So I’ve been blessed to be part of an amazing collective of some of the most talented people in Long Island, NY (@LITweetUP) for the past 2 years or so. One of the things that has made that experience amazing is that we do things, as oppossed to just talking about them all the time. In fact, the most amazing things we’ve done together so far, most people would’ve said we shouldn’t have tried. Shouldn’t have tried for a lot of reasons (distributed team, no command and control, etc) but the one that comes to mind right now is this:
we never had enough time.
Why bring this up? Because I read about something yesterday that could really help our community, if only we could put some legs behind it, and then I dismissed it because we have no time to get it done. I just realized that was stupid, better to try something and improve on it next time, than to do nothing at all.
So here’s the deal:
That’s it, that’s all I’m giving you for now. Wanna find out more, reply in the comments, shoot me a tweet (@namnum) or call me at 516-882-7712. I’ll be releasing all the details this weekend to those who ask.
If there’s enough interest, we’ll do it, if not, I’ll do it myself in a smaller way and then we’ll do it again & bigger next year, when there’s more time.
But come on, do we really need more time?
