Welcome to Wednesday #checkIn for October 30
Come as you are Wednesday. Yes I just made that up. Mid of the week, a friendly and chilly autumn day in Potsdam, Europe, and a grand blue sky above as on the snap I took in the lunch break. Today, share your snap, what caught your eye or attention. Big or small, mundane as-is should you want to. Casual, simple and straightforward. Sit down for a cup. 🙂
In other news, in 1938 the War of the Worlds
radio play was aired, did not
cause a mass panic, but the pretend panic was part of the play, a concerted effort to enhance the experience. Welles's clever technique sure worked then - and, tongue-in-cheek, so sure are we today could not possibly fall for such inflated nonsense, are we. coughs
Or are we so used to stuff being presented in a particular fashion they are not assumed rated F for Fake? So we round up the usual suspects and move on?
It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated.
is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones.
When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn
is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.
Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. #Newhere

is now hosted by a round robin team:

@Su Ann Lim (Canada, GMT-7)
