Cohousers, Keep your eyes peeled and your VCR's, scissors and audio tape decks ready: At our Rocky Mtn. Cohousing Assn. board meeting last night, it was noted that because of the front page article in USA Today last month that several TV networks, radio and print publications are planning significant coverage of cohousing in the next few weeks - a real surge of publicity. Could people please post media events as they hear of them? Several of those mentioned at our meeting were just tentatively scheduled -- they can always be bumped for "late breaking" stories... If we picture an innovation (cohousing) being adopted on a large scale as a bell curve, could it be that we may be about to hit the steep upside of the curve?! Or is it just a blip in the media landscape? I'd bet it's the former -- because there is such a craving for community and belonging out there. Anyway, I agree with other people's posts that having good national coordination is going to be more and more important. The continental org can be thrifty -- as lean and and keen as possible, but let's not underestimate the vision so that it hamstrings the movement. Here's a follow-up suggestion to Rob's about needs vs. wants. Suppose you were going to invest $100 in this continental coho org. What would you want your money to go for -- $10 for this, $20 for that, $50 for whatever? Caveat: *Nobody* has thought of setting continental dues at $100. Just supposing!!! Michael M
