WOW!! What an interesting conversation!!
You know .... about a month or so ago ... when I was chatting with MBM about allowing new members to join the site ... I told him that I (somehow) envisioned doing something BIG with the Board one day!! Of course, I had no idea at the time WHAT that "big" thing might be. Still don't!! But I told him that maybe one day we'd be able to get together and harness all the incredible talent and intellect we've always had through our core members.
Seems to me everybody here seems to know or do something special and individual that can be connected in complimentary ways!!! Plus, perhaps, with the addition of a few new 'others' that we might be able to attract (through some select-but-well-placed invitations to join the group ... and I KNOW I keep saying that ... but it's important to avoid the riff-raff, if ya know what I mean!! ) ... but that if we put our minds to it ... I figured we could probably "launch" some sort of project or something meaningful if we REALLY tried!!!
He told me he'd be happy to let us use AA.org as a "springboard" for something like that!!! And to let him know what he could do to help!!
Sooooo ... if we were looking to do/make/create/launch/build/voice/advocate something together as a group ... we at least already have an established name and Web presence from which to do it!
