Participant Evaluations & Metrics: what did we learn? (Nathan)

(Helpful post-Festival links)

  • Roundtable Discussion:
    • What did we learn?
    • What would we do differently next time?
    • What's the best way to keep the momentum going around "Learning, Freedom and the Web?"


  • Get our hands dirty and workshop some of the new Drumbeat Festival project. 
  • Next steps:
    • 1) Boil the project story into five key sentences
    • 2) Use those as headlines for a crisp one-page description
    • 3) Create simple project infographics that tell the story visually
  • Tips on how to tell your project story: http://www.drumbeat.org/describe-your-project

  • Random Hacks of Kindness 2.0 - global event. (Heather)


  • Notes
  • What did we learn?
  • so many projects, barely had time to participate in other people's projects
  • would love to have one big project open to developer community, and then participate in other people's projects
  • Some sessions not that accessible if you jumped in half-way

  • Brett: +1
  • some sort of common strategy for how to deal with people coming in half-way
  • From Matt's Jukes' blog:
  • "the fact that many of the conversations were ongoing from notional session to session meant it was difficult to just drop in for an hour sometimes – it felt like coming half way though a movie."
  • The need to get everyone on same page / have more conceptual discussions sometimes stood in the way of building / doing
  • didn't have clear process of how to go from background discussion to rolling our sleeves up
  • people wanted to talk about big things

  • logistical change:
  • clearer in schedule: wasn't sure which
  • more flexibility in schedule: easier to show where you can jump in, stuff going on all day vs. pure open-ended play space

  • Hackbus: organizing process could be more distributed

  • how to keep momentum going:
  • social media strategy
    1. drumbeat twitter stream
  • tons of great blog posts

  • Learning, freedom and the web blog planet
  • Encourage people to join main Drumbeat list

  • More integration of local scene
  • More continuity and flow
