i've got green and i've got blues

The Smithsonians Group has officially been buried. Thank you all for the time and effort spent with it. I'd like to do something similar soon. If you have any suggestions or would like to be involved in the creation, please email me or just comment here. In the meantime, I will post the five most recently published blogs here on my blog. Online discussion is becoming a prominent method of communication. Few have mastered the art of efficient and effective online discussion. As a step closer to the goal of having meaningful online discussion, Howard Rheingold has provided a well thought list of ideas to improve hosting of such discussions. I'll put the list out there for your reading as I am currently studying it as well. Let me know what you think. Is this a useful means of communication? Should we be putting effort into improving our methods in this vein?

The list sounds spiffy to me. Sucks that there's such a distance among many of the members (namely myself and the utah-ites). At Borders there are people that go there almost every day just to sit around the cafe, have a smoke, and talk about politics, history, and whatever is on their minds at the moment. That would be pretty spiffy to do, and a bit more engaging than an online only forum.
