- General Meeting Notes (Dec 5)
Korea Indymedia General Meeting 12-5-2009
Jeff, Giraffe and Andrew came to the meeting.
Content production & translation
Giraffe: I sent a Drupal book to the listserv and everyone should study it and learn how to make our own Korea Indymedia website theme to make the website look better. We can also search the internet for tutorials about how to make our own themes.
Andrew and Jeff: Let’s post on some forums, social networking sites and try to find new members that already have tech skills and can help out with the website. Maybe we can make poster too?
-Content production & translation
Giraffe: I’m hoping we can get together in groups to cover actions. We can go to demonstrations and other actions and interview people, take photos, take notes and then write good news stories about things happening. News content usually is better when groups of people produce it collectively.
Andrew: contacting english teachers and teacher’s clubs and letting them know about indymedia can be helpful.
Jeff: We need to do re-outreach to our original core members that created korea indymedia together but are no longer involved. We should try to get more general people to use indymedia but it’s not really happening naturally. We might need to do some PR work. For some reason, our comrades in the rhea candle light media center and other struggle spots, organizations, etc. aren’t using korea indymedia. For some reason, many people don’t seem to think that korea indymedia is something we need. We could try to make korea indymedia more relevant to activists who are already doing media work in places like the candle light media center, let people know how to use it and find out why they’re not already using it much.
Giraffe: Tabling might be helpful, but time-consuming and maybe inefficient. Workshops could also be helpful – organizing workshops on Indymedia, introducing Korea Indymedia, sharing skills and information about media content production. Contacting JinboNet activists and making a better relationship with them could also help a lot.
Andrew: Perhaps putting our content on other websites with links to the korea indymedia website could be helpful in getting more attention.
