You may have noticed when you signed up for the mailing list for Transition Town the email was “firstname.lastname@example.org”. There was a reason for that “prelim” because we weren’t sure how this would all shake out.
Myron asked at the last meeting if people could sign up themselves for the email list. I said “not yet” (I think 🙂 ). But now, you can.
I’ve created a public Google Group for Transition Towns Port Alberni that will allow new people to sign up themselves and invite others too. So you don’t have to find Dan if you have found a new person that would like to be part of the list. It will also give public access to all of the emails that are on the list so that people can see the discussions going on and join in, through email, or the web, if they like.
The webpage for the Transition Town Port Alberni Group is: http://groups.google.ca/group/patransitions
Go there and sign up if you haven’t already. I’ll put a Permanent Link to it on this website shortly.
So this all means, the current list will soon go away. All new folks should sign up on the Google hosted list.
Once Dan and I are sure that all of the original list members are signed up for the Google list then we’ll shut the old list down and continue on our merry way.
Onward and Upward!
