i don’t care if they stumbled upon this blog by accident or fell on their keyboard and found themselves here, i think it is pretty cool that i’ve had visitors to this blog from around the world. 🙂 if i could find a clever way of having them post…now that would be REALLY cool. i read a great post about lurking yesterday, i like the way the author wonders about what is stopping lurkers. in face to face conversation, if you had something to say you would say it, right? so what is stopping lurkers from sounding off? do they not care? i agree with several of the commenters to the post – conversation is important and if large segments of our profession continue to remove themselves from that conversation it can have ripple effects. we use the book ‘cradles of eminence’ in one of our sessions and there is a conversation we have about a particular genius who fails to contribute thus he is never considered eminent, which is tragic considering his brilliance. i think this relates.
