Brad Ward has an interesting post on ROI with respect to Social Media.
In many ways, this election was a testament to the impact of the information technology. We are in a kind of "second age" of information technology--it isn't maturing, it has matured.

In the Webinar today, I was asked if conditional formatting can be used to change the background color of a field depending on the active 'mode' (Browse, Find) I don't think I fully answered that question.

I'll be hosting a webinar on the basics of FileMaker layouts next week Oct 21, http://filemakerevents.webex.com. This is an introductory-level webinar-- part of the successful FileMaker Basics series that FMI has been hosting recently. If you are new to FileMaker or want a basic refresher and overview of FileMaker layout mode, I hope to see you there. For my part, I am always humbled by those who master the art of keeping things simple. It's been a while since I taught my last intro-level anything.
