Mind Meld Log, stardate 27May22

The Denkiri Centre for Creativity was established on Astraios Prime in the early months of 2422 as a means of outreach to the scientists, philosophers, artists, engineers, and designers who dwell in the Gamma Quadrant. Its philosophy was inspired by the Terran author Gene Roddenberry, who had, in the 20th and 21st Century, envisioned a universe in which sentient life forms would gather to share knowledge, conduct research, and improve the quality of life for all. The Centre hosts brainstorming sessions, organizes an open lecture series, manages artistic exhibits, conducts tours, and works to enhance the immersive environment through building, scripting and developing knowledge of the sector and quadrant.

ACTIVITY: 'Mind Meld' brainstorming session
HELD: Stardate 220527, 10:30pm/2230hrs 3RG/SLT
LOCATION: Denkiri Cafe, UF Starfleet Astraios.
ATTENDANCE: 11


TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION:
how can we attract more people to be part of this vision?

concerns:
-waiting for a 3RG account to be approved is one
-looking not so great on arrival is another
- not understanding that you can't 'search' here
- the UFS entrance exam (esp for civilians)
- people don't want to do Academy

good side:
-we have great people
- a wonderful build
-creative atmosphere
-a history of roleplay and storytelling
-a feeling of neighbourhood, not being lost in the crowds of SL
-relatively low lag
-very cheap land
-good building environment
-very few trolls
- a great philosophy
-help to set-up better avatar readily available

suggestions:
- explain why the 3RG website development has hit a snag
- speak at community meeting about changing grid landing point to be in the avatar help building
- provide a staff board in case people need help
- see if greeters can be alerted when someone lands there
-remind ppl the UFS membership exam is all that is required to be a member

comment:
- how can you say you want to explore strange new worlds, but expect everything to be the same (as SL)?

"Mild Meld is a meeting of minds, a playful tossing out of ideas, silly and serious... the wilder the better... no idea is criticized. We may find that that wild idea and this crazy thought meld together into something really cool, or we may just have collective coffee and rambunctious fellowship. It's all good." As Gene Roddenberry said: "To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst possible thing is for all of us to begin to look and talk and act and think alike."
