When I first started this blog, I intended to share my knowledge and experiences of building online communities. That was before I ran across Rich’s blog. I quickly became a pupil and enjoy translating the best practices of what I learn and discuss with Rich and FeverBee followers into peer-to-peer health and the not-for-profit healthcare setting.
