  • my presentation is going to be a couple of different things.  i&apos;ll discuss what we tried, what filed, and why.  but at the same time i&apos;m going to give you pointers on things to try out.  what you should be on hte look out for
  • and yes, i will talk about what failed.  i&apos;ll let you know why it failed for us and what i learned from it so that it might work for you
  • well why not? what stops us from trying new things?  i know we don&apos;t fix things unless they are broken, but why not look at how to improve things
  • explore what&apos;s out there.  what&apos;s new, perhaps it simplifies the process, offers more, makes it easier to do, it improves efficiency
  • some new for the sake of being new explore what&apos;s out there.  what&apos;s new, perhaps it simplifies the process, offers more, makes it easier to do, it improves efficiency

  •   tried free tools Why? Because they were free. it meant i didn&apos;t need to go through the long drawn out process of getting money, i could experiment and play without worrying 
  • I came in with new ideas, things to try to help improve some of the things listed above
  • and guess what
  • they all failed
  • i came in thinking, wanting to make things easier and fixing problems that i saw that they didn&apos;t see.  i should have talked more.  presented, displayed, changed the culture it also didn&apos;t meet what the users wanted.  blog/map wanted to show more it also failed because
