I see what you mean, but I feel like he whole movement is becoming very unpredictable, as group can change at any point.

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

    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 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
                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
        "about" page, including some contacts. What is the process in order
                    to get this done?

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