Thanx for excusing my use of CAPS (I'm on my Treo as my client has shut down most Internet access - it was only open briefly for a few days ;-).

If and when this changes, I'll be the first one screaming.
Until then, people need to recognize the major differences involved.

I just realized that many complaints flying back'n forth were from trainers.
And some of those trainers were NOT thinking completely like Alumni, but more marketing.
And they were defeating their own intentions, but not realizing the differences.
I think we really need an external structure like "Fedora Ambassadors" in LPI as I suggested at the 2006 April SAC.
Now I'm too of an opinionated SOB to lead that effort, but I would like to help whereever I can.
With all the traveling I do, its the one thing I can always make time for (especially wheb away from a computer/the Internet).
