Can you get, can you hear me now? Yeah, so every time you there but we managed to make it happen to the tank to see you at Roland to Don mcelwee sigiri, Ted Ambrose and Ethan and Bella ice ice event. Because so many people showed up to In doubt until you I think they're two or three weeks ago with the F, 150 recalls travel outside and come to the venue that I had on the other side, we have been learning so much from this event learn how to make sofrito see if we always have somebody who come in screaming but this time
how to handle. How to make different portals in in supplier. This event. Yes. And so what's going to happen next? I don't know when the situation will be resolved, but it's in the last few days. People people everyone around the table to, to say, connect in to into work together on Solutions, so we can stop by in the room. But also from the people on my wewe helping to organize, I'm tired of online platform where people can come and say a digital solution around the covid-19,
you know, that dead people walking from Italy, Germany had a situation in which we basically see information about all the number of cases in Greece this and this is more important that we should have been going on. Online around, it would be like it. I don't know if we can pull it off in 3 to 4 weeks. I mean, like, you be always making things very stressful for ourselves, right? But like if we can't really wait. Yeah. I mean like the the numbers of people affected since they go up and it's not just people
affected by the virus is like economically. It's in many ways. And I just saw a projection that if we actually slow down, the virus is awesome. Me that this crisis will go on much longer. The projection projection is right now, or at least until March next year. I am so happy. That is a long time and we really need to work together and find a way. So we had a few chats with us today as well. And the idea would be to have like three different kinds of ways. How people can collaborate
today. Seconds, equal 2 have online Workshop Tree of Life, workshop, and share it with other people. So that's the second that idea to start would be to create an open collaboration and channel them in an event that people could work on together. Like in lets say in over a weekend or over three days and this can go on 24 hours because now the entire world is affected. So, Very open to this idea and we will discuss this with the next step forward. Right after we need everything to be at with the open.
I want to do in the room. So so maybe like a we can have a short a circle around what what is the effect of people so far? What are our next steps? Opinion stories. How did you find this event? So that he can hear and then he can like have to go into the second microphone. Okay, home, can you hear me? No, I have the I have two. I have I have just see over here at this one, okay? Okay, nevermind. Looks like the home cannot hear me, but I think you guys up I think that
the social eventually, but I would say that the talks were all considering the amount of changes we had to go through. I think that that was a very well executed very well put together. And I came along to help out Wendy Juanita. I need for the feedback chance, anyone else? I mean, for me is I really enjoyed it. It was good and the food was good. Any issues for anyone found or run into something missing? Send that you were not allowed to put on the clip, Mike, right? Because of safety and all that.
I just got. Yeah I mean that's the only pity but you know because when you're doing the recording of the talk, will be very nice if there was a mic to a very nice and clear but that's a it's inevitable. I mean you can do ya On the first day in the lecture, Theatres in other one. Yeah, the Big Dipper, some live speaking through the internet, the Google, The Google lady night. I'm just wondering if you would, it have would connecting a lan cable solve the issue, was it because he's connecting through the Wi-Fi and all that.
Okay. Yeah, it's right. Oh, I see so security. I need something wrong with your projector to use that to projector send. So, is it now? Anyone else likes Evie and the streaming at all. Today you have any feedback in the in the side of the stream, on the changing itself. all right, I just They may have seen Jose. Okay, I attended the flask training conducted by the students. It was just great, you know. I mean, I really enjoyed it and the teacher, I mean, the student
who is teaching us was so patient and understanding and really, he, I mean, he didn't rush through eating yet and all that. You know, he really took the time to 802 peaches, you know, I really really appreciate that. That was really great. The flasks flasks teaching, and, What's the other one be done by students at Denman school as well? Add sqlite at the students Denman School. The Eighth Day, from some organization of block, s, g, or building block building block
For the feedback on the conference, what to do. Community project about tackling covid-19. A school project. Open a project. Org. So that there are several pieces, broken up into those communities. Are already working on the mechanical. Insulators was just time to bleed the people working on the oxygen therapy, so I can do the whole lot. Yes, but I think decision has questioned his bunch of past. I happen to mention that sooner than later. Any feedback on a good battle room for improvement. In our
match, reduced the time in to make it happen. Good, good, good, bad indifferent. And then I was very low. Is this the usual turnout for all? Ages are so many people from coming to Singapore. But everything else is all very old and he's like a big smooch. I defense. Nothing more to. It sounds really anything to Cindy. We could improve. We shine. Looking forward through the looking to the Future like with all these outbreaks happening. I think maybe we should prepare ourselves fully online.
