4. Discussion points

  • festival plans within the Erasmus+ project [E]

    • fetival idea is part of Erasmus+ project of 60kEUR
    • runs out november, most money spent in/by august
    • project co-ordinators paid a few hundred per month, money will not last so long
    • project co-ordinator per country, Daniel co-ordinates for luxembourg
    • festival planned to be in august
    • focused on: belgrium, luxembourg, germany
    • the festival is only 1/3 of the whole project
    • some more possiblities on how Karrot could collaborate with this
      • 1st obvious one is festival, will be in luxembourg in the countryside
        • want some time dedicated for people only in the foodsaving community,pre-festival perhaps
        • then “cola” (collaborate) festival, merging the two festivals
        • so having a foodharing village for the festival
        • curent thinking is 1st day closed, 2nd/3rd day open to general pulic
        • so workshops for general public later, foodsaving, sociocracy, etc
        • could be an opportunity for karrot people to meet, could have a stand, workshops, etc… workshops could be for movement or general public
        • very flexible state right now :slight_smile: ideas welcome
        • fairly offgrid festival, so less good for focused computer stuff
        • size of festival? 50 people from foodsaving, movement, and more for general festival, 300-400 at least (ther pepole said no problem for 2000,3000 people)
        • who is co-ordinator for germany? Jonas Heintz, ambassadar for saarbrucken, in leuven Bianca Drepper
        • festival would be over a weekend
        • childcare considerations? not planned yet
      • could also do stuff before the festival
        • would be cool to meet in belgium/luxembourg before… foodsavin leuven is also involved, could have a weekend to ourselves
        • daniel already met with leuven, and discussed problems they have with karrot
        • problems they both encounter with big groups
    • Q: how do you deal with language? english as a common language
    • Q: the bit before the meeting? could karrot make use of some of the funding for travel? (sleeping could be elsewhere?), have money for travelling, could imagine finding a thing for us coming, Daniel would think to provide room/food/etc, up for discussion
    • Q: is it open to other countries to participate? can have different target groups. most of the money needs to go to the 3 countries, but could pay for people not from those countries to give a workshop, festival itself will be totally open, just more financial support for people from those countries
    • bruno is surprised that Leuven is so big now! ~250 peeps
    • reactions!
      • Bruno: yayaaaaayayayyyy! very good idea! would be very happy to join, current situation is tough to leave for foreign lands having 2 small kids, not completely unlikely, seems a great opportunity! exited and supportive for everybody else, yeah, will see if maybe can make it, weekend makes it more likely, would be fun to be able to bring franz, maybe with informal childcare
      • Nick: sounds really exciting, enthusiastic, brewing the idea to go on a trip and visit groups myself, meeting in person is very important, trip with a purpose, would be good anker points, first bit as a ‘business meeting’ and also making connections with Leuven, Vas might be really interested too, festival sounds connecting, pluging into an wider community, appropriate for Karrot to have a presence
      • Nathalie: pretty amazing! a bit overwhelmed by the potential of this funding, and a new experience to have such a big pot of money, esp. in the context of the festival (also with some mixed feelings in there), really nice to think of karrot and the connection, so would be great to be at the festival and do something. for the other meeting, got excited before about going to göteborg, how many team meetings do we want to do though? is 2x to luxembourg too much? could connect at the festival? and see each other in another place in europe? 50 people from foodsaving movement is way too small, could be many more who are interested (particular from german side), people travelling from all over Germany for foodsharing.de festival in Berlin. people might be up for joining from further away depending on how it is explained. some talks about it how aligned with foodsharing festival
      • Daniel: happy to hear we find it cool, both ideas :slight_smile: how can we make it that both things work. more productive focus for pre-meeting and could work on something concrete, and festival more leisure. depends on how we are and how we want to set the focus. if trying to do stuff at the festival, they will be busy and/or not even present as lots will be going on. probably will meet cool people at festival.
      • Vasilis in Nicks head: enthusiastic to meet :slight_smile: how to deepen our relationships with groups
      • Bruno: rather focus on meeting Leuven, Luxembourg, more of a productive meeting, ideally doign both but maybe not having the time
    • is there a deadline for us to decide?
      • festival: hear back in February
      • other meeting: 2 weeks from now, so Daniel can put it into the budget, meeting can happen anytime
  • message input bug update [R]

