First up, mingling. Between 10 and 10:30 I encourage everyone to stand up and walk around and mingle with everyone. It’s a great time. This month I set up a computer with Skype and we mingled with Toronto Media Makers. It was fun.

I kicked off the meeting my having John Herman continue my explanation of why I started the group, then Len Edgerly continued, and onto Joe Cascio and continuing with Leslie Poston. I should have videoed it.

But I did video a roll call of everyone who was there. I streamed it live via Qik. Here’s the archive that was automatically sent over to YouTube.

    I ID’ed myself at today’s meeting with my non-political blog. That seemed to surprise Steve and others. It is Harrumph! at

    Also, at the meeting I mentioned doing a blogging basics (commenting and diaries well as starting one) at the Mass. Dem. convention in Springfield the first weekend of June. It’s primarily for delegates who have never joined the online political discussions. Anyone going who would like to participate should contact me.

    Thanks once again, Steve, for organizing these monthly events!

    If you or other attendees missed the Gov 2.0 radio show I mentioned where I was talking about social media metrics, you can catch the archive playback at

    Great meeting, Steve. I have one photo, not as good as yours:

  4. Joe Cascio says:

    Great photos, Steve! So glad I got my butt out of bed this morning and made the drive to Boston. And thanks for the tip to Len about sharing the wireless internet on his Mac. I was able to jump on it and get really good service while I was there.
