A number of volunteers are hard at work getting things done for #council-of-prague
@aogunwole is taking the lead on some agenda / schedule wrangling.
I was recently looking at the W3C. They are having an event in Lyon, France, right before things kick off in Prague. It’s called TPAC – aka “Technical Plenary, and Advisory Committee Meeting”. I’ll quote from their FAQ https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC/2018/FAQ:
TPAC is the acronym for our annual “All Working Group meetings, Technical Plenary, and Advisory Committee Meeting week”. TPAC has three components:
- Meetings of as many W3C Working Groups who choose to meet during this week;
- A “plenary day”;
- A meeting of the W3C Advisory Committee.
So, not too dissimilar from what we see EthMagicians Councils evolving into over time.
They are also making a call to Working Groups to flesh out their breakout sessions. Breakout sessions are the sessions which are not “plenaries” – that is, not all Council sessions.
See their Breakout session wiki for ideas and background on how they make a call for sessions https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC/2018/SessionIdeas
For our own agenda building, we’re mixing the concept of Working Groups (Rings) with Session topics a little bit, in our Call for Rings https://hackmd.io/DaJhrasLQteUk3IwX5bQAg
And, we could probably use MORE explanation inviting people to suggest topics.
We’ll need to write more, maybe have a call for anyone that wants to run a topic, and certainly send email to all the participants encouraging them to get prepped.
