Mini Virtual Millennium Project Planning Committee Meeting June 29th
57 participants visited Doodle and June 29th has 35 votes with June 26th in second place with 30, so the mini virtual MPPC meeting will be June 29th at 9 AM New York time and end between 11 am and 12 noon depending on how long the open discussion at the end goes.
Because that is late at night for Asia, those Node Chairs will go first and then on around the global ending with Silicon Valley. Jose has put together the sequence and will keep time. If you are not on the list below, but plan to give your update, please send me a message. And if you cannot access Zoom or are unable to attend, please record a 2 minute video and send us the link and add the link next to your name at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gxyVenT4AefLnDXlrn1i8zR3HRe1AF1xAUpwQvkw0Nc/edit?ts=5ec70620#gid=0
Here is the sequence of the Node reports:
3. South Korea
5. Sri Lanka
11. East Africa
43. El Salvador
46. Silicon Valley USA
Since it is difficult to compress 2+ days into 2+ hours some ground rules:
Each Node report will be 2 minutes (practice before June 29th) with a minute if there are questions. Although some Node Chairs have their co-chairs speaking too, the total time per Node is still two minutes. Jose will be the time keeper; don뭪 give him a hard time, he is only respecting those who have not spoken yet and those who worked hard to keep their report to just 2 minutes.
When you are not speaking, remember to have yourself mute. This is really, really, really important.
You can load your pptx on your website and or at slideshare.com, or somewhere, and then add the link next to your name at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gxyVenT4AefLnDXlrn1i8zR3HRe1AF1xAUpwQvkw0Nc/edit?ts=5ec70620#gid=0
The logistics of each Node Chair sharing their screen showing their pptx will cause delays; so prefer that we look at the pptx at the google doc above before and/or after the meeting. If you insist on sharing your screen for a pptx, ok, but if you have technical difficulties we will go on the next person, so we won뭪 lose time ?and can come back to you later.
I will ask Tony to open the Zoom link maybe 30 minutes early so people can test their connection, get used to muting and unmuting, say hi to friends, just like we do before our physical MPPC meeting.
Agenda: After I give an update on The Millennium Project (Accomplishments, Covid-Scenarios, New Nodes, AGI Governance) along with Ted, Elizabeth, and Concepci?, the 2-minute Node reports will follow, and then an open discussion on The Millennium Project. Let me know it there are specific topics you want to make sure we discuss.
Tony will record the whole meeting. This is likely to be a very information-rich meeting, so you may want to go back to the video and take notes. It will also be available for those who could not make on the 29th.
You can use the chat function of Zoom to put references, ask questions, make comments, etc., so that the chat record will also be a good source to review along with the video..
Some have asked about inviting others to observe, Ok, but we have a limit of 100 audio/video participants. So if there will be 60 of us, then it should be ok with space for 40, but they have to be on mute. They can join in the open conversation at the end.
Anything I missed?
Ah yes, there will be two international RTDelphis as part of the input to the US Covid Scenarios with the Red Cross ?see the chart below for the whole process ?the first two RTDs are in process now. The fourth and fifth RTDs will be sent to you to invite relevant experts. A proposal has just gone out to several foundations presented by the Red Cross. There is a budget for Node Chairs in the proposal to get participants to share their views. Naturally, will let know how this turns out and we will work with any Node Chair that wants to create their national Covid Scenarios and Actions.
