OpenWetWare:Steering committee/Long term planning discussion
This discussion is in the very early stages, so please contribute opinions, and don't take anything here as set in stone by any means.
Notes from 5/4/2006 Funding meeting
In light of deciding whether to pursue more funding sources for OWW, we had a discussion regarding the various approaches for ensuring the long-term viability of OWW. In particulr, when the current steering committee "moves on", how do we keep the site leadership fresh and active?
Jasonk 23:29, 4 May 2006 (EDT):I'll try and summarize the general opinions/suggestions from the meeting.
Effective site leadership in the future was envisioned of consisting of three components:
- Steering Committee
- Lead Evangelist/"CEO"
The responsibilities of each component would be approximately:
Primary responsibility: Ensure an active, vibrant user community. Some (but certainly not all) mechanisms for achieving this would be to spearhead new projects that:
- lower barriers to contributing information
- grow the member base
- make existing information more accesible
