I've been following the discussion on the Medium Format digital board regarding the RG forum. It seems to me that the need arising from this is a forum to discuss non-technical issues, photographic and otherwise, that seem to naturally arise in the course of conversation.
Maybe Michael would be kind enough to start a "Coffee Shop" for us to meet and talk, or just listen as I usually do. Open, more or less self-moderated, but not limited to technical or even format-specific topics.
Just a thought.
Now where's my coffee cup?
