How might we...

  • How might we stay engaged with each other on an ongoing basis?
    • How might we capture and share the spirit and content of meetings with those who didn’t participate?
      • How might we lift up Wye River leaders work that is featured in the media in order to drive them to the Wye River Website?

Hypothesis

If we were all connected via the mobile app, WhatsApp, then we’d be able to quickly share updates and videos that others would read and watch.

Design

Ask Sarita, Ev, and Miya at our West Coast Wye gathering on June 9, 2016 if they use WhatsApp. If so, how do they use it? If not, what do they use that might be a viable candidate?

Metrics

Do you use WhatsApp? If so, how? If not, what do you use that might be a viable candidate?

Learnings

Sarita and Miya both already use it. Ev installed it immediately. It took immediately, people were sharing photos of Lisa Frank Stickers post meeting as well as pleasantries. It seems to be a much easier alternative for our participants to take and share video.

Decisions

Do another round, this time inviting the other design team members. Slow, steady testing; no need to commit for everyone yet.

Questions

Updates

Sarita and Miya both already use WhatsApp. Both felt comfortable using it for this group. Ev installed it immediately. People were playful with it immediately, sharing and having fun with it.

The day after, Miya posted a video summary of her conversation with May!

The following week, I asked May and Heather if they used WhatsApp, and if so, whether they wanted to join the group. They both said yes, and they both have posted since.
