WordPress Media Corps Kickoff Call

After sharing this initial roadmap and answering questions about the Media Corps experimental project, it’s time to flesh out the next steps and get down to work. To that end, I’ll be hosting a kickoff call next week with @bernard0omnisend, @hellosatya, @jenblogs4u, and @mohiuddinomran, who expressed interest in helping with the project’s first phase.

We will also be joined at this meeting by @bobdunn-trainer as a media advisor. Bob has kindly offered to lend his insights at this early stage on behalf of the media side. I’m sure his input and perspective will be invaluable in helping to shape the experiment and make better-informed decisions.

The main goals of this call will be to review the current roadmap, set a direction for the upcoming weeks, and clarify any questions about the contributor work.
