Panelist Selection Methods: Let's discuss adding transparency
As a follow up and to keep the discussion going from the West Planning channel on Slack I’m making this thread so we can discuss the future of our Pinny Panels at PAX and figure out a more fair method of deciding on who will be on the panel and what topics will be covered. Also, the added transparency and use of the forums will lay the groundwork for future panels, give everyone the opportunity for feedback before and after each PAX Pin Panel™, and create a more-permanent-than-3-days-history-of-Slack storage location for all of this glorious information. Hopefully, one that involves all the community members who would like to contribute towards or have a chance at presenting on the panel.
Some backstory for those out of the loop: The PAX West Panel was starting to be planned by a group of 4 (myself included) who were asking the larger community to submit topic ideas they would like to present as a means of filling the last 2 slots on the panel. While this was generally considered a good idea as opposed to just choosing people, there has been talk that this should happen for the majority, if not all of the panelist slots. So in an attempt for fairness and more transparency, something that should be absolute in our growing community and that I personally highly value, we began a discussion about ways we could address panelist selection in the future.
Obviously a lot of people feel strongly about this topic, whether they support one method or another, so I’d like to keep this thread going so that we can really nail down what this process should look like, if not for West then for our Pinny Panels in the future.
Let’s keep this thread on topic
and only use constructive
criticism and feedback please. If you need an idea of what that looks like, check out the Post PAX threads
elsewhere on the forums. I am not quoting any of the Slack discussion so feel free to repost those thoughts in an organized manner here so we can weigh everything equally.
Thank you all in advance for your help and contributions. I know that you can never please everybody, but hopefully we can find an approach that we agree is fair.
