Hey everyone,

It feels like we are having problems finding a space to work on this.
Do we want to try and do this remotely through a google hangout? Or
does somebody know of a good space we might use. I think there might
be a limit to the number of people in hangouts, but we can break off
into different groups and post notes here. I also think we might want
to concentrate more on a specific campaign than building a platform
which seems a lot more difficult. I think most of the people
interested in this project have more of a stake in student debt than
any other area, so I think we should concentrate there. We can always
duplicate the model and help others with similar strikes, but I don't
know if enough debt strikes exist to create a platform for people to
launch their own. I don't want to come at this with too much of a
vanguard mentality, but I think given what I heard at Contact we have
people with a good grasp on the best way to do this. I would rather
have us do one effective debt strike that could serve as a model for
future strikes than spend a lot of time developing a complicated
platform that people might not be able to use effectively. This is
just my opinion of course. How does everyone else feel about this?

Anyone? Has everyone really just disappeared, or has this discussion
moved elsewhere?

Sorry, I'd be up for a hangout.

Actually, I wrote a lengthy response on about December 8. When I pressed "post," it disappeared into the great beyond. :-( Sara

That is a bummer Sara. I'm glad people are still on board for this.
Once a few more people are down for this we can try to organize a
time. Thanks guys.
