I'd made some good progress on this project, yet felt it would take a while to complete working by myself. I mentioned this to Mark and as if by magic a couple volunteers appeared to help me. Thank you, Mark. We had a brief meeting then immediately setup a Trello board to facilitate coordination and track the project's progress. Some new ideas came up in the discussion. I'm grateful that this community Switchboard exists. It does work!
The Eugene Switchboard is a great. In this case, the main benefit of this post is that I focused my thoughts more and made some progress on how to frame things. I think writing helps for that. It's also sparked a couple conversations that resulted in some useful feedback. As a result of the sort of thinking I did here, I was able to improve my profile on a job board resulting in an interview with a company I would consider a good place to work.
From Matt Sayre "..., local tech companies came out big time to support STEM in Eugene schools. This article sums up the outcome. Thank you for your support in getting the word out. http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/33461428-75/community-rallied-to-raise-money-needed-for-school-space-science-project.html.csp "
This worked out great! Ryan offered to help and Jase jumped in and started doing stuff. We used the Slack channel to share assets and ideas. An hour or two later we were done, cards ordered and we should have them in a week. Jade's work was great and we used original logo assets from Courtney. Go team!
Had more than a few people interested - timing was an issue for some. As a result today I posted an ASK to hone in on the best time for meetings. Meetings every other week is the plan and the goal is to focus on developing ideas to help businesses reach customers inside and outside the Eugene / Lane County area. Several conference rooms are available. We may move the meetings around to accommodate both the Eugene / Springfield businesses. Perhaps include occasional meetings in Corvallis and Cottage Grove too.
