I would be interested in producing a 4 page newsletter about Linux and FOSS..
This would be something that can be left in car repair waiting rooms, coffee shops etc.

is something to be enthusiastic about.

Let me try approaching some of the recent list threads from a different direction.

There are things I would be interested in seeing happen.

They are things that are too big for me to do on my own as an individual.

They are things that don't require the entirety of kwlug.

There seems to be no middle ground. There is no mechanism to group a subset of the entire group around a common effort. er, kwlug contains a group of likely interested individuals, some of whom might be interested in collaborating in the accomplishment of a <thunk>.

The <thunk>, in essence, would be accomplished in the name of, or under the auspices of, kwlug.

What might people like to see happen, under the auspices of kwlug?

Some examples might be, but I'm far more interested in what individuals might be interested in doing:

- installfest
- launch party
- workshops
- how to host a meeting
- how to present
- since multiple rooms at 1st are available, splitting the latter half of a meeting into two parts between (advanced) presentation topic and <thunk>
- community project (do a website for a charitable organization?)
- community project (a la FOSS / with a [subversion?] repository) - contribute code somewhere or to something.
- I have no idea, I'm making this list up to solicit your ideas & thoughts.

It seems to me there is no mechanism or facilities to gather interested members of kwlug into a smaller collaborative effort.

What would it take to create a kwlug egroupware site, or something, to promote such collaborations?

More importantly - what might people like to collaborate on?
