I actually like Yasmin2 (Yasmin - square) in the sense that it is a
continuation and expansion of the idea of the original Yasmin, which implies
also the pooling of resources with the other networks involved. But I am
open to discussion about YAR / RAY / ARY. RAY would be my preference since
it reads as the word "ray".
I am forwarding this to Ekmel so he will be in the loop.
What would be the best way to organize our communication in developing this
resource. There are two starting-points for doing this: An open discussion
in the forum:
and a moderated group with its own forum:
Admittedly this multiple mode of communication (emails, yasmin list,
discussion forum, roadmap group) is bewildering to me, so I can imagine to
others too. But let's wait for input from other members of the community
before making any changes.
I changed the description of Yasmin2 to something more content-centered: "An
Arts - Science - Technology Network for the Mediterranean region. Developed
by members of YASMIN, AMBER and RAMI"
What about other content? Blog, pictures, other links or pages? Would
someone add their review on e-MobiLArt or similar events to this page?
Could we have brief (summary) portrait pages of member organizations here,
like YASMIN, RAMI, AMBER?
