Cowart's Common Room
World Wide Web

Did you know that yesterday the 13th November was the 18th Birthday of the World Wide Web . . . or so Steve Wright said on Radio Two - or rather it was the launch of www . . .

Perhaps we should have a 'did you know' post every day - anyone want to volunteer - or if daily is too much we can do it weekly?

Also no-one is currently doing a thought for the day, or thought for the week at the moment . . .any volunteers?

LBD Very Happy how about it then will you do us a weekly, or monthly Horoscope?

Any other ideas . . .

Fennie's Avatar I'd be willing to help. I'm a mine of useless information. Not sure I could commit to everyday though. But could we share?

As for other ideas: this may sound odd and may need thinking about but I am conscious that there are far more Cooers that I don't know than those I do. Although I am sure there are many whose circle extends far wider than mine I am wondering whether a system of randomly allocating 'buddies' for a week at at time might work - say everyone got two or three 'buddies' - to whom you would then try to be especially caring - telling them perhaps a little about yourself, maybe sending them a present, writing to them privately, exchanging photos. Just for a week or so and only now and again. If it sounds too much like a Scandinavian infants school, then I'll drop the idea and return to the useless information.

Camilla's Avatar Brilliant idea Westerwitch,

I thought about the theme a few weeks ago about 'did you know' and thought, mmm,that would be a good idea,

I love the idea too of thought for the day or for the week.

Would love to do but fear I would not be able to keep up, as I adore doing the birthday posts, and owl posts.

Westerwitch's Avatar Fennie - we could chat about this next week. Camilla thank you, you already do so much and I am sure there are other people wanting to help. I will keep putting up the ideas post . . .

Westerwitch's Avatar PS I also have some new idea for the Forum so will be 'floating' those at some point as well.
