Brainstorm eh

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I think we're all pretty stoked to get this party started, so I figured a brainstorming thread wouldn't be a bad way to go!

Soooo ideas:

1 - Cloud hosting for Ottawa Guild related resources. I'm sure we could get this cheaply, and I will register to whatever service people think is best. Does anyone know of a good bulk storage solution? Dropbox is a pretty rad. Ideally we can use a service that is easy to access for a large number of people so we can all upload/download all the content our guild will generate. I think this should actually be a priority as it will help us stay organized from the get-go.

2 - As per our first meeting, if we can focus on making our presence known at existing events rather than planning events we can make our efforts more focused and effective. List of events!

  • Comicon
  • Ottawa International Game Conference (a game developers conference here in Ottawa...getting bigger each year)
  • What else?

3 - Guild task forces. How do people feel about creating several sub groups within the guild to specialize in certain aspects of the guild (finding events, creating resources like posters or videos, streaming specialists...)?

What else? Let's get as many ideas down as possible!

I think these are all good ideas. Anyone want to meet up as group to discuss?

Yes, we'll need to meet soon. Let's figure out some venues and we can choose one.

There's The Loft and Monoplatte, both are central. The Loft is super close to Rideau so there's parking and easy access to a large number of bus routes. I'll contact them and see what kinds of groups they can handle.

The guild committee should be announced soon as well which will help centralize meeting organization.

This may interest you guys http://www.coticon.com/promo-nfp.html for a free booth at CoTiCon

Nice! That's a good date as well. Close enough to the main Extra-Life event that fundraising should be moving into full steam ahead mode.

Have you already contacted them? We should make sure one person takes care of it so we don't cross streams (everyone knows you should never cross streams). If you haven't we could wait until the committee is formed to keep track of who will take care of getting a booth spot reserved.

I'm good for either of those or anywhere else that is suggested. The best day for me would be Sunday as the next few days will be busy due to personal commitments.

I know Video Games Live, is coming up in March. I have already planned on going but I can see what I can do about talking and mingling with people to see if everyone would be interested in hopping on board with the Guild.

I will also be at Video Games Live. I will wear my shirt from last year and probably bring my medal also. We can also look into Geek Market. I haven't been to this yet but it is coming up next month as well.

Monoplatte is also close to Rideau. The 2 from Rideau goes directly to there, while most buses that go on Slater/Albert streets pass by Bay, which takes about a 10 minute walk to get there.
