First Thursday update and invitation
- Hi everyone
This month seems to have raced by, so it will soon be time for our next "First Thursday".
Moving to our "new home"
Some of you will remember with affection the "old days" when we met for "First Thursdays" in the worknets chat room. When that closed we were "homeless" for a while. I had to experiment with other locations. I managed to continue holding some kind of "First Thursday" each month but, for reasons beyond my control, they were not so easy to hold in a way that was open to everyone. (I could only invite people who had told me beforehand that they wanted to attend and had sent me other details as well.) For a long time I could not find a location that was as welcoming and accessible as the chat room. Now we have discovered and tested "etherpads" as a new location - and I think that is where we will stay.
My thanks to "the pioneers" who have helped with my experiments in using "etherpads" as our new meeting place. I look forward to more people joining in, now we have tried a few things out and have some examples of how it is working.
