Nice idea. Just some remarks:
  • One way for people to tell whether you think that the idea is important is by looking at how well you spellchecked it and how well used emphasis is (bold starts in the middle of a word?). I know I should be the last one to complain about these things but at least the title should be
  • Your point about travel is one side of medal: but this videomeeting thing has its downsides too: for instance it annoys co-workers, it is easier for some people to set aside time for traveling than to say "consider me unavailable for the next 2 hours" if it is nothing associated with a concrete project
But I don't want to come across as a party-pooper: the Workshop started with a posting and a text-list of participants (or so I'm told). So: start small and start with something concrete: round up some people you know (to have a critical mass), set a date, publish it, publish it again, do it, don't be frustrated if the first time around only two extra people turn up, during the date set up a followup-data, publish the results and try again (Rome wasn't destroyed in a day)

So: thumbs up for your initiative, good luck and be persistent

Hi, CFDkid,

Face to face meeting/discussions is always the best/productive way. But, traveling definitely is a big headache for me. So, this is a good alternative. Please send me an invite: phsieh2009@gmail.com

Thanks!

Could you give an overview of what happened it in the last hangout (because that might get people interested).

BTW: for setting up the date, have you considered http://doodle.com to vote (you supply a choice of timeslots, send the links to those who expressed interest - I wouldn't post it here on the messageboard)

Ah. And also: when announcing it use a date ("next monday" means that people will have to look up the date of the post)

phsieh2005 December 8, 2012 07:55

Yes, Bernhardt has a good point on the time and date. I am interested in join, but, it was held during working hours and I had to go to meetings. I am wondering if it is possible to have it during weekends. But, it is a good idea to have a vote on the time and let people express their interest if they can join.

Hello Members,

Thank you for your view points.

After success of first meet, we plan to conduct second meet with members who could not join us last time, with same agenda.
As google+ allows maximum 10 members. We can discritize the meet in two meets.

Its our passion for openFOAM that keeps us driving.

Please post suitable time for meet, on working day ? (It will not be possible to work weekend. sorry)
Date will be decided after time is decided, use GMT unit as members are from all over world. We will try best to include maximum members.

(it will take time to converge this type of online meet, so be patience)


All times are GMT -4. The time now is 00:57.
