July 17 Announcement. Changed Dates
Announcing FAWMSTOCK 2020: Here, There, and Everywhere. Revised Dates August 14-15, 2020
FAWMSTOCK 2020 NowherePlan
Since we cannot have a FAWMSTOCK gathering in person this year let’s take it online.
On Friday August 14 and Saturday August 15, 2020 lets get together online to:
Meet online face to face through videoconference software.
Share livestream performances
Share songwriting and other workshops.
Have live FAWM challenges-- skirmishes, games, etc...
Interviews with FAWMERS
Moderated Discussions and Panels.
How it will work, is it will be a self organizing unconference style event coordinated on the 5090 Forums.
I have co-opted the Elsewhere sub forum as a suitable location for a non-gathering that is occurring nowhere and everywhere.
Hosts will choose a topic, concert, workshop etc and a timeslot. They will be responsible to choose the platform suitable for their topic (Zoom, Twitch, Facebook Rooms, Google Meet, Etc...) and post the links when available.
You can claim a timeslot here on the 5090 Forums, and I will try to keep the schedule up to date according to the discussion.
If you want to share about the event online, I have made a bit.ly link to this forum post. https://bit.ly/2020fawmstock
The schedule is subject to change depending on whoever wants to volunteer to host and when.

Please post in this topic if you are interesting in hosting or if you have any questions or comments. If you wish to host at a time not listed, just suggest it and your proposed topic.

My initial posting on July 6 had the dates of July 24-25, but this conflicted with other online events.
Update: July 9: We seem to have hit a snag with the timing of the weekend. There is a quite a bit of crossover between the FAWM and FILK music communities so prior to posting this, I checked @EricDistad 's http://filkstreams.org/(link is external) to make sure there were no conflicts. At that time the weekend of the 24th showed as clear of any filk-related events. Since then the virtual Confluence weekend was posted for the weekend of July 24-26.
I am wondering if we should postpone our virtual FAWMstock weekend a few weeks to avoid conflicting events. I am seeking both comments on whether we should change the date, and suggested dates. Let's see what people think until Tuesday the 14th and then we can see if there is a consensus.
July 17: I have confirmed that the weekend of August 14-15 looks clear. I have changed dates accordingly. If you have signed up for a timeslot on the initial weekend I just moved you over to the corresponding time on the weekend of August 14. If you need to make a change, let me know.
