The second focal date for #tomereaders is approaching and that means that we will have our second face to face meeting under the tulip tree. I was chatting with Greg Zobel the other day and he was like “you do #tomereaders face to face as well?”
Yep – that is actually how the whole thing started – I have been facilitating these book groups for several years now face to face. They are not always books – they have been chapters, they have been MOOCs… but the idea is just let’s get together and talk about some of these influences.
Most of the people participating face to face this year are not participating online in any way. This is often par for the course and that is okay. I actually think that it brings a really interesting perspective.
During the last face to face meeting Matt had this awesome idea – he said why don’t we live tweet the face to face meeting. It was brilliant! The only problem was that he thought of it like a day before the meeting and we did not get a lot of online participation. So we are going to try again.
Live tweet of the #tomereaders face to face “Under the Tree” conversation around part 2 of the book Thursday, July 2nd – 11am EDT. Please tune in tweet questions and feedback to our live face to face group.
