Join our first community call! (November 14, 11 ET)

We’ll be kicking off our community calls next Thursday, November 14th. The call is open to the public and will start at 11 am ET. Calls will take place every four weeks, running with the monthly Software Carpentry lab meeting.

The Science Lab meeting is our community call, running every four weeks, highlighting what we’re up to as well as work of the community relevant to science and the web. Join us to hear more about current projects, ways you can get involved, and discuss issues around open science. The calls are made stronger by your participation, so do join us.

For our first call, we’ll look back on our first MozFest, as well as discuss the findings of our recent code review pilot with PLOS Computational Biology. Have a project, an idea you’ve been mulling over, or a post on open science you find especially interesting? Add it to the etherpad!

We’ll be joining forces with our Software Carpentry colleagues for the 11 am call. Greg will be doing a deeper dive after the initial Science Lab meeting for those interested in hearing more about our work in digital literacy.

Mark your calendars, and help us spread the word.

For call-in details and links to the etherpad, see our wiki page. We hope you’ll join us.

    Is this a phone conference? That pretty much excludes international participants… Is there any reason it can’t be done via video chat?

      bandwidth is a big issue (and the dial in is free if you’re using skype outside of the US). worth experimenting down the road, though!

    I’m very excited with Mozilla Science Lab, and would love to get involved with some ideas – however I really really hate phone conferences. :) Hope I see some of you at the Berlin Satellite Conference next week though!

    Hi Stian! The call will be short – and we’ll be writing up everything afterwards. Would encourage you to give it a try and/or join our mailing lists to join the conversation. You can also reach out to us by mailing us at sciencelab at mozillafoundation dot org. Thanks!
