Campfire, marshmallows and conversation! The MM team gets together regularly in a sort of free-form discussion that’s not quite a chat, and not quite a discussion. It’s a cross between instant chat and performance art.
c: so we had this idea… ever the process maniac I’m wondering what happens if we all co-author a google doc?
Mel: I mean, we can treat it like a chat, should work in real time
Miguel: REAL TIMEEEEE
Coolest instagram post you saw this week?
new things for MM to explore?
c: has anyone seen these guys https://movementcultureproject.com/
c: Mel did jesse’s new thing go up this week?
Mel: Yes, it’s live! Move More is a coaching notebook filled with drills, games, ideas, and other resources. Here’s the link: https://www.themovementcreative.com/move-more There’s a video with Jesse explaining the project, check it out!
c: ruby, “Wowwwww” what wow?
^mel: oh right, yes jesse did mention that to me, but I haven’t gone through it. I know his team worked on that A LOT.
Mel: They did, and it sounds really interesting.
c: shit- i forget what I was going to type .
Mig: Good on the movers team to put a video at the top of the website because i was stuck there for a minute haha
c: ^mig I read “movers team” and I thought you meant us derp
Mel: Another interesting thing from this week; Lydia Mullen of PKGen Boston wrote an excellent article on gender diversity in parkour, and practical tips to achieve it. https://medium.com/@lydiamullan/improving-gender-diversity-in-parkour-5ac736427839
Mel: Did you guys know about Parkour Earth’s Global Engagement series? I just found out about it this week, but it’s been an ongoing series since July. Really interesting, worth a look. You can watch previous examples on Parkour Earth’s website, and there’s another scheduled for next week: https://parkour.earth/parkour-earth-global-engagement/
Cuz I’m gonna copy-n-paste into our Discourse-based forum, what we are typing is going to “understood” by the platform as being in “Markdown” … use underscores around things to italicize… use two asterisks to bold i am italics I am bolded
c: no other takers on my “coolest insta’s from the week?”
c: ^mel, we can’t hear you …link or it didn’t happen
Mig: I was trying to figure out how to put an image on here, it’s not an insta but it made me laugh
c: yeah, uh, the short answer is we a URL for the image… so for example, I can rt click on the banner on my blog… or, eg, PKEarth’s banner
c: wait what? I’m staring at images and paying attention to Markdown and image inlining… but id din’t look AT the image— brah! that’s dark.
