The Fundraiser's All-Important 'Web'
As a spider, don't you build a web that grows over time? The common threads of interaction and relationships make all of us spiders. Each web grows over time and is very strong and complex. We hope to maintain people in our web forever, and in many cases, we develop relationships with generations of the same family. I am a firm believer that every development professional should attempt to build his or her own web each day.
I wonder if I can get a helmet with a spider decal on it like my grandson's.
