Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I'm chairing my first meeting this evening

It's weird that I'm feeling the least bit skittish. I've chaired so many different conferences and con discussions and, and, and. This just feels different. More important. Not me being more important because it's not about me, just important. New people who really need to hear the right things will be there and somehow I think I might screw it up. Even as I'm writing it, it sounds silly. Sounds like hamster wheeling. I think I'm going to play bejeweled. The script is there, I will be there. God, as I understand her, will be there. Worry, needs to take a walk.

3. Well, it was an online meeting

And I had a lot of lines that needed to be cut and pasted and I went splat. And then, one of the old timers picked up the pieces until I reconsolidated. In other words, no one died and a good meeting was had by all.

And I learned a lot and am going to do it again. It will probably go better next time.

2. I'm sure you did fine.

I was a wreck before I chaired my, but it was OK.

Good you're doing service work.
