That first step

Postby Alban » Fri Mar 24, 2006 11:47 pm

With so many members, I thought it would be very interesting to see how people came to be part of the comunity here.

Personally, I just happened to look at Friends re-united one day (out of the blue) and saw Matthew's message about how he had posted here. As it turned out, Matthew, Tom, Dan and myself all joined within a few days of each other. This was totally independent, so quite a coincidence considering that it was at least 25 years since we'd all last spoken.

I've made it a poll as I think we can cover most of the options, and it would be very interesting to see the spread. But it is also an ongoing place where people can introduce themselves (giving as much or as little detail as they like). I'm really hoping that this stays on-topic for this reason

Well, so far I'm in the majority - having done a general search on the net to learn more about the SES and to find whether others were discussing or writing about their experiences. As they were - here! (and a few other places.)

After only two days of results, I'm quite suprised that the majority of you went hunting. I suppose I'd rather thought the grapevine would have played a bigger part in the audience figures.

Just goes to show the power of Google.

As for the other people I know who have found this site,

1 was also hunting on google,
1 was told by that first person (word of mouth out of SES)
and 1 was either hunting on google or was told by mouth within SES.
