Hi, yes, I did send a bunch of inquiries via PM to people, about a baker’s dozen or so. Bill, my überlackey, had asked for the first five who replied. Some folks only wanted to write, others were game for calls. I had given people the option for calls because it gets more nuance.
@Bing, you were actually one of them. About half I wrote to didn’t reply at all, so I figured folks weren’t interested. This kind of concerns me, because I have to wonder if this means there’s a PM problem.
Basically the point was we are trying to imagine ways to expand the community and the topics we cover, and part of that was to find what you do like about being here. It wasn’t supposed to be secret or elitist, and I’m still willing to talk to anybody.
Happy new year, all.
