One of the ways I’m using our new forums is to share some shorter posts and solicit more of a discussion around certain topics. So I’ll frequently post a short post, or top of mind thought to the forum. To let everyone know there is new content there I’ll create a post like this one and link to some of the newer topics I’ve posted in the forums. Here are the recent posts with some commentary by me to get the discussion going.
