Thanks and a big shoutout to Marc Lefkowitz for pointing out the subtleties and nuances of this site.
Marc and I - are both working on a design committee for the Mayor's Sustainability 2019 effort - and trying to find the right platform - is the challenge.
As I posted to the committee this morning - when ti comes down to it - I believe it's about human facilitation that really makes teh difference.
It doesn't really matter which blog tool, forum or message board you use - its what you do with it.
So look for all kind sof 'conversation' and 'collaboration' facilitators to come out of teh woodwork to help flow the interaction.
My favorite person who does this sort of work is George Nemeth.
