[games_access] Improved Communication Applications

I think there are two pretty distinct needs - general chat, and collaboration on projects.
For general chat / news / etc, the other SIGs use either email or linked in. Personally I prefer linked in, but it does have the fairly big problem (as with wiggio) that it requires people to sign up for a site that they may not already be using, which is a barrier for people who only have a passing interest.
If we do stick with email, I agree that it could do with a bit of an upgrade, making the sign-up form a bit more up to date and informative, and someone at the round table suggested having a web form interface for contributing to the list too.
For collaboration, it depends a bit on the scale of the project. For some things just a couple of people co-editing a google doc has been fine, doing something like dividing up into sub-tasks and tracking progress would be overkill.. But for something more involved, I completely agree, a tool like Trello would definitely be useful.
Perhaps a master Trello setup would also be useful, so there's a single location for information about any things that are currently going on? Smaller projects could just be a single link out from Trello to a google doc or something like that, and any bigger ones live on their own sub-boards?

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I agree with you.
I wish for collaboration editor. That would be great.
I also suggest a vision and aims with the S.M.A.R.T. form.

Dear IGDA SIG Accessibility members,
I wondered if we should not upgrade our communication means with easy to use applications and keep better track of our achievements and such than going back into e-mails if we want to look something up.
We could utilize Wiggio (https://wiggio.com) for communication (which also let you send reply per e-mail) but works similar to Facebook or Twitter with Message + Comments. Plus it is free.
Another free tool is 'Trello' (https://trello.com/) there one can easily utilize Cards as To-Do Lists, Achieved Lists, etc. It also allows to integrate checklists, etc. in the various cards. (Although I would for simplicity sake and main communication rather suggest wiggio - if we were ever to switch - because it is much cleaner, interface wise.)
I work with both in the remote company Space Dwarves Entertainment and found them useful, just a suggestion :)
