My 7 Villages Page

I have been playing around with the new United Methodist Church website. Unfortunately, I was unable to participate in the dialogue session open to UM bloggers, but here and there I've managed to pick up a few things about the site.

One of the more interesting features (at least to me and what I've seen so far) is the 7 Villages network. As Beth Quick points out, "it's certainly no myspace," but as far as I know, it's still in the beta stage. But I think something like this could revolutionize how our denomination communicates. Just seeing the connections happen over at The Methoblog, there is some serious potential for doing some really neat things.

Anyhow, I'm just going to plug my page: Stop on by!

are we friends yet? i'm sure i'm gavoweb after the 7villages thing.

what i'm seeing is that you will have some strangers to the tech / social networking world come to this fold.. hopefully will become comfortable with this environment and move into where the "people" are.

I think it'll take some adjustment for the newbies (heck, I'm still figuring things out). It'll take some working out the bugs on all sides...but so far, I really haven't seen much networking! I'm sure that will come with time and familiarity though.
