Coders and developers are invited to join ORG's tech volunteers at Mozilla to plan out how we try to monitor UK filtering, as it becomes more ubiquitous.
The agenda will include an introduction to the project by ORG staff and will then lead onto a brainstorming session to discuss what the project should do in the short-term.
Due to a limited capacity of 35 people, it is essential that attendees RSVP to the event in advance.
Join or login to comment.
An excellent first meeting - though I thought we could have done better at engaging remote participants. Sorry to those who couldn't hear or see us properly (or at all!)
I really enjoyed meeting you all and I'm looking forward to helping build and ship the initial improvements we discussed :o)

A great start.
I'm not going to be able to come to this due to illness. If anyone wants to take my place at (admittedly) short notice, please feel free.

Have come down with a cold, would hate to infect everyone. See you at the next one.
Sounds interesting but I'd much rather find ways to subvert the filtering than just monitor it. Mozilla would seem to be in an ideal position to thwart this kind of thing.

I sympathise, I can think of nothing more subversive than total transparency of the apparatus however.
I would like to attend but I am mainly interested as a user of the results. Hence if developers are the priority and places are short I will not attend. Please advise.

Malcolm: fair comment. Can we see how many places remain closer to the time?
Second to that - being more of a designer than a developer, if someone feels they would be able to make a more technical contribution, I'll be happy to give up my place.
Dropping out, as from your email, I'll go for the second meeting for the less development-orientated people.

Dropping out also. I can code, but suspect there will be people on the waiting list better suited to this project than me. Definitely interested in attending the second meeting if/when it goes ahead!
Hi all, the email was really to ask those who have RSVP'd as yes to just confirm that they are able to attend, in case people don't turn up while others have been turned away. If you are a coder or a developer and are keen to get involved you will be more than welcome at the event, so please don't feel deterred!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
