I realize the calendar invite for our meeting is for 1hr
I thought it was for 30min
Any thoughts on the correct meeting length? :)
Personally I think 1 hour or 45 minutes at least to give some padding to starting the meeting and wrapping it up.
Welll, today, Erin's "Thanks everyone" came at 37 minutes, so obviously that's the correct length :laughing:
45 minutes seems reasonable.
I think it depends a bit on how we expect to use the meeting
If the purpose of the meeting is to do work (i.e., we will discuss in depth or try to do some editing etc)
then an hour is good
that was part of our original idea, that we would do a lot of the work synchronously, but I feel like we've 'sort of' tended to do that
I thought it was an hour as well but when you called it it seemed ok this time. So, next time an hour?
But then, if we exhaust the agenda, then we add something if we've used up less than half an hour?
Well maybe the problem is the agenda isn't full enough sometimes.
although this is the first time it has been so recently. perhaps Zulip will help make it easier to select agenda items
@nikomatsakis What would you think of using the next meeting to brainstorm how to move forward with the "legal entity" issue? I'm just looking through our GitHub issues, and that's a topic that can definitely fill an hour of discussion.
what would our goal be? I'm not against it, I just know there has been lengthy discussion on internals
@Val Grimm I would say to try to make some progress in defining a initial scope of what we want to achieve, talk through the reasons for making a legal entity and find which of those reasons we think should be prioritised, and what we think should be left off the table for now even if we know it's important for the future.
I'll update the agenda
@XAMPPRocky I don't think that's a good idea
I'm working through a few things internal to Mozilla first, getting some ducks lined up, and I don't want to disturb those discussions.
Sorry for the relative radio silence, one other thing I've been organizing is talking to some other organizations to get a better view of their experiences and trying to post some notes from those discussions -- a lot of people reached out to me after the blog post, for example. But I don't want to do those too publicly because it's harder for people to speak frankly. I'm trying to decide what's the right balance there. :)
