The Barnraiser

The Barnraiser is a 1-page daily "newspaper" we're publishing during the PL Barnraising as part of the Documentation Committee (DocCom).

We see it as a lighthearted (but hard-hitting journalistic) way to summarize and share in a succinct, low-burden, but regular way, what's going on at our busiest and most productive event of the year!

Reporters

Email jeff@publiclab.org and/or plots-barnraising@googlegroups.com to join the Barnraiser's "staff"! Despite limited page space, we're happy for any help we can get!

We're specifically looking for:

  • reporters to cover Barnraising events, sessions, and culture
  • photographers to get great front-page images
  • editors to help polish/trim/layout the final paper
  • publishers to get up early to print & distribute

Publishing

We'll use the talk page of this wiki page as a (chaotic) staging area to collect material and links over the course of each day. Please dump content there with your name -- and/or just take paper notes and come to the editorial meeting at the end of the day!
