      Jim – Thanks so much for writing. The Network that was on for a few years was free. Once they started charging a ridiculous fee for it, I dropped out, particularly because Google+ does a much better job anyway. Having said that, I will drop you an email because we have a few thriving crisis communities on Google+, a much better interface than Ning. I’d also love to have you as a guest on the show so will be in touch soon. Thanks again!
