#IntJC Time to call it quit

#IntJC is closing the door. After 24 sessions, it is time to move on to something else. The format has shown the power of remote communication when and where there is a will, and some limitations as well. I want to focus on the power here and distribute flowers well deserved.

1. Thank you to all the participants over time. It has always been a miracle to see you pop up on the screen when doubt was in the air that it could be a no-show.
2. Thank you to the repeaters. How could you come again and again to this?
3. Thank you for the friendship across continents. This will survive that.
4. Thank you for the insights and supports.
5. Thank you for the sharing from veterans to beginners and students.
6. Thank you to the veterans for not disregarding #IntJC despite the experience, qualification and level mix.
7. Thank you for the support, exchange of ideas and various helps that took place behind the stage. And this still happens in the present.
8. Thank you to my copilot friends in South-America where the energy is tremendous.
9. Thank you to the rare daring liaison interpreters who came and to those who didn't.
10. Thank you for the achievements and the warmth.

As #IntJC and the web site have no copyrights attached, anyone is welcome to use the hashtag and name, and the web site is open for sharing or any means of transfer. Until the Gods at Google decide to clear it up, archives are and will be visible as usual and hopefully inspiring new and fresh initiatives from you.

From now on, see you on all possible channels. Whenever you stop over in Tokyo, let's meet.

  1. Thanks for the opportunity, energy and leadership.

  2. Sorry you had to close it. I didn't contribute, because I don't twit. But I observed.

  3. Hi Lionel! I'm a little late as usual :-), but I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into #IntJC. It's a unique initiative, unheard of before. For me you have definitely sparked an idea and showed a great example of how to co-operate, learn from each other and share experiences on completely equal terms. I hope that this is not the end, but just a beauty sleep and that when different questions arise we can meet again under this umbrella. I know I was not the most active member, but I have really appreciated the initiative. And as you say, the most beneficial part of the initiative are the friends we've made.

    1. Thanks for the kind words and praise. This has been made possible thanks to the participation of many. I just brought a spark in the pitential for something in the waiting.

      The Beauty is still showing blips on the EEG screen. Something is still be brewing ...
