I spend a lot of time reading and disseminating information. For the most part, what I provide is summary information that I hope will alert the reader to issues that are being discussed and decided.

That process isn’t necessarily easy and it is time-consuming - in that someone must often wade through a ton of material just to see if an adopted item applies to their company.
