It seems there's quite a few of potential unmonasterians out here. Rather than waiting for the various cogs and wheels of organisation to coalesce there's plenty of opportunity for us to already be getting to know one other. I am interested, along with some technical help, to start hosting live online chats in relaxed cafe style on a weekly or twice weekly basis. This simply provides that much more opportunity for more of us to connect, start sharing stories, ideas and potential collaborations. We are already here though maybe not so motivated to write. To more simply show up for a chat, to say hi for no particular reason others than the sharing of a thought, an idea, to tease out a hunch, lowers barriers of entry and communication. We're all over the map guys, we don't all have the luxury of f2f, but we do need to be talking to each other, to start creating a stronger ecosystem and culture of communication. Lets start preparing the field here eh?
