One thought on “January 2012 Research Plans

  1. Sounds great, and a wonderful idea to be (virtually) journalling all this. Good for you, but also good for those of us who are following you, and hoping to learn from your experience.

    How about some random conversations with owners (or staff) of some of those third places? Over coffee, of course . . .

    Here’s to 2012!
