A noble project, James. Thanks for mentioning the other Utne sites.
Seem like good places to hang out.
We better take this over to "The Mentoring Room." I'm surprised Doug
or Ben hasn't been in here to shoo us out after the pleasantries.
They're the local bouncers who enforce topic boundaries.
Oops, been busy boy. Welcome, James, and, yes, shoo shoo, see you in
the Mentoring Room.

James, working professionally in the field of documentary is our
basic criterion for the d-word community. the public forum is open to
all, but it's not really geared for the usual utne back and forth.
"the public forum is open to all, but it's not really geared for the

What is it geared for? I don't see a lot of recent activity.
It is what people make of it, James. I've spread the D-Word gospel
as have others, but we don't force people to join. Part of the lack
of posts, too, is that the "mentors" who answer are often
overwhelmed with their own tasks. Doug is editing his film to appear
on HBO. With that kind of pressure, it's a tribute to him that he
gets around here at all. Look at it this way: Due to the lack of
competing questions, you have everyone's attention -- even
if "everyone," for the moment, is me.
Just signed up yesterday. I'm producing my first documentary
about raising money for AIDS Project Los Angeles by training for
the Dublin marathon and my uncle who's HIV positive. He's the
reason I'm runnning. Anway I was happy to find out about D-word.
Welcome, Jamila. Gonna shoot while you run?
good to have you here, jamila. how did you find us?
Thanks for the welcome, Doug and Steve.
My plan is to shoot while I run both in training and during the
marathon, and to tell my uncle's story. This is my first movie as
producer so I've been looking to gather as much info as I can
while I was at ifpwest I found D-Word.
