  • my presentation is going to be a couple of different things.  i'll discuss what we tried, what filed, and why.  but at the same time i'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'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't fix things unless they are broken, but why not look at how to improve things

  • and guess what
  • they all failed
  • i came in thinking, wanting to make things easier and fixing problems that i saw that they didn't see.  i should have talked more.  presented, displayed, changed the culture it also didn't meet what the users wanted.  blog/map wanted to show more it also failed because
