INN Member Website Review: October 2015

My review this month of the 100+ INN Member websites shows a very healthy community. Among them I found thousands of examples of insightful reporting, excellent storytelling, and engaging design. As with any sample of 100 websites there are bound to be things we might improve. I’d like to suggest three priorities we could work on together over the next year.

What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt You…Unless You Don’t Ask

When talking with people we believe know much more than us about a given topic, we sometimes minimize our knowledge up front. Saying “I don’t know much” is a smart strategy if we suspect the expert will act like a jerk in response to our question. I can safely say that none of the INN Nerds will ever treat you this way.
