Anton's Meetup Today:

April 3, 2021


Anton started coming to the LoDo Panera Bread Socrates Cafe, we haven’t met there for a year because of the Pandemic, but he has joined us online from time to time.

Seems like he started his then-new meetup a few weeks before that, and he’d gone to Friday and Saturday Socrates Cafes for a few months before that, he may have gone to Trinity Church Tuesday night Socrates Cafe, too. 

This morning I was supposed to meet with Dan, instead did Pray as You Go meditation, Examine of Lenten experience this year, started posting online and decided to set up Quarum Space, SBCC Method— The Practices of: Recover, Imagine, Think, Learn; to Start, Grow, Flourish. First question: what algorithms have you found most useful? For me IDEA and OODA Loop. As I wrote about what I’d done in journal got first member volunteering. We’ll see… as Kurt Vonnegut used to say regularly in his books.

Where’s Anton? I was hoping he’d get to his meeting early. Good for me to learn, I’ve started showing up right at 6:30 p.m. to Socrates Cafes here in Denver online on Saturdays (tonight), Tuesdays and Fridays, once a month 1st Sunday tomorrow, have I changed the time to 6:30 p.m.? Millions of little details like that, I’m working a lot, seems like playing a lot, and I guess it is since I’m not earning a penny. I’d never recommend anyone else do what I’ve done for the past 23+ years since Janet left.

12:15 p.m.

Starts at 12:30 p.m. ...

Great meeting, thanks Anton. Who am I to evaluate any Meetup meeting, especially the first time I attend it. Ed gave a good presentation on decision theory, then there was a good iscussion on the topic. We ran out of time when the topic of intuition came up, good starting place for tonight's Socrates Cafe?

Socrates Cafe, join us tonight or any Saturday, Tuesday, or Friday, this week also on 1st Sunday tomorrow, 6:30 p.m. see call with any question ((303)861-1447

Grassroots Learning.

An informal Socrates Cafe has been meeting here in Denver since  the Friday after 911. 

I just received this from someone who used to meet frequently with us here in Denver who I hadn't seen for a while:

Hi, John! Nice to hear from you! Thanks for thinking of me. I live in Boulder now, and right now we are in the middle of moving (just a half mile away, but a much nicer apartment). Socrates, you, and the other guys were a lifesaver when I first moved to Colorado and was trying to find my way, make connections, and get established. Now I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, building a new career, really enjoying what life offers. I send my gratitude to you and all the members.
