    -- Present challenges of online education due to covid19 schools are closed so lot of children facing problems to attend class. Therefore lots of studies has conducted by Govt. and Institution as well as.

    -- So being a independent body commission wanted to give suggestion to Govt. as well as high court for that we started a research mainly coordinating to university and institution so study is on social problems during online education. In this study our objective is to map the facility in the families around the education for example do they have computers, laptops, internet connection and phone.

    -- To understand function of childrens in the team of learning ability so learn from classroom and digital class makes a very difference later i wanted to understand psychological problems for example health related issues and physical activity issues.

    -- If see private school started online class but no Govt. schools are conducted on classes but Govt. doing online teaching through in different platforms like chadan tv kannada and radio classes.

    -- Important aspects of challenging faced by parents in infrastructure investing computers, laptops and phones mainly in underprivileged areas kids are faced more problems.

    -- Dinesh: Yeah good thing that you brought it up i think we should discuss how many of us could be interested in projects.

  • Bhanu: There's one interesting group called Biome so they have archive project and we're discussing with them about how to go with next phases and how many resource do we have all that. So we need one developer engineer person to setup software and other work in archive they have lot of materials projects so that needs to organised. Later we have import all of archive into software which we deployed. So we need somebody from our team who also do this sort of activities were we are involving with archive.

    -- Dinesh: Ref our archive project and is an attempt to enable 3rd parties/interested-people to bring interconnections among these archives.

  • Bhanu: this is project called The Democracy Archive Srirupa Roy from Göttingen we all work to together in bringing up three main collection under the project 1. Long Emergency 2. Campus Uprisings 3. Documenting Domination so that collection contains all this sort of material.

  • Bhanu: syncthing restapi as useful for pulling files into papad frontend. Although it only seems to work for the default folder, so am thinking of adding the papad folder into default folder(~/config/Sync) however they have a warning against using the api citing CPU usage issue.

06 August 2020

Participants: Team

05 August 2020

Participants: Team, Priyanka borar and Deepak

  • Dinesh: Priyanka is here. Lets catch her up what's going on Milli ( and Papad. Actually she has something to share with papad then i thought it could be nice if she attend to get larger picture of what's going on.

  • Priyanka: We started conversation on mirzapur project and possibility of looking where audio tagging, storytelling and then Dinesh told me about archiving. I thought good way to start and pickup a common element to both and then maybe a take couple of months to design that one module. So that's the one in the terms how to get started on this. second is i was looking at those applications for milli archive and i went through the document. So i should also understand what are looking from a designer and how could i contribute to that.

  • Bhanu: As for as Milli is consent its going to be long term project thats what we also started with one module for archive which handles audio that's where i wanted to see merger between papad project and milli as well mirzapur project needs. In design needs in the terms of how to make archive useful and more discoverable and reusable in stories.

    -- Priyanka: So i have one question i understand the intends from which we are doing this trying to do for archive but just short experiment if we remove the contexts of archive all to gather. Then what you find as closest interaction and what you mind about the archive.

    -- Dinesh re: Yeah, What we are doing for mirzapur project they generating data audio, stories, narratives and photos so all historic data is affected this problem because of someone's dependency to archive so someone goes and say they're the makers of knowledge. To begin you go with them and say all this audio data everything is there and i want cross link pieces of it and then push publishable material. So this is whole look at abstract somebody as to connect them.

  • Priyanka: So from this discussion maybe i have two layers that i see:

    • 1 Layer: Of the people who getting the stories from the field which we can considered as data and anybody can generate a story or anybody can record stories and put on platform.

    • 2 layer: execution or curator who want to build an interface on the top of data with a specific intent i could want to curator and make useful certain audience.

      -- Bhanu re: Yeah, you put it together very will.

  • Dinesh: Maybe we can spend some time if arun, bhanu talk about syncthing and other all.

    -- Bhanu re: The platform that we are see and what are the technology how they work this are backend we can call so this is software logical mesh using Yggdrasil Network its open source software it allows anybody connects to that network and all our platform devices and application devices which could be in raspberry pi many version. And another is syncthing it provides service for files system sharing and then all this other application we are trying to see that can help for communities like say toxbot- for audio chatting and

  • Bhanu update: I installed papad and all still didn't install syncthing and yggdrasil and i got pi running and sh can connect from my laptop and i was going through code review from Athithya's code.

  • Mani: am working on Platform-co-op-diagram the illustration part.

    -- Priyanka: I have one suggestion what Bhanu had created layout so you start redesigning way you understood and you can have this as a reference during illustration process.

    -- Mani re: Okay sure.

  • Arun: basically i been working on papad mobile and am just figuring out how to do it.

  • Dinesh: Sanketh and Shalini setting up dinner table pi and unfortunately deepak had to leave but will get back and reconnect after going thru the links in minutes/agenda.

04 August 2020

Participants: Team

  • Bhanu- Platform co-op digream: I wanted to make it non like we have only tech presentation so people and this way i thought this is what value our team will get with whole projet. Like Medha there are learing people and we are tech people. Then i have setting up raspberry pi in home and asked Athithya to update on excel sheet.

03 August 2020

Participants: Team

  • Dinesh: Update on Aug w4p report: So if you guys goto agenda page i have added one link which would be something we need to edit immediately because i have to send soon after the meeting and we can edit it live Aug w4p update (edit session) so we will walkthrough on.

    • So 1st thing in the list is Collecting data from villages and identifying 10-20 girls. Shortlist one village based on data. Can Geetha, Madhu and Upasana start editing then write about what's going on in the Dihaganjiri village as first village to started the activities.

      • In the list No.2 Possible list of activities / support to be taken up with Medha Learning Foundation. That we are observing and what we observing so this two you guys have to edit

      • Then 3rd one is Draft document on framework of packaging Webinar pie technology. Maybe we can start on that so anybody tried webinar?

        -- Arun re: I just installed syncthing and Yggdrasil on my raspberry pi i have to still install papad and all that.

        -- Dinesh: That's what you have to try Bhanu so we have to test it.

      • And 4th is Prototyping webinar pie technology across three different locations (hardware, software and networking elements), Bhanu is currently we are testing the prototype version of the platform.

      • Then the last point is Validate software and hardware compatibility of phones, So we have to try that we have phone here and i think Syncthing works from phone that we'll install in phone and see like how. Then we have to tell Medha what software they can install so that when there are working with girls sharing will start happing and also try to install Yggdrasil on phone. So Syncthing is very important we'll connect to pantoto papad version .Then what we'll do once something is sync we'll tag it all that and overtime as soon as Arun had made some progress with PapApp phone app for Papad then they can use it directly. So that the feature for next month.

  • Athithya: I have an update in Papad so in List view have integrated all record api and am showing on audio url and what are the tags on particular audio and what are channels for particular recording. Still have test and upgrade it.

  • Mani: I was editing on skit video correction and today morning i was speaking to Madhu, how to plan for the skit in OBS software for recording.

  • Arun: Did anybody used MDNS its small network to broadcaste discovers on local network. So for Papad mobile app am thinking of using MDNS to find out which raspberry pi are there in the local network.
