So far there are 13 folks in Washington DC- and two more in other locations- signed up to join the class of 2013 of the Open Master's! This is a great size and is exactly where we would love to be tracking at this point (big enough to have some great diversity of interests, but small enough to get to know each other well).
If you're still considering joining, you still have until the end of this week to sign up (through Saturday September 15th).
Keep in mind that you do not have to have everything you want to study completely figured out to join. That is what the Open Master's Studios on Sunday, September 30th and Sunday, October 14th will be all about.
More information on the studios: If you have already signed up or are just curious about what these days will hold, head over to the google doc where we're drafting the plans for these studios and feel free to comment directly on the doc.
In addition to that, some of us have already started informally conducting some one-on-one peer reviews of our plans with each other, a few members of the community are starting to propose dates for our first few community meals, and we will be doing a lot more of each of these things in the coming month to help us get to know each other.
For those of you in other locations, we'll be making an announcement soon and following up with some of you directly about organizing virtual participation or local groups of participants in other locations. Stay tuned!
As always, pleas feel free to comment here or email us with any questions!
