Hi all,

Good news that WBMv13 will take place this crazy year!

I have a proposal toward making it a little more interesting than a pure
online conference.

We are working these days, as many others, on the concept of hybrid
events. Online events that take place also offline in one or more
locations where a few people can gather physically and connect to the
online space together.

We experiment with different such hybrid formats (others more "physical"
others more "digital") in the context of a new event series, called
7at7, it happens every 7th of the month at 7pm [1] in a physical space
in Zurich, L200, https://langstrasse200.ch, and online always at the
same address: https://7at7.digital, redirecting to a BigBlueButton
server maintained by a local group, the Digitale Gesellschaft (Digital
Society). See https://7at7.ch/ and https://7at7.ch/tools for a draft
page on the infrastructure needed.

So, the idea is that spaces like L200 can become hosts for small groups
in different cities which could meet to participate at WBMv13 together.

What do you think?



[1] The next 7at7 event in November will be a hybrid exhibition on
"campaigning for digital rights", which will collect material from
successful campaigns like the gafam.info, display it in the space and at
the time of the event, November 7th at 7pm, go through the exhibition
with live commentaries from people involved in the different campaigns.
The details are in progress and please let me know if you have such
material or suggestions.
