4.1 - Short report of the board members 1)

  • Board:
  • Guillaume:
  • Bailey: I’ve been working crazy hours and also dealing with some PPCA challenges that I won’t get into I do not have much to report on, aside from continuing to do social media stuff and the Pursuance Project (which you all have been invited to). I also participated in a radio broadcast yesterday (Sunday) about basic income with Ray, Christian Engstrom and a few others, which went very well.
  • Keith: On baby leave this week. Did some more prep work for TT3. Fixed a location that we can use for the base of the conference, HaMifal, which is an art gallery and public events space that is managed by Noam Kuzar, our Spox of PP-IS. In addition we can rent another location if there is demand from more people that sign up in advance. Please sign up for the event and distribute it. A link is provided below.
  • Koen:
Nothing for PPI, working PPBE summer event
  • Nikolay:
I've provided some photos, videos, comments, translations to foreign journalists about "march for internet freedom" (Moscow, 23.07.2017) and #FreeBogatov campaign orginized by PPRU and other left and right -wing parties and organizations, PPRU did good job as one of organizers of the "march" trying to bring maximum flags and banners we had, and we get good worldwide media coverage
Also it was first time when the left and right -wing parties went together at a meeting against internet censorship and mass surveillance
  • Raymond:
As usual lots of Activism, still struggling to get enough content for both Twitter accounts, especially @PPInternational. Need to focus on that going forward. Negotiations with IP is ongoing and we have had progress. See own point. Pursuance, see own point. #FreeBogatov, good news and good press. Done a couple of interviews. Huffpost, IBTimes London and Daily Dot planned. Continuing networking with the Spanish speaking Pirate world.
  • Thomas:
nothing to report, will be at pirate summer in Poland starting next weekend.
Bastian gave an addition about an interview with Channel One Russia which has Thomas had co-organised an Interview about "Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz" (German) - ["anti-hate speech regulation"] <----
AlexVox_PPI: 1st channel is main propaganda TV channel, and when russian government want to implement restrictions - they starting to tell lies about "same" things in Europe. (known fact, don't care), i'm just afraid that they will provide wrong\fake translation of your interview, they did it in past few times

5 - Proposal No. 1

5.1 Financial news

PayPal- Guillaume said that he was setting us up with a PayPal plus account. Is there an update on that?
Payments- There have been no requests for payments.

5.2 Pirate Conference 2017 (GA)

PP-CZ enquired about whether there were any updates as we are past the due dates that are listed on the Wiki:
I informed them that we delayed the decision until the 26th and would be discussing the conference at this meeting. The website still states "16.07.2017 - discussion of submitted offers (PPI Board meeting)"
Give in time (deadline) is postponed until the 06th of August 2017. The timeline will be changed accordingly.
Unanimously accepted changed accordingly

5.3 Membership database

Miss Kitty Hundal is still working on this. Coding. Nothing to report but there is progress.

5.4 Crowdfunding

TT3 Campaign- A document was set up with linked forms for sponsors, presenters, volunteers, speakers, and participants, which has been updated recently:

So far, only Bastian and Keith have signed up as participants, and only Keith has signed up as a speaker.

will add myself later, Thomas
Bastian signed as sponsor, too. ;-)
Is there an update on posting this information to our website?
How would you all like to proceed to distribute this, especially targetting speakers?
General Campaign: The fundraiser CF platforms remain half set up, as I have not had the Paypal for Switzerland or ID numbers there. It would be great to use Gofundme, Kickstarter, or one of the more renowned CF platforms, but most of them require personal or organization identification numbers, which must be from the registered country. So far, we don't have an individual in Switzerland who is willing to provide personal id, nor do we have a registration number in Switzerland. We do have a registration number though for Belgium. Should we use our Belgian PPI HQ and registration number for the CF campaign?

5.5 Pirate Awards

Guillaume said he would send an email to start the discussion with the international representatives, which should take about 4 weeks. Is there an update?
Guillaume proposed that Ray, Keith, and Guillaume organize the board recommended awards.
When should this meeting take place? Anytime before 17:00 CEST should be fine.
postponed, Guillaume's "baby". Him doing it.

5.6 Think Twice Conference

We have a venue that will serve as the base for the event. The Mifal. If we have a lot more people that are interested, or more money to spend, then we can book an additional location. The seating at the Mifal will only be about 50 people. However, it is located downtown and we also have contacts with numerous other halls walking distance away that we can use. So, TT3 can use more than one location when necessary.

5.7 Social media updates

long elaborated report. Please listen to the recording.
Volunteers are welcome. Contact Bailey or Ray

5.8 Video Campaign

5.9 Monthly outreach meeting

Is there another one planned?
There will be progress this week.

Have the system engineers on Bastian's team gotten together with Cedrick's team?
We are working on exchange SSH-Keys. Should be done within this week. (Bastian)
