Draft Agenda for 10.1.2010

If you want to discuss something at the meeting, add it to this page so we can make the best use of our time on the day.


Standing Items

  • welcome and hello to new people
  • finalise agenda, to include matters arising from minutes of our last meeting
  • correspondence received

Six month review

  • take stock of what we’ve achieved since that rainy launch in Hyde Park (a lot!)
  • recognising that there’s an immense field of possibilities for what to do next (perhaps a brainstorm on this to write them all down?)
  • from all that, set some priorities and goals for where we want to be six months from now (could some of the other agenda points be subsumed under this?)

Mayday 2010

What shall we do? Talk about possible plans to work with the Yorkshire Anarchist Group (federation?) and the 1in12 club to help organise the event.

Tech update

  • summary of technical developments – Including looking at the shiny new code for the proposed zines section, our new rss feeds and how to better seed video.

Review of recent coverage

Talk about what’s been good and what could have been better. How do we encourage more people to use the site to publish their news and events? How do we push the principle of open publishing over a group of IMCistas doing the grunting?

NewIMC process

Where next with this? What’s the situation so far.

Invitation to attend IMC UK Network meeting

Should we go? If so, should some, all or none of us go? What do we want to get out of it as an IMC? Do we feel part of a network in the UK? What would we like to see done better and how do we hope to achieve this? How can we best communicate with our neighbours? Is there life on Mars?

Solidarity with other IMC’s

Some feedback from the COP15 media centre and all the goings on leading up to it.

Cultural collaborations

Zines, listings, and how we interact with them. How will our editorial policies fit and do we need to redraft a special section to cover Zines?


A proposal to get a pilot show together to give to BCB and to broadcast on our server. How would we do this and why.

Time & Place of next meeting

Or even better next 2 meetings


Added and padded a few bits and bobs and made the agenda public so hopefully people will get to see it here and come along.


Sending my apologies.

I am away. I will try to move the new-IMC process on as much as I can before I leave.


I’ve put in the ‘6 month review’ item as I think we sometimes get carried away with talking about a huge number of possibilities without bottoming out any of them – I hope we can get our priorities clearer.
