If it's not something that has a set or pre-defined day or time for participation, I'd be interested in learning and discussing as well LP.
Ron, if Brian moves forward with this, do you think the discussions should be in an existing discussion forum, or would it be possible to create a new area just for this purpose? That may help to keep it a bit more structured and easier to follow along for those who wish to participate. It would also create an interesting archive for others to browse through on past discussions.
If I understand Brian's idea, it could work similarly to Nan's poetry workshop, where a current discussion or thread is "open", but past thread(s) from the month before (or the poem discussed before), become locked so as not to lose focus on the current or new topic and poem at hand?
I love the idea Brian, and I think you'd do well to take charge of it.
