Last week, we hosted our first Migration Demo and Q&A Webinar. Thanks to Juliet for her awesome Demo and to everyone who attended.

Members need both the motivation to initiate and to overcome their fear of starting a discussion. Their motivation to initiate will be to either learn something (e.g. "Does anyone know how to....?"), to impress others (e.g. "does anyone else think business class travel isn't as great as it used to be?" or to bond with others (e.g. "I'm upset Kelly got fired from the Apprentice").

"A word about the features...
OK, OK, I knew it was dangerous to say that we'd have "less" features than Ning ;). The version 2.0 is obsolete (technology speaking) and 3.0 is unfinished and doesn't have any vision nor resource anymore.