  • knowledge sharing: how to enable feature flag features [E] [Nathalie]

    • at the moment it’s in the database
    • opening a python shell and manipulating the data
    • Nick loves sharing the knowledge
    • maybe not the most useful thing to know
    • given a limited time: focus on how to enable it for groups to do it themselves
    • 2 types
      • on/off (agreements)
      • more than on/off (roles) - configure name etc
        • that would need an interface in the settings
        • another tab where activity types are
    • start mocking up an user interface would be more useful
    • support groups on how to use these features
    • help people learning more tech stuff
    • reactions:
      • Nathalie: glad to finally talk about it! nice to know what it actually involves (a python shell on the server), nice to think about where we put our energy, motivation to learn about it shifted, nick and tilmann seem available enough to do it if needed, although would be more people to do. interface would make it obsolete.
      • Bruno: interesting to hear about the role feature, didn’t know how configurable it was with just a missing interface, and available for adding as many roles as the group likes, would be possible to configure more roles for the group (but the user interface for giving trust for other roles is not generic yet)
      • Daniel: also interesting to hear, but no pressure
  • call with recup [R]

    • link to minutes
    • maybe another Karrot group soon!
    • we got two emails from groups in Italy right after each other, each had a diferent vibe
    • other group more grassroots/activist/phd mission-aligned stuff
    • recup doing a lot of foodsaving, in rome and milan, with ~80 volunteers (not sure if across both cities or not), do pickups and want to expand, they have different channels on a messanger, and sign into pickups via a google form.
    • had a call with someone from recup and someone from frankfurt, pushing for recup to use a more specific software tool, felt like nice advertising for karrot :slight_smile:
    • a sense maye governance features, e.g. application, membership review, a bit overwhelming, currently in a process to figure out their goverance
    • hard to find the balance of telling them about governance features vs telling them about the core activity-related features
    • vasilis was encouraging them to just open a group
      • they have a rome group! → Karrot
    • fun to do these kind of calls, esp. when there are groups already
    • get quite a few emails from individuals on the forum, but that can be a long path to getting started, so nice when there is a group already there
    • reactions/questions/comments:
      • Daniel: is it the first foodsaving/foodsharing group in italy? (there are groups… but the unique thing in recup is being in 2 cities, so mostly very local activities. there are some inactive groups in italy.).
      • Bruno: wondering if italy has more informal stuff, e.g. in Spain experienced more informal relationships with stores, and a lot of individual foodsaving, like dumpster diving, informal relationships where someone knows someone working in the shop. level of organisation might be related to the culture. interesting to hear about recup. would be nice to do a followup, applying to group, seeing what goes forward. there is a followup call scheduled on march 21st.
      • Nick: so many things going on under the radar, different cultures and different countries, in UK big NGOs see to be popular, motivating to hear that smaller groups exist, how to introduce the governance stuff? experienced this myself, 18 people on group now, didn’t mention governance tools to them, is there an overall governance principle for Karrot, we could point people to those resources

UP next

  • where do we store our agreements (forum, Karrot team, both) and how do we keep them updated (if more than one place) [E/D] [Nathalie]
    • intro: the money agreement we had on the forum, the app/PWA agreement we have as an agreement in the group. Nathalie added the money agreement to the group agreements too. Do we maintain both places for agreements? To which one do we (as a team) refer primarily?

5. Actions/Outcomes

  • engage with feedback workflow on forum [Bruno et al]

