Lunchclub

LunchClub. Have you tried it? I’ve had 23 meetings with somewhat random people set up by LinkedIn in the past 2 months since it began. I’m sure it’s possible to match with someone and have something cool come of it. And.. I’d much rather be doing this with people in my community. In case you want to try out LunchClub, there’s a link to it below. If you want to try out LunchClub with me, visit my website and set up a 15 minute appt. with me and we’ll take it from there.

I just figured out an aspect of this service that’s reminiscent of a Black Mirror episode. Once you’ve had a meeting with someone you have the ability to send out a note about how the meeting went. That can then be tweeted from their interface. But there’s more. I believe your “review” of the meeting also gets sent to anyone who accepted your invitation to Lunchclub, thus potentially turning it into a marketing vehicle for both you and the person you met with.

Lopping and Helping One Another

Lopping and helping one another

I was walking by Richmond Elementary School just now. Kids playing, sun shining, laughter in the air. If you need a reminder of something good in the world – walk by a playground full of kids. Across the street a woman who I’ve met before stood in her driveway – sweating and doing some yard work. We got to talking about the amazing tree she has that drapes across her garage. She mentioned it needed trimming and I offered to lop it some. Lop, lop, lop, lop and a few minutes later she can walk under the tree without getting bopped so much.

I’ve been wanting to write something about home preservation – and how we might aid people whose homes need a hand, but perhaps they can’t manage it anymore. I don’t have an exact solution – but what would it look like if everyone who was able dedicated 30 minutes a week to working on someone else’s yard/house? Or, just walked the street trimming bushes/trees (while asking permission) to clear the sidewalks so they are passable, and signs remain visible. I know these folks are working on developing a model like this. https://www.eastsidevillage.org/ – but perhaps there’s something easy we could do.

In this vein, I imagine we could create some sort of matching service for people with pets that need walking + those who can’t walk them anymore, but love having pets at home + can’t afford to pay someone to walk their pets. Ideas welcome.
