First of all, we want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the first season of the WILDLABS Virtual Meetup Series. The remarkable levels of engagement and enthusiasm at each event demonstrated the need for these discussions, which is why we are happy to announce that a second season is on its way. This season, we'd like to explore different models for collaboration, the low-cost tools these approaches are producing, and what we can do with the data they’re generating. So, we’re floating around the topic headings:
- Open-source/low-cost hardware
- Tools and spaces for collaboration (both online and offline, e.g. APIs and makerspaces)
- Creative approaches to data-driven storytelling
What do you think? Do these topics resonate, or is there a different topic you’d like to see covered? Are there speakers or projects you’d like us to invite along so you can learn more about their work?
Please comment below or message us with your ideas for this round (@TaliaSpeaker or @StephODonnell) so that we can do our best to address your interests. Feedback on the first season and recommendations for improving the series overall are also welcome.
