Sorry, accidental send. Full message is below.
> Only a few folks joined the community chat on 10/18, but it was a really
> fruitful discussion. Some great ideas and discussion came out of it around
> possible initiatives and more efficient communication. The most notable are
> - Great first effort, would love to see continued
> - Greatest need is a new producer (community volunteer) to organize the
> podcasts **PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN DOING THIS**
> - Original producer got swamped and needed to step away
> - Would be great to partner with relevant blogs/news sites (e.g.
> Gamezebo, Inside Social Games) to publicize podcast
> - Interesting idea for sure
> - Dave will get past webinar results from IGDA head office
> - Again, would need a producer/organizer/chief advocate
> Integration with local IGDA chapters
> - Try to set up database of speakers with casual game expertise to be
> provided to local chapters looking for speakers
> - Think about trying to set up local casual meetups in areas with
> critical mass of casual/social developers (e.g. San Francisco, Seattle)
> - Possibly in concert with existing meetups (CGA, Peanut Labs)
> Migrate communications to Facebook group **I WOULD REALLY, REALLY LIKE
FEEDBACK ON THIS PROPOSAL**
- Only a few dozen folks have signed up for the casual SIG on IGDA.org.
(The mailing list has hundreds if not thousands of members).
- Move communication/discussion/event planning/notification to Facebook
where people are hanging around already.
- Using events features could be a good way to plan future chats,
Build templates of best practices for casual games
- Publish a set of relatively static, well-understood best practices for
casual game design and business.
- Could be controversial if laid out as "the truth" but could be a
good set of articles/discussion starter/etc.
Feedback welcome on all topics, and begged for on a couple.
Please let the list know if you're interested in joining future community
chat to help brainstorm up more program ideas, help get some of these
moving, or just to engage the community in a topical chat.
Chair, IGDA Casual Games SIG
