Dear Fred, Stuart, and the rest, Our group is in the process of coming up with a new plan of how and when we hold our meetings, etc. It ocurred to me that we could have alot of very good discussion on the Internet just like we do here on Coho-L. Those cyber-meetings would supplement, but not replace, our face to face meetings. Some of the opportunities I see are: no need to set a schedule or find a place; no need to arrange childcare; people who don¹t contribute well in large group discussions may find a written discussion more appealing; and when we do get together for a face to face meeting, we¹ll already have done a significant amount of processing of the issues. Many in our group are already cyber-capable and others seem willing to find a way to get access. Have any other groups played with this idea of cyber-meetings? Any reaction, good or bad? I'm not much of a computer whiz (understatement) so I don't know quite how this kind of thing would best be structured to allow us to have our discussion, keep it cheap, and make it easily accessible. Any suggestions? -- Mac Thomson San Juan Cohousing ganesh [at] rmi.net Durango, Colorado "Have the gumption to live differently AND the sense to let everyone else live differently."
