Having difficulty with the Chat feed - Jason is calling widgetlaboratories to speak to the evil genius and hopefully it will be back up soon.
Here was the discussion for today and we would enjoy hearing your feedback about the RecruitingBlogs.com community. Please add to this take away from it but help contribute to describing what the RB.com community is, what you want to contribute to it and what you want from it.

Susan, I just saw this and thought I might be having browser problems. IE has probs with all the "stuff" that goes on in the framework of Ning networks. I wonder if Firefox or Opera are better? I used to use Firefox and remember that you can tell it to basically not download any ads (thereby saving considerably on download time.)
Hey, let me ask: how do your thought processes on Yoga fit into your community aspect? I'm more a Krav Maga [Bourne Identity] fan for the cardio piece (and you never know when an armed attacker might attack you on an airplane . . . not! . . . although the training is highly functional) . . . but I can tell you that I'm a huge Aikido [Steven Segal] fan as well (which is the exact inverse of Krav Maga as it's non-combative). Aikido taught me a great bit about the biz world and to be honest, is a different way of looking recruiting and life in general (i.e. the yin and yang, transferring energy, etc.) . . . while Krav Maga is more about 'devastatingly' ending a conflict in seconds. I guess both have their place within business thinking (perhaps the yin & yang of strategic thinking.?.)
Thanks Paul - respect is a big thing and something that will be important as the community grows. Jason has a lot of credibility and generates trust. How do we as the community help foster that as well.
