  • 1. Tools & How to lobby the EU - Tools Laurent Peuch September 16, 2012
  • 2. Plan Irc/xmpp/others Twitter Etherpad(lite) Wiki/mailing list/forums... Mumble/skype Parltrack The Political Memory Piphone Pippi Longstring RespectMyNet Press review tools
  • 3. IRC/XMPP (jabber)/others Remember that they exist Useful for working and fast communications Won’t work on a too small community Very geeky, will cut you out of a lot of people (web interfaces helps) Don’t use it if you aren’t used to it Cool irc bot usage: example of UnGarage (collaborative posting and information gathering)
  • 4. Twitter Very useful for communicating to the world If you have for purpose to inform people, you sadly must be on it You don’t post frequently on it? You don’t exist
  • 5. Etherpad(-lite) Very, very efficient for collaborative writing, we use it a lot Can also serve for translations, transcriptions, calling list (wd12) etc... Can be used for organisation (eg: RegardsCitoyens) Demo? Free software (java/node.js)
  • 6. Wiki/Mailing list/forums ... Also remember that they exist Wiki: very useful be need either active members or big community Mailing list: probably the most easy and efficient way to communicate in a community Forum: in my experience not very efficient: high maintenance, not very efficient for achieving things but very easy for people to participate
  • 7. Mumble/Skype Again, remember that they exist Very useful for intense work Avoid Skype if possible
  • 8. Parltrack Share with the Political Memory MEPs listing but is less powerfull on that regards (not the objective) Is used to track dossiers Custom alerts Free Software
  • 9. The Political Memory For citizens and activists World domination plan: you should use it! MEPs by floor/committee/countries/scores etc... CSV export on listings Data visualizations API Free Software
  • 10. Piphone SIP + web interface Free call + automade campaign tool with automatic feedback form Free Software
  • 11. Pippi Longstring Compare texts (eg: ACTA vs CETA) Still need to pass by stf Free Software
  • 12. RespectMyNet Collecting net neutrality violations Could be re-used Free Software
  • 13. Press Review Very good for informing people Lot of interesting trafic on twitter with relevant informations -> lot of followers Easy for new commers to contribute Chain of verifications We don’t have generic enough software to give to you for that :(
