Adaptistration Poll: RSS Preferences

Last week, a reader contacted me asking about why Adaptistration doesn’t use full length posts in its RSS feed. A thoughtful exchange ensued and as it has been some time since I last surveyed readers on the topic, it seemed as though the best course of action would be to poll current readers on their RSS habits and whether or not they have any preferences with regard to feed length and format…

Note: Voting remains open though the afternoon of Sunday, March 30, 2008.

Thanks to Kim Witman over at Wolf Trap Opera Blog for polling her readers on the same topic a few months ago – combined with the results from this poll, the responses should be enlightening!

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
