""Creative Team" is the term businesses tend to use, whether referring to an in-house group or to an outsourced agency.

Thanks for the linked-in connection. I really don't know what to do with Linked-In. It seems so much for business concerns, and doesn't relate to the service stuff that I can do. Since I've been such a lone-wolf, I'm not sure Linked-In can do anything for me and my livelihoods. Pretty much nobody knows what Alexander Technique is here on the Big Island of Hawaii, and it's not anything that can be made into a "product" other than to write or talk about it. Learning Alexander Technique by yourself is sort of like trying to learn a musical instrument in isolation - inherently and needlessly fraught with pitfalls!
you asked: I see one of your posts somewhere on the deBono site re joining with a small group of people to get the CoRT thinking skills into the education system in Australia. I can't seem to find the post anymore.
Yes, one of the stranger features on this sort of forum is when someone unsubscribes, their posts are deleted wherever they contributed AND the threads that they started are also deleted. This feature also deletes ALL of the contributions that are part of the people who replied to that person's thread - so now you know the risk to be replying to people's threads.
So that's where you saw something I'd written that is now gone. Graeme Allan was one of these people who was spear-heading this project, and he's gone off the site now. I'm a member of a few of his other websites he started for that purpose where he can be the head honcho, (because here he wasn't able to play well with others.) Probably he should have been a lawyer rather than a schoolteacher! But before he left, I gave him a heads-up about what you said in hopes that it would help his cause.
Thanks for that thought! If you like, I can lead you to where Graeme in undoubtedly continuing those projects in those websites...?
Yeah, somehow I lost the way to "approve" the comment you made earlier. Can't figure out how to approve it now, because I seem to have deleted the link from my email notification that it was waiting. The way to approve it seems to have disappeared, yet it's there, demanding attention under "Awaiting Approval". Go figure!
One of the little widgets you found I decided I wanted to use also. The map one is cool...and the poll one could also be useful... and the most useful was a text box that fits .html code, so I can put anything in it. Thanks for motivating me to search around for that. I'm sure I'll use it for something interesting at some point later.
Greetings Arlene! Happy to have you on board. Hope you have time to contribute to the fray. We're working on an FAQ how-to about how to work things around here too. For now, just ask if you have questions.
If you do contribute, it's also a good idea if you would change (under settings) to have yourself emailed about replies. It helps remind you to come back and read it when others have replied to what you wrote.
Looking forward to what you have to say here...! Welcome!
