We’ve been trying to beef up our communication at MPOW, with some efforts more successful than others. One of the things I decided to try was a site where I would post some of the tidbits of information that I inevitably gather as I go about my week. I’m not sure how many people (if any) and reading it, but it’s out there.
I thought I’d share some of the tidbits here, too. Enjoy.
