Photo Matt has summarized the crux of our li'l online community very nicely I think:
One thing I’ve found in the past year is there is sometimes a huge disconnect between people who make noise on blogs, or might have impressive blogs themselves, and productivity in the real world. It’s unfortunate, becauses it makes it that much harder to find good folks.
FWIW I'm as guilty as anyone... blogging is fun... but as the saying goes, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, blog."
