    Let's do it!

    See, that is my vision of Synergy

    and Coach Universe for that matter.

    that's why I selected wiki (PyWiki actually, since it's written in
    Python I figured one of you brain giants out there might be able to
    take that and actually enhance it so it is searchable the way God
    intended, etc)

    because this allows *anyone* (meaning anyone in the English speaking
    world who is literate and bright and has access to the net, shares
    our vision, you know, anyone at all)

    this allows anyone to craft and edit pages (open source, right)
    without knowing html, without understanding how an ftp client works,
    without registering a domain name, anyone can easily and effortlessly
    have a voice and have a robust website.

    As a matter of fact, the way I see it, Synergy Central and Coach
    Universe are community property. Sylvia and I are funding the costs
    right now, however it is only a matter of time before the site is
    sustainable, and in the mean time, it is beginning to attract thought
    leaders, change agents, pioneers, visionaries, coaches, consultants,
    just as we intended.

    I'm really excited about this proposal. There are so many concepts I
    want to share here. I subscribed to this list a while back, but was
    overwhelmed with everything that was going on and made the difficult
    decision to cut back on some of what I was up to. I'm not sure why I
    unsubscribed rather than having "go to web" but I believe it was that
    I didn't invest enough time in this container to know what was
    happening, who is here, etc.

    The reason I bring this up is because something motivated me to
    subscribe originally (again, do not remember, however it must have
    been compelling because I limit my subscriptions to containers that
    speak to me and that I resonate with. Perhaps I did a search on
    egroups for groups where the word "Synergy" appeared. That was
    probably it.

    Anyway, so now I'm no longer a member, but somehow I get a message
    from Bernard and I'm thinking about how difficult it is to align
    those who would make sense to participate in a virtual project
    (especially a voluntary one, especially given that most of us are
    already "maxed out" (we are very busy, with not as
    much "discretionary time" as we would like) and so this becomes an
    issue not just of coordination, or critical mass, but also of
    attention management.

    Well, Bernard, sign me up. Let's go for it! Thank you for saying hi
    and inviting me back. By the way, here is a link to a parallel
    discussion I am having with Denham Grey regarding <a
    YellowPagesDiscussion">Yellow Pages</a>:
    Feel free to join in.

    <b>That would be the RecentChanges page in PyWiki, and again, it is a
    pull, rather than a push. Here is a link to give you an idea:</b><br>

    now, one other thing. The Synergy Central and Coach Universe servers
    are available to recraft the "formal" site as well. Anyone on this
    team will have access to the servers/files. We could use just
    PyWiki, however it might just make sense to tune the site to this
    project, as an example of what is possible. Thoughts?

    I left this last line in here to let the moderator know the tag needs
    to be updated. onelist was gone a while ago. I know I need to tune
    all of our discussion list messages, since the emergence of YGroups.

    I hope all of you are having the time of your lives, like I am!
