I don't think I've ever met Dale Olds but I find him incredibly perceptive & insightful. His reviews of bloggers are always well thought out and reasoned. Dale is both 'distinguished' and an 'engineer', a combination rarely seen in nature.
When Dale recommends a particular blogger, I pay attention and typically spend a good hour or two clicking through that blogger's archived posts (making sure to click on every post title please).
And with respect to a future definition of an evolved OSIS acronym, I humbly suggest 'Open Social is Superfluous'.
