A Few Good Ideas

A couple of weeks back there was a discussion on RunnersRoundTable about . . . RunnersRoundTable. The program, closing in on its 100th episode, is looking to enlarge its fan base and its contributor base.

After nearly two years of being administered by Lady H, the RRT is now a true community-effort. If you look to the right, you'll see a reference to RRT's new GoogleGroup. It is the headquarters for all things RRT. It's self-help:
  • You get an idea, old, new, borrowed, blue;
  • You get input from other group members;
  • You schedule a show in an open week;
  • You get your panel;
  • You act as the show's Timekeeper (a simple task).
The GoogleGroup page makes this simplicity itself. This is a community effort, from start to finish. We want, indeed need, everyone's input. Shows and topics people like. Shows and topics they don't.

Things may be a bit bumpy in this transition period as we all get accustomed to the new system, so bear with us. Better still, if you see an open week, grab it. And run with it.

Yes, there's always room for you at the Table. Now we're asking you to bring a chair.
