TRUST IS NOT ANONYMOUS
Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 02/19/2006 - 22:25.
It didn't dawn on me until after I had finished commenting regarding the network map that I had blown the main point.
The reason names are critical in a network map is because trust cannot be anonymous.
"building trust" - we hear it at all the meetings, we hear it from Jack, from Valdis, from Norm, from Ed, from Tom, from George, from Berlin, from William - but you can't build trust with anonymity. We need names and faces - lots of them - like in high school - to connect to and listen too. Then trust will come.
So anonymous maps are a waste of time. Same with anonymous log ins on realneo or elsewhere. Who is going to do business with someone who is reluctant to put their name on their comments?
If one wants business to come from their civic involvement - then I think one needs to be their real self...
Thanks for all your (and Susan's) hard work on getting the message out!
