Hanging out at the Orange Conference has been unbelievable, in more than a few ways. I’ve met some amazing people who are super-excited about web technology and it’s use for the Gospel and their unique ministries.
But the vast majority of them are completely “handcuffed” by technology, and that’s unfortunate.
You see, technology is only as good as the freedom that it ultimately brings, to you as an individual and for the business and organization. Many of the leaders I’ve talked to in the last 3 days feel “hampered,” “limited,” “confused,” “frustrated,” and on and on and on.
This is especially damaging when there is a financial aspect to it, where they feel that they can’t do what they want to do because it either costs too much or they have to pay a large sum of money to 3rd party organization.
The bottom line is that there is definite wisdom in rethinking your strategy in terms of web technology the moment you feel the handcuffs go on. If your current web technology is cramping your ministry, time to get some new stuff.
