Meeting Notes

Our collective history

Funding leads

  1. H2020 with XWiki + MaZi/NetCommons + Guifi (benhylau to pitch the idea)
    • Opportunity for more tech
    • Seems like there is a fit with how they work with Guifi folks (see: http://nethood.org/slides/barcelona_currencies/antoniadis_et_al_barcelona_paper_draft.pdf)
    • They have grant admin and writing expertise
    • Maybe a good fit with granting trends and their current roadmap and planning
    • Next step… set up a meeting?
    • dcwalk: Make clear what do we want to get out of this, and be mindful of extractive practices
    • dcwalk: can this wait until after dec?
    • dcwalk: what is xwiki role?
      • xwiki already in 2020 horizon grant partnership
    • dcwalk: what is our capacity?
  2. H2020 with XWiki + zelf (benhylau + ansuz spoke with zelf briefly)
    • Did not discuss, wait for ansuz
  3. Mozilla Foundation (benhylau got details from Mehan, community networks + open-source project areas)
    • “active community contributing and using the project”
    • “path to sustainability”
    • low overhead review process
    • benhylau: what would be the pitch
      • could make a case that tomesh is there?
      • meshable device
      • p2p workshops
  4. Norway national grants (benhylau spoke with Stig about possible collaborative project ideas)
    • Did not discuss, wait for ansuz
