My digital notebooks are full of scribbles about user groups, determining which are active, which need help with meeting space or other things, contact information for various group leaders.
ways to measure the health of user groups
things that are inputs to technology innovation
things that are outputs of said innovation (and the industry it supports)
common narratives when talking about the technology industry in Portland
activities that may be useful for welcoming people new to Portland (or new to technology work in Portland)
potential partners for said activities
more possible metrics on the value of all of these things
ways to pitch these ideas to people who might help
a recipe for quiche
an outline for a book on community tech event organizing
And so on.
One of my notes says “document everything”. I do this, or I try, but right now I don’t know which parts to share.
What would you like to know?
