  • SoMove 
1. Clarify: ask questions of clarification about the work 
  • Does SoMove already have stories of infiltration that are recorded/produced?
  • Do you, or SoMove, have a definition of 'Inflitrated?' +1 +1 +1 +1
  • Will the feed be curated at all?
  • What kind of impact do you want to achieve?
  • Can you talk more about how you will be organizing these stories aside from time, place, and tags?
2. Value: Comment on the strengths of the work
  • Solidarity is hard! This can help.
  • Infiltration is often done to divide. This helps to inoculate against that++

With our project, sensing IMSI catchers, we're trying to do something that is difficult and invisible to so many people and we're trying to condense into a thing that is valuable for individuals.

  • Game that maps a route -- where you can/cannot go, how do you get from point A to point B
  • SimCity-esque game that allows you to rearrange a city or laws to be more accessible to registrants
  • Battleship - guessing game of the limitations and boundaries around people affected by the registry. 
  • How you get at the absurdity of the sex offender registry?
  • Check boxes of the offenses that count as sex offenses, # association 
  • problematic because it makes the "badness" of certain offenses subjective
  • Choose your own adventure text based game
  • Alternate world where there is no sex offender registry
  • Is a game a good idea? 
  • There is a distance from gameplay -- is this a good way to encourage empathy?

  • Chalk the lines - draw chalk outlines at the perimeter marks around schools, parks, other locations where people on the registry cannot live
  • choose a specific town, use the day as a way of sharing information about who is on the registry, how it marginalizes people and leads to recidivism
  • Personal Stories via postcard - do you have other ways of sourcing these? to protect anonymity, could you use a kind of anonymous postcard project like: http://postsecret.com/ to gather stories from people about their lives on the registry?
  • Proxy access - create ways to get around ex-sex offender restrictions around electronic communications
  • can you set up a group and have it admin'd by people not on the registry but acting there as the conduit for folks on the registry?
  • can you do this on other systems/services?
  • Test your Knowledge Quiz
  • Provide two cases of different severity, ask which would be put onto the registrar, would be a trick question 
  • Quiz on statistics provided
  • Messaging experimentation: because your audience is people who have no personal experience with the registry and most of the work you've been doing is reaching out to policymakers, try using this project as a way of testing messaging with this audience!
