My mind was blown earlier this year, realizing how
much time-suckage and unique skill development people
are putting into Facebook, the AOL and Condé Nast
web properties, and Twitter (especially the last one
-- you could spend a full working day every day in a
different MAXIMIZE YOUR TWITTER POWER online training
class and never repeat one).

The time and effort required to set up and run an
online forum -- a simple CMS/blog, a wiki, or a list
server -- is way less than that.  I put less time into
learning _sendmail_ than people are putting into some
of these "social media" sites.
