Other ideas on the table

Suggest for breakouts

  • Security work at W3C (Dan Romascanu, Wendy Seltzer, Mark Nottingham)
    • "It looks like IETF Vancouver (the week before Shenzhen) is brewing to be very security/privacy focused, including not only discussion in my WG (HTTPbis), but also the Applications Area Working Group, possibly at the plenary session, and of course within the Security Area. It might be worth devoting some time to these subjects (which probably falls into the "privacy as more than DNT" bucket), and possibly an update from the IETF perspective."
  • Charles: How to approach work that has a strong policy component.

Dropped sessions (after research)

  • Vehicle API
  • Preview calls

Other suggestions for 2013 not yet taken into account above

  • Newly joined members from China have requested a session on IPR policies (2-3 hours). Angel has started the converstion with legal team to see whether this is feasible
  • Increasing participation (especially in WGs)
  • (Jean-Pierre Evain)

Suggestions for Scribing for TPAC2013 ( from Wendy and Josh )

  • 2 projectors, one for slides, the other for irc minutes
  • offer accounts with cloudirc or similar service (Web service sets up a persistent connection to the irc server, so you don't lose your nick or backlog when the local connection drops)
  • get everyone in the room to Present+ him/herself (or use tech,badge-in with a scanner or NFC reader)
  • large-print name cards for the table to make it easier for scribes to identify speakers
  • 2-sided name tags with extra large-print names and nicks, and the language(s) people speak
  • table microphones near every participant would be great, or multiple mics with someone walking around to shuttle them to speakers
  • recording: the minimum requirement is audio recording with video recording as a wouldn't it be lovely requirement
  • transcription
  • Translation on the fly with Mibbit client and Google Translate? [This has been broken for months --Coralie]
