A "virtual place" for gathering people around New England to discuss issues that are of public concern. People who join should be capable of discussing ideas in a respectful way, but also in a relatively clear way, or otherwise be able to form good questions. People who love conversations about culture and politics should join too.
Who knows, maybe it will be successful enough to warrant the purchase (rent) of an actual historic building to use as the meeting space when "things go back to normal" (will it go back to normal? That's something we can discuss in the Virtual Meeting House.)
