Evangelism Reps Facebook Group

What to do with Evangelism Reps FB group: Do we have an opinion?

Context: Group started by :cheilmann when he was running what was effectively an earlier version of TechSpeakers. Organized rep / community meetups, etc. Not specifically technical reps. Potch is an admin, but most active adminning is done by the community.

Facebook as a lousy space for convo. but people are there.

Current discussion on the group is a complaint by a Rep who feels that the TechSpeakers program wasn't sufficiently inclusive or aware of the existing Evangelism Reps group. The formal Reps program is also interested in doing something with this group. Our feeling: any changes should be driven by peers in the group, but whatever happens, we should probably have a hand in facilitating it.

Set it invite only, then as DevRel make it clear it's unofficial. "As DevRel, we're not here, but this is your space." Had issues with porn getting posted to the group earlier in the year, so part of this is preventative damage control.

sole: Empower them, ask them to be responsible, and provide pointers to official channels. (General consensus to follow this path.)

Mozlando Planning

Let's start dumping ideas for discussions/sessions in MozLando here so we don't do it all at the last minute :D

Shuffle Speaking Order?

["Jason", "Dan", "Dietrich", "Havi", "Potch", "Sole", "Nick", "Jen", "Belén"].sort(function () { return Math.random() > 0.5 });

Now that we're a real team, maybe we should switch up who speaks when? Yep! +1 I was glad to be last for a while, because I was learning what this meeting is. But now that I've done enough of them, I feel fine being anywhere in the order. Maybe it's good to keep new folks last / later for the first few months. (+1)
