Member Newsletter #2

Hello Uncommon founders,

Postcards have begun to arrive from around the world! It's a privilege to read your thoughtful, funny, and always interesting responses. A few of the favorite things shared so far are Rome, J.R.R. Tolkien, Disneyland, a bath, and the Internet. For those of you who are still pondering, it would be wonderful if you could return the postcards by the end of the month.

As I mentioned in the latest dispatch, we're making progress on the site. The first version will focus on our ten favorite things in the world. The biggest challenge at the moment is suppressing the many ideas that keep coming up while we're working. A weekly Campfire chat is proving helpful in keeping us on track, as well as giving us a chance to talk through questions. Here's a tiny snapshot of the favorites page. We'll share more in the next update.

Each March, Austin hosts South By Southwest, a two-week film, music, and interactive festival. It seems like a good possibility that some of you might be heading this way. If so, please reply and let us know. We might need to do a little Uncommon gathering.

Finally, as promised last time, below is a list of Uncommon's founders. It's been great fun getting to know everyone in this community. Hopefully, more of you can now have a similar experience.

Questions and thoughts welcomed. Until next time,
