thoughts there. You're invited to comment on existing discussions and 
post new topics of interest at the sites mentioned above. Sharing your 
experiences and thoughts about the merits/demerits of specific

private group. If this is of concern to you, please post anonymously by 
picking usernames that are not identifiable with you or your

140 character posting whereas Tumblr provides an opportunity for longer 
posts and a more robust dialog. We look forward to your participation in 
this dialog. If you have any questions, please contact Rajiv Ramnath at
