    boundaries and rules those groups want spelled out. Presenting that at 
    a central meeting like Twelfth night sounds doable. I can conduct 
    polling at Weisenfeuer's Yule Revel.

    encouraging further use of this list among my fellows.


  Thanks, Finnacan. I, too, like the idea of using all available venues to discuss this. And I like the idea that questions and answers voiced here are archived for later perusal by us, or anyone who wasn't here at the time. And I'd like to see the minutes of any "live" meetings posted here and on the bard.ansteorra.org, for the same reasons.

  But personally, I think we've still got the cart before the horse. We're talking about the mechanics of how a college should be structured, when we don't yet have a clear definition of what a college should do.

  Earlier today, I wrote:

    We've asked several times (in effect) "What do you mean by 'a  
    college'? What will it do for us, exactly, that we aren't doing or  
    couldn't do for ourselves?"

  I'd still like to see a reply to that question from Robin before taking another step towards discussion of a college's structure. Let's please define "function" before we spend any more time talking about "form". Otherwise we're just spinning our wheels.
