- a **Commit Log** printed on either A3 or A4 sheets - adapt/print the files from the [Commit Log](Commit-Log) folder.
- **Instructional posters** - these can be referred to by participants to clarify steps in the process, or explain, for example, why open source licenses are necessary. Adapt and print using files from the [Posters](Posters) folder.
- **Creative Commons rubber stamps** - these need to be custom made, but it's not expensive, should only take a few days to arrive, and you can use the design files in the [CC Rubber Stamps](CC-Rubber-Stamps) folder.
- **'The Committer'**, an [automatic page-numbering stamp](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bates_numbering). The only requirement is that it needs to have a setting for duplicate numbering, i.e. it will print the same number **twice** before incrementing to the next number. I bought a used Reiner B6, which cost €20 on eBay.
- **Letter stamps** for making the authors' names. These are not _strictly_ necessary, of course the participants could write their names with a pen. But name stamps do make the names very legible, which is important for attribution, and it can be a nice metaphor for github/gitlab handles, the unique online identity which refers to a person... and people love to make their own name stamps. I ordered 20× alphabet sets from a seller on Alibaba, though I adjusted the numbers of letters that I brought to the workshop according to [letter frequency](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_frequency) in major European languages - in a London-based workshop, there isn't much use for all 20× _Z_s, _Q_s or _X_s, though there may be in other areas/cultures.

- **Photocopier** or **multi-function printer** (MFP). This can be a small desktop printer/copier, as it doesn't need to do complex or high-speed printing, and only needs to produce black & white A4. However, I would recommend trying to borrow one, as hiring a copier can be expensive. In London it cost almost £200 to hire an A4 MFP for two days (including delivery), which was the cheapest quote I could find.

- **Typewriter** - you can buy one from second-hand shops or markets, or depending on your location, you may be able to hire one. For Mozilla Festival, I hired an East German _Erika_ from [London Typewriters](http://www.londontypewriters.co.uk/). (For this typewriter, the hire price was £40, or it was £105 to buy).

## Following workshop prototype @ OSD Summit
**Workshop:** [Teaching Open Source collaboration to designers (without digital tools!)](https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/t/convincing-designers-to-embrace-os-methods/312)
**Event:** [Open Source Design Summit 2017](http://opensourcedesign.net/summit/)

On 14th October I ran a prototype of the Cut, Copy & Paste workshop with a group of 11 participants at the inaugural Open Source Design Summit in Berlin. Most participants had a background in designing (and/or developing) for open source software projects. This meant that version control was something they had engaged with in the digital world, and they had experience of building upon the work of others already.
The contents of the commit log and the work we produced can be seen on the [Open Source Design forum](https://discourse.opensourcedesign.net/t/convincing-designers-to-embrace-os-methods/312).
The participants enjoyed the process and had a lot of fun with it, but there were a number of issues that I would like to improve on before the next iteration of the workshop. I asked for and received feedback (both positive and negative) on different aspects of the workshop.
### What worked?
- Very hands on and felt cool to take other people's work and iterate on it.
- was fun to think about it in a different way, especially with the »fixing issues«
### What didn't?
- lots of things to keep track of. Hard to learn.
- Did this work for me because was already familiar with how git works?
- No instant gratification at the end of what we created together.
- Very little time
### New ideas:
- simplification of some of the steps - licensing necessary? does it convolute the things to learn?
- would be cool to actually use this to explain git or version control. Although it might be a bit offputting cause it’s so chaotic ;)
I took this (and other) feedback on board and created 6 new issues to work on, with some initial ideas:
[TIME: 45min is not long enough](#7 )
[FACILITATION: too much 1:1 explanation required](#8 )
[BOTTLENECKS: participants have to wait at the commit table](#9 )
[CONFUSION: Participants don't know what to do](#10 )
[PAYOFF: (participants can't get no) satisfaction](#11 )
[1000 WORDS: Workshop is too text-heavy](#12)
You can spot them in the [list](https://gitlab.com/cameralibre/cut-copy-and-paste/issues) thanks to their big red BUG labels :)

On the 28th & 29th of October, [Judith Carnaby](http://judithcarnaby.com/) and I ran a Cut, Copy & Paste workshop as an ongoing interactive installation in the Open Innovation space at MozFest.
The range of participants was very diverse- from children to middle-age, from multiple different cultural backgrounds, but also diverse in terms of interests and experience with open source. Some were developers who use git every day, others had never heard of open source before.
A blog post is in development and will be published this week.
