Or "New note from template" is simpler?
Build some "book mode" template
Sounds great 👍

📣 💡 *Potential opportunity:* folks are organizing for helping to get people from African continent out of Ukraine, as there are real challenges with systemic racism in the refugee processes, and it's leading to diplomatic tensions. Part of this work is peacebuilding in digital spaces that are high in tension and trauma of war, involving volunteers monitoring tons of telegram/WhatsApp/signal groups for flare-ups, and helping to diffuse tensions.

I'm speaking with someone who thinks that a read-only chat bridge (pulling all these message string into one slack team of volunteers), would allow them to be much more effective and less spread across devices. My contact: https://twitter.com/marjorie_brans?t=7cNmTezGSwxIFeeZH4SsOg&s=09
If anyone is interested in this work, pls speak up and I'll loop you into the next conversation with Marjorie!
I can prob invite you to their slack space as well

Dear community, I need your suggestions/help. A friend of mine who runs an NGO in Germany is in ukraine right now to help refugees at the camp. He is in access to volunteers who wants to help, he has access to Camp managers and can ask them what do their camp need and get data about it. I am asking myself and to all of if Technology can help here ? Eg: I imagine the need 'to structure data of volunteers and refugees' For this i imagine a website where we have 2 forms, one for refugees and other for volunteers. we can people to signup and mention what do they need or has to offer. I imagine connecting this data to a Trello or spreadsheet to have a visualisation and then somehow find a way to semi automate the process of connecting the Right 'giver' with 'receiver'. Perhaps i can use labels like 'accomodation', 'food', 'supplies', 'clothing', 'money', 'transport' so that i can connect these 2 type of users in the database somehow. My tech knowledge is as good as of a designer so I'm sure there is a better way to model the solution technically. And that's where I need u guys to criticize me here and also share any solution u know which i can use immediately to get a website up and running with it. I imagine using airtable, Google form/sheet and/or a chatbot connected with some visual database In short my question is: Do u have a suggestion of any online system which can facilitate this sitaution fast, I can imagine something simple like google forms or airtable, or a chatbot which will help in validating the user and putting its data in a different coloumns in a database (spreadsheet or trello board?), so he can see the data and with his team help the refugees, also i am asking myself what is the best way to do this, because at the end of we get like 1000 refugee signups and 1500 volunteer support then what is the best way to connect them? doing manually means loss of time, so there should be some way to automate it at some level.

Can anyone <!here> point me in the direction of the g0v communication policy (incl mailing list) that came out of challenges with emails going directly to individuals?
(there's more context than that one tweet -- I've picked up on it while listening to the now-fragmented Spaces)
cc: @chihao @clkao
I don’t understand what’s going on here
These Twitter Spaces are doing humanitarian work in tracking live intelligence, but have had a split. It's mostly based on miscommunication and hurt feelings of some people taking too much credit. I believe these Twitter Spaces are more valuable when they work together, or at the very least have an shared understanding of "turf" and understand the value of the other group.

I'm asking for a link to the g0v communication policy (re: the Google group) to share with a contact involved. I'd like to offer an example of how a group (g0v) created something to navigate communication friction.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
I see! Thanks @patcon. I don’t know any doc on the top of my head… maybe @ipa @pm5 would think of something?

Would anyone here be interested to join that space? They have desperate need to some digital infrastructure to keep them from burning out. And the Twitter space is a neat sort of rejuvenator, as ppl from the discord can step up onto the panel and share little updates on what's happening, and invite new waves of ppl/skills into the discord.

It's pretty magic. The dynamic is very interesting with Twitter Spaces tied to a community "backend". The folks on the tiwtter space are a rotating cast of "open source intelligence" military ppl, and folks with expertise needed in the moment (when the nuclear reactor was being shelled, they immediately invited nuclear engineers up onto the panel to counter the fearful narratives about Chernobyl, etc)

Like I really feel that folks in Taiwan might benefit from seeing how this works, as it feels very emergent and full of possibility, like how i imagine it felt participating in the HK protests, but more highly integrated internationally in an almost 24/7 audio news feed in panel format
