I think I can see where mystoneycreek is coming from in his article.

Seriously though, I believe the town hall initiative is a good thing, IT just has to evolve into something a little more sexy for folks to become actively involved. Which brings me to a point - INVOLVEMENT.

I personally find activity to be more engaging, rewarding and satisfying than just plain sitting and listening and Matt Jelly's Crawls were just such a thing.

What I find disappointing about MSC's town hall initiative is the fact that he has ignored the providence of an altruistic opportunity:

For Feswick, his son's installations are about more than merely art. They're also a sign the building is starting to return to ITs roots as a gathering place, a hall built in 1879 to bring the community together for dances, concerts and town meetings.

"I would like to see the building have the same life as IT had when James Balfour originally designed IT, which would be for performance space and public use. So I want the public to get back in here to use IT," says Feswick.

"For a number of years, this building wasn't being used at all. Now I'd like to get IT back into the hands of the public and I don’t want to wait two years to do that. I want IT to start immediately...That’s my dream." [Emphasis Added]

So until such a thing exists once again, I'll just rock with the rebels at a Steve Sinnicks jam.
