Action List! ;)

These are specific goals to be presented on at the next steering committee meeting.

  • Contact PLoS One folks about seminar series. (Sri)
  • Make a template for new users, should be integrated into the getting started pages . (Mike)
  • Make a page better explaining "namespaces", and include it in the getting started pages. (Jenny, Kathleen)
  • Look into putting Eric's journal abbreviations on OWW. ((Eric Patridge, Austin Che)
  • Starting a group that will determine how to encourage “good” protocol submission / aggregation. Plenty of discussion needed here, but need to get the ball rolling. (Jenny)
  • Contact Jason if you want to be involved in the Board of Directors for OWW - will entail increased (legal) responsibility. (Everyone)
  • Help out on writing the NSF Grant (Everyone)


These are new discussion topics brought up during the meeting, that will be continued on the wiki. Each heading links to a discussion on the topic.


  • Jennyn 14:47, 15 June 2006 (EDT): We should consider doing a collection of T-shirts like H-Lounge (ringtone start-up from MIT). That way, we can do Sri's awesome idea of the "[My Favorite Protocol]" shirt, and maybe put "" on the back or something. I'd love to get involved in this, also, by the way.
