==[https://www.eventbrite.com/e/build-your-own-internet-workshop-tickets-32460849274 Build Your Own Internet Workshop v5]==
*Where: Omni Commons
*Date: 18 March 2017
*Format: 3 short talks followed by interactive workshops on cable crimping, node mounting, cow&chicken demo, TCP postcards - and with t-shirt screenprinting and swag stations!
* Takeaways:
** What went well? (Strength)
*** able to reuse lots of booths and printed matter from previous BYOIs
*** (jorrit) relaxed atmosphere with many conversations happening
*** (jorrit) hands-on actities are fun!
*** (jorrit) food was super-yummy
*** jenny: great to have nico's perspective from the global south & as longtime community networks participant in the larger global community of CWNs
*** jenny: the shirts were hella awesome
**What to do better? (Weakness)
*** demographic (mostly male, mostly white)
*** stack of pre-flashed routers for sale
*** (jorrit) provide more specific things that folks can do after the workshop - how to participate beyond the workshop
*** (jorrit) show more examples of how peoplesopen is making a difference (learn, share, build etc)
*** jenny: more targeted outreach further from the date
*** jenny: don't think we got a lot of devsummit attendees - the idea to make this BYOI more informal and partylike, at a later time, wuz a good 'un & we should do that for future post-confs (or coordinate with organizers to make an omni shindig one of their evening network/chillage events)
*** jenny: realized just after i handed off the mic that i should've passed it to all in attendance to hear at least who was present and what they were excited about or had questions/curiousity abut. in short: more gunner-style facilitation! :D
**What did we forget?
*** nametags
*** pass-the-mic intros for all participants
*** advertising more than a week in advance
***Q-n-A after the presentations....
*** agenda and better-facilitated/stewarded front greeting desk
** What to do next time?
*** (jorrit) Share/build a byoi "cook book" so folks can recycle recipes/ activities - started a drafty draft at https://github.com/buildyourowninternet/buildyourowninternet.github.io/blob/master/workshop.md
*** jenny:  give every attendee at the bat a "doggy bag" of nametag, zine, button/sticker/shirt aka swag, program/agenda and optional home node

* Takeaways:
** What went well? (Strength)
***  mai - panel discussion, informed audience, able to talk to panelist afterward, program

***  lesley - disappointed that teacher with students and parents weren't there
***  lesley - "white nerdy"
***  grant -  number of volunteers committed to each table wasn't great
***  grant - community connection, confusing messaging, little practical application
***  mai - messaging is very much connected to the lack of diversity in participants
***  jorrit - turn people who show up into teachers
***  mai - make more donation pitches
** What to do next time? (Opportunities)
***  get more volunteer committment
*** event planning day before the event itself
***  make broader than connectivity, what do people what go to the internet for
***  collect stories of people in Oakland, not just about pipes, also about content
***  have more clarity of roles
***  get people excited to take ownership rather than having everything decided at meetings
***  but discussions and concensus at meetings is important for some issues
***  firmer protocols? more precedence?
***  instructions at each table, for things people can do on their own after table host gives spiel
***  do it somewhere else to attract different communities/participants
***  find a partnership with another organization - messaging and planning would happen with them / re-think our messaging
***  we should pick a date soon, as a target to work towards
** Threats
***  Jorrit - burn out
***  lesley - culture issues, how responsibility is delegated, when to do things, what is necessary, what isn't
***  jorrit - too many meetings? vague expectations?
***  blake - level of excitement, frustration after investing a lot of time
***  mai - connected to how we work as an org, people who put in a lot of but don't get feedback or acknowledgement
***  blake - over-ligating roles?

*Where: Omni Commons
*Date: 1 July 2017
* Slides available here ( + extended/uncut/hackable version: https://github.com/sudomesh/propaganda/tree/master/presentations
* Takeaways:
** setup better on the floor?
** table/pew layout gave more natural flow around the ballroom
*** maybe next workshop could be more of a project update instead of a welcome to the mesh?
** enjoyed the simplicity, pretty much 1~2 slides per speaker, very cool!
** solid turnout, ~headcount: more than 20 (based on Daniel's photo)
** really liked the "non-Q&A" Q&A
*** put focus more on doing and interacting instead of power and posturing
** chat/hack stations
*** kick-ass lego signage
*** door? lots of SWAG, awesome stickers, donations? square?
*** crimping?
*** wave propagation?
*** garden mesh?
**** wish I could have soldered some headers -grant
** semi-successful node flashing (4 nodes sold + 1 given away)
** people kept showing up (how many people said they came after the talks?)
** had feel more of an open-house hack session
*** idea for next time? legit hack-session/hackathon with midday break for talks/food/chatting?
** people hanging out until almost 6pm!
