I think Alex would be vehemently opposed to the idea, but with a little coaxing, may actually like it.
It's interesting that you say that about a group thing because I was thinking that all of us writers ought to somehow get together on something - but the interaction in a group session may be more than a challenge in getting all of us together in 'real-time', as Chris points out. The idea is definitely a good one!
