I think that it might be a good idea, at least while we are starting this network, to have an on-going text-based discussion about what we want to do and how we are going to achieve it. This is probably better than my original suggestion of having Skype meetings because it means people can respond as and when they want, and we have a written record of people’s thoughts.
We can create forums on this website (see the Forums entry in the menu) and I think that is going to be the main platform for discussion, since we can group things by subject.
But I wonder if it is also worth having a Chat box so we can talk live to anyone else who is logged in. This is more informal, but might help to build relationships. So I have added a chat box (bottom-right corner of screen). It’s not ideal, since the chat box is too wide for some mobile phones. Let me know what you think by adding a comment below. Thanks.
