I just joined the team here on Ning.
The best thing with social media is that, now, I can chat or 'talk' with some of you guys that I have already read your books and articles. Some 20 years ago we could read a book or listen to a song but interact with the author... too many filters and intermediaries.
Nowadays I can say to Mr. Vernon Prior, "Sir, your articles on FreePint made me enter and discover the beauty of CI activity". Isn't that amazing?
It's a communication 'downsizing', no middle levels needed anymore.
Well, it's 4h40 of the morning here in Portugal, not dawn yet, We have minus 1 tonight because of a Polar air mass and it feels great to be here writting to all of you CI Gurus.
Arik, I read all your newsletters religiously. Once I wrote you an email with some questions for my PhD and you were very kind and thoughtfull in your answer. Thank you for that, others that I asked for some guidance didn't act the same way.
We must remember that one day it's us that need someone and we'll appreciate the time and help of others.
I wish you all the best of the years on 2009, although we all know that it's a good thought but a difficult one to accomplish. Let's hope for the best.
Best Regards From Portugal and from the town of the amazing Oporto, the Port Wine. Cheers
