New travel paradigm? How CS website and surfing couches around the globe can make the world a better place


Last year, I took a mid-life hiatus from my normal routine and with the aid of a website called couchsurfing.com, traveled around Italy, France and England staying with hosts. I had an excellent adventure and experienced cross-cultural exchange. I see the use of technology allowing us to consider a new travel paradigm that is more economical and fosters beteer international relations. I will share my experiences and tips for doing this safely.



Any interest?  Or is it eliminated for being a day late?

I heard this person gave a session at BarCamp this past Saturday and
it was a pretty good session. I'd say if we had an open spot we could
give it to her. Its an excellent topic.

Where are we at with openings? I know that Jillian was one of our
primary backups.

Yeah, that sounds really interesting to me! I vote in even though it's
late. (Sorry for the slow reply, I've been out most of today.)

As him if he is willing to be an alternate. No need to make a decision right
away.

I'll let them know they're an alternate, then we can choose (or not
choose) 2-3 alternates on Monday when we meet next.

Thanks,
Jason
