To Do

Organizers, feel free to take these tasks and either quickly do them, or claim them (to work on them) and your name in front of the item.

  • update the 2016/NYC page to have all the same sections as 2015/SF
  • create all other 2016/NYC/ subpages (see 2015/SF for what subpages it has)
  • ... add anything else to this list that you think needs to be done before the event!


General areas/roles of responsibility that we need organizer / volunteer help with.

  • Venue: Tantek (with help from Lara)
  • Food: Lara (with details from Tantek)
  • Signs: Lara
  • Video equipment for broadcasting (and hopefully recording) demos: (David Shanske)
  • ...


  • Are there enough extension cords / power strips for everyone sitting at the tables to plugin in their laptops?
    • Yes.
  • Does MozNYC have extension cords, surge protectors, and a screen for presentations in the event space?
    • Yes. We have the presentation capabilities in 2 of the conference rooms and one in the main lobby/kitchen area where ~12-15 people can sit around the table and couches.
  • What are the number of rooms available simultaneously, capacity, and facilities in the event we break into groups?
    • 1 large conference room (~15 people)
    • 1 large table + couches area (~15 people)
    • 2 medium size rooms (6-8),
    • 2 small rooms (2 people each)

    • TBD. If we need something else we can go to Staples and pick up, it's around the corner.
  • have sharpies?
    • Yes

Initial Planning

This is an archive of the initial planning for IndieWebCamp NYC 2016, originally found here.

2016-01 IndieWebCamp NYC.

  • Mozilla NYC is a very doable weekend venue (8-15 people, several breakout rooms)
  • Interested:
  • co-organizers: ...
    • Tantek Çelik can help co-organize and be the Mozilla connection to help with hosting
    • David Shanske willing to try to work with anyone who needs help in the Northeastern United States, and possibly farther afield if sufficient notice.
    • ...
  • ...

Some date constraints:

  • weekends are preferable
  • I ( Tantek Çelik) can get in-office help thru end of February 2016 for Moz NYC venue, not necessarily after.
  • FSa work better for David Shanske so we're considering those dates first. But he has nothing scheduled for January/February weekends and would accept any.

Possible dates: (all are Friday…Saturday) Please add your ** +1/0/-1 signature preferences!
