Review of cleaned up wiki

Webizen wiki

<jeff> https://www.w3.org/wiki/Webizen#Non_Benefits

koalie: Three new participants (Alexandre, Amy, Ann) since our last meeting
... In reply to feedback I had gotten, I clarified at the top that we're open and public, that feedback is welcome
... in e-mail or IRC.

<jeff> koalie: When logged in, click the star at the top right to "watch" it. Or use view history. I've done editor work to compile feedback thus far. Art Barstow has edited the wiki as well

<jeff> [Koalie gives a tour of the new webizen site]

Jeff: as we add information, we need to review it
... looking at the package of benefits... electoral college needs to be fleshed out

koalie: The number of views has rocketed since last week. Here's a progression:

Friday 14-Mar: 2,167

Monday 17-Mar: 5,392 5,586 5,807

today: 10,680 views.

koalie: Here is what I suspect contributed to driving traffic:

koalie: You can see who mentioned "webizen" on Twitter. Don't scroll down too far lest it become irrelevant to us.

koalie: yes, we got some buzz. People appear to be curious

Action items

https://www.w3.org/wiki/Webizen#Low-key_launch_Comm_plan

Coralie: keep open please, I have not fleshed out a low-key comm plan

W3C Systems team aspects of Webizen program, (summary)

Jeff: it would be nice to make it more interactive, know up front when something is proposed if it's doable

Coralie: I can take the ongoing action to bring to Ted's attention any new proposed benefit that involves systeam and seek his opinion on feasability (1) and cost (2)

<scribe> ACTION: Coralie to bring to Ted's attention any new proposed benefit that involves systeam and seek his opinion on feasability (1) and cost (2) [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2014/03/20-webizen-minutes.html#action01]

Jeff: The action item Veronica took was related to discounts
... What sort of discounts level to devcampus, VS etc. are high-enough to attract people, but not high-enough that they give the services away.

<scribe> ACTION: Veronica to figure what sort of discounts level to devcampus, VS etc. are high-enough to attract people, but not high-enough that they give the services away. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2014/03/20-webizen-minutes.html#action02]

Electoral college

Strawman: Webizen Electoral College [Robin]

Jeff: W3M might be difficult to persuade with the proposal such as Robin wrote it
... if you don't mind I'll take the action item to write up a new one based on it.

<scribe> ACTION: Jeff to write a proposal to write up what an electoral college would look like. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2014/03/20-webizen-minutes.html#action03]

Design: Active participation in W3C community or Webizen?

Veronica: This isn't quite clear if the design is to get more active participation or show support

Jeff: The design is the latter.
... For USD 100 we shouldn't let individuals participate in WGs
... The idea of having some representation on the AC doesn't seem bad to me
... Could be a very useful one.
... If we have a million webizens and they result in 10K AC reps, it will be a little unmanageable
... That's on the table for discussion at this point.

Next meeting

Jeff: I anticipate to have my action item done in a week's time
... and you have actions as well
... next meeting next Thursday 11am ET?
... I'll ask Maria to set up a time.

<veronica> ok for me

wfm

Jeff: AOB?

[nope]

<veronica> thanks koalie!

thanks veronica, jeff
