Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

Live Community Meeting (online)

February 26th

1 PM Pacific

4 PM Eastern
8 AM the next day AEDT

. . . . .

I can already hear you asking

What's Up?

I am trying something new. To my knowledge, this hasn't been done in our community before.

I've set up a meeting that will take up to 100 participants. That means up to 100 people can be logged in at the same time - AND join the conversation.

Believe me: I'm quite prepared for there to be a bit of chaos! Everyone could be connected with audio AND Video. So wear your nice clothes and mute your microphone when we start.

Here's what I'm doing . . .

This is intended to be an open discussion about what you need. I want to talk about a possible new, interactive venture in the SMB IT and Managed Service community. BUT I promise there will be no sales pitch.

Over the last dozen years, I've been lucky enough to come up with products and services that you need and want. Lots of it is available for free. Lots of is sells for a price. But I can't read your minds!

I want an open discussion about what works and what doesn't work in our community.

I want to talk to you about a new project I'm scheming up and see how you think it should evolve. Setting my ego aside, I'm also prepared for the attendees to say it's the stupidest thing they've ever heard.

Who knows. This Community Meeting might work. Or it might bomb. But let's give it a try.


No registration is required. That means you don't enter your email. You just show up and get in. Zero barrier to entry. That also means, you won't get reminder emails.

Absolutely Free. No selling allowed. I promise.

Meeting Info
Topic: Karl's Community Meeting
Time: Feb 26, 2018 1:00 PM Pacific Time

UPDATE: View the recorded meeting here.


You will be muted when you join. Please unmute yourself whenever you wish. But please stay muted if you are just listening. This could go wrong a hundred ways.

Be patient and respectful. I've never done this before and I'll be learning along with everyone else. Let's not all talk at once.

Limited to 100 Participants. If we get more than that, I don't know what you will experience. My guess is, keep trying in case someone drops off.

Enter your name in Zoom. It could be your whole name, your first name, or just a handle you want us to use. I can't call on you if everyone comes in as anonymous.

This is a video call. Please use a camera if you have one. The screen will show 25 people at a time. In the upper right hand corner, select Gallery view to see everyone. If you select speaker view, the system will show you whoever is speaking at any given moment.

Note: I am going to talk for 5-10 minutes about my proposed project. I would love your feedback. But if you have other agenda items, we will try to get to you . . . and everyone else.

Please share this announcement with your groups on social media, forums, etc. I would love to jam the phone lines with 100 people.

Put this in your calendar and paste this "join" link into the appointment so you don't have to look is up:

I hope to see you at the Community Meeting!
