    I wonder if there is topic overlap between this and the “tools and advocacy” session that was proposed by Tad Suiter. As I wondered aloud there, it seems from this scholar’s perspective that “convincing” and “pitching” is a variation of “evangelizing.” No, I mean it in a more technical sense, although it is an interesting parallel, as I suggested. In any event, I think this is a worthwhile discussion.

  2. Yvonne, I think there really is! I’ll be interested to hear your take on this in person. I wonder what we could (seriously) learn from missionary approaches, in addition to sales/VC approaches.
