I would hate for the desire having 'my group' detract from the OWS momentum- as all 'my groups' are part of the 99%. If we fraction ourselves too thin, we'll be vulnerable to losing our strength as a whole if certain groups start setting and getting demands. The webpage will be a major tool in helping or hurting us in this way.

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

   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!
