Research note on this topic: http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/shannon/4-26-2012/list-plots-organizers
The plots-organizers list is an email list for people that are both key organizers in their communities and key contributors to the Public Lab community through work on things such as the website and communications. Typical emails are about upcoming events (sometimes there are speaking/travel opportunities),organizing local chapters, and other topics related to the Public Lab community rather than simply research.
We're basically hoping to expand the list a bit to help connect organizers to one another and also to have a more transparent way to join the list.
We have a weekly call on Thursdays at 9:20PST/11:20CST/12:20EST until around 9:45/11:45/12:45
If you are an organizer, to join, please add Public.Lab on Skype and add your Skype name to the Google Doc.
Criteria (open to revision):
- a nomination (person nominating provides statement about why they are nominating) and 2 supporting nominations (i.e. an existing member nominates someone and 2 others would say “i second that” and “i third that”)
- self-nomination (a short statement about your work and the mission statement) + 2 supporting nominations
- other ideas?
Please list your name if you are nominating and if you are providing a supporting nomination, list your name as well:
Natasia Sidarta (nominated by Liz)
- Natasia has served as the Gowanus Canal Conservancy's GLAM (Gowanus Low Altitude Mapping) project manager since October 2012. She holds undergraduate degrees in conservation biology and ecology. Her interest in mapping / GIS grew out of field research experience in Borneo, where she worked on orangutan conservation through mapping seasonal variations in their feeding ranges. Broadly, she is interested in using maps as a platform for education, raising awareness, and working toward environmental justice. She has roots in Philadelphia.
