I'd like to add a more "old school" proposal; Let's meet in person to
discuss all the questions that have come up over the last few days. What
I have in mind is something like a day-long workshop somewhere in
Europe, and mabye a second one in the US. I know that this will be
difficult to organize but I think it would be beneficial in at least
(1) Trust: it's a lot easier to begin to build relationships of trust if
you meet people in person.
(2) Motivation: from my experience with similar projects, people will be
much more motivated to contribute to a look project like this for an
extended period of time if they have met the people they have worked
(3) Exchange with other organizations: if we organized such a workshop,
we could invite people from other organizations to tell us about their
experiences and what kind of assistance they would expect from an
organization like swb. btw, a friend just told me about the "Tactical
Technology Collectice" (https://tacticaltech.org/), which seems to
pursue a very similar agenda.
(4) Visibility: swb can only help people if they know that the
organization exists. To this end, we could combine internal discussions
with some kind of public event.
What do you think?
