Hi! I'm Capella, and I'm Grand Master of the Guild of Analysts. Which is a pretty impressive title, but it just means "person who had the harebrained idea" and "chief facilitator". I wanted to talk a little bit about what my goals are for the Analysts, so that people can see what I'm thinking right now, and then suggest ways of getting there or of making these goals even better.
My goal as the person with the idea for the Analysts is that I wanted to reach out to of the smart, brilliant people we have who are already working on some fascinating studies of the D'ni universe and offer them a space for vibrant intellectual exchange. People doing detailed projects can get in touch with each other and exchange resources, skills, idea-bouncing, and more. I'm hoping eventually there will be Analysts with interests and experience in a variety of disciplines so that finding someone in an area you're interested in will be easy.
My goal as the Grand Master is to provide a basic point of contact for other groups to reach out to. Beyond that, I want this Guild to grow through the efforts of all of its members and to be an organization that helps them achieve their goals. So please, send me feedback. One of my jobs is to be responsive to feedback and willing to discuss your suggestions openly and promptly.
I hope you find this project worthwhile.
