Discussion and notes

Visioneers Meeting 8/31/15

Participants: Erin R., Annie B., Dan K., Rebecca F., Denise H., Bruce C., Ken K. and Jamie R.

  • Denise H. suggested Lavalier microphones and an ipad or dedicated laptop to improve remote participation.
  • The DC area for summer meetings has issues (cost, hotel coverage). Asheville's new collaborative workspace and NOAA connections are positives.
  • Highlight the success story of the Drone Cluster as something that ESIP can facilitate.
  • Visioneers could come up with a new name that combines BOF and Hackerspace, i.e. a place to connect that can also be action-oriented.
  • Winter Meeting Theme could align with common-theme suggestions from ESIP meeting (Denise H. to share G-doc) surveys AND the needs of NOAA and NASA.
  • Ask our NOAA and NASA connections about theme ideas .
  • Next Visioneers Meeting in 2-3 weeks (Erin R. or AB to suggest meeting time)
