  1. One of the more useful (and far more difficult to employ) capabilities of social media is the use of comments, "like buttons", and sharing scripts to provide feedback and amplification to those whose blogs you read or use for information.

    I want to use this comment space to express my appreciation for providing me the opportunity, in such an elegant setting, amongst a truly august group of people, to share my thoughts with some of your members.

    In addition to the actual presentation, I had the opportunity to converse with a couple dozen others, primarily at the Newcomer Speed Networking Event on Sunday evening. That was a lot of fun. I must have spoken to eight or nine PhD students and got to hear about their various projects . . . some of which I actually understood pretty well :0)

    Meeting Catherine Watkins and Kathy Heine was surely a highlight of my experience. I had very nice, informative conversations with them and am looking forward to the possibility raised of writing an article for your magazine, inform.

    IMO, you are doing all the right things. Now you need to get a larger segment of your membership to understand how to use - and feel comfortable with using - the tools you're providing them to become more "social". I'll talk to you (I'm pretty certain you're going to read this, Amy) more about this in another venue.

    PS - Love your domain name, Dorothy.
