Hello good folks! As Director of Communications at the World Cafe Community Foundation, I designed this space and am one of your hosts here.

This is a self-directing community and there are many others who are also caring for us - but if you need anything, or have any questions, if you are being disturbed by anyone here or notice something we should be aware of, please contact me. Thanks! I hope you enjoy yourself here and learn and share lots.

If you want a bit more information about my work with the World Cafe, here's a short WC bio.

I am sad to see this site go away. But, wait. Why not preserve its contents in

Fortunately, my largest post has been preserved in the archive and I have changed the URL of this post I used in my other posts elsewhere to 

I think this site is worth preserving. It is the history of a community. Why erasing it? In the future, those who would like to study its history will be left with only digital fragments. Consider saving the whole site in

Thanks Amy,

Good to see you again! Finally made it to getting on board (well, catching up and re-focusing). I am playing around in the space, exploring of sorts. Editing my profile -my auto-fill feature keeps filling in everything and the kitchen sink! I think I've got it edited down to just my name and photo now.

Looking forward to learning and sharing while staying focused on research :-)

I have an idea dancing in my brain - trying to create an assignment that pulls students into the WC community (grad and doc students). Hmmm ... ideas?

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving~

Hello Amy,

I am very excited about joining a Community Table and learning more. I will also be more than willing to contribute to continue the amazing ork that covers the Globe with hope and vision.

Sending all of the good vibes your way.

Thank you Amy.  I am still very much in the learning phase of World cafe but have been working on a global tech cooperative that works together to create solutions.  Once introduced to the world cafe the pieces fell into place.  I am going to figure out how to host real world cafes to let the group organically decide what we want to create together (after spending 3 years creating exactly what I wanted, now letting it go to allow the group to create something better).  I have contacted Wedialougue as you all appear to be the leader in the online world cafe space and would love to learn what advice you could offer.  So happy to be hear to share and learn.
