Meatball is a community of active practitioners striving to teach each other how to organize people using online tools. Members here are engaged with building or caring for communities, community knowledge or supporting community tools.
We gather here in a spirit of BarnRaising, exchanging help when needed, and mostly by teaching each other. You can find out more about the MeatballProject from the MeatballBackgrounder.
