Re: How do you all feel about advertisements?

Scott and group,

My feeling is quite in line with yours, Scott.
Short plugs, "public service announcement" -- ok, "ads" -- about concerts,
technologies, dancers looking for work, coming to Europe, and so on are of
indeed of value to us.

Whether such notices are occasional or frequent, however, it would seem to
me, should depend on us -- That is, how much happened to be being offered at
the time. I do not think this little dance-tech world is yet to the point
where so many shows, products and services are going to be bombarding us
with offers.

When I offered our electrode sets for sale, for example, I did have some
mixed feelings, fearing that I might be somehow trespassing. But really a
lot of people responded and not only potential "customers". Many had tips
for us concerning technical aspects as some even concerning marketing. I
mean, we too must somehow survive in order to continue dance-tech-ing.

regards,
