You may or may not have found yourself sitting on the porch on a beautiful summery/fallsy day like today, and asked yourself "How can I help out that nice Wis.Community site?" Well, maybe not, but the fact of the matter is that I'm going to tell you anyway.

The Chippewa Valley Tweetstorm

August 28, 2018

It's been there for a while, but I thought I would point out the Chippewa Valley Tweetstorm on the front page at https://www.wis.community. It brings together the tweets of lots of people in the Chippewa Valley and across Wisconsin.  Go take a look!

I have a pile of possible projects for the site in the hopper.  I'd like to ask our readers what you think should be a priority.  They're all feasible.  Some of the require the kindness of strangers. Let me know what you think:  If you have other ideas, log in to the site and leave a comment.

In preparation for tonight's Planning Meeting, I've put together a slideshow about some of the goals for this site, where we've been and where I hope we are going. I'm putting up a copy of the slide show to give you some idea of what the first half of tonight's meeting will be like and  what the current plans are.  We're hoping that members of the community will show up tonight and give us their ideas. We will be meeting at 6:30 at Lazy Monk Brewery in Eau Claire.

Come join us for a meeting to plan the next steps for Wis.Community. The platform is up and has been functioning for some time, but I want to know what can be done to make this more useful to communities throughout the state.  Bring your ideas, suggestions, questions, and complaints. In this time of fake news, political polarization, and silos of community members who are not talking to each other, Wis.Community could help to bridge gaps between different groups and communities.

What We're Reading

We're working on incorporating a few more collaborative tools into the site. One has appeared on the front page this afternoon.  There is a "what we're reading" section on the front page. This is a test at setting up ways for people to contribute more content.  We will be inviting some of our editors and contributors to mark articles on the web that they have found interesting, and to contribute them into our team collection of interesting stories.

Nick Offerman On The Film "Look & See"

January 8, 2018

We are sponsoring our first Wis.Community community film showing. We hope to do more of these in the coming months - films that enlighten and entertain, and that will not show in local theaters otherwise.

LOOK & SEE is a cinematic portrait of farmer and writer Wendell Berry. Through his eyes, we see both the changing landscapes of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture and the redemptive beauty in taking the unworn path.
