Slovenian Zeitgeist meeting

I have joined in on this week's Slovenian Zeitgeist Movement meeting, in hopes to learn more about them. They seem to be an interesting bunch with varied expertise and a technocratic vision. This is somehow different from what I had expected, but in a good way.

The general consensus was to try to reach younger people (students) with a gentle reminder of the system in which they live in and various technical solutions to their problems. They will be producing leaflets and leaving them in waiting rooms and other places where bored people hang out at. It was also decided not to go for rigid geographical grouping, but rather feature a map with members marked, where people can decide for themselves what they consider to be "local".

As previously mentioned, I have committed to helping them on the technical side. I will be helping them adapt their Plone based website to the common ZM design.
