Hi all,

Thank you for all your posts giving me piece of mind. I have never used 
Facebook or any other social media service for the reasons laid out by 
you. I feared missing a great thing. But, that doesn't seem to be the 

Fine. Let's keep social media at a low priority and tackle the 
important things first.

Is there any means to internationalize the Munich based Stammtisch? For 
those not familiar with German culture: A Stammtisch is a regular 
informal round-table in a bar where you can meet and greet people, talk 
nonsense and sometimes stumble into serious topics.

Would it make sense to organize a Stammtisch via VoIP,  Mumble, 
palava.tv ? Or have a one hour and a half window of the real Stammtisch 
transmitted live to individuals scattered around the rest of the world 
-- with bidirectional communication, of course?
