  • Crowdsource
  • Prepare a long-run solution; ask for specifications and requirements => start discussion internally
  • We should initiate using one or two tools
  • Aspects of the discussion:
  • All DiEM25 members should have access => would be more democratic
  • Approval by the VC?
  • REQUIREMENTS;
  • Open source? => In line with DiEM25 philosophy?
  • Usefulness or in line with our ideals?
  • We would have to write part of the software?
  • Open software could be more secure and less buggy?
