How to join us (virtually) for the global sprint – July 22-23

Our first global Science Lab sprint kicks off in just a few hours in Auckland, New Zealand – and we wanted to share again ways you can join us. We’re excited to see you all and hack on open science tools, educational materials and other resources to help change the way research is done. Below is a quick reminder of how you can join us, either at a hosted site or virtually.

Please note: each of the 18 sites will be operating on regular working hours *in their timezone* for July 22-23.

Here’s a quick reminder of where you can find us:

Mozilla offices: Vancouver, San Francisco, Toronto, NYC/DUMBO, London, Paris.

Non-Mozilla locations: Auckland, New Zealand; Wellington, New Zealand; Melbourne, Australia; East Lansing, MI; Norman, OK; Austin, Texas; Charlottesville, VA; Baltimore, MD; Albany, NY; Edinburgh, UK; Ljubljana, Slovenia; Krakow, Poland.

Full address and contact information can be found in the sprint etherpad, starting under line 131.

Can’t make it to a site? No problem! Join us virtually. Here’s a few ways for you to connect.

Join us on video chat

We’ll be hanging out during site working hours in a Vidyo room, to help each site feel connected to others. Mozilla hosts – it’s Greg Wilson’s room. Non-Mozilla sites – you can access the room via this link.

We’ll be online around 4:30 pm Eastern time on Monday July 21 (just as New Zealand is waking up on Tuesday July 22), and the room will stay up until the west coast of North America wraps up around 5:00 Pacific time on Wednesday July 23.

Have questions?

Join us in IRC in the #sciencelab room: irc://moznet/sciencelab