4. Discussion points

  • getting a beer from the fridge [ANYONE]
  • where do we store our agreements (forum, Karrot team, both) and how do we keep them updated (if more than one place) [E/D] [Nathalie]
    • intro: the money agreement we had on the forum, the app/PWA agreement we have as an agreement in the group. Nathalie added the money agreement to the group agreements too. Do we maintain both places for agreements? To which one do we (as a team) refer primarily?
    • Nathalie: if it would be possible to bridge in between both. On the forum its still good. Agreements on the group the main place, forum the extra communication. Automatic updated thing?
    • Nick: expand the topic out a bit: karrot group that relates in the forum. each tools offer something, missmash of tools to use. Buidling Karrot and use karrot, so makes me think what in the forum is really useful. The fact that is public is the main thing. transparency culture (unity stuff). missing if those info are not publicly available. Why karrot is so closed? (the group). Karrot team and feedback? Click around with no account? quite fitting and more transparent? If that was the case would it be sufficient? A public view only. Whole thing, sections? Not all or nothing, or some stuff? public activities? publish agreements by default? Bigger topic? How to support more transparency? Presnet reality, I like the feauture its a nice thing to have as the official agreement inside the Karrot team, forum gives the transparency. Not spend the time to do an automated thing, if it was easy the benefit would be there.
    • Vasilis: thinking a bit about the karrot team group being private, the application proess is quite nice as a welcoming step
  • sven asked: hi Im just here for some questions meanwhle after my recent first visit at that meeting (while those questions refer about new user signups but aren’t mentioned in faq, policy nor that third similar section?)
  • festival/ Karrot meeting(s)
    • two seperate things
    • update/summary: Daniel joined, presented thoughts: 1. more focused meeting, productive, focused on what we do; big groups e.g. Leuven. Needs to know in the next week: in person meeting in Belgium. 2. A festival which would be broader; funding is german speaking countries. August, somewhere. Will go ahead. 1st one productive stuff and focus, festival we attend, good for social stuff but less focus on Karrot maybe. People that where there.
    • Nick: interested to attend both, Bruno quite constrained by childcare; support either with childcare.
    • Nathalie: Funding comes from Erasmus+ comes through foodsharingAkademie, cooperation with Lux. How I got it is that we can use this funding meeting belgium, luxemburg, ? thing. Coordinators, 3 country coordinators. I would join both.
    • Vasilis: I would join both. festival idea seems far away, meetup would need some more co-ordination from our side, we could prepare a workshop. put idea on table: as belgirum and luxembourg are close, could go to some pickups with people, see how they run things and do distributions. don’t want to just go into a room and just talk about karrot, how we get maximum out of it. if it’s possible to combine both countries. did daniel mention duration?
    • Nick: maybe idea to do interview, or video…
  • Call with open systems lab
  • update from Codeforsociety?
    • applied, waiting to hear if accepted, no updates

5. Actions/Outcomes

  • decision to make the karrot group the official place for agreements, and we copy them to the forum
  • transfer the PWA agreement to the forum [Nathalie]
  • Nathalie got promoted from moderator to admin on the forum [Yay!]
  • find a place where we can have disc to organise it? Karrot? a thread could be enough [Nick]
    • clarify what the offer is? how is going to interact with the structure?
  • nick will share the meeting time with social systems lab if anybody wants to join [Nick]

4. Discussion points

Today:

  • question about emails in the forum [Nathalie]
    • if someone writes an email and it comes to our email section in the forum and then also registers
    • do they see the whole email conversation thread?
    • will my reply be also send by email?
    • someone liked a reply I’ve written and I got confused about visibility
    • but it’s sweet if they do see the whole thread themselves
    • note: I could also do a bit of testing myself…
    • Nick: don’t know exactly, forum works that everything is a forum thread. for emails coming in: creates staged user, only has email address, what I guess happened: staged account converts into real one. private message thread is now like a ‘normal’ message thread, default is likely that an email is sent each time
    • forum is discourse (software) not discord
  • open new topic “Weekly call about Karrot development 2023” and move calls from January
    • Nathalie could do in next co-working - yes please
  • report on social systems lab [Nick]
    • call with Tim in Cape town
    • they are building a tool called “circles”
      • big picture: people who want to make a better world make profiles
      • possible way to find group to fund
    • very positive about Karrot - we have actual users!
    • everyone continues doing their thing :slight_smile:
    • maybe funding opportunity for Karrot?
    • Hylo also a similar software
    • Reactions:
      • the topic of how to get funding is interesting
      • a bit of talk about buying abandoned buildings to make cool things
      • stay connected and have a sense of what’s going on is nice
      • really confusing this world of funding
      • maybe interesting to look into Hylo
      • a bit of talk about crypto investment
      • approach reminds me of effective altruism
  • group asks us to remove users from group [Nick]
    • talk general now
    • Nick got an email, maybe it will be sent to info@karrot.world
    • we might want to have a policy
      • do we intervene with group membership/ how much
      • we refused in the past
    • implement a feature would be ideal
      • emergency removal?
      • input for feature discussion
      • membership review not appropriate for all cases?
    • Q:
      • How time critical? wasn’t mentioned, they will likely send an email to the karrot mail
    • conversation:
      • tricky
      • wary about being overwhelmed with the situation/ of long emails
      • is getting information already getting involved?
      • first reaction: NO, would need to think about it more
      • again: policy would be good!
        1)
        - no we won’t do it
        - we can understand need and try to incorporate it into feature
        2)
        - no we won’t do it in general
        - we can understand need and try to incorporate it into feature
        - we have an emergency procedure for removal of group members
      • what is not working with the membership review?
      • we don’t want to be part of the group’s governance, also that’s not how Karrot is build
      • what about technical request?
        • if they figured it all out and it’s only about the technical removal only
        • they’re internal governance differes from what the software offers
      • relation to foodsharing is interesting, what can we learn?
      • what about if this happens to ‘Karrot Team and Feedback’? there is no other group we could ask

