Hi Sean and the Permbank Team,

Thank you for pulling me in on this.
I've had to come to terms with the realities of my available bandwidth (family guy with full-time job).
Much as I'd like to work on the Permabank, which is an awesome project, I'm going to concentrate my efforts on the Think Tank group as I believe I may be able to make the most contribution there.

As for the Google Group not displaying my posts its not a big deal as I am moving my attention over to the new site that rolled out this morning, so will probably just phase out my use of Google for this.

If someone with permissions wouldn't mind, I did make a post yesterday to Sam here:
I took a bit of time to word my post and I would like it forwarded back to me if someone can dig it up as I did not have it saved.
My browser reported that the post was successful so my sense is that the post got stored, but is just not showing.
I would much appreciate it if one of the group owners would look for all posts to the iwg by sundog and send me that one.

Keep me in your loops though because all of your efforts inspire me and give me lots of hope and optimism for the future.
Thanks for everything you're all doing.

All best,

- Jim Yanda (sundog)

I am CC'ing this to Jim Yalta as well, who is a Drupal guy that seems to be having trouble for some reason with his subscription to the Internet Working Group.  His email address is, and he has been volunteering to get involved with Drupal stuff for the past week and should really be tapped as a resource if you're coding this in Drupal.

Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool

Good Day All!

So, it looks like the Permabank team is finally coming together!  This is what I have so far:

Product Managers: Evan Wagner (me), Devin Balkind
Project Manager: Dana Skallman
UX Designer: Marc Schaffner-Gurney
Visual Designer: Keka Marzagao
Developers: Matthew Slater (Back-end- C-forge adaptation), Matthew Lepacek (Back/Front End), Dan Rassi (Front-end), Chaz Cheadle (Back-end), Marc Pruce (Front-end)
Server Coordination: Tom Gillis

The plan is to use Better Means as the PM software and git hub as the code repository, which Dana will be setting up today in coordination with Tom.

We are building this in Drupal, in case its not already clear.  Anybody else who can jump on to help, please let us know.

For all who can be there in person, let's meet at Charlotte's Place tomorrow (Thurs) at 1:00PM for a kick-off meeting.  All who can, please confirm that the time works.  For those who can't, please respond with outline of specific availability so Dana can reach out to coordinate tasks...

Forget Wall Street, let's make our own bank!!
