The first community brainstorm is taking place in about a hour and 40
minutes on #hot on irc.oftc.net.
I realized there might have been a bit of URL fatigue in my last email.
Here is a shortened link to the spreadsheet where we are collecting ideas:

> Hi All,
> We've received our grant award letter and returned it to Hewlett. Now it
> is time to get into specifics of what we will do over the next year with
> the support provided towards our Ebola response. As stated before the aim
> of the grant is to improve our technology and activation capacity.
> The HOT Board, activation leads, voting members and myself have begun
> putting together ideas in a spreadsheet (1). The idea is to get together
> an idea of what is needed so then priorities can be later ranked and
> determined what can be done under the umbrella of the $200,000 grant.
> Below is the timeframe of the steps in the consultation.
> 1. Gather initial requirements with activation leads/board (finished)
> 2. Consult with voting members (finished)
> 3. Consult with community (with live meetings to discuss) (20th October -
> November 1st)
> 4. Rank importance of features with help from tech team and activation
> team (21st October - 7th November (ongoing as feedback is submitted))
> 5. Create requirements documents for specific items based on importance (7
> - 15 November)
> 6. Begin putting out HOT Tech Challenges and Contractor requests (15th
> November until grant money has been allocated)
> The community consultations will occur on IRC at the following times. If
> it is not possible for you to make any of these times please let me know
> and I'm certainly available to chat at a mutually convenient. time.
