@darshana Still very much in progress with layout but wanted to give you something to take a look through. If this early of a state isn’t helpful, let me know.

Talk to NYC

Talk to NYC is working to introduce tools that will forge a stronger connection between NYC citizens and city decision makers.

itsmisscs 05:25:22
Mobile/small screen is probably the better view for now.
dzn 05:27:07
It is helpful. I’ll change some of the content wording and ordering to make it work better
dzn 05:27:16
are the pictures stop-gap?
dzn 05:28:36
also, let’s have taking and making a survey match up in layout? maybe flip the picture/text order to add some contrast?
itsmisscs 05:28:51
haven’t added images yet
itsmisscs 05:28:57
i will get to that
dzn 05:29:00
also also, I think the steps to take a survey should go on another page
dzn 05:29:30
I like our usual cyber democracy image for the top one
itsmisscs 05:29:40
not sure if we have credit for that…
itsmisscs 05:29:51
as a public project we can’t use images without permission
itsmisscs 05:30:28
for now, focus on content. i’ll get another version with images and links over to you
dzn 05:30:41
let’s write to artist and maybe he gives up permission?
itsmisscs 05:30:48
go for it 🙂
dzn 05:31:10
cool
itsmisscs 05:31:18
i endorse this plan 👍🏾
dzn 05:32:41
saw the layout suggestions?
dzn 05:32:55
for the taking a survey and making a survey parts?
itsmisscs 05:37:01
i feel like i’ve missed something
itsmisscs 05:37:03
where?
dzn 05:37:45
the taking a survey and making a survey bits look different
dzn 05:37:51
in layout
itsmisscs 05:38:10
i don’t remember but i’m also not done with layout yet 😉
dzn 05:38:11
the second part still undone?
itsmisscs 05:38:13
yes
dzn 05:38:18
ah cool
dzn 05:38:21
that makes sense
itsmisscs 05:38:23
i just wanted to get it to you for content review
dzn 05:39:13
yep
dzn 05:55:52
went through the content and fixed some things
dzn 05:56:30
the changes are *the underlined bold* parts
itsmisscs 07:02:05
awesome.
itsmisscs 07:02:10
there are the tampons mitra ate
itsmisscs 07:02:18
in her vomit
itsmisscs 07:06:13
i am confused about L47…the take a survey portion. you’ll notice that i started to move content that’s linking out to a new pad.
itsmisscs 07:06:41
can you move the take a survey content that you envison on a new page to either a new pad or https://pad.riseup.net/p/take-polis-survey?
itsmisscs 07:06:52
thank you! i will update the prototype accordingly
itsmisscs 07:08:00
if you could do that for the reminder of that page, would be great. i’m not entirely sure i capture the content correctly.
dzn 07:25:32
hey. I’m back
dzn 07:25:45
you mean, take a survey and make a survey instructions??
dzn 07:26:53
L47 in which pad?
itsmisscs 07:29:41
i am having a hard time parsing what goes on the homepage and what’s another page
itsmisscs 07:29:57
so if you could move new page content to another pad or use https://pol.is/createuser, would be helpful
dzn 07:31:48
sure. I’ll spit into home page and the rest
itsmisscs 07:35:06
🙏🏾 danke
dzn 07:35:24
🙂
dzn 07:36:15
how does this look?
itsmisscs 07:39:33
👍🏾
itsmisscs 07:40:10
are these all the other pages then: https://pad.riseup.net/p/take-polis-survey?
itsmisscs 07:40:19
seems to be missing privacy
dzn 07:45:54
wait, I’m confused now. don’t each of those sections lead to another page? One for each section? The pad you sent doesn’t have most of the content stuff in there.
dzn 07:46:48
how do you want me to organize content for ease? Each header will have a content page is what I thought
itsmisscs 07:53:43
maybe we can make a site map quickly?
itsmisscs 07:54:03
i moved content out that represents pages into a separate pad because it was hard to distinguish
dzn 07:54:15
site map sounds good
dzn 07:54:49
Also, some of that text can be swapped with the screenshot instructions
itsmisscs 07:55:01
that’s not as advisable
itsmisscs 07:55:11
better to have text for accessibility and search engines
dzn 07:55:11
both text and screenshot instrcutions?
dzn 07:55:15
cool
dzn 07:55:40
also, email to photographer of the NYC pic we like so much…
dzn 07:55:46
Dear Mr. Laforet,

We are huge fans of your work and would like to use one of your night over New York images on our website.