Yeah, I dates are the vehicles. We may need to prepare ourselves fully online operation and that's sort of where we're going. And one of the big questions that race was held workshops, which is part of what the discussion you ever heard here. So yes, we already swimming at because I hit the point for those who haven't realized, it doesn't have a date on it, it is a year, but not the day and part of the thinking headband, that if the ministry of is a six weeks ago when we were young and naive.
And so at that time, the discussion got a lot of was that we would be willing to invade be willing to go ahead with a September event. That may still be possible but frankly I'm starting to think it will not be next year. September unlikely match. Next year is looking unlikely even do it and so yeah, we don't really want to have a night for the next 12 months and so I think we have no choice but to look at ways to do at least some useful things, to the others will transform how we function.
But yeah, where do we get to do the 2nd event and use the same t-shirts with the same here on them? I'm not sure, we, we might not get to What anything you would like to improve? And I'll definitely come again this year. Put the video. Thank you. Let us hope we have a while. We would be able to grow and also contributing to the light to light things changing and I'll soon be submitted. So that's that's pretty impressive. Especially I like you. It's too. I'm driving for catching. Only the video uploads Machining
station to change of the sort of daily hourly in Sumter at the minute and the cooler at 4. Ambrose for the guillotine in particular, He's resting sleeping lady that. I will think of things afterwards. Edwin the cold wish to switch modes on the cool ways to provide a back hand controller to you cuz I have to meet myself. So you've been to fall station almost every year, the biosphere year. And and also About like to see how can you continue to engage with us in the future travel to
Singapore? I like it. I like to, to make if you would like to do, I like to meet all the people who are curious and watch watch at auction that I'm giving. And so this is, this is like a big festival and it's so bad that so many people are putting so much work into this event and now, the participation is so limited because of people I think people like the definitive experience to 2 to walk around and two to be curious and and it's about to be a discover to discover things. And so
these are all things that we are missing right now to to learn a lot of new things and new ways to work. I don't have a good idea what it could be, what we can do the next year, but it's a really good opportunity to find it. Yes. Yes. So I'm thinking Misha and enjoy what we can do. So in the end, they also lie in the fact that they can learn how to set up the video and Chain by the nightmare becomes a positive way. Then he comes to be and also want to order Shea and learned.
continue to run the events at Rolland National Auto Sales and we do not even have been and I think that even we only have one, but if we did it before, 10 years ago we was back when people can show up in the good thing is that all videos available online and people can do Yeah, we will continue. so, as soon as people are allowed to get together again, However it takes all along, it takes it to be becoming a big Festival everywhere, and every kind of opportunity to meet and I'm two things. Together will be will be taking so I think you must
carry on as your conference and events because there will be a time after the corona crisis and people will be so happy to participate. Again I'm I'm very sure. Festival of this is over and I think for a long time, Victor Rowland. Well, I don't think we put my tools to cover. I said thank you, sweetie. Sorry. But everyone before we wrap completely, In the room or on jetty. Alvin Remains the indomitable social organizer and ask who's going to be tonight?
I might look straight up. I'm not going to do. I have with some mixed feelings, a lot better than the 22 cm. And as organized as we can't, thank you because we can think of that, we both can cause of course you have 3 people in a relatively free country, you can look into it and at the moment that we should be going to do is win, so there's no objection to people.
