Hi, I'm a teacher and TESL materials writer (mostly on-line), and I'm especially interested in how we move towards a religion-free morality. Religion has been so huge that it is hard for many people to think of morals without religion. We need to.
I think it's a great idea, and I also think you could charge something for your own time and effort, as some Meetups do. I don't know how much the room costs, but if you accepted 30 people, charged us (say) a fiver or even a tenner each, would that cover the room and leave something over for the organizers? On the whole I think events work better when they pay for themselves, and that includes the time of the organizers. You're not going to get rich! Thank you for your efforts. Nick Shepherd
Hi Nick & welcome to LAAG where you will find a good mix of thought about religion & atheism, community of like (but not identical) minded people and quite a lot of foolery.
Hi Nick, it was great meeting you too. Yes come along once you finish. See you soon.
Not really "solved" but improved in terms of collaboration possibilities.
From my point of view (as I am also trying to solve similar problems, as you do) just video has the same problems as normal TV - it is not interactive. And even more - it is less valuable for learning because there is no live interaction between humans (though there is an advantage in terms of distances and availabilities of information). I thing it could be solved with screen-sharing and clouding.
Hi Nick, to give a short answer on your question about technology. From my point of view interaction with device is different from human interaction in two ways. 1. Technology is a good motivator (as it is smth new) 2. Technology offers new possibilities, you can do smth which is not possible to do with a book.
Hola Nick, bienvenido a All things Mexico
I think you have a very interesting point, I am also interested in the similarities and differences between England and Mexico, maybe we can plan a future meet up for September under that topic, what do you think? do you want to help me organise it?
