The Friday morning meetups are proving our concept beautifully – at our busiest we had a turnover of around 50 people through the morning – there is a solid core of regulars emerging, those who can’t make it every week are still up for helping however they can and there are *still* new people coming in through the doors and going “Oh, this is really good!”
I’d like to move things forward towards the bigger vision of having a permanent place where we can socialise, work and learn. I think we have a great opportunity here to walk the talk of “organising without organisations” and so in order to make sure that the thinking and working goes on outside of just my head and the handful of people I’m able to have one-to-one conversations with, I’ve seeded a few pages on the wiki under the heading of
What’s there is very rough but it’s a start – feel free to add, amend, or completely disagree with anything you find there. If you don’t feel comfortable *editing* stuff in the wiki or you want to ask
questions, or discuss something without changing the wiki then the mailgroup is for that too or you can leave comments or tweet about it or do something in Facebook or upload a presentation to slideshare or whatever you want to do….
It would be great though if you at least take a look though and invite others in to help too.
