Fix “watch” page
- Deki (Japanese for smart) Wiki “media wiki”
Sitemap Watch pages Rss Opt – in

- VIDEO CONFERENCE (Webex, skype)
Limits Connectivity increase Small videos like skype rather than one large video Active chat (IRC, SKYPE CHAT), possible for archive, how fast can you type?
- Protocol for chat?
Webex – raise hand Genesis – ESIP Vyew Record video – very important events NOAA and NASA blocks skype, they need to think about it, and perhaps make it a requirement Gmail chat Webcast and archives (podcast) Viddler – comment on video Show – me – do?
- Hierarchy of meetings
Heterarchy of VO Interfacing via telecom → shorten time but increase what gets accomplished Get Organized before!!! Send out the presentation before hand so that people have had a chance to view/review it ahead of time and then the time during the telecom can be spend DISCUSSING. Same time Leader –focus on highly targeted → outcome Why gather? What we will do? Be aware of spin – up time to participate! e.g. shuttle analogy (bus not space) # of people in a session = 2? Product out of every element Leader to delegate Agenda items and added on fly – by participates Schedule by preparedness, meeting are set up in time space instead of prepared space Why 1 hour? Unintended/accidental participation for some initiative, Do we need goals for this? Rss/Atom – email Notification? Working? Highlight from different perspective COP – community of practice ideas --- involves how to take advantage of this for ESIP : broadens perspective What tools? EPA e.g. computational toxicology Strategic planning is more structured, not the same as unintended
e.g. Sci COP (EPA) Ontology – driven organization Federation was set up based on “The Age of Unreason” Cluster can be a COP + formed anytime then transition into a standing committee e.g. AQ Cluster → GEOSS structure use wiki’s
Participation numbers Standards metrics did not work → nuggets Social capitol Capture
- Roles and Responsibility
Pragmatism made known to leads
- What are drivers?
Internal forces External GEOSS has same issue → uses “CALL for participation” (CESIP use this)
- Rights and Obligations
Delegation Leave a record Align with what is happening
- Expose what you are doing!!!
