    Hi randycantrell,

    These are great takeaways. You already know I enjoyed the story — which you shared a wee bit of in a previous comment. I hope you won’t mind if I paraphrase and use it when trying to help somebody “get it” in future conversations about using social media.

    You might enjoy lending your voice to the lively discussion about social media taking place on weblogbetter .

    I plan to spend some more time around here. Love your healthy outlook and social commentary!

    (Never used livefyre before, makes you sign up an account… hmmm.) Take care.
