> Hi All,
> I am writing in my capacity as one of the volunteer coordinators of Labs <http://okfnlabs.org/> :-)
> I am writing to ask for local groups to nominate *one* person as a contact point for tech-type stuff in their local group using this following really simple form (just 3 fields!)
> Simple Google Form for Nominating Tech Contact <https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/forms/d/1Cdr1sduin4G1I3upWVKA0k4f8_aZES7xj9qYwnhCwck/viewform>
> Why am I asking? (See also this labs github issue <https://github.com/okfn/okfn.github.com/issues/329>)
> - We want to be able to contact local groups to get tech-related stories for the regular Labs newsletter <https://github.com/okfn/okfn.github.com/issues/322>
> - We want to be able to notify local groups about the regular Labs hangouts <http://okfnlabs.org/events/hangouts/> and invite people to attend and share the cool stuff they have been doing locally
> - We want to find out more about the cool tech-related projects and events that local groups are doing (cf the newsletter)
> What will be expected of the nominated person?
> - There is minimal time commitment - minimum would be 10m a month to respond to a "anything interesting happen last month" ping and to forward on the newsletter
> - Would hope that nominated person would participate the Labs forum <https://discuss.okfn.org/c/open-knowledge-labs> - but not required
> - The nomination need not be permanent - perhaps just for an initial 6m
> Regards,
> Rufus
