Writing books is better than

"Writing books is better than planting vines: the latter serves only the needs of the stomach, whereas the former feeds the soul."

Quoted from A Dictionary of Library and Information Science Quotations. Edited by Mohamed Taher & L S Ramaiah (New Delhi , Aditya, 1994) p. 5. See Amazon.com.

There are two paths avialable to you. One is to work hard at increasing traffic, and in that way you have at least caught my attention enough to post, and the other is to accept that traffic may be slow but that if you have something interesting enough to say people will find it and use it. I use to blog and get upset that no one seemed to be reading, then I lost heart and stopped, and out of the blue my blog was suddenly being listed in all sorts of places. I still haven't gone back to it, it's really a stand alone subject and finished as such, but it's ok, sometimes someone finds something useful in it.

In any group of people there will be personality incompatibilities. A lot of the time these can be minimised with a good leader. Problem is that most leader tend more towards ambition rather than people skills. A leader with people skills can ease all the externals such a new technology, but it takes an exceptional leader to handle the personalities in a group.
