My church is behind the times so is Time magazine

I hear it all the time from people I consult and work with.

Guess what, you’re not the only one in that position. So is my church. So are the churches that you look to as thought leaders.

So is time magazine!

Maybe I’m wrong and I’m going to get flamed for it, but I think if Mark Zuckerberg deserves person of the year it was 3 or 4 years ago not this 2010. Facebook did the work a few years ago that we are now seeing.

Or maybe it’s a lesson in the long tail.

  1. Vince:

    I know this is not your point, but I read an article a few weeks ago that said churches are actually leading the way in information technology compared to most businesses and other non-profits. Churches are famous for figuring out communication methods before others. Of course, that doesn't mean all churches do it, but newer churches are usually more cutting edge than large corporations.

    I will try and find the article.

    1. That's got to be true in at least a few ways. I can't tell you how many times i've submitted a feature request to a company and they tell me that its the first time they have heard of it.
