"How do I compare ideas with other information managers?"

This subscriber is based in a mid-sized Midwestern city, with few local peers. Her travel budget is next to nonexistent. She's increasingly responsible for providing advice on information strategy - an exciting place to be in the business - and yet she feels keenly the strain of her limited options for sharing ideas, experiences and suggestions on such topics as vendor negotiations, current awareness delivery tools, analytics and copyright.
