The Barnraiser is a 1-page daily "newspaper" we're publishing during the PL Barnraising as part of the Documentation Committee (DocCom).
We see it as a lighthearted (but hard-hitting journalistic) way to summarize and share in a succinct, low-burden, but regular way, what's going on at our busiest and most productive event of the year!

We do a paper-based layout, as shown above, on a poster!

We're specifically looking for:
- reporters to cover Barnraising events, sessions, and culture
- photographers to get great front-page images
- editors to help polish/trim/layout the final paper
- publishers to get up early to print & distribute
We're starting by taking notes on the layout board in the Auditorium, and on this notepad:

Editorial & Layout Meeting
We'll be meeting just after dinner to collect up articles, and start layout for our first issue. Find Jeff!
Typically, we ask folks to collect story ideas and take notes throughout the day -- at the Barnraising, each session tries to wrap up with some "takeaways" to report back during dinner. These are also great story material, and asking people for articles during the dinner report-backs is a good way to invite people to join in.

We'll use the talk page of this wiki page as a (chaotic) staging area to collect material and links over the course of each day. Please dump content there with your name -- and/or just take paper notes and come to the editorial meeting at the end of the day!
