   <kaz> [8]Jan-19

      [8] https://www.w3.org/2021/01/19-wot-marketing-minutes.html

   Sebastian: we spoke about video captions
   … also we discussed about web site content. In particular, we
   focused on the menu entries and the getting started page
   … Ege proposed to use the lecture material that he is using for
   IoT course at TUM
   … any objections to publish the minutes?
   … ok, minutes approved.


   Sebastian: I'll show you the current version of the video.
   … (showing the video)

   Cristiano: the video is great, well done!

   Sebastian: I'm really satisfied about this version of the video
   … from my side it is ready to be published
   … last issue is to add a watermark logo on the top right corner

   McCool: I like it too
   … we have to chose the thumbnail for the video
   … can we choose a thumbnail for youtube?

   Cristiano: yes, it is possible

   McCool: the last scene is boring I like the one with wot in the

   Cristiano: +1 from my side

   <kaz> +1

   McCool: maybe the watermark will not fit very well in every
   … if it is small it should work

   Sebastian: I think it is ready to conclude the work with the

   McCool: I'll prepare the paper work to pay the author

   McCool: my main concern is that the video is promising a lot. I
   hope we could deliver the same experience

   <koalie> [Coralie arrives; apologizes for losing track of time
   :/ ]

   Sebastian: (summarize what we had discussed so far for Coralie)

   sebastain: (shows a thumbnail proposal)

   Coralie: I am not sure about the process to use the thumbnail
   … where do you want to publish the video?

   Sebastian: it is ok to publish in the main w3c youtube channel

   McCool: I agree too. btw our explainer video is there.
   … but it has a wrong thumbnail

   Sebastian: right

   Kaz: let's ask Dominique
   … by the way we have to make sure that the animator is working
   on the caption as well

   Sebastian: first he'll finish the video with the watermark

   Sebastian: youtube has a caption feature

   Kaz: if the animator can provide a caption file, e.g., WebVTT
   or TTML, we can ask Dom to work on that.

  Website PRs

   Daniel: there are two PR. The first is about the navigation bar

   <kaz> [9]Welcome page

      [9] https://w3c.github.io/wot-marketing/

   Daniel: the home entry in the navigation bar was removed.

   <kaz> [10]PR 105 - Navi updates

     [10] https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/pull/105

   Daniel: the second one is about the activities entry

   <kaz> [11]PR 107 - feat: restructure general activities entry

     [11] https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/pull/107

   Daniel: the activity page is split in three sections.
   … activities relative to task forces, general events and Web
   Conference meetings

   McCool: do we have content for each task force?

   Daniel: yes we do
   … I removed the taskforces without content

   McCool: It's useful to add use cases meeting because it is the
   very first point of contact with the outsiders
   … you might add the dates for vF2F and PlugFest. They are
   almost fixed.

   Daniel: I'll do

   Sebastian: in the entry page, what about adding the video here?

   Daniel: good question, I would not autoplay but yes we could
   try to add

   McCool: Why don't you try to add it below the tweets feed?
   … getting started is a little vague. It should be renamed
   (i.e., documentation)
   … tutorials link is also missing

   Daniel: right

   McCool: also I'd add a link to the spec in the documentation

   Daniel: there's already the link in the task force pages

   McCool: we could link from multiple points
   … IMO Getting Started should be called Documentation and
   Developers Tutorials

   Daniel: about the video we have to work on it

   <kaz> [12]Jeff's video thumbnail on the WoT Landing page

     [12] https://www.w3.org/WoT/

   Kaz: we can do something like Jeff's video thumbnail at the
   left bottom of the WoT Landing page above

   <Zakim> kaz, you wanted to mention use cases tf and marketing

   Sebastian: daniel, could you provide some options for video

   Daniel: At least we could have it as a tweet
   … the problem is that the tweet will be moved downwards

   Cristiano: I've seen video used as gif background

   McCool: I think positioning it below the tweet feed it is ok

   Daniel: I'll show some picture proposal
   … did you merge the two PRs?

   Sebastian: It is the next step

   Daniel: ok I'm merging the navi update
   … merging also #107
   … it should be live soon

   Kaz: regarding the Activities page, removing the other TFs like
   Use Cases, PlugFest and Marketing is fine at the moment, but
   those TFs are also very important because we discuss testing
   and other issues there
   … so I think those TFs should be also added soon

   McCool: agree, and would like to talk about that during the Use
   Cases call, etc., this week.

  add TUM courses material

   Sebastian: Ege kindly shared the content of its course about

   Sebastian: (shows the content of one of the pdf provided)

   Sebastian: there's some unrelated information

   McCool: we could share them anyway if we clarify that the
   material is from TUM
   … of course reorganizing it as a WoT tutorial would be better

   Daniel: we should ask Ege

   McCool: usually course material is owned by University
   … we need their permission in the end

   Sebastian: agree we should talk about it with Ege

   McCool: still we could integrate this work stating clearly that
   it is a TUM tutorial

   Sebastian: I'd merge the PR so that we have the files and later
   organize in links
   … ege should have also videos

   McCool: there's also a course by University of Barcelona
   … we could link those course in the tutorial section

   McCool: wot farm would be cool to have the farm up and running
   … Intel could provide a server
   … it would be a nice playground to understand wot specification

   Sebastian: ok. About PR 106 should we merge it?

   McCool: ok

   Daniel: ok

   <kaz> [13]PR 106 - add TUM courses for tutorial
