Recently, whispers of Fire the Grid began to arise again. Then an announcement that this last weekend, the new web site would go live.
Shelley wrote a letter explaining why she dropped off the map and the site wasn’t updated after the very successful event. Here’s a video version:
The original video with Shelley’s explanation was pulled.
Bradfield has made a new one though:
Also, here is a slide show about it:
It’s worth mentioning that all of the site updates have been done by one guy in about a month, so there’s some glitches. They don’t accept donations, so it’s just the 3 2 of them doing it gratis.
The site now has a massive Testimonials section (use the map at the top) from the first event.
They’ve posted a half dozen videos where she explains why Brazil, what it’s about (raising consciousness), how and why they’re counting us, and so on. While some of the language she uses is a little different, I’m surprised by the depth of the message. It’s quite a bit more mature than the first events.
The videos are downloadable Quicktime .MOV files. Not sure why they didn’t use an external service to host them and reduce their traffic.
There’s lots of other background across the site as well. You’ll find FAQs interesting.
FTG II: July 28, 2009 3:19pm Pacific time. (a Tuesday) A little easier than 4 in the morning as last time 😉
Oh, and there’s a third FTG to follow.
What would make this round superior was if there was a central communications hub for group leaders who could then coordinate local events. Individuals could find their group there. There was some of that last time. But even with a few groups merging into one event here, there was another just across the bay, the 2 unknown to each other.
They’re asking everyone who played a role gathering people last time to do so again. Share your Joy.
Oneness is inclusive and arises in togetherness.
