Was reading Andy Goodman talking about how organizations need to tell stories to explain what they do (my fav quote was "numbers numb, jargon jars"). I got thinking about what stories we could tell about SkS to explain what we do. I thought one avenue would be to invite people to send in stories of how they've used SkS. Eg - used the iPhone app in a conversation, used guide in a program, learnt from the website, etc. What do people think of this idea?

Heh, just like the literary agent telling me to start off my book with an anecdote. I guess he knows what he's talking about :-) Are you thinking as guest posts, John?

Maybe a webpage "Tell us your SkS stories" with a few examples and a submission form. But need some examples first.

We've got examples of climate scientists and Scott Mandia using SkS.