Next:

  • money review February 2023
    • Nick: 100€
    • Nathalie: 400€
    • Bruno: 200€
    • Vas: 230€

3. Review last week’s Actions/Outcomes

4. Discussion points

  • meeting format - open questions in beginning and then carry on to other topics in smaller round?

    • giggles nature of the call. Intro session in the beginning. Unsure when I know that someone needs more time to come to the same level. Feeling of uneasyness.
      • vas: get the point, don’t have a suggestion right now, when joined the group felt a bit excluded through lack of information, over time could participate in more topics, was interesting, found my way without having someone mentoring
      • nick: acceptance to the flow, how does a more intentional approach would look? Karrot energy low at the moment due to paid work, proper onboarding would be nice, we don’t have that, being realistic at the moment what I can do
      • sven: this call is public, can I share a link to the forum?
      • nathalie: thinking about what the “karrot team” is, and wanting a bit more formalised idea of what this is, would appreciate a clearer intention, not so comfortable with the openness/fluidity
      • vas: 2 points, direct towards sven: 4th meeting having joined, would be interested in feedback, how included, excluded, what could help out, to gradually to feel more mutually comfortable, 2nd point, about sharing link to other people who want to join, at the moment couldn’t imagine how to combine a meeting with specific organising, and new people that haven’t used karrot, don’t see it working, or good use of time, can’t introduce karrot to everyone and work on our tasks
      • nick: it all makes sense, right now quite fluid and open because I can’t do a lot Karrot, like having open space available, monthly community call would be that open space, would be nice to have those regular, would need resources to organise, right now we are minimally operating, in favor of clear intentions, reform intention of this call, helps clarify for people outside, no capacity to work at this topic at the moment
      • sven: planning to create a profile, let newcomers know that there is Karrot, notice errors and bugs, report tiny things, interested in meeting for newcomers
      • I do like the idea of the community calls, to seperate the spaces, newcomer call would improve the situation m

Appendix

What the letters mean

[R] Report (clarifying the information) - one person telling something to everyone, so everyone gets clarity on the subject, can ask questions, but not really discussion, etc…
[E] Exploration (hearing reactions & ideas) - share our opinions, reactions, hear what everyone things, what’s on our mind
[D] Decision (making a decision) - final step to bring it together to a decision

List of ideas

  • making a tutorial(s), writing a manual/ handbook
  • future roadmap, plan
    • general direction for Karrot in the future? the conceptual part? more solid conceptual framework
  • in-person meeting \o/
  • ‘Legalizing’ Karrot? Building a legal structure we can use?
    • bank account/ legal structure, open collective
  • governance structure of Karrot/ Karrot ‘team’
  • Server structure, connection with foodsharing.de and Kanthaus
  • sociocracy and Karrot
  • how sociocracy could support groups
  • idea of commons
    • if there are shared resources in a group = commons (e.g. a cargo bike) can this be supported by karrot. e.g. a feature for shared items? \
  • finding partnerships to do some on the ground testing. related to a funding or part maybe. (the idea that Nick explained recently), a network, a movement, outreach a more specific one
    • outreach: establish network and partnerships, maybe connecting with local movements
  • re-contextualise Karrot towards a more-generalised tool
  • a mind map of these ideas, to visualize and revisit them → have a focused session on this
  • Privacy Policy
  • agreement feature and group governance [Nathalie]
