One last post for today, coming from another thing brought up in the meeting and my own questions..
Masha had a great idea that we all liked, perhaps making a VG "manifesto" that would lay out what our goals are for VG. It could be a public essay - portions of which would certainly end up on the front page of the site. Writing a collaborative essay in the coming weeks would be a great way to cohere our ideas about VG.
As a starting point, I've got a question: Practically, how are we writing "VG"? "VG", "V/G", "VG: Voices from the Gaps"? What does the change from "Voices from the Gaps" to "VG" mean theoretically?

If you're new to blogs, here's how it generally works. Main topics are posted as "Entries." There are put on the front page and serve as a way to keep discussion focused. (so this is an entry). Then each entry can be commented on.
On the righthand side of the main page are lists of the most recent Entries and Comments.
The engine that runs this blog is very much like the one I want to use as a backend for the VG site...
Just a test entry to get things moving.
