I am working to get a community meeting together for this Friday, 5 Feb. It will be in the same world as the community test a week ago. I need feedback about who can attend and at what time. I could do 7 - 8 AM EST(GMT - 5 I believe) or after 2PM EST. We could even do two meetings to help with time zone issues.

This meeting will be about what's to be done now that WL is no longer a Sun research project. I will put a poster in world with a suggested agenda. The url is http://wonderland.sunlabs.com:8080

If you want to participate, please go into the world beforehand, have a look at the agenda and test your voice function.

Morris

On my Ubuntu 9.04 system I loaded package ircii. Then used these commands:

irc morrisford irc.freenode.net
/join #wonderland
/list *
/who *

Is irc via XMPP? Which open source program would you recommend?

IRC is a separate protocol from XMPP. There's a Firefox plug-in called "Chatzilla", a jEdit plug-in, or you can get to it via web at http://webchat.freenode.net/

Won't be necessary if PW runs as well as it did for the last meeting though.

Just a heads up on useful meeting coordination sites if we need to meet in the future:

I'll definitely be there and it looks like at least two other former Sun Labs team members will be able to join as well. Thanks so much to Morris for organizing and to all the rest of you who plan to take some time out of your Saturday to come.

See you in world on Saturday!
Nicole.

4.30pm EST is 4.30am Singapore time :(

Will there be a recording or transcript of the meeting, do you think?

Cheers

I am planning to have a movie recorder running for the meeting. I still have to do some testing with that. I will have to figure out what to do with video file after I have it.

Also, the plan is to have notes about the meeting being written in world into a google doc that I will publish to the net shortly after the meeting. I just need to find someone to do the typing. One of the last loose ends. Any volunteers?

I plan to attend (barring a possible emergency) and can take notes. I may need some instructions for the in-world part.

On another note, I saw many of you at the last community test. I have been following Nicole's group in team meetings as part of a research project on the emergence and evolution of Wonderland. I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to speak with those of you who have been supporting Wonderland as it develops in this new stage. My email address is katen@uoregon.edu. If you would be willing to share your thoughts, experiences and plans for Wonderland in an in-world conversation please send me your email address or get in touch at the meeting.

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Basically all you do is right click on the firefox window and select take control. The firefox acts just like a normal browser at that point. It will already have up the Google doc so just type notes.
I'll be there to handle questions also.

Ok. The community meeting is all set.

The url is http://wonderland.sunlabs.com:8080 and the meeting is tomorrow Saturday 6 Feb at 4:30 PM EST.

It is important that everyone uses headphones in order to not have echo problems.

We ask that everyone participating also join the Wonderland IRC chat channel:

irc://irc.freenode.net/wonderland

We are looking forward to an interesting and useful meeting.

'See' you tomorrow.

Hard to know what time that will be in GMT:
There seems to be three time-zones called 'EST', what one you choosed?
Eastern Summer Time (EST)
Eastern Standard Time – Australia (EST)
Eastern Standard Time – North America (EST)

Second Im messing to get my client voicebridge working.
When I connect to server I get only voice bridge NULL and a loud ring-tone for some seconds, tell me after voice will not work.

Can one tell that ports need to be opened on firewall to make voicebridge on client work?

Sorry for the confusion. It is Eastern Standard Time, ie, east coast of the US.

I feel like the best idea would be to schedule the time to maximize the amount of wonderland players, with a focus on the original team. I think they have the most information to offer getting the larger community up to speed on what is going on, the whos, whats, whys, and hows. I think if it were me in their shoes, I would also feel a certain amount of ownership/leadership over the project as well because darn near the majority of it was designed, engineered, and implemented by them.

That being said, I'm still in for whatever time gets scheduled but I'm rooting for an afternoon time slot :)

Best Regards,
jW

If it helps at all, I found that a meeting at lunchtime ET was after breakfast Pacific time and around dinnertime in Europe.

Why not on the weekend? (Uh-oh. I hear the boo-ing in the background...)

Dinnertime (13:00 GMT/CEST+1) would be ok on friday, weekend also ;)

I think after 2PM EST translates to after 8.00am Saturday morning locally in NZ... Weekend would work better for me (and later in the day the better) if only because I'd have access to a high speed link (don't ask :P ).

We've got a few of us on the other side of the Tasman (in South Australia) so a weekend might possibly work for some....... Alternatively a 20 word or less summary on Monday morning will be fine for me! :P

Of the people that voiced an opinion it looks like weekend would be better and later in the afternoon. However, I saw no responses about desirable times from any current Sun WL folks and I would hope that they would attend.

Sooo, how about 4 PM EST on Saturday.

Just had a request to change to 4:30 PM EST to accomodate Sun team members.

Unfortunately, the only time that I have in the morning is 7AM - 8AM. The idea is that if desired there could be two meetings in order to help with time zone issues, one early morning and one in the afternoon or evening. Or two in the afternoon/evening.

Will try to join, but I first have to look when that time is in old Europe (GMT/CEST), hope its not too deep in the night.

What time would work for you?

Nigel Simpson

Note that the 7-8 AM EST time does rule our attendance by Wonderland staff and community members on the west coast of the U.S.

Just about anytime on a Wednesday or Friday is fine with me. Other days I'll attend too, but may not be voice-capable.

I can and will attend.

I would humbly prefer something not super early in the morning, but if the consensus is 7-8am, then I'm there. I'll just need lots of coffee.

Best Regards,
jW
