Thanks Mikey,

I really wanted to participate but finally could not make it, so all of this is very useful and I will be reading and listening to the recordings and offering feedback to help improve the pilot.

Not so long ago I was a newcomer at a gnso working group so I hope to be able to offer insights from a personal experience viewpoint.

Also, I know other people that intended to participate and will ask for their feedback and share if it is valuable.

Congratulatios to all who organized this!

hi all,

i built a little web page on our site to introduce links to small, bite-sized pieces of the newcomer open house pilot that took place yesterday.  it met with good reaction from the people who participated, but it was a pilot and we're looking for ideas on how to improve it.  the whole thing is about an hour, but it's broken into small pieces so that people can select what they'd like to look at.  

thanks to Nathalie Perigrine for coming up with and driving the idea.  and Marika, Lars and Glen for making it happen.  i was/am honored to have been asked to be the presenter.


here's a link to the page (good for sharing with friends and colleagues)


and here's the content on that page (as long as i have your attention)
