"Well, in joining such elite musicians, I'm not really in the correct league - perhaps more Conference than Premier, but I played up to 6 times per week for evangelical churches for about 20 years, and played frequently in less salubrious…"
The Music Industry & Music Education Group The RSA’s way of working consists of providing platforms for critical debate and new ideas; working with partners to translate knowledge and progressive thinking into practical change.

I am in an ongoing discussion with Don about this subject... and I feel your pain. I have taken to private discussion on this subject - with a handful of others - as I feel that the public discussion AT THIS STAGE is counterproductive in that…"
"John I believe you know Don so he has probably filled you in on the VCH story but just in case, and at the risk of being accused of looking backwards, it would be great for someone who knows what they are doing (I don't) to leapfrog this…"
"Thanks John - very helpful. Focus on 3.
Others in DE can help (I'm a returner) but I sense that currently DE is mainly positioned as *advising* RSA staff on some or all or 2 and 3 - rather than setting anything up, or facilitating.
"David, I disagree. I'm only concerned (at the moment) with 3 and 4 - but especially 3. Until FRSAs can get these issues resolved I think going to the outside world is ambitious.
I have to believe that 1 and 2 are taken care of - and if not then…"

You are, of course, absolutely right. A lot of effort has been spent on trying to achieve that clarity over the…"
""RSA Fellows, we have a problem!"
Further investigation has surfaced the fact that RSA Fellows are using just about every social tool know to (wo)man.

Fact is that out of 27,000 Fellows, most don't feel that they have unmet needs in this area. They are content. Many…"
"John - maybe this Ning, plus Linkedin, and Twitter are the Birds of a Feather gatherings of Fellows in various blogs, forums, groups, threads ... with some RSS-fed bulletins from other RSA events, publications and projects which are the big show.…"
>>On that basis, if I wanted to announce some project of interest that I thought other Fellows might wish to be involved with I can make my own arrangements for communication and collaboration tools - [this is not an endorsement] I…"
"David, I find that a very useful analogy, although it does seem at odds with the perceptions and voice of the issues that I have gleaned from these discussions over the last couple of weeks. The implication I had read into the discussions was that…"
"Perhaps the difficulty here is that RSA is (at least) two different organisations: staff and Fellows. Think two different events in adjacent spaces. One is a well organised conference with presentations and facilitated workshops. The other is more…"
