A friend pointed out to me that iTV made him think of iPods which is too bad
because I like the "i" symbol often used by Indymedia groups. But, I would
like to change my vote for a name for the show to Indy TV.

>Hello my friends,
>We are making progress, but I feel stuck.
>I promised to help coordinate volunteers for the show. In order to do
>its important to start building lists. The first list is people and I'm
>stuck in the mud of making that list. Thank you so much Gary for the
>I had no idea and still plead ignorant to the communication structure
>our video lists and our Indymedia as a whole. This communication
>is key. This email was sent out to the video list and to a few others who
>may or may not be on it. Please forgive the double email. This is
>challenge to figure out.
>Once I have a list of people who are working on the program or who want to
>help out, then I can help coordinate who will show up on what night. It
>help us sort out our general list as well. For those who are currently
>volunteering, I have very few of your personal phone numbers. With name,
>number, and email, we can compile a contact list. For coordination and for
>willing, we can share that contact information among us. In my opinion,
>this list of personal phone numbers should not be posted publicly unless
>someone gives permission. But I need phone numbers, folks, if you want me
>this in an efficient manner. I'd like to start plugging in the next
>for all of us, new volunteers, and post that calendar on our video list.
>that sound all right?
>Another list we need to complete is tasks. A list of roles for producing
>the program. A list of things to do for making the program better (see
>notes) and even a list of purposes that different folks have. This could
>include maximizing the podcast and audio potential of our programs.
>For me to help with coordinating volunteers, I need a list of roles we
>on and a list of the training necessary for volunteering. This is what I
>have from discussions and meeting notes:
>Show Producers: All
>Video Editing: Marjy, Sharpie, Tim
>Guest Scheduler: Michael
>Headline Writers: Svea, Mike, and Sofia
>Record, archive, and distribution Sharpie, Others?
>Live Call-in phone screeners: Michael, Marjy, Others?
> Trainers: Sharpie,
>Volunteer Coordinator Andrew
>The trainings for volunteers seem to start with the following in priority:
> 1) Live Call-in Phone Screeners
> 2) Technical Assistance and
> 3) Hot Set operations
> >From what I'm hearing, number #1 should be the first priority? Who will
>train them and how do I guide new volunteers to begin? We have a one page
>set training piece written out, perhaps we can build on that?
>As for guest scheduling, a draft outline of general subjects for
>consideration was sent to Michael and the rest of you. Thank you Michael,
>great. Thanks to you and Sophia for taking notes of meetings and sending
>Regarding the last meeting at SCAT. I'm sorry about my facilitation. It
>could of been a lot better. I wasn't in the mindset, didn't feel
>the agenda wasn't structured. Without a planned agenda, I wouldn't feel
>comfortable facilitating again.
>Going out of town tommorrow and won't be back until next Tuesday. Wish
>more of you would speak up, at least about the name for the show.
>Sorry I missed the ones below. I like both "Indy News" and "Independent
>News" for names as well and I'm confused with the "iTV" thing. My concern
>about how the name would sound when we're talking about it on the air. Is
>catchy, make sense to most people, and what kind of message does it send?
>"Good evening and welcome to ......................"
>iTV: Media in your Community
>That's it and hope you all are well.
