An Update on PauseTalk

The next edition of PauseTalk is coming up (April 2), and I wanted to update everyone on things.

First of all, the 8mm Film Project. For those who didn’t attend the last edition, it’s been decided that coordinating everything is going to be done outside of the meetups, since waiting once a month to do this just won’t work. The idea is that all the PauseTalk creative projects will be coordinated online between the meetups, with the gatherings serving as general updates (with the rest of the time devoted to the usual discussion and networking).

The PauseTalk network on Ning is the best place to coordinate things, so I welcome you to create a profile there and contribute to the threads (you should also join the mailing list). Right now there are 3 cameras at the cafe, waiting to be used, and plenty of film. If someone wants to drop by and pick one up and buy a film (1500 yen), just let me or Denis know. You can find out more about the features of each camera, as well as the film, on this page at the PauseTalk wiki.

Also, I suggest we start discussing the PDF Magazine Project on the PauseTalk network as well. The first thing would be to come up with a theme for the first issue, so that people can start sending in contributions. I look forward to hearing what everyone thinks.

Lastly, I would love to get some ideas for a main topic for next week’s edition of PauseTalk. I think the past few gatherings have just been about updates on the various projects and scattered discussions, but I’d like to do a theme again, like we did in the early days (share images on a common topic, etc.)
