- August 14, 2012 in Meeting Notes

# Team Meeting

Team meeting [13/08]. around 1.30 pm UK time. (12:30 UTC)

## Agenda

## Updates (paste your notebook link in here [name](link)):
* [Naomi Lillie](http://notebook.okfn.org/2012/08/13/week-ahead-naomi-lillie-24/)
* [Kat Braybrooke](http://notebook.okfn.org/2012/08/13/week-ahead-kat-braybrooke-35/)
* [Joris Pekel](http://notebook.okfn.org/2012/08/13/week-ahead-joris-pekel-15/)
* [Sam Leon](http://notebook.okfn.org/2012/08/13/weekly-update-sam-leon-25/)

## Events (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgKCQJHmtLY_dGNER3RLRWJTbjItNzBBNnc2aDNuUnc&pli=1#gid=0)
* Nothing new to [email protected] [MF / NL]

## Questions
* Quick question from Kat (here) – can we make Notebook private so that it stops showing up on Google searches? 🙂

## AOB
* Update: OKFest general travel bursaries being decided *today* with applicants notified later this week. Note that over 100 have applied for a limited amount of funding, and that preference will (as before) be given to those who are directly participating in the festival. There is also a separately-adminstered bursary for ‘development practitioners and coders’ which Sida is deciding on in Norway. These applicants will also be notified by beginning of next week. – Kat

## Notes

* Meg is the new foundation adminstrator. Inducted by Naomi.
* 23 people will be funded for OKFest!
* Move away from using etherpads (for sensitive stuff), apart from uber-public quick sharing of thoughts – use GDocs instead – take to e-mail (JP)
* Joris to look into private notepad posts – maybe making it a ‘members only’ blog
* Note from LJ: Sysadmin already have a ticket about notebook posts so please talk
with them. I’ve done this sort of transition before and it’s never as
easy as people think – so any requirements for the new notebook system
should be gathered together in [the existing trac ticket](http://trac.okfn.org/ticket/1267).
i’m afraid posts (for now!) are supposed to be public and that means google. If people don’t want to publish into then it shouldn’t be in a notebook post. If there’s specific worries they can bring them to me.
* Autumn comm mtg dates 15th-18th October, location tbc – Dec Summit to be clarified (JG)
* JG mails LJ re: Summit in December

## Actions
* JP to take etherpad / GDoc discussion to e-mail
* JG to mail LJ re: Summit in December

#Highlights

* This call will be poorly attended over next few months due to trips and holidays. Joris to track events and mails around to staff in advance of calls

## Events
* Open Space South West – An unconference for the public sector in the South West, Friday 14th September in Exeter.
* JP to ask Darwin if he’s passionate about town planning in Devon 😉
* Event support – Open Access Week – India
* We (Open Access India) would like to have a two event (Symposium/Conference) on ‘Open Data, Education and Research in Agriculture’ at New Delhi during October 2012, Open Access Seek. The probable venue would be NAAS/NRCPB/IARI, Pusa Campus, New Delhi. We are looking for like minded organizations having interests in the theme of the event to conduct the event aspartners/sponsors and support it by any of the means feasible. We are looking for participation of scientists, students, researchers and policy makers of NARS and other stakeholders in the event. Please confirm what kind or support OKFN could extend for the event.
* Rufus/LauraJ have already said cannot provide financial support; however, Kat or someone else may come out to speak/network during this week. NL happy to assist with network making!
* OKFest travel update (Naomi & LauraJ)
* Accomodation, travel, ticket etc – NL to talk with DP and KB tomorrow to clarify ‘official stance’ and e-mail round

## AOB
* Note for all: OKFest website to be updated heavily by end of this week, with more clear instructions re: ‘core’ vs. ‘satellite’ portions & Topic Stream details. There will also be another round of Travel Bursaries released later this month (details TBA based on partner funds).
