Lee White and I recently initiated an experiment, described here, that consists of our writing about a specific topic (project management and social media) on our respective blogs. Lee writes a post on his blog, I respond on my blog, then we combine and display the posts and the comments we receive in a single RSS feed.

We met again last night at a downtown DC bar, a group of policy analysts, bloggers, lawyers, activists, and geeks. I reported on last month's discussion here.
Last night's conversation covered several topics:
What department should manage a corporate “social networking” program for generating business leads?
I thought about this while responding to the question posed on Linkedin Answers by Dave Biskner, How would you implement a staff-wide networking program?
