Buenas pr\xE1cticas en asambleas online:

Quiero compartir con ustedes algunos consejos para hacer asambleas en IRC que pueden ser de ayuda. Hago asambleas en IRC desde hace varios a\xF1os (desde 1999!) y hay algunos peque\xF1os detalles que ayudan mucho a mantener una reuni\xF3n productiva y organizada, es una lectura r\xE1pida pero hay cosas importantes que he aprendido a lo largo de muchos a\xF1os, y que son buenas pr\xE1cticas para las reuniones online. Intenta leerlo antes de lareuni\xF3n, s\xF3lo te llevar\xE1 un minuto:

  1. Registros (logs) - Antes de que la reuni\xF3n comience debe haber un responsable de transcribirla. Idealmente tendr\xEDa que ser una persona que sabe c\xF3mo hacerlo, tiene una conexi\xF3n estable y se quedar\xE1 a lo largo de toda la reuni\xF3n, y que va a publicar el registro luego. Lo mejor es proveer un sumario al principio, y luego el registro completo. Hay parseadores de log de chat que te ayudan a poner en buen html los logs de chat, pero eso es para despu\xE9s.
  2. Facilitador(a) - Someone should be picked as the facilitator. This person should keep track of whose turn it is to speak, the current agenda item, and should keep an eye towards the pacing of the meeting.
  3. Mant\xE9n viva la asamblea - the pacing of IRC meetings is important, if it becomes too slow, then people start to drift away to their email, the web, or to other things. People need to be engaged in the meeting, and there should not be long pauses if possible.
  4. Res\xEDstete a la multitarea - Its super easy, while sitting at home in your underwear on the computer to do 6 things at once. Resist. If everyone in an IRC meeting is browsing the web, responding to email, then the pacing of the meeting will be ruined. Stay focused for the meeting duration, it can make or break a meeting. If things are getting slow in the meeting for whatever reason, push things along, don't switch to another window.
  5. Mantente en el /topic - the facilitator should use the /topic command to change the topic of the channel to what the current agenda item that is being discussed is. Everyone should stay on that topic, until you move on. Just like in an in-person meeting, try to keep the comments and questions that aren't related to the topic at hand back until that topic comes up. If there is something you want to say that isn't going to be addressed because the agenda doesn't have your topic on it, bring it up at the end for topics for the next agenda.
  6. Levanta tu mano - Hay dos tipos diferentes de citas para discusi\xF3n en el IRC: libre-para-tod@s, y discusi\xF3n estructurada:
    • Libre-para-tod@s: Una asamblea libre-para-tod@s... is people just talking whenever they feel like it. This can work with some subjects, and if the pacing and timing is done right it can make for a good discussion. However, it can quicklydevolve into multiple conversations at one time. If it starts becoming too fractured, then it might be good to reign things in and have a structured discussion.
    • Discusi\xF3n estructurada: Para ello, para llevar a cabo una discusi\xF3n estructurada, cada cual levanta la mano para hablar, y el/la facilitador(a) mentiene un lista de qui\xE9n quiere hablar, y va cediendo el turno de palabra a la siguiente persona en la lista para que hable. Cuando dicha persona est\xE1 hablando, todo el mundo la respeta y no la interrumpe, y respeta el turno de palabra y levanta la mano cuando quiere intervenir en vez de interrumpir y romper bruscamente a quien est\xE1 interviniendo para hablar. Para levantar la mano, simplemente teclea /me levanta la mano, y el/la facilitador(a) ver\xE1 que has levantado la mano y te llamar\xE1 a intervenir cuando sea tu turno.
  7. Espieza a escribir tu intervenci\xF3n - If you are having a structured discussion, and you've raised your hand, and it isn't your time to speak, go ahead and start typing, but just don't hit until you are callled on. You can often type 8 or so lines of text before you can't type anymore. When the facilitator calls on you, just hit return and it will all be sent at once. This aids in keeping the pacing going because if you have something to say and the facilitator calls on you and then everyone must wait for you to type, then people's minds start to wander. Alternatively, type everything you want to say in a text editor, and then copy and paste it when it is your time.
  8. Gestor del tiempo - someone should pay attention to time and the "vibe" of the group. If you set specific times for specific topics of the agenda, the time keeper should announce when time is getting short and if the discussion seems healthy ask if people want to give some extra time to the topic. Also, after about an hour and a half people online tend to get a little exhausted and start to wander, check in and see how people are doing.
