''These are specific goals to be presented on at the next steering committee meeting.''   
 +
 +
*Contact [http://plosone.org PLoS One] folks about seminar series. ([[Sri Kosuri|Sri]])
 +
*Make a template for new users, should be integrated into the [[OpenWetWare:Getting started|getting started pages]] . ([[User:Yeem|Mike]])
 +
*Make a page better explaining "namespaces", and include it in the [[OpenWetWare:Getting started|getting started pages]]. ([[Jenny Nguyen|Jenny]], [[Kathleen McGinness|Kathleen]])
 +
**[[Help:Page naming conventions|Guidelines for choosing a proper name for your page]]

**[[Help:Reverting edits|Instruction for undoing an edit to a particular page]]
 +
*Look into putting [[Eric Patridge|Eric's]] journal abbreviations on OWW. (([[Eric Patridge]], [[Austin Che]])
 +
*Starting a group that will determine how to encourage “good” protocol submission / aggregation.  Plenty of discussion needed here, but need to get the ball rolling.  ([[Jenny Nguyen|Jenny]])
 +
*Contact [[Jason Kelly|Jason]] if you want to be involved in the Board of Directors for OWW should we go for 501(c)3 stauts - will entail increased (legal) responsibility. (Everyone)
 +
**Report on whether 501(c)3 status is a good idea considering legal protection afforded by MIT, etc, ([[Sriram Kosuri]])
 +
*Help out on writing the [[OpenWetWare:Steering committee/NSF BDI Grant|NSF Grant]] (Everyone)
 +
*T-shirt ([[Jenny Nguyen|Jenny]], [[Jason Kelly|Jason]])

==Discussions==
 +
''These are new discussion topics brought up during the meeting, that will be continued on the wiki.  Each heading links to a discussion on the topic.''
 +
 
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Community development/Removing Inactive Sites]]'''
 +
**Plan to move inactive sites from the main page
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Community development/Advertising]]'''
 +
**Google Adwords was suggested by [[Jason Kelly|Jason]], with the concern that we might not have the infrastructure to deal with a significant uptick in new users.
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Community development/New user experience]]'''
 +
**What should the new user experience look like?  Should we have a “welcoming committee”?
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Software/Site analytics]]'''
 +
**This would provide more information for making decisions about site organization.  Could be a feature we provide to labs, as well as something we use ourselves to help for re-organizing pages (e.g., the main page).  It also may raise privacy concerns, or be an unnecessary technical addition to the site back-end.  Discussion needed to resolve this.
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Information management/Article naming conventions]]'''
 +
**The current plan is to include a section better explaining namesapces in the OWW getting started pages (currently it is in the Etiquette section)
 +
**[[Tom Knight|Tom]] also suggested that the issue could be technically solved by making page moving easier (specifically, getting links on OWW to be remapped to the new page)
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Information management/Standard protocol submission]]'''
 +
**Discussion templates and ways to standardize protocol submissions for easy access and readability.
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Software/iHOP]] and [[OpenWetWare:Software/BRENDA]]'''
 +
**How to integrate with OWW?  ([[Eric Patridge|Eric]], maybe you can kick off these discussions.)
 +
*'''[[OpenWetWare:Design/T-shirt]]'''
 +
**T-shirt designs/slogans.
