Just in Case you are Wondering...

I haven't updated in forever, and it seems nobody else who has admin access has either figured out how to use Joomla or has also not been adding anything to the site.
I have heard nothing from the members I had been in contact with previously in other parts of the state for a while, so I'm not sure if there is activity. I noticed a member posting in the Spokane forums tonight about being willing to help out if anyone is interested in following up. I personally still really support the core ideals and goals of the Zeitgeist Movement, but I have had major time constraints imposed by work and spending what little time I have on personal projects with similar pursuits. I am happy to facilitate if anyone would like to help rekindle the Washington State activity. In Seattle, we have continued to have a good and pretty active group on Meetup.com - http://www.meetup.com/ZeitgeistSeattle/ - ...if you are in the Seattle area and would like to join. Rob has been continuously active in posting events, and they are pretty consistently attended by at least a small group. We haven't had a chapter meeting in a long time, but the last one was great. Florian, who has also been very active, is currently attending an Earthship building training program, but he has also been active in helping to keep the Seattle group engaged with movie screenings and hosting some meetings.
If anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me and I can help you connect. Sorry we have not done newsletters or consistent meetings, but if you are interested, the door is always open for you to step up and help generate activity and coordinate!

Hello Zeitgeist Washington!
I (Mike Hines) moved out of the country for about 6 months, but I'm back in the States now and will try to get back into updating the websites. I don't have much time for other activities at the moment, but David Noel is taking over the role of state coordinator for Washington, and will be resuming the reporting to the national meetings.
David and Jeremy Peterson (BoomBrusher on the forums) are working on getting things going again with the Washington chapter. Jeremy posted the message below in the forums on this site last week. Please check out the Facebook site if you are on FB and get involved there, or post on the forums here if not. Let's try to get things rolling again!

The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread across the country, and Seattle is in full swing. The Occupy movement is very much in parallel with the TZM concepts of moving society in a direction of benefitting all people and attempting to create a more sustainable, healthy society. It wants money out of politics and culpability for corporations. If you have the time and can come participate on the ground, please do. The movement could use our energy, ideas and presence.

MC, a new member in the Snohomish area, is interested in trying to get the Snohomish (we generally use Everett now for the forum) adopt a highway program going again. If anyone in that area is interested, please comment in the forum thread!

The URL for the TS3 server has been changed to ts.zmdev.net - same password as before. This was a rather sudden change, so I'm posting it here for anyone looking for the information.
