For the online meeting, we plan to use Gmail chat. We'd like to test this and see how it works for us, and if all goes well, we can make this the general format for a monthly online meeting. (And we'll be sure to provide more advanced notice of online meetings in the future.)
If you are interested in joining us for this online meeting, please do the following:
- If you don't have a Gmail account, go to gmail.com and click "create an account." Fill out this page to create your account. (If you have a Gmail account already, skip this.)
- Write to email@example.com and provide us with your Gmail name.
We'll be sure to send you a chat invite and everything you need to know. Gmail is free and you won't be required to download any program to participate -- everything appears in your web browser. We decided that this might be the easiest route for us all to connect.
If you'd like to participate but don't have access to a computer, don't feel comfortable with Gmail, or would rather not type, etc., please let us know. At least one of us will be at Ohio State with a laptop during the meeting, and we can arrange to meet and/or double up on computers.
Finally, please forward this to those who you think might be interested. And if you have questions, let us know. :)
