Well, a group of us met today by phone call. There are a few things I took away from today's meeting.

1) Please, if you want to blog here (even if you have your own blog and want to cross post from there), let me know. Email matthew at dogstar.org and let me know your NPSL username and who you are in the nonprofit commons. I'll set you up. The more bloggers we have, the better.
