The objective of this blog is be a conversation catalyst. Although I will publish posts expressing my opinions, points of view, rants, etc. I want each post to be a seed for conversation and I want you, the community, to chime in.

The goal of this blog is to harness the vast combined knowledge of people like you to help the new comers whether they are students, young pros, or 65 year old grandmothers wanting to get in the game.

There you have it. Please post your top 5 lists and I’ll compile a master list that will be reformatted into an OPML file and I will write a RSS Reader Starter’s Guide. Now whenever you want to bring someone into the fold just send them the starter’s guide and the OPML file. Quick and clean.
Stop by for some tea and crumpets.
