There have been some excellent comment conversations going on over the past week you might have missed…
The first is via Jessica D.’s winning essay from the TAFTO 2006 essay contest. Her piece has sparked a good discussion surrounding issues of ticket price & attire. It also garnered a wonderful comment from one of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra musicians that was on stage during the concert that inspired Jessica to enter the essay contest: http://adaptistration.com/2006/05/tafto_2006_essa.html#comments
The second is related to the issue of what constitutes a “core audience”. Cumulatively, the comments are more than twice as long as the actual article: http://adaptistration.com/2006/04/tafto_2006_afte.html#comments
Finally, the issues of executive compensation and accountability once again generated a good deal of thoughtful reaction from readers: http://adaptistration.com/2006/04/sometimes_surpr_1.html#comments
In all of these comment conversations, readers have been posting well after the article originally appeared. I’m still working on a way to include a “recent comments” section in the right hand navigation column, but until that is implemented I’ll always take the time to point out the protracted comments in this format.