The website is for our non-commercial project, Talk to NYC, through which we are working to forge a stronger connection between NYC citizens and city decision makers by the introduction of participatory democracy tools into NYC governance.

Most happy to point you to the website and share any other details you would like to hear about.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Hoping you will consent to the use of your image.

Thanks!
Talk to NYC team, Darshana and Claudina

itsmisscs 07:57:41
car situation is a bummer…probably going to rent a car to get back to nyc for a few days then come back to pick up the car here
dzn 07:57:46
I braved the rain
dzn 07:57:50
mostly for my addiction
dzn 07:57:54
but air was good
dzn 07:58:02
ping when you are back
itsmisscs 07:58:02
not raining here….just very limited options within walking distance
itsmisscs 07:58:22
and now it is getting dark due to my delay…
dzn 07:59:18
saw Erin’s email? The one I sent you??
dzn 07:59:26

itsmisscs 08:00:03

itsmisscs 22:57:07
I can send off all the emails early morning.
itsmisscs 22:57:43
Tried to push through last night and had to get some sleep. Bunch of car errands and needed to take mitra on a long walk.
itsmisscs 22:58:10
Sorry this is delayed 😞 Between not feeling well and pol.is mocks my schedule got pushed out
dzn 23:01:39
Morning! Stand up?
itsmisscs 23:02:11
si si
itsmisscs 23:02:23
will call you from DM channel since we can’t start one here
itsmisscs 23:02:37
we will have to move to another service if other folks want to join standup. bummer
itsmisscs 23:39:26
✅ standup 🙌🏾
itsmisscs 23:49:54
@darshana : a grid like this with each survey. an icon and name…clicking it takes folks to survey page. i say we embed the polis surveys on talkto

dzn 23:50:24

@darshana event tonight https://civichall.org/events/reboot-citizen-engagement/

Civic Hall

Reboot: Citizen Engagement | Civic Hall

Reboot Democracy brings together innovators in the technological and political spheres, helps them connect with each other, and supports their development of tools that will revolutionize our democratic system.

itsmisscs 00:20:43
I wish I was in town
dzn 00:21:42
I will go! This is good
dzn 00:29:48
RSVP’ed for the event. We will have the website by then, that will be good!!
dzn 00:30:24
think I should try to get a talk in?
dzn 00:30:31
can’t hurt, right?
itsmisscs 00:48:36
can’t hurt!
itsmisscs 00:50:18
we can def have a solid homepage up. and decent looking interior pages
itsmisscs 01:08:37
@darshana couple things for future
itsmisscs 01:09:08
for screenshots: we need to share a folder, zip, or put them on trello card. it is impossible to pull images from google slides :stuck_out_tongue:
dzn 01:09:41
damn! ok. we will do this differently
itsmisscs 01:09:49
also, i highly highly recommend evernote clip functionality. over mac’s screenshot capture
itsmisscs 01:10:00
i’ll take a couple shots of what i think could work in each of those
dzn 01:10:14
cool! I’ll keep that in mind
itsmisscs 01:10:17
i wish we had more engaging illustrations but we will make due
itsmisscs 01:11:22
all good 🙂 figuring out what tools work best
itsmisscs 01:11:46
also thinking it would be good to have a short blurb under “Understanding the people in order to make more effective decisions.” headline
itsmisscs 01:12:26
something like “From government officials to city planners…”
itsmisscs 01:12:47
state whom the tool is for
itsmisscs 01:13:09
and the more i read those boxes the more i think we could combine the content…there are two for templates that can be combined
dzn 01:18:35
I don’t want to dictate who uses it but get your point for sure
dzn 01:18:39
How about…
dzn 01:18:57
A working nervous system for society. Crowdsourcing information in order to make effective decisions.
dzn 01:19:45
Soon after that they see ‘get started on your own survey’
dzn 01:19:54
between those two points it should be clear
dzn 01:21:54
sending icons your way..

