Notes from Lauren
Things to work on/think about (in no particular order):
1. Task template: should it have status and team members too, or should that info be kept out of the task template and maybe just go on the task page?
2. Sample task page: what should go on it? And then,
2a. We should make our "organizing organizing" follow those specifications.
3. Task template again-- the "time" units seem pretty good, but what about the "skills"? Should we try to brainstorm a larger list?
3a. Lauren's discussion about that w/ Xavi: User_talk:Lauren#some_templates
4. How do we make the instructions for adding a task as c lear and easy as possible (to a wiki novice).
Thoughts/Agenda for Working Meeting (6/5)
- Solidify task categories/template
- Solidify format for task page w/ things like status, contributors (maybe w/ another template like Template:Status box)
- Make pages current for tasks
- OLPC Cambridge summer blog
- WikiEducator "Projects" page: http://wikieducator.org/Initiatives
- Wikigogy organization scheme: http://wikigogy.org/Main_page
We began to break up 'participate' tasks by time...
See Talk:Participate on the wiki for details.
("Think about tasks that can be done in under a minute. Imagine people doing tasks hundreds of times in a week, getting many of them wrong, revising and reviewing these tasks that others have done...")
Josh and Mel and I were brainstorming about this just tonight. Reviewing content and creating groups dedicated to a specific type of review, a la content stamping, is one example. If you think of others, please describe them in as much detail as you like here. Sj talk 20:31, 27 August 2007 (EDT)

We're getting lots of interest from people who present themselves as salespersons, marketers, and executives. Where can we direct them? --Holt 18:56, 12 February 2008 (EST)
Link to Summer of Content...
This links off to the summer of content page, which is still for 2007. There is no way for someone to follow the advice to "sign up".
Braindump for rework
A better layout and color scheme is here: see also the older version of the page I don't know which chunk size is better. I preferred the old tone and levity, and link set, though the linked-to pages in many cases weren't fleshed out. Let's work towards a happy middle ground.
