I accidentally posted this as an entry on my personal blog, but I meant it for the discussion forum. Shows you how often I log in to A|N these days...anyway.
I didn't see any FAQ or news item address this yet, but I have heard
that Ning is transitioning from a free network to a pay network, and I
was wondering what will be the fate of Atheist Nexus? I'm unemployed at
the moment so this is no trivial matter for me. Are the A|N
administrators happy with the Ning decision, indifferent, what? Is the
plan to stick it out with Ning, or move to a different free (to end
users) service? Or should A|N members plan to pony up $3 a year to
continue participating in the Nexus? I'm not sure that I can if that's
If I were in a more isolated, more heavily religious
area I might pay up, but where I live near Houston, Texas has a
reasonably large group of Atheist Meetups, the Houston Church of
Freethought, Humanists of Houston, et. al.
I don't log in as much
now as I did when I first joined, I'll admit.
I still like
Atheist Nexus, there are times when you just want to say something and
only want fellow atheists to hear.
I joined Ning on a whim last
year, before I even knew A|N existed.
BTW, what's up with Atheist
News? No new episode in quite some time, and just a teaser mini-sode
for Chariots of Iron...what's up with that?
Also been patiently
waiting for the next Non-Prophets Radio podcast out of Austin, TX, but I
know Matt & the gang have been busy traveling, etc.
if anyone has heard anything about how Ning's shift is going to impact
A|N, please post a reply.
