Internet Night 12/22/11


Hootsuite, etc. – allow multiple users to submit Tweets. (Contact Kane)
Use Buffer (or some other such app) to manage the flow of Tweets throughout the day.
Buffer Site:
Buffer Add-on for Firefox:
Create a Wiki site on RiseUp for Tweet suggestions/submissions for non-Hootsuite folk:
Tweet Submissions

Wikipedia has the leverage in terms of search engine results. OFM should work to increase its presence on Wikipedia.
Should OFM have its own Wikipedia page? Other Occupies have gone this route.
OFM should be added to this page:
Should more content be added to this page? (larger crowd size, etc?):
(also, for the last page ^^ we could submit a picture to the gallery…)

Meetup is used by Occupy Together ( ) to coordinate actions. It is the recommended tool there and is commonly used by people in an area to find “things to do.” OFM should have a presence on this site.

OFM should work to post to the Craiglist Community area. The following areas would likely benefit from an OFM presence:

QR Codes:
QR Codes, featuring OFM’s website(or some other such resource) or text messages (Occupy Everywhere!), should be created and “sticker-ized” – (not that we would do such things, but such stickers * could * be placed in public areas (bus stops, bathrooms, etc.), where people might be idle to encourage people to scan the codes to determine what they mean or where they lead.)

Discuss at GA – should this means of communication be used vs. Google Docs?
Create Screencast “How to” videos for RiseUp to help people navigate the site.
Should the site be embedded within OFM’s .org site?

Group was made “Public” again.
Should we create Facebook ads? Other social marketing campaigns?

Google Hangouts
Used during Internet night – worked well.
Should it be embedded on OFM’s site?
Should it be used for Work Group meetings? (vs. Skype, etc., for virtual meetings)
How else might it be used?


Internet Night, Pt. 2
For the next meeting, we should likely have a list of Occupy-related sites so that we can post to these sites.
The following Wiki is just a list of resources, already begun: see Occupy Sites & Resources
That said, we should likely create a separate Wiki specifically for discussion/posting for the next internet night.

Should create an OFM video intro / logo
Should create an OFM “lower-thirds” bar
Software? After Effects?
Color schemes, etc.? could be used to create quick, informative presentations (which can then be recorded using screen capture and then accompanied with audio).
Interviews should be scheduled to create videos featuring Occupy folk.
