Submitted by chinmayi s k (@chinmayi) (proposing) on Tuesday, 11 February 2020
This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.
Format of the session: Birds of Feather (BOF) session (1 hour) Status: Confirmed & Scheduled
In the past month India witnessed a lot of frequent shutdowns in various parts of the country to “maintain law and order” situation. During these shutdowns the social media channels and solidarity groups shared various tools for communication and documentation. The conversations around these tools happened in the digital sphere and were shortlived. There is need for documentation that is specific to the indian eco-system.
What worked and where ?
What did not work ?
What do we need in such tools ?
Outcome: A blog post / document sharing these learnings.
Laptops or some other note taking tools would be helpful.
If you have used certain tools and there were things that did not work, bringing screenshots would be helpful.
