Dear ProZ.com staff,

Yesterday I came up with an idea of establishing a closer knit network of ProZians (http://www.proz.com/?sp=bb/viewtopic&topic_id=8751&forum_id=44), by way of travelling to each others\'s places, thus organising \"micro-powwows\" of 2 or 3 people involved.

The idea gathered some support in the community (what a great feeling and honour to be part of a community rather than a database).

While a searchable interactive map of ProZ members could be a useful and fun addition to the site, I understand it may require some sizeable programming effort for a non-core feature. A much more feasible first step would be setting up a dedicated forum, e.g. \"ProZ.com Networking\" - this could be filed under \"Special\" or \"ProZ.com\".

OK, we will do it. Feb 21, 2003

Good idea, Csaba. It was actually presented, and agreed to by consensus, once before.



We intend to do it over the next few weeks, with a bit of attention paid to allow people to have full control of information they might want to keep private. Thanks.

Thank you, Henry, for taking care of this. Sorry, I was not aware that a similar idea has already been proposed.
