        click "pay" (top of page) now and place yourself on the Waiting List for your postal code!
         the waiting list fee and the membership dues that moderators must pay give me a stake in your success in forming and maintaining your Wo'O's Table
         when there are several people waiting in a postal code, I will help you decide which one of you will organize and moderate, either as a volunteer or, more typically, for-profit
         for $2 USD per person, I will enable you to find each other and to form real friendships and enjoy real community, through weekly dinner gatherings
         the handout has been carefully designed to excite the kinds of people that are most desirable as friends, spouses, neighbors, coworkers, and employers
         for me, the launch of IdeaFarm Operations is a for-profit enterprise that will terminate when all directors have been replaced by directors elected by the members
        my role (how the money works):

         to find other people in your postal code who want to form a Wo'O's Table dinner group, click "pay" and place yourself on the Waiting List ($2 USD)

         to purchase membership, click "pay" (top right) ($16 or $4 USD / month)

         although I reach out to teenagers, teenagers are not given preference; everyone is equally welcome to become a moderator!
        not a teenager?

         i've envisioned launching Wo'O's Table for more than a decade, and having teenagers moderate the groups has been a part of my vision from the beginning
         why not try this out as your first business enterprise?
         are you a self starter willing to work with initiative and without supervision?
         are you willing to show up reliably and moderate responsibly?
         would you like to earn some spending money by moderating a dinner group?
        are you a teenager?

         then introduce yourself to me via email after clicking "privacy" (top of page)
         review the handout and the Articles of Incorporation (links below)
        interested in serving as the moderator of a local dinner group for fun and profit?

         at that time, membership dues revenue will begin to accrue to IdeaFarm Operations and my role as incorporator will terminate
         \r(The launch of IdeaFarm Operations is thus a for-profit activity for me.)
         revenue from membership dues accrues to me personally as incorporator until the membership has elected all IdeaFarm Operations directors
         new members enjoy a free trial period
        membership is $16 per month, but the most senior active moderator for each postal code pays only $4 per month

         each participant can be required to purchase his or her own meal, or the meal can be provided by the local moderator or by a donor
         the moderator can collect cash at the door, levy dues, or use any other revenue model not in conflict with Wo'O's Table rules
         at the option of each moderator, participation can be anonymous, first name only, full name, or with proof of identity required
        membership is required only for moderators

         for example, an organizer might choose to have everyone meet weekly at a fast food restaurant, or in a park for a picnic, or in someone's home for "pot luck", or at a $30/plate fancy restaurant
        the local moderator for each dinner group will operate independently of IdeaFarm Operations, with minimal regulation

         these are dinner groups formed to bring a community together, united by a common interest in enabling unselfish participants to prosper
         a group also must not pursue a particular topic or interest, or operate in any other way that targets some population segments to the exclusion of others
         a group must not pursue any other mission and must not align itself with particular religions, political parties, social causes, etc
        each group must operate in a manner that is not in conflict with the mission and character of IdeaFarm Operations, which is to promote unselfish living by empowering unselfish people

         ditto for groups formed to serve undocumented immigrants, a particular race, men, women, retirees, minors, nursing home residents, etc.
         for example, a group formed to serve the queer community must welcome straight people and operate in a way that promotes queer people's enjoyment of full participation in the larger community
         such groups will be required to make all comers feel welcome so that the group remains focused on building relationships within the overall community rather than Balkanizing that community
        as participation grows within a postal code, other groups are likely to be formed to serve particular populations, such as felons, undocumented immigrants, or a specific race, gender, sexual orientation, age group, etc

         such groups will be allowed to use selected IdeaFarm Operations trademarks and resources, including referrals of local people interested in participating
         that person will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with local law and with rules set by IdeaFarm Operations
         that person will do all of the work needed to bring the group into existence and then to moderate the dinner meetings to ensure that everyone feels safe and welcome
         for each postal code, the first group will likely be organized and moderated by someone as a for-profit businss
        the Wo'O's Table dinner groups will be organized by postal code
         as participants begin to become members, directors will be appointed, later to be replaced by elected directors, and IdeaFarm Operations will begin to operate independently of me
         once participants see the power of this simple idea, I will invite them to become members of IdeaFarm Operations in order to expand those benefits to each other
         through the Wo'O's Table initiative, I intend to immediately bring empowerment to people through the simple idea of eating together weekly in a spirit of giving rather than taking
         participate regularly, and you will develop real friendships and experience real community as you empower one another economically, politically, and socially
        Wo'O's Table (tm) is my initiative to launch IdeaFarm Operations by inviting people worldwide to (1) eat weekly in community and (2) commit to living unselfishly

         i, the incorporator, intend to donate the domain and its associated trademarks to IdeaFarm Operations once the corporation has replaced all appointed directors with directors elected by the members
         the IDEAFARM.COM domain and the IdeaFarm (tm) and Wo'O's Table (tm) trademarks are the property of Wo'O Ideafarm, the incorporator of IdeaFarm (tm) Operations
         IdeaFarm Operations is registered with the State of California but does not yet have directors, officers or members
        IdeaFarm Operations is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation that is currently being organized

         i just need an email address and postal code
         to list yourself anonymously, just use an email address that does not reveal your name
         or, ask someone to contact me on your behalf
         or, ask me via email (above) to list you for free
         on this web site, for $2 USD, you can put yourself on the waiting list for your postal code
         unless other terms are set by the local moderator for a dinner group, you can participate anonymously, you don't have to become a member, and you don't need to purchase anything other than your own meal
         at these dinners, everyone is welcome
         we invite you to participate in weekly dinners, organized by postal code
         the following invitation is intended for every human being on the planet
        Intended audience and executive summary:


       welcome to Wo'O's Table ... Come, eat with us!
