..." taken up [from sharper]
16:10:30 [Mario]
Yes, thanks very much!!!
16:11:50 [christos]
sh: feedback was good but we need to think about some cahnges
16:12:33 [christos]
marko: apart from the first 2 speakers the rest of the webinar went quite well
16:12:54 [christos]
marko: the length was ok
16:13:22 [christos]
marko: it is difficult to follow the presentation and the slides
16:13:33 [christos]
marko: interactivity is a problem
16:13:42 [Zakim]
16:13:44 [Mario]
16:14:03 [christos]
marko: the panel was good but we might need more time for questions
16:14:32 [Mario]
zakim, unmute me
16:14:32 [Zakim]
Mario should no longer be muted
16:14:45 [sharper]

16:15:44 [Mario]
zakim, mute me
16:15:44 [Zakim]
Mario should now be muted
16:16:57 [christos]
giorgio: the purpose of the questions was to focus the questions on some topics... aparrently we couldn;t achieve that due to the technical problems and the interactivity
16:17:53 [christos]
shadi: problems aside, when it started it went quite well...
16:18:35 [christos]
shadi: irc would allow interactivity but it would complicate people... I like the idea of not having presentations
16:19:07 [christos]
shadi: trying to find a solution about the audio strem
16:19:24 [Mario]
A very good idea. But we have to have a microphone test before.
16:19:36 [giorgio]
16:19:46 [sharper]
ack g
16:20:17 [christos]
giorgio: adding another audio chanel only for output will limit interactivity
16:20:41 [giorgio]
ok thanks
16:20:52 [Mario]
What about using Teamspeak, it works better?
16:21:14 [christos]
shadi: I'm thinking of audio + text strems from irc or twitter
16:21:17 [markel]
I think that even worse than interactivity problems was the quality of some calls
16:21:18 [giorgio]
16:21:32 [sharper]
ack g
16:21:53 [shawn]
16:21:56 [christos]
giorgio: something it could help might be have a person to handle the microphone
16:22:17 [Mario]
16:22:18 [shawn]
q+ to ask about the handling of q&a
16:22:39 [christos]
sharper: Maybe he problem was that the presentations and the questions were quite quick
16:22:44 [shawn]
ack me
16:22:45 [Zakim]
shawn, you wanted to ask about the handling of q&a
16:23:39 [christos]
shawn: I am not sure if the technical problems was the main problem
16:23:55 [sharper]
16:24:28 [giorgio]

16:25:03 [markel]
+ 1 Mario
16:25:22 [christos]
mario: i think we have to ensure the audio quality of the speaker
16:25:55 [sharper]
ack m
16:25:57 [christos]

Mario should now be muted
16:26:46 [christos]
sharper: sound quality is dfficult to ensure...
16:26:46 [Mario]
Skype has a strong number limit in conferences.
16:26:48 [shawn]
q+ to question landline costs versus travel
16:27:28 [christos]
sharper: most of the opportunity for QA was in the end and some people could ahve been tired... forgot what they listened...
16:27:50 [sharper]
ack me
16:27:51 [christos]
sharper: the muting and unmuting wan not the main problem but
16:27:56 [sharper]
ack g
16:28:06 [christos]
we could practice better
16:28:24 [christos]
giorgio: I aggre on the quality
16:28:57 [christos]
giorgio: a littli bit of practice ahead could help
16:29:29 [shawn]
q+ to say separate irc channels?
16:29:36 [shawn]
q+ to say G did great!
16:29:42 [christos]
giorgio: as for raising hand and muting.... shawn did a great job... but I couldn't follow so much information in parallel
16:30:26 [christos]
giorgio: a suggestion for the next format could be to go directly to the panel after a short presentation of each presenter
16:30:39 [shawn]
ack me
16:30:39 [Zakim]
shawn, you wanted to question landline costs versus travel and to say separate irc channels? and to say G did great!
16:30:41 [christos]
giorgio: this way it could more intresting
16:30:50 [Mario]
I find it is good idea, Giorgio.
16:31:04 [christos]
shawn: giorgio, you did a great job at moderationg
16:31:17 [giorgio]
too kind!
16:31:49 [christos]
shawn: if we want to use irc we might need to use separate channel
16:32:11 [christos]
shawn: to separate the logistics from the chat
16:32:50 [markel]
good point about the costs
16:33:05 [shawn]
zakim, mute me
16:33:05 [Zakim]
Shawn should now be muted
16:33:09 [christos]
shawn: one of the things about the cost... we are doing this instead of travel... so this might put it into different context
16:33:30 [Mario]
W3 people, you could see, that the VOIP connection goes right!? - that about costs :-)
16:33:40 [christos]
sharper: people in universties might have problems to convince about the need of this cost

Sorry, couldn't find user - on
16:36:43 [shawn]
q+ to say a suggestion for next step for this one: ask presenters to fill and correct transcript (e.g., Nadia seemed to be reading from notes) -- will need to be firm about them not *adding* information
16:36:56 [sharper]
action: sharper to update with email and irc minutes comments for the next symposium

16:39:03 [christos]
shadi: I could use some help on that though
16:39:27 [giorgio]

giorgio: i agree with the idea of filling the transcripts
16:40:30 [Mario]
I will send you also my script of the discussion.
16:40:53 [shawn]
[ transcript should *not* be edited beyond clarification of what was said. that is, it should not contain any information not said (unless clearly indicated as an addition ]
16:40:55 [christos]
sharper : we could publish some working notes
16:41:08 [christos]
sharper : before the trascript
16:41:31 [giorgio]
i would suggst working on text only file
16:41:46 [christos]
merkel: I could convert the notes from a word ot a html document
16:42:06 [shawn]
[ Shawn supports publishing verbatium transcript as HTML ]
16:42:38 [christos]
shaper: I could use a tool to make it into html and publish that as working note
16:42:39 [giorgio]
+1 simon
16:43:15 [shawn]
[ Shawn wonders if a truely edited and enhanced transcript becomes a "Meeting Record" or something - as ooppsed to a verbatium with the (inaudible, etc. left in)]
16:43:20 [christos]
giorgio: I sent the notes to the list
16:43:35 [markel]
16:44:21 [giorgio]

16:46:31 [shawn]
s/higher level wiki /higher level W3C wiki /
16:47:07 [christos]
giorgio: If i was to do it I would send text files and merge them ... hopefully they will not change the same areas... and there will not be a conflict
16:47:20 [christos]
giorgio: I think it would be easier..
16:47:43 [Mario]
16:47:44 [christos]
markel: is it necesary... is the transcript so bad?
16:48:06 [christos]
shaper: the first papers might have problems due to audio quality
16:48:55 [christos]
markel: the problems are mainly on the presentations so we ha the slides too... the most important part though is the q&A

giorgio: we don;t have any timeframe for that
16:55:25 [shadi]
16:55:42 [giorgio]
16:55:42 [christos]
sharper: timeframe should be 1 and 1 and a half month
16:55:58 [christos]
but with christmas it should take longer
