IMC Northern England meeting 12th May 2010

Present: JD, Nab (facil), Ptg, JF (mins)

- South Leeds Community Radio has been in touch. They’d like us to get in touch with regard to putting out our (audio)content.
JD suggests that we team up with Riseup Radio and for us to do a monthly news roundup in which various IMCers and other sit around a table ‘chewing the cud’ about the recent stories on the newswire. Recording could be done on in the 1in12 cafe on the 2nd Fridays of the month – this way Riseup Radio could do another monthly date to establish a fortnightly radio show for distribution.
Nab noted that we can also distribute this to other student radio stations and similar community radio stations who are looking for content with local relevance.

- JD has (personally) proposed a (global?) feature regarding Greece.

- Bradley (Indybay) has offered us logins for the imc global site. JD is going to get one, others can follow.
Concern was raised at the notion of having a shared login.

- Eeks has agreed to code an aggregator for imc-uk. We spent some time later in this meeting formulating our list of priorities for such.
