I’m a part of a small group that uses Google Drive to exchange updates and ideas. It’s a great platform I felt because it’s super user friendly; you can make comments and suggestions in real time. It’s also motivational for all of us. We currently have five members, though only four of us are actually active.
Some of us used to meet at a local cafe. One advantage I miss with working at one of these kinds of places was you could get up and get a cup of coffee or tea, and there were usually scones or strudels, too. There were also other nerds with laptops all over the place, with roughly the same idea.
If you’ve worked in a group, did you find it to be motivational? Tedious? Any drama in the group? Felt obligated to read? Felt annoyed that maybe someone was just there for the feedback? We try to avoid hard feelings by making it clear that no one should feel obligated to write comments or reviews or even read.
