Similar Circles is the philosophy.
Similar Circles: Tea & Networking is the face to face quarterly event. Obviously limited by geography.
Similar Circles: Tea & Blogging is what I do 2 - 3 times a week.
Similar Circles: Tea & Discussion is the next iteration possibility. (and I would dearly love your comments and concepts on this one)
Tea & Discussion could be podcasts, webinars, face to face groups with teleconferencing, discussion boards... The technology is there to allow us to connect.
I want to play... anyone care to join me?
