> Something I forgot about, we ran a meetup for polis earlier in the year, if you want to use the mailing list for that to advertise your next g0v meetup you're welcome (I guess the two audiences will be fairly happy to merge)

Dropping a "meta" link related to co-organizing:
I've put together a Speaker Booking Guide forked from what Civic Tech Toronto hacknight co-organizers learned from several years of booking weekly speakers: https://link.g0v.london/speaker-booking-guide

Google Docs

g0v.london: Speaker Booking Guide

Speaker Booking Guide g0v.london :red_circle: You are HERE: <https://link.g0v.london/speaker-booking-guide> The purpose of this resource is to… hi there! :wave::skin-tone-6::wave::skin-tone-3::wave::skin-tone-5: if you’re reading this, you’re welcome to contribute :tada: we appreciate comments, incl liberal +1's to follow the doc (all comments), subs...

@ruth.wetters has offered to do the first booking to help dog-food the guide, and we'll adapt from there
In Toronto, it's common that the person doing the speaker booking role to kinda "hold ownership" of the guide, and is encouraged to make changes as they're passing off to the next person, based on what they've learned/liked/disliked
I'm hoping someone else will take the role after ruth, and will feel welcome to try it and make any changes they see fit after this MVP guide gets a chance to be tried out 🙏🏻
(in toronto, speaker booking is one of the longer roles, held for 3 months of weekly bookings, but I believe @ruth.wetters is just offering to help with this one pilot as a way to start small)
I'd be stoked if you were open to booking a few more Ruth, but no pressure! ❤️
Just ran through the doc with @ruth.wetters, and she's running with it to trial our email cold-call process! Lemme know if you have any questions, @ruth.wetters 🙏🏻

@ruth.wetters So helpful that I am revisiting this doc! (Gosh, glad to learn some survive skills for this winter)

@harrisspinos00 I found another sticker printing website! 33 pounds for 250 stickers. What do you think? https://www.stickershop.co.uk/products/round-waterproof-vinyl

stickershop.co.uk

About our waterproof stickers Our round waterproof printed stickers are designed to be used both indoors and outdoor.

Outdoor waterproof stickers can be used for a huge range of applications - from labelling machinery to branding cosmetic pots! Our sticker printing experts have you covered and are available to help any step of the way. Enter your diameter and sticker quantity

Ok this is great better than Vistaprint, we should use it
@harrisspinos00 Let's order some this week? 250 stickers for me is a good number. You can put the expense here:
http://link.g0v.london/expenses
@aelcenganda Yes absolutely, tomorrow I will have a chat with Catherine (graphic designer who you met) about new designs, possibly we can get Newspeak or London related stickers ready to print soon
May you help print out the existing stickers design? I also can't wait for the London version
True I agree, I can take care of it this evening
@harrisspinos00 Thank you so much!!!
If so I need access granted, I sent a request on Drive
Also there are 40 designs: the printing co lets you do up to 12 per time
If you need I can do 250 stickers x 10 designs, times 4 orders
So 40 designs x 25 pcs each = 1000 total ~~ what do you think?
nice! this looks fuckin RAD
i feel very inclined to just say pull-the-trigger, but ALSO, would be happy to see less ordered, because London designers might show up and be interested to customize or add a local flair, and so maybe we'll want to re-order in the short-term
but also, i'm way more inclined to action, so don't let me stop you. worst case we just have a shit-ton of stickers and still re-print if anyone want to add personal touches later (just my 2c, sorry if I'm missing context)
tl;dr 🎉 STICKERS WOOOOOO
oh! catherine making some. missed that. we already made it big-time -- custom stickers!
Yeah there’s a dilemma but I want to pull the trigger here too. If it were possible to order 250 stickers / 40 designs we wouldn’t need to have such a shit ton
To be fair I haven’t looked deeper into their terms or gotten in contact, maybe 12 designs is not their absolute limit
i am 100% on the 250 idea. more is gravey, but maybe not needed
i'm down for whatever lets you move at the speed you want to (reading terms sounds boooooring if you can avoid it haha)
@harrisspinos00
I think this is the right files of skill stickers. I think we can also just print general ones like Dig, Push, Fill and Newbie

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/19EskaGwNsPba-qrzVpRtKsRsYYrkai9B
Or just 250 g0v logo stickers, which I am still confirming where are the latest g0v logo sticker files. @tkirby @moon_c @averyying2022 @besslee
@harrisspinos00 We should change the text of g0v logo sticker from g0v.tw to g0v.london (Just thought of it)
@averyying2022 said she put the g0v logo sticker files in this folder as well https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18aHfl6SfLTDkkiykwt8YD4Q1AH6uT2re
@aelcenganda stickers are confirmed on print queue yay

@aelcenganda @ruth.wetters Should we create a public #london-organising channel or something, for organizing-curious ppl to explicitly hop into?
I'm slightly worried for ppl to arrive in the "main" channel and feel like they're in the wrong place because of all the advanced meta stuff
I guess so far it is okay if we put more discussion on the outputs of the hacknight. Creating another channel also works.