I love “A working nervous system for society” but i don’t like it for copy on a site for people
itsmisscs 01:49:42
simple and clear and calling out some people that can benefit from making a survey feels good. we need to be inviting and open to all.
itsmisscs 01:59:29
@darshana can about page also include aims of the project?
itsmisscs 01:59:39
I really like what talkto.tw does
dzn 01:59:47
ah. will look
dzn 02:00:44
I like!!
itsmisscs 02:00:47
for now because we dont’ have another site up, i’ll put in our bios but i’d love to see us move the page more in their direction
dzn 02:00:51
I will put something into that pad
itsmisscs 02:00:56
cool 🙂
dzn 02:01:27
it’s good to have our bios. people will want to know who we are
itsmisscs 02:01:54
emily got back to us
itsmisscs 02:02:13
yup yup agreed…bios should move to the project site and company site eventually though.
itsmisscs 02:02:25
> Hi Darshana,

I was forwarded your request and would love to learn more about what you’re working on!
What is the best way to learn more?

Best,
Emily
dzn 02:02:32
Just saw!
dzn 02:02:54
whats to send? 🤔
dzn 02:03:06
when do you think website will be ready?
itsmisscs 02:03:33
that’s a loaded question. i would not count on it. i’m getting screenshots now so homepage doesn’t look so bare
itsmisscs 02:03:41
but still have lots of work on interior pages.
itsmisscs 02:03:54
i was hoping to reduce that by including steps on homepage 😛
itsmisscs 02:04:42
my intial idea was to have a single page site..scope has kinda grown, but in a good way 🙂
itsmisscs 02:04:57
i would send links to our presentations
itsmisscs 02:05:12
and say our site is launching this week
dzn 02:05:38
sounds good
dzn 02:08:37
I’m going to create a third presentation with bits of our 2. Will do and then send over. I think that will be good
dzn 02:08:51
also, will be nice for them to see a presentation since that is our request
itsmisscs 02:09:00
image for Easy to Use. Open for Everyone?
dzn 02:09:04
*send over to you
dzn 02:10:05
depends. send me what you have in mind for one of the other sections in ‘take a survey’
dzn 02:10:14
I’ll riff off that 🙂
itsmisscs 02:11:45
we dont have many options
itsmisscs 02:13:05
help figuring them out or letting me know what you were thinking in terms of the screenshots you took would be helpful 🙂
itsmisscs 02:13:09
i’m at a loss for most of these tbh
dzn 02:13:14
we can use a pic of pol.is visualization
itsmisscs 02:13:36
yeah i have that
itsmisscs 02:13:38
but there are 6
itsmisscs 02:14:43
i’m going to change it up so the make section uses icons too.
dzn 02:15:58
was looking at talkto.taiwan for inspiration
dzn 02:16:00
thinking
dzn 02:16:01
itsmisscs 02:16:19
my thoughts are: 3 images from polis in the take section
itsmisscs 02:16:40
icons in make section and probably switch up formatting to be all in a row instead of stacked
dzn 02:16:49
the first 3 can use pol.is screenshots
dzn 02:16:57
for the make a survey, screenshot won’t really work
dzn 02:17:06
not of pol.is anyway
itsmisscs 02:17:39
ya, exactly why let’s use icons
itsmisscs 02:18:25
eventually the first four can be switched for images with an overlay. it’ll add a bit of depth and humaness to the site
itsmisscs 02:22:14
ooo cute open data icon
itsmisscs 02:31:20
lol buzzword icon collection from Duke uni
dzn 02:36:13
I know!! the open data one is so cute
dzn 02:36:35
sending this presentation to Civic Hall
dzn 02:36:45
check it out?
dzn 02:37:58
if no time, that’s fine. I’ll send away
dzn 02:38:24
It’s just a combination of v-Taiwan stuff from first presentation and our work from the second
dzn 02:38:32
gives them a better picture I think
itsmisscs 02:38:51
looking
itsmisscs 02:39:32
looks great
itsmisscs 02:39:47
made one edit on title slide…removed betanyc mention for now
itsmisscs 02:39:53
looks goooooood
itsmisscs 02:40:02
noice. pro slide maker
dzn 02:41:00
good catch
dzn 02:41:23
lol. shake and bake 😉
itsmisscs 02:41:45
mention talkto.nyc?
itsmisscs 02:41:57
or holding off?
itsmisscs 02:42:30
*finges crossed* will be great if you can present!!
dzn 02:43:48
send me screenshot and I will add a slide
dzn 02:44:09
after our pol.is bit
dzn 02:44:47
or in the share data openly bit
dzn 02:44:59
we do have a media icon after all
