Have a real project

I think all these strategies are much more better when there is something actually to do. What should we do? Anyone need the wisdom of this crowd for a project? If it is a compelling project, then we can find the right media/setting/environment to do it.

I have an idea for a useful question for which I could use input from this group related to a project proposal that I am working on...actually two projects...one... more »
