Re: [atheists-55] For those of you who missed it...

Here's a motion from the floor -

There seems to be enough interest to proceed with some sort of
planning session to hone the objectives of which I see several:

  1. Establish a public television show which seeks to a) disseminate
rational information about Atheism and b)  open a rapport via debate
with local believers in presumably any metaphysical school of thought.

2. Establish a podcast (format/content/sche­dules) to a) disseminate
rational information about Atheism and b) advertises the public
television broadcast.

3. Establish "youth outreach activities" presumably to disseminate the
same information.

Each of these items are time/labor/technolog­y intensive. They'll also
presumably have associated monetary costs which volunteerism alone
would not meet.

We'd need to brainstorm a bit to hone the spectacular vision to
something manageable and self sustaining in  terms of interest and
costs. Can we set a time/place (physical or on the net) to brainstorm
these ideas and set a course?
