I’d like to hear your opinion: Which topics do you find interesting, and who should we contact and ask if they can make a workshop at the #efct17 ? Or maybe you yourself would like to present the cool things you are doing with your Fairphone / related to Fairphone?
If more people are interested, I would like to experience a “Urban Mining” workshop. I have never developed one, but we could take with us an old mobile that is not able to be used again, so that each one of us could work with one with our own tools. Or maybe in groups of two or three for each old mobile phone to be opened…
The guide of the website of Fairphone could also be useful for the workshop.
I think it could also be good to dedicate a workshop to present the different initiatives that we have been able to gather in the “network of initiatives aligned with our Movement and powered by fairphoners in different sectors”. Here the link to the proposal in the forum.
I hope that by August we have some of them identified in different countries!! I offer myself to develop that workshop,…hoping to have interesting initiatives already gathered. The thing would be of course, not only (1) presenting them but also (2) talk about them and share different experiences from all of us attending the workshop. Maybe (3) potential next steps to better develop the network…
Edit by @Stefan: We could also dedicate a workshop to set up the initiative in the first place.
I would like attaching an Infra-Red diode to the port and control it via a TV remote control app. It’s an easy example (yet too difficult for me). Idea came yesterday on the monthly OpenStreetMap meeting having a TV screen close to us which was set way too loud But as I said, I have no skills here, so I cannot hold the workshop.
I would like to show how I managed to have email, calendar and uploads both on my fp open and on my ubuntu laptop - FLOSS free libre open source. If that is possible? Did you get any other suggestions? Best
