Awesome, heh I'm sure we'll have questions for the list in good time :)

Actually, I hadn't seen that list before but I've just signed up for
it and it sounds really interesting! The big difference really is that
I'd like to try and build something a little more personal, where we
have a group of people who can contact each other in real time and
have regular meeting times as well as being able to find each other in
between meetings too. I think this kind of consistent relationship is
probably quite conducive to learning, and I think others would
probably agree :)

Yeah, I think we're definitely going to be making use of these
resources, and then just using each other as support as we wade
through the material and inevitably get stuck in places!

Thanks for your help :)
