IMHO, try to make sure that each group or sub-group has enough members to make it a viable group on any web presence that gets created. Better to start with one or more overcrowded groups that need to split up than have a bunch of "empty rooms" in a web presence.

I've updated the People of Color Working Group page. But I was looking through my emails, it appears that a Julian ( emailed here) is also forming a POC group.

So is there a way you can introduce yourselves and see how you want to be represented, either as one group or as 2 different POC groups. If you decide on 2 different POC groups, you might want to consider points of distinction so people are not confused. Preferably a neutral distinction, like meeting times, etc.

Anyhow I leave it to you, let me know what you think.

   Hi Hanalei,
   I've just created the POC Working Group page.


   Please send me the info:

   meeting times/locations
   discussion list info


   Also I'm not sure if Calendar events are being added by a few people
   or all the groups? Can someone on this list answer that? I noticed
   LaurenD and mbralow adding most events.

       Hi POC!
       I'm a POC as well and am glad you all are working on this. We
       need to
       get more POC folks down here in a big way. I'm copying this
       email to the
       the Internet Working Group. I believe they are in the process of
       re-organizing the website so I'm not sure how soon your info
       will go up.
       Please make sure that you keep the info desks up to date with
       you are planning and doing.

           Hello, Info Desk!

           The POC Working group is new and we've just registered for
       the blog
           and haven't yet received the requested password to post our
           to the Google calendar. We'd also like to post our working
       "about" page, including some contacts. What is the process in order
           to get this done?

           We'd appreciate any guidance you can provide in expediting
       this process!
