So, as I hear it, we who are bards should gather in a group with others who are interested,  This could be informally after populous or during fighter practice or more formally at a called meeting and talk over what we are reading  with our fellows. Hopefully two or more of the bards at a meeting will be on the newslist and can relay some of the issues and thoughts from more than one perspective.  This will take some time but may create interest so that bards will know and find some way to send or bring thier ideas to the larger meetings at events.

So, I guess that means either culling thorugh the discussion to carry a list of discussion points to a meeting.  or just trusting my memory and hoping someone else will bring in what I missed.
