Charmed Particles

I thought I'd toss in a quick comment about advertising and conversation while I work on kind of a '12 step' list about implementing conversation-centric organization using social media tools.

Why so many community initiatives fail to take flight…

Ant's Eyeview Blog

As we move from an era of experimentation (flush budgets) to one with much higher accountability for results (frugal investments), it’s even more important to look at why projects fail – and conversely why projects succeed.
