Hello unMon, I just got off the phone with Ben.
I'm sorry for the radio silence over the past few months and apologies I've not been as active on this thread.
We have some exciting things shaping up with Near Now that have been and are going to demand a lot of my time but I hope can contribute to the Summit activities and the wider unMon capacity.
It is for this reason that I am going to have to throw a small spanner into the works and say that the original dates proposed might warrant me unable to provide the necessary level of support on the ground in Nottingham to ensure the Summit is meaningful.
I discussed this post with Ben and we agreed that it would be helpful, given this news for me to propose workable dates that could be set in stone and that create new opportunities to connect with the work we're building at Near Now.
Proposed dates are as follows:
w/c 26 October 2015
w/c 2 November 2015 << This date may be ideal as we could connect it with a planned workshop scheduled for Saturday 7 November?
w/c 14 December 2015 - Similar to above we may be able to connect this with planned activity in Nottingham.
I recognise that this may be frustrating given my lack of engagement until now but if we could find dates that work related to the above then I can be more actively involved and provide support where it is needed.
