Do Your Bit To Save The HHS

Hi AllHave a look at this: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/NHS-posters-and-leafletsDavid Cameron's taking a gamble that his dangerous NHS changes won't become an election issue. This week, huge billboards – paid for by donations from over 20,000 38 Degrees members – are going up across the UK to tell people about the threat to our NHS. But there are still people that don't know about the threat our NHS faces. I've just…See More

Hi Joe, not sure what info you're needing, so sorry if I tell you stuff you already know:
The url for this video (pass cursor over 'Occupy Economics') is  http://vimeo.com/32597394
To include eg in a comment box: (type in any text you might want, then) get (copy) embed code from http://vimeo.com/32597394 - 4th button on right, switch to html editing - last button on right of comment box - and paste in code, (add comment/save)

Is this your question? NatCAN looks to be going well from the look of the front page. Always a bit disappointed i can't get to see beyond that, kinda puts me off joining, best wishes, Phil

Hi Joe - did you see news of the Glam takeover of Ning? 

http://oursociety.org.uk/forum/topics/the-future-of-ning-and-making-networks-work

Do drop a comment if you think some collaboration on this would be useful.

Are you in Brum for YSM on Friday?

Congrats on NatCan http://nationalcan.ning.com/ Not sure if I'm active enough to qualify :-) but glad to help if I can.

Hi Joe, I heard you were in Brazil. You saw the CD strategy has now been officially launched on the NW TWC website? Will you be at the CDX conference in Sheffield on the 26th? Would be good to catch up.

Hi Joe & welcome to Our Society!

You can read a bit more about Our Society and what we hope to achieve by having a read of Our Purpose and our About Us page.

This network is in the early stages of development so we'd very much appreciate any comments or suggestions that you have. I've set up a Feedback Forum for your comments.

As a quick way to get the ball rolling, why not read our Getting Started info, and please take a moment to tell us a bit about yourself in the "Who are you?" thread.

Thanks again for joining, please contact me if you have any problems, and do feel free to set up your own group or discussion - I'm happy to assist with either.

~ Sophie
