Communications

The JSN is providing video conferencing and documentation resources in what we’re calling Virtual Coffee Shops.

Virtual Coffee Shops

Introduction

About Our Virtual Coffee Shops

About Our Virtual Coffee Shops

As part of our effort to support communications and foster companionship across our network, the JSN is offering opportunities for people to share ideas, questions and documentation.  These “virtual coffee shops” include:

  1. Scheduled real-time video conference sessions, structured by the IPP
  2. Session documentation 
  3. Follow-up emails as needed

Suggested attendees will be emailed links to GoToMeeting sessions and document warehouse resources.  

NOTE: In deference to discretion and privacy, the JSN has determined that it will not record or transcribe these conversations.  They are intended to be informal in nature, and that context advises us not to record and distribute them after their completion.

If you have questions about our Virtual Coffee Shops, please contact Tim Sassen.

Documentation

For each Virtual Coffee Shop session, the JSN provides two forms of documentation resources.  The Notable Notes file is a continuous journal of key ideas and topics that emerged in each session.  The Document Warehouse is a cloud storage space to which participants can upload related materials.
