The Organizers' Meetup Berlin 2018 was a half-day of activities and sessions before IndieWebCamp Berlin 2018, for everyone who has co-organized an IndieWebCamp in the past two years or at least two Homebrew Website Club meetups with at least one meetup photo.


Similar to 2018/Organizers, the Organizers' Meetup sessions are open to everyone who has co-organized an IndieWebCamp from 2015-2018, planning an IndieWebCamp later this year, or co-organized at least two Homebrew Website Club meetups during those years, and posted at least one meetup photo. If you’re not sure, ask an organizer.


Please add yourself below if you will be participating in the Organizers' Meetup:

Remote Participation

If you can't make it in person but you're available to participate remotely, please add yourself below. Please note that we'll likely make use of Mozilla's remote conference setup, which requires the Vidyo Desktop Client. The link to join the live chat will be at https://2018.indieweb.org/vidyo


Sorry to miss you, let us know if you can't make it and we'll try to reach out with specifics that may apply to your city.

  • Tantek Çelik suggestion reading/viewing BEFORE the meetup:
    • everything linked from this section "Why to avoid negative behaviors" from the microformats wiki
      • especially Kathy Sierra article and Google Videos about dealing with poisonous people
  • Tantek Çelik consider BEFORE meetup, discuss at meetup:
    • should IWCs have red and yellow lanyards for no photo, or ask before taking photo?
      • this might result in that interesting scenario that while the meeting itself was quite diverse, the photos will not reflect it, should people exclude themselves from the pictures, and I remember this being a trouble point with indieweb when it popped up on Twitter as a topic. I definitely don't like random photos taken about me, but I'd very much encourage participating in at least a group picture - Peter Molnar
  • Tantek Çelik consider IWC Organizer kits with:
    • stickers (IWC, mf, webmention, etc.)
    • pins (IWC, mf, pronoun)
    • nametags (ideally HELLO MY URL IS)
    • red / yellow lanyards for no photo or ask before taking
    • ... if this is a good idea, create a separate page for it (linked from [[Organizers]) and make a checklist, and/or way to order (some/most) these things as a set)
  • Tantek Çelik
    • What did we think we did right / better / worse compared to last year?
    • What did we leave open / unresolved from 2018/Organizers?
    • What new community challenges have we encountered since?
    • What are the most important things we can do to improve the community in the coming uyear?
    • Which of those are the easiest / most scalable?
  • Remaining/ongoing tasks from 2018/Organizers#Task_List
  • ...
  • Tantek Çelik
    • we should re-evaluate the generations page (again) at the Organizers meetup
    • It's becoming increasingly imprecise, inaccurate, misleading, and perhaps even alienating and we need to fix that ASAP
