Seriously, I openly work in what I can when I teach and train. I try to explain on-line but find it remarkably difficult, especially when I've got someone on the other end saying "that's what I already do". Maybe they are, maybe they aren't, I have no way of knowing. And then the conversation usually degrades in to stupid arguments. So I save it the mat mostly and just have general conversations on-line. Those who wish to do different stuff, cool, fine with me. Those who say they're doing the same stuff, okay, great, best wishes.
Worth repeating - that mirrors my experiences, and it's a good summary of why I don't usually talk about anything technical, conventional or not, in this medium (although I'm certainly free to do so, if I choose!).

Best,

Chris
