Trains, Stations and Communication

I like to compare CiviCRM to a train leaving the station.

It has mass, it has momentum, it is on a track and its basic direction is set.

But even among trains, there are significant differences. When you travel on a TGV out of Paris, if you're not on the train when it leaves the station, your not going to get to your destination. Period.

If you travel on the stereo-typical India National Railways local, it looks something like this:

That is kind of how we envision CiviCRM. It moves slowly, people jump on and off, as long as you don't mind riding on the roof for awhile, you are welcome to join us.

Lest people mistake the intent of my last post, we have no intention of leaving anybody behind. But the train is moving.
