> Hi all,
> Echoing Maarten, great to see this happening!
> I think we have some pretty solid ideas to get started. Great to see the
> input of Sandra Fouconnier in the pad!
> Shall we try to do a first Skype/Hangout session in the next week? This
> allows us to wrap up OKFest and take things forward from there. I think the
> best time to do it is 18:00 CEST, which means 9:00 for Sarah in the
> morning. Does that make sense? I have set up a doodle to pick a date.

>> Dear all,
>> Great to see this is taking off. Just one response inline:

>>    - Who will be our focus group?
>>     - My intention was to have this be geared specifically towards
>>       contemporary visual artists, to be used by Open GLAM professionals to
>>       promote free licenses by those artists. Over the course of the week,
>>       participants also suggested writers, musicians, all types of creators.
>>       Perhaps we can start with one geared towards contemporary artists, in order
>>       to have something of quality in a timely manner, and move further? Or make
>>       something more encompassing?
>> I think it makes sense to focus on contemporary visual artists at first.
>> Since this is not my field I won't be involved at this point. But please
>> let me know once you've matured and start focussing on for instance
>> musicians and creators of moving images.
>> Best,
>> Maarten
>>    -
>>    - I see this document being something similar to the Wikimedia
>>    Foundation's Annual Report:
>>    http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Annual_Report
>>       - Imagine a document that looks good online and on paper, with
>>       simple calls to action for artists to share their works. If we're pitching
>>       to visual artists, it's important that we have a visually attractive
>>       document with short and simple writing styles and visual examples of free
>>       work.
>>    - Who will print it? Who will support this financially? Will we need
>>    that at all? (The artists I know prefer to hold things in their hand versus
>>    have a PDF online...)
>>     - What names will be on it - as in organizational names. Where will
>>    this document live?
>> I'm on airport wifi right now and it won't let me connect to Ether or
>> PiratePads. So perhaps someone can dump this to the Piratepad or It'll just
>> have to wait until I'm back in the States and not jet lagged :)
>>  Please add your name and contact information. We'll most likely have to
>> have the occasional Skype/Hangout call, too.
>> I also encourage you to share resources, and start brainstorming. I have
>> to tie this into my volunteer capacity since I do not have the pleasure
>> (yet) to work in the GLAM/Open Culture field in a paid capacity at this
>> time, so it'll take a happy group of volunteers to make this develop
>> quickly!
>> Thanks,
>> Sarah
