What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?

I was born in 1958 and have more than 30-years of professional experience as a founder, entrepreneur, marketing integrator, communication coordinator, creative connector and as a project leader and virtual organization manager.


Tell us a bit about your network (example: Creators is a community of Ning Network Creators who gather together to collaborate, troubleshoot, and share tips and tricks)

Tom is a Master Networker whose sincere dedication to "connect the unconnected" permeates his intensive activities online. It's hard not to bump into him directly or indirectly as you navigate the intricate social maps and communities. Above all, his support for others is reflected in the glowing reviews and comments you read everywhere. This is what Web 2.0 and beyond is all about. Tom should be imitated and his lead should be followed by all who intend to make the Web a vibrant, equitable space for sharing ideas and opportunities." -Carlos Salum, Performance Architecture Trainer and Facilitator, Salum International Resources, Inc.

"I agree, if they will treat us like this on 2.0 they will do the same on 3.0.  I use Wordpress as it is a powerful and adaptive platform but I am confortable with maintaining my own site.  I hope you find something you are comfortable with.

"Sorry to see that you have had the same thing happen to your site.  I guess it just reinforces my thought that Ning is a bad option if you want any control of your content. Would you believe that Ning insisted the problem was on my end?

"You make an excellent point, and to back up content we must do it manually.  I can't begin to assume why Ning chooses to have such complete control over the labor of their clients but it certainly isn't a good model for any business owner to work…"
