Since the successful and important IC meeting in Rabat this past May, the World Social Forum Communications Committee has asked that working groups begin forming. There are approximately 8 demarcations within Com Com, but tasks and scope are obviously overlapping. There is none such working group with more relevance to the entire WSF process than the Technology working group, one of the 8 subsets of Com Com, which itself is a subset of the IC.
For many years, this work has been done by many of you that are still on the lists. Once again, we're asking for your dedication and participation to address some immediate technology needs, form larger more policy-based processes, and define long-term goals with specific WSF events in mind.
As of immediately, the working group will begin its own set of regular meetings, tangential to the Com Com weekly chats, use its own tools to organize and formulate its own strategies for growing membership.
Our next meeting is scheduled for MONDAY JULY 6, 14h UTC to 16h UTCWe connect via IRC chat through irc.oftc.net channel #wsf. Directions for connection are on the webteam-wiki (URL below).
Please join us for our first meeting online MONDAY 6 July 2009, 14:00 UTC - 16:00 UTC. We plan to follow the

All participants are expected to act as representatives of organizations within global social movements for the sake of accountability. However, please send out this call to participation to anyone that you think would be interested in organizing with us.
