Today I’m excited to announce the silliest idea here yet…
Once a month, we’ll gather in a Zoom call for random, unstructured, socializing. The call will not be recorded freeing us to be a little more lively and relaxed.
At the same time, everyone on the call will be invited to co-edit a Google Doc, in real time.
Everyone can speak, listen and “instant message” in the Doc. When the call ends, I will copy the contents of the document into a new Topic that will appear in #campfires
I have put up a lengthy post on my blog, Campfire, marshmallows and conversation which explains the origin story.
A while ago, the Movers Mindset team did this and had a lot of fun. You can see the results in, the Movers Mindset Campfire topics.
What happens is you get an enjoyable social experience in the call, and we come away with a document that is interesting for others to read after the fact. In the document, for example, we can share images, links, etc.
We’ll have a Zoom call, and I’ll put the click-to-edit link to the Google Doc in the chat within the call. Don’t worry—just show up and ask questions
At the end of the call, I’ll copy-and-paste into a new topic.
