Workshops are not courses

Seth Godin Blog

Traditional courses, online or off, are linear. Traditional courses scale in a particular way. A course can be quite effective.

Of course they’re wrong

Seth Godin Blog

But of course, everyone else is right as well. It seems like our take on culture is that we’re right. We shake hands properly, use a napkin properly, speak up at events problerly and even greet one another on the street properly. When I’m in a foreign city, I’m always amazed at how (friendly/offputting/aloof/intimate) everyone else is. They’re the home team, so they’re even more right than I am.
