It Takes a Virtual Village

post # 300 — February 3, 2007 — a General post

It clearly takes a virtual village to run a blog, because this month the site has been teeming with support and participation from at least a village worth of people (and a big village at that).

It is my pleasure to acknowledge the contributions of everyone who joined in here during the month of January.

Thanks for all the great links—I look forward to exploring these. I’m also interested in developing a list of relevant podcasts for my management students so will be looking at these also.

Wow! That certainly is a lot of comments, trackbacks, and podcast mentions there. Quite impressive really. And something to go through for quite a while.
