Discussion and notes[edit | edit source]
Visioneers Meeting 8/31/15[edit | edit source]
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)
