Your Digital Environment
This section introduces you to the tools that enable team assembly, global communication, coordination with prompt hosts and nodes, and managing official contributions throughout the Collabathon.
This Collabathon GitBook acts as the Participant's Manual for the event. We also use it to register our contributions, notes from Discussions and results from our Hacks. To contribute to this GitBook you can use this link to register as a writer. If you don't have a GitBook account yet, please create one.
We strongly encourage participants to harvest our online discussions. During every discussion there is an individual with the role of harvester. You can ask the harvester to provide you the link to the shared document to help taking notes. The link to these documents will be provided here, on GitBook.
CoMakery is not currently being used for onboarding all collabathon participants or for forming all collabathon teams - as it was in earlier collabathons. We are working with CoMakery to develop functionalities for team assembly, funding integration, economic project incentives and project management processes for a more robust collabathon digital environment in the future.
Although not required for the collabathon, we have used CoMakery to assemble teams around prompts, help in the project/prompt management, and track contributions to projects. In the fall of 2019 the whole Collabathon was represented as a 'Mission' on CoMakery where each prompt became a project related to the Open Climate Collabathon Mission. Within in each prompt project the milestones were represented as a 'Batch of Tasks'. On CoMakery 'Tasks' represent specific contribution opportunities.
