Have questions?

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

New to IRC? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Have a look through this post, join us and say hello. http://mozillascience.org/join-the-sciencelab-on-irc/ . We'll be in that room all day on both days.

On Twitter, we'll be using the hashtag #mozsprint. Please tag us there or ping us directly at @MozillaScience.

Care to send an email instead? Feel free to send to [email protected]. We'll be monitoring that as well (though encourage you to ping us ind IRC or on Twitter first).

Join us on Vidyo chat

(Note: you need to have Vidyo installed first: http://bit.ly/1p2O9dZ)

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: https://v.mozilla.com/flex.html?roomdirect.html&key=n5t72Ej4nKeL

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.



Mozilla Science Lab Global Sprint July 22-23


The goals of this global two-day sprint on July 22-23 are to write and build useful things, and to strengthen ties within the open science community by giving people a chance to work together. Work will begin on the morning of Tuesday, July 22 in New Zealand and Australia. As they are starting to wind up for the day, their colleagues in Europe will come online as Tuesday arrives there. They will hand off to people in North and South America a few hours later, and around we'll go again. Sites will keep normal hours -- no all-nighters, please -- and each site will keep wrap up at the end of regular business hours on Wednesday, July 23, local time.

What We'll Be Doing

Anything related to teaching and doing open science is welcome to join the sprint -- the only requirements are that there be something concrete to start with (because experience shows that starting with a blank screen is a good way to spend two days going in circles), and that someone volunteer to coordinate the work.

If you'd like to propose a project, please add it to the list, and mail us ([email protected]) so that we can help advertise it. Also, be sure to create a project page for it (here's our template: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/sciencelab-2014summersprint-template) . If you have any problems, let us know.

Stuck on an idea? Don't worry - we'll have folks at each site that can help you find your way.
