TypePad HTML Email Terry, per our dialogue the other night, I think I could introduce you to somebody who does provide these capabilities. Maybe even more than one company!Tony

TypePad HTML Email Thanks Chris. Per Jerry Fultz’ input, that was the intent of part 1. http://tonydye.typepad.com/main/2011/05/chms-selection-process-part1.html Amazing how that’s the answer to so many things, and how over and over we see people avoid that. (“people” includes me)Tony

Katie, thanks for your input. (Please say 'hi' to Gene Dunn for me) By any chance were you involved in the process of how F1 was selected? For the moment I'm more focused on how to choose a ChMS, rather than how to use the ChMS that you've chosen, but clearly the two are inter-twined.

You guys are helping me to remember some fun times. I remember knowing octal and hex so well that I frequently toggled in programs of several hundred bytes from the front panels. It wasn't even much of an annoyance!

Clif, I didn't know that about you, but somehow I'm not surprised. I may have to visit you and let you power up that old MicroVAX. Think we can find an old DecWriter to plug into it? I sort of miss the sound & feel of devices like that.

Carel, are you using Hootsuite from your iPhone? When I last looked at it, I wasn't able to create the integrated stream I'm looking for. Maybe I need to look again.

TypePad HTML Email Thanks Joel. I think David and I are having a very friendly, and small, disagreement on terms, which we continued on his blog. http://blog.bvcms.com/2010/12/choosing-a-chmsfully-functional-or-easy/ We’re not as far apart as our words might indicate. Glad to have you in on the discussion. Nice use of the Apple TV example. It’s amazing when something previously so complicated can be converted into something trivial.

=>>David. I think we're in agreement. It's great when somebody masters a tool. My point is that if nobody is willing (or able?) to master that tool, then the tool is useless. So either a product has to be something that can be learned ("easy"), or the value has to be high enough for someone to go through the pain of learning. Of course, easy and high value together is a real win!

Thanks Vern. I've seen other posts speaking of LinkedIn's obituary. I don't think it's that bad, but still a shame.

Thanks Clif. When my parents celebrated 50 years, we wondered how many more there might be. Surprise! Big celebrations at 55, 60, 65,and then starting around 67 a big one each year. This will be the first year in quite a while that there won't be a big celebration. Or, maybe there will be anyway! :-)

TypePad HTML Email Jason == Short answer. Today, it’s a local install solution. However, it is browser-based and SaaS in the plans. A system could be hosted by a service provider and the net would be the same as SaaS. Let me know if you’d like more of an answer. From: TypePad

Jerry, I owe you a phone call this week. I have a short list too. SaaS is a deciding point, but there are still a lot of people for who SaaS is NOT the answer. (and like you've seen, for others, SaaS is the ONLY answer!) We'll figure this out, eventually! Thanks,

OK, let's think about that. your input would be appreciated. My first shot at it: 10. Somebody must be making enough money to keep on selling it 9. Somebody keeps on buying it 8. The pain of leaving one ChMS is too great to move to another 7. What if the new one isn't better? 6. What if the new one is worse? 5. The magazine reports indicate they're all the same 4. The magazine reports indicate they're all great! 3. These are all Christians, so they must be honest and helpful 2. "following the crowd" If other people keep using it, then it must be OK, right? I must me the one who doesn't get it. 1. Tens of thousands of churches really don't know that there might be something better. So, they are "satisfied" with what they have.

Jerry, I'd welcome any input from others. I'm about to start a series of what *I* think is important, knowing that what I think doesn't really matter. Hopefully it will at least spark some thought or further dialogue.

Thanks Dave. It's interesting to me that you, and others who have commented off-line, have talked about SaaS being more important than features of the product. (OK, I guess SaaS is a feature) This tells me something really big. Now I just have to figure out what that is! :-)
