  • Hi Lee,
    Thanks for sharing info. Great stuff to see.

    Question on slide 31; do you not count your time costs? Having not heard the real presentation with you verbal comments, I can only take this slide to mean there were no costs to Mayo Clinic.

    However, there _are_ real dollars spent in paying someone to create stories and share them. Social media tools may be free but the commitments to using them on a regular basis are not free.

    Great examples of this are expressed in two posts (of many!) by Chris Brogan
    * How Many Chores Does It All Add http://www.chrisbrogan.com/how-many-chores-does-it-all-add
    * Just as Difficult as it Seems http://www.chrisbrogan.com/just-as-difficult-as-it-seems

    Again, thanks for the info and sharing.
    Sincerely,
    John Blue
