  • Publicity

- Michaela to send through an email later in the week with an approximate place in the park – We can all forward these emails to our contacts

  • Participation and Contribution

- Cinzia to speak on strategies - Michaela observed different registers of discussion at Disclosures and asks: How was this achieved? -- Neil observed that Ian introduced the bar camp
-- He asked everyone present to give two key words
- Michaela asked Neil to talk about this at PubliCamp
-- Neil's description: Everyone who comes to a barcamp tries to crack the problem – In the process, they develop shared knowledge – Method likened barcamps to short-term think tank
- Cinzia's observation: some people just want to know what we want them to do – but this is tricky when it comes to self-organization…Provocation can be v. successful
- Marsha wonders: How will we make sense of all this after the fact? Perhaps the minute taker could be sensitive to certain trends: Neil mentioned themes, ideas, contexts, strategies …
- Marsha suggests hanging the minutes on a clothesline
- Cinzia will take charge of the whiteboard
-- She’ll collect people’s keywords
-- She’ll figure out how people
- Any chance of getting in touch with a local historian to hear more about why we’re in Kennington Park and not at Speaker’s Corner
