Hi John,

It wasn't meant with disrespect, I was just responding to what I
thought Jeff's question was. I totally respect Jeff. I may feel a bit
frustrated in general, but not at Jeff. If I'm going about this the
wrong way, I completely appreciate the constructive feedback (that
you and Jeff are giving).

Got it. From my perspective, I was (albeit erroneously) hoping to get
feedback from the IA/Design people. I even indicated by name who I
was hoping would respond (Jeff wasn't on that list).

Fair enough. And Marketing too, as Isaac pointed out. As a result, I
think Finance and Marketing should have a bit of cross communication
about the questions.

DesDev is not just Development, but also IA and Design. I was really
trying to get the discussion far enough along that IA could start
tackling their piece. I'm learning. Next time I'll try to avoid
approaching DesDev with questions that could better be answered by
another group. My apologies.

And if I do it again, maybe someone will speak up sooner and point it
out to me (please)?

>Does this help at all?  I'm tired, so apologies if it doesn't

Sure. Thanks.
