I would dispute that having a central location where our biz is situated is
not working out it . I come here to check the office e-mail and to take
adavantage of the resources it offers (internet, printer, regional calling)
to do the work I do for the IMC, also I am, as far as I know the only one
fielding messages left on our voice mail. So yeah, having this resource
here has become pretty important to my participation in indymedia. Beyond
that, we have an awesome resource here IF WE ACTUAL START DOING OUTREACH, we
have access to 6 computer terminals here, 5 with internet access. If we do
start getting more volunteers, having a central location where they can come
in and do work would be great, also there is everything you need here to
work on a story if you do not personally have a computer and whatnot.
This office could potentially be the most important resource that we have
and, a public place where folks can tap in to what we are doing and where we
have resources on hand so folks can participate. Sophia's proposal is
having the ironic effect of making me realize this and I will come to the
next meeting with a proposal for a plan to maximize the office's use.
Advertising its availability and actively recruiting vollunteers, coming up
with tasks that folks could help out with, beefing up the other press
section + running of the dispatch for example.
We can definately revisit this at the meeting but there is no harm in
getting the conversation off the ground beforehand.
Also we definately do need a phone. We are considered a press outfit by
some folks and get called pretty often.
