B!B!E! Planning Meeting 2022.10.26

From Bike Collectives Wiki


Angel, Carla, Darin, Nat


Social media check-in

  • Francisco translations has given Nat some bandwidth
  • Nat made a really cool template for social media posts
  • Ivonne's workshop was yesterday, Carla's is coming up.
  • If workshop people want to be tagged on social media, Nat needs their @s.
  • animal suggestions for next round of drawings

Things to ask presenters

  • @s for social media if they want to be linked when we talk about their presentation, and how much of their name (nat is defaulting to what they have on
  • Nat is soliciting animal suggestions for the next round of drawings
  • are they ok with their workshop being recorded (and posted to )
  • remind them again to leave the last 15 minutes of their workshop for general chat (language for this in a previous email)


  • Dandy will facilitate and Valeria will be @ the "next bike bike" workshop
  • we heard back, workshop schedule is confirmed
  • nat saw a sticker that was an instagram account that was something like @bikepoc (darin has heard of them) and nat thought maybe they'd like to participate in B!B!E! - nat and darin will collaborate to reach out to them about the BIPOC workshop
  • Carla will send out the foro mundial email tomorrow

Tech update

  • Firefox released a new update, bumbleberry can't handle browser updates, godwin fixed it, darin will try to figure out what godwin just changed.
  • darin can speech-to-text spanish and english into english transcript (better than youtube)
