Post-meeting notes



#p2 as a bridge between various tags. For simplicity, we discussed in terms of #rebelleft, #topprog, and #fem2.
- both #topprog and #fem2 have (potential) institutional support
- scenario: action surfaces on #rebelleft, percolates to #p2, then fans out to #topprog, #fem2

A big way #p2 can add value
: sharable information.
- e.g., list of hashtags, getting started info

sync up with
- hashtags.org
- #journchat

Follow up with @AriMelber, ask his perspective on where #p2 can be useful (Jon volunteered for this)

@MadamaAmbi will kick off a discussion on FAB and #p2 (details TBD) in the FAB4Obama Yahoo group
