Top 3 Projects for the year

Another Drupaller found my name in the comments to the DoOcracy wiki page, probably following Angie Byron's listing of Drupal Community Philosophies.

Since our interests seemed to tend to run along the same lines, I outlined some of what I want to be working on that just happen to be key goals for 2009 also (that I should come up with an actual plan for doing...)

PWGD needs

To be posted as some kind of sub-project element on PWGD.org, which will launch initially with one project: itself.

lowest cost fiscal sponsorship possible

  • assuming it has to fit in our mission? although it does say,

VisionsUnite functionality: I might go to X event ... anyone else?

PWGD / VisionsUnite feature idea: ability to post things to your calendar, shared with your friends (or specific friends) as "I'm interested in maybe going to this, especially if other people are also"

For example, I would post this in that way:

Struggle in Lavender and Red!
Harvey Milk, the Coors Boycott, and the Stonewall Rebellion
QUEERS FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THE RIGHT WING - 1969 to the present
an LGBT history slideshow/video documentary

Saturday, Jan. 3rd - 7:00 pm
The Action Center
284 Amory St. (The Brewery), Jamaica Plain

Visions Unite... with People Who Give a Damn?

Draft of e-mail to send announcing the alpha launch of PWGD

Why join PWGD when every group wants you to join it already?

PWGD gives control to the people in the network. It ensures that should the group you join go awry, the connections and resources and knowledge and relationships are not lost.

Every

e-mail, phone banking, fliers

creating a volunteer information distribution system where

The site will function like the real PWGD, but in lieu of the functionality to propose any project, we'll just be able to organize our support for PWGD.

Office manager job description

My goal is to help build a world where we all people have the most power possible over our own lives.

The impetus for working with someone comes from my lack of progress on that which is most important to me.

Hiring help is obviously more about time than money, but in the interests of calculating sustainability some items are marked with return on investment...

Thoughts on a shareable ridesharing dataset (to RideBuzz)

Sent to Jeff Brown, Executive Director, RideBuzz (non-profit), Amherst, Massachusetts, in response to an introductory e-mail that included this description:

Influences

For the new-forming Radical Research Collective, we asked ourselves to share our influences (and the project we want to work on). Here's my attempt.

Influences

Number one largest influence on my understanding of the economy and some other aspects of society:

Jane Jacobs.
I read her in books, though some essays are online (some bad links) http://www.preservenet.com/theory/Jacobs.html

On not having the right to vote: felony disenfranchisement

More than two percent of otherwise eligible-to-vote citizens of the United States of America are denied the right to vote for felony convictions.

In total numbers and in the political tendencies of the disenfranchised, that's about the same as denying Jews the vote in the U.S.

in 1998 "an estimated 3.9 million U.S. citizens are disenfranchised, including over one million who have fully completed their sentences."
