Local?

I just want to check: do you expect that the community liaisons would have to be local to London? Thanks. Sharihareswara (WMF) (talk) 00:12, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I think we need at least one representative who is here and local, but people elsewhere can certainly contribute! EdSaperia (talk) 10:56, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Helping us grow the movement

To me that would include attracting not only new users (and readers) but also editor retention. For anyone wanting to make a presentation on, or looking for presentations on such topics, which of the listed thematic areas/channels is this likely to fall into, or would submissions on such topics be rejected? --Kudpung (talk) 05:48, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

That may not fall into any of these categories, but there will be an open track as well which any topics can be submitted to, as well as an unconference. The submissions page has more details. Lawsonstu (talk) 13:12, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
I would consider that to fall under "social software design" - but these aren't conference tracks, they're outreach strands. At this stage, just feel free to submit whatever you like. EdSaperia (talk) 14:24, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Names of streams

Ed, I've changed the names of the open access and education reform streams, because they should be focused on more than just the individuals involved. Do you agree? - Lawsonstu (talk) 14:08, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

... or am I getting the purpose of these pages mixed up with what the Themes pages will be? i.e. the Open access advocates page is named that because its purpose is to encourage/engage in outreach with people who are open access advocates, whereas the Themes/Open access page is to give people an idea about open access. Even though the two pages may have identical content. Maybe I'm over thinking this. - Lawsonstu (talk) 14:17, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
