Updated my Press database with LISA Press contacts.

This week, I made some progress on the LI Marketing plan, but it still needs a lot of work.

Frustration of the week: The biggest challenge to working remotely is that I'm a big team-player type of person. I build groups that focus on specific areas and get issues out on the table, but communication by email is bulky and s l o w. A conversation barely gets started in small chunks, which make it readable, but large, deeper, more meaningful email requires longer attention spans from participating team members, and tends to get way off topic too quickly to resolve the original issues. Teleconferencing is the more useful tool for remote work, but tends to be expensive and it is not reasonable to have an expensive teleconferencing solution installed in my house. Where did the day go??? I don't feel like I've been terribly productive, but I've been pretty focused and things are finally congealing into real, tactical programs.

Sent my weekly note to the LI members.
