    Further in reply to Joe's post and specifically to his comment, "How
    about thinking of this 'penetration' just in terms of the motivated
    individual involved in a motivated task group" &c.

    Am I wrong in thinking that many, well qualified, motivated
    individuals ought be found among retired executives? Experienced, no
    longer caught up in the rush of things and no longer beholden, the
    enjoyment of peer company and, yet, ready to fan out into wider slice
    of society, good listeners, etc. Could't people like these make a
    strong force for helping build momentum?

    And if I am not wrong, how do we best capture their interest and
    commitment? I guess that some people must already have thought of
    this; what are their experiences with this track?
