Hi James,

As per other conversations that have been happening, I do have a more 
general question.

Do we want, as a group, to have a more 'formal' hackday, unconference 
type day towards the end of the year and try to make it an annual event? 
Perhaps even widen it to be a humanities day in general?

We did run the Textcamp but that domain is being used for something else 
now, so we no longer have access to it. So we would need a new one with 
the relevant resources set up  - I'd imagine a blog / wiki to post 
updates, show off the results and partially to co-ordinate ideas. Only a 

So would we want to have such an event?

What would we like to do there? Can we involve people virtually (irc, 
skype, hangouts or so on)?

What would we call it and can we get the domain registered for it? What 
would we like to see in the space as resources?

Can we get sponsorship or co-organiser to help with space, food, so on 
and so forth?

Who else would be happy to help organise? I am happy to volunteer and 
help co-ordinate but know that my time next year will be limited by 
other factors but do want to see it happen.

I am sure that there are other questions need to be asked. I am pretty 
sure I've posed them somewhere but have forgotten what they are at the 
moment. I think the above are enough to start with though this side of 
Christmas/New Year.

All the best,


Iain Emsley
