The category "Forum Talks" is for mini-talks on relevant material. These can be thought of as prototypes for talks or blog articles. It's a way to get early feedback on your ideas.

If anyone is presently writing blog articles, then consider starting discussions on the forum, one per article, to go over them.

In the Azimuth of former times, people would create drafts of blog articles on the Azimuth wiki, and then start a forum discussion for review and editing. That is still a reasonable model. Alternatively, you can create a draft of your blog article as a forum talk.

For the username, we want to use real first and last name. But 'mentioning' -- which sends notifications to users when @FirstnameList appears inside of a message -- doesn't work if there a space in your username. If anyone wants to change their username send me a message.

Now that the MIT course has finished, let's try to transition into continuing study mode.

There is a lot more for us to mine from the MIT lectures. But we can also start branching out as well.

We now have a study group now active on the forum. I'm calling it the "Azimuth Forum ACT Study Group," and I created a category called ACT Study Group.

You'll see a first post there, which is a discussion for collecting references for recommended reading, videos, etc.

We can begin by collecting information in an ad-hoc manner in the discussions, and then later distill it into organized wiki pages.

All the Best!
