View Full Version : A start ...

I came across this forum a couple of days back and decided to do start on what I can do best. I may be somewhat naive in my thinking, but it is better to take initiative and make mistakes instead of waiting. Please do give your honest feedback and opinion.

Forums are designed for discussion, however we need to also focus on implementation. For that, we need to put the right communication tools in place to disseminate information, such as wikis, egroups, and calendars.

We need a somewhat structured organization of ideas, discussions, questions, projects and other things.This will allow us to handle more people gracefully (scale), allow people who have volunteered time to work on projects, allow discussions for those who want to discuss.

I have gone ahead and done the following (I do not intend to step on anyone's toes) :

1. Registered immigrationvoice.net and used Google Apps to provide email, calendar, and docs services.
2. Installed a wiki at http://ivwiki.com
3. Google groups for NJ IV: http://groups.google.com/group/njiv

I am in the NJ area (Edison) and would like to host a meeting this weekend (or the next) to exchange ideas and come up with some concrete (next) steps to take. I have space to host up to 20 people. If you are in NJ, we should talk. Please contact me via email: inc.idler@gmail.com or join the NJ IV group at http://groups.google.com/group/njiv and respond to my post.
