Scuttlebutt Strategy 2022
There are many of us growing on Scuttlebutt. We sometimes talk, and sometimes are on our own adventures.
This is an invitation to share your current thinking and plans.
At the end of this, I hope that we have clarity about what we're each planning (and why), and maybe we have some more friends.
This can also help inform future decisions about what we're funding.
If you care and would like to participate you are welcome.
I imagine those who are already contributing through e.g. community gardening (welcoming, guiding, care work), documentation, discourse, code, money, might find this the most enriching.
We are a plurality of perspectives, so there is no aim to resolve "one true strategy".
Rather I would like to lead us through a simple process for surfacing our work / thinking, and then connecting with others.
Week 1 - sharing + listening
Each butt starts a thread sharing their personal roadmap/ strategy/ thinking.
- The format is up to you. - Keep in mind you're trying to make it accessible to others, so you might want to give some back-story about your motivation, goals, assumptions (not just the finished product of your thinking) - If you're daunted, just start a thread and start sharing, other participants can help draw more out through questions. - **Help people find it** - post a link to it in this thread, use the #strategy2022 tag
Listen to the other-butts
- Read each others threads, ask, clarify questions. - Try to focus on understanding the person's perspective (not to argue it's relevance) - _It's tempting to debate your personal perspectives but I'd encourage you to_ hold _a little, and read each others stories before getting to that_
Week 2 - synthesis
Let's look for commonalities, compare/ contrast, challenge one another more.
Let's figure out what this looks like together. It could be:
- you host a call for people interested in theme X you've seen
- starting a thread
