Hydra, the Co-Op

I joined the co-op yesterday and I was immediately inundated with emails.  I rarely get email.  Whisk is the emailer.  She gets about fifty to my one.  After sifting through them I think the name they decided on was Hydra.  Good name.  It fits.  It goes along with what I think this group is going to be about.  From the introductions we have a diverse group of folks who all bring a lot of talent to the pool so if we can somehow organize and manage correctly I think some good things will come of it.

Projects are being discussed.  Philosophy and direction of the group are being discussed.  And what services we are providing are being discussed.  I won't get into all the legal crap because I don't know a damn thing about it.  All I want it to help some folks out if I can and get some help at times.  I do have a solid group of people around me now, but it never hurts to diversify and keep options open.

I haven't said much to the group.  I am more of lurker at this time.  But will offer my ideas when I have one worth saying.  Right now I am just trying to figure out the group, the personalities within, expectations and how much time I can invest into it. Should be fun.


  1. Hey, I'm in Hydra (I feel like a super villain with that name). Don't know if you knew there is a Forum now.

  2. I'm hoping that the forum will take the 'listserv' pressure off of everyone's inbox.

    So far, I'm very pleased at the response and thrilled that we have so many UK-based people on board.

  3. It's certainly a good kind of problem to have when starting out. In all honesty, I thought we'd have about a third of the amount of people interested--and an equal level of energy.

    Pleased to see that people are running with the idea.
