I will mention my activity on Atheist Nexus at the PA Athesit/ Humanist convention this month. I also listed the blog on the official website for the convention here: http://atheistpa.org/speakers-2014/
I like Atheist Nexus a lot, and I plan on continuing to be active.
I have been a member of Atheist Nexus for about 2 years - great site. Thankyou for your efforts.
i) I am intersted in extending Atheism into other media channels in South Africa. We have real structural probelms here with Bishops councils etc. I would like to use Atheist Nexus as reference point :- Philip Copeman, spokesperson for Atheist Nexus said "Blah Blah". If you google me or look though my posts you will see I have straight froward mainstream Atheist views (albeit more evangelistic than most), with clearly defined tolerance for secularism, see www.philipcopeman.net . Do you have a formal mechanism of allowing spokespersons?
ii) Have you used the Ning extensions? I have a great communtiy in www.turbocash.net - 110 000 SME accounting users. Huge penetration in the Church market. I am interested in apps that mix accounting and social media. Any ideas? See also www.turbocash.ning.com
iii) I run similar sized communties to Nexus. I have used Joomla in the past but I am finding it increasing cumbersome. I want to swing my investment to Ning, but I am worried about how it stands up on volumes. You have 88000 how do you think it would be if I had 500 000 thousand members - see www.azania1.com
Saw your tweet regarding an Atheist Nexus think tank and am interested in participating. I pride myself on being a pragmatic thinker (which is a fair portion of what finally got me with atheism), and I think I could bring that and my experience to the table.
Give a shout either way, and thanks for hearing me out.
