(for Zoom broadcast see: Broadcast a message to all breakout rooms: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/8550395207693-Sharing-screen-and-broadcasting-to-breakout-rooms) * **Ending Pomodoro**: Close the breakout room at the end of the Pomodoro. Bring people back in the room, and ask if there is anything they would like to report on - or if they have any questions that others can help address. * **Break**: Remind them of 5 mins break -- use the cuckoo clock. * Repeat for the second breakout - the second Pomodoro might be shorter. * Archive notes in Github 'governance' folder --- # Notes 4 December ## Attendees * Emma * David * Alex * Anne * Sophie * ## Topics/Rooms * Main room - * Quiet coworking room * Engage conference room - Emma and Sophie * Mozilla community call - Jen & Anne (not used) ## Notes * * * --- :::info **Archives of previous Coworking calls are hosted in this archive note (transitioning to the github repository): https://hackmd.io/@turingway/coworking-call-archive** Also contained in governance folder on Github: :::
