Let's strike while the iron's hot - how about Friday (21st) morning? How about 8:00 AM? I'm OK with an earlier or later time.
Here's a vision of what we could build: http://queenstreetcommons.org/
Check out this link and we can discuss the possibilities on Friday.

Almost always up for a cup... except this week, when I've got other commitments on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. How about Friday?

You know, I never managed to get out to one of these. Why not try it again?

Harold: mornings work best for me as well. Any day other than Thursday will do.

Peter & anyone else who may read this: We haven't had a morning coffee since March 2004, so maybe it's time to try again.

Let's see who is interested and available and find a suitable date. Mornings worked best originally. Pass on this website to anyone else in the area and we can re-start the conversation.

All of my contact information is available at http://www.jarche.com/contact

Harold: thank you for introducing me to SOHO. It is exciting to see a group of small business people gathering together like this. As a member of the Board of the Sackville Chamber of Commerce I am on a subcommittee focussed on downtown revitalization and the topic of bringing new business to Sackville continuously comes up. I have come to the realization that it is not the larger manufacturers nor even the smaller retail operations that necessarily would do well here but more like this group- smaller, home service based professionals who are living in Sackville not because there is a huge clientele base here but because of the lifestyle. It is interesting to see how many independent marketing professionals there are in town as an example. The question then is: how do we attract more of these SOHO's to come and live here?
I recently moved back to Sackville after being away for over 10 years. We came back to raise our children here and to be closer to our family. In coming back, I had to make a decision on what to do for a living. In researching various business opportunities and job postings I decided on becoming a personal financial planner partly because it allowed me to live in Sackville even though my clientele may not necessarily be here. Because I am an independent agent, my hours are flexible allowing quality time with my family on our schedule and not some corporate guidelines. I don't have to worry about inventory or employees as it is just me - and my clients! The Sackville SOHO Society sounds like an interesting society to belong to. I am interested to find out when your next morning coffee is going to be.

Interesting - possibly the largest Venn diagram of any sort that I've witnessed.

This "Lawrence-welk floating bubbles" style of presenting information would be appropriate for representing our disparate and overlapping skills. Maybe with some Lawrence Welk-style music seeping from our soapy computers.

By the way, the Boston Edward Tufte lecture was OK - overall, I'd advise simply buying the three main texts (Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Envisioning Information, Visual Explanations) and the "Cognitive Style of Powerpoint" monograph ($7 USD - a bargain)

Could this be a possible depiction of the areas of interest of the Society?

Just found this great website concerned with similar issues. It's called Sohodojo, Home of the nanocorp and small business revolutionaries, which is an Applied R&D Lab Serving Solo and Family-based Entrepreneurs in Rural and Distressed Urban Communities. http://sohodojo.com/

I'm OK for the 11th, so let's make it official. Same time, same place.

I'm posting this here, instead of sending an e-mail, which means that only the two subscribers to this board (of which I'm one) will get the message. Anyway, I won't be in town for the first Wednesday of the month, so call or e-mail, or post to this board, for an alternate date.

The Society meets on Wednesday, January 7th, for the first time in 2004. Coffee starts to drip at the Bridge Street Cafe at 7:30 AM.
