  • Election in Iran and Hudson plane crash are just two examples of how messages by the people can instantly be shared without official sanction and how those messages are accepted at face value.
  • Consumers/citizens are making decisions today based upon these online conversations and not just upon what is being officially delivered to them.
  • However, we educators have traditionally marketed with viewbooks, DVDs and, static web sites, pushing content but not opening up to the conversation.Turn your funnel into a megaphone – Seth Godin’s flipping the funnelhttp://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2006/01/flipping_the_fu.html
