This page is for coordinating and organizing Breakfast on the Bridges. For general info on BonB and how to get involved, please visit breakfast_on_the_bridges.

BonB Mailing List

BonB's primary mode of communication and collaboration is through the BonB Listserve. This is, by far, the best way to get in contact with other BonBers to ask questions, make plans, or offer help and ideas.

As with any mailing list, please keep messages on topic and try not to flood everyone's inbox. Filtering incoming mail to a specific folder is always a good idea.

Spreadsheet

We're attempting to implement an online/collaborative spreadsheet document to assist with BonB coordination. Anyone can view this document and invited collaborators may edit and update it. A Google account is required to view and edit the document (a GMail account not required- you may use your current e-mail address). Safari (Mac) and Linux users may experience difficulty or be completely unable to access the spreadsheet. I highly recommend using Firefox- a free web browser for all systems- to overcome these issues.

To access the BonB spreadsheet, click here (must have your Google account logged in).

Register

If you followed the link above and it asked you to sign in and you don't know what it's talking about, you'll probably need to register. To set up a Google account using your existing e-mail service, follow these steps (I swear it's quick and painless):

  1. From the Google Spreadsheet welcome page, follow the link to Create a Google Account. Or just click here.
  2. Fill in your current e-mail address and choose a password. This step could be summed up with: Read the directions. You'll also have to fill in one of those silly squiggly image verification thingies.
  3. Accept the terms of service and create your account by clicking the button at the bottom.
  4. Check your e-mail. You should get a verification message from Google. In it there's a link. Click it.
  5. You should see a page confirming your registration and inviting you to manage your account.
  6. Now that you're logged in to Google, try to access the spreadsheet by clicking here.
  7. You'll get a page asking for more info. They don't really want more info, they just want to confirm that you wish to view the spreadsheet. Click Continue.
  8. Now you should be able to see the spreadsheet. Congratulations!

Collaborate

Anyone may view the spreadsheet as long as they've registered an account with Google. Only invited users may make changes (ie: collaborate, add/edit/update). It's easy for collaborators to sign themselves up for duties, report inventory they might be holding, or make changes to information and dates.

If you'd like to have access to make changes to the spreadsheet, request it on the mailing list. An invitation to collaborate will be sent to the e-mail address you use on the mailing list. If you'd like the invitation sent to a different e-mail address, please note the address in your request.

If you've already registered a Google account, just follow the link and you should be all set. If you haven't registered follow the instructions above.
