I had hoped someone who knows Mike personally would start this thread because they would be able to list his accomplishments and give those of us who only know him from this forum, a better idea of where he is coming from with his answers. He did agree to do this forum thread when he answered a poster on another thread:
i'd be willing to do it provided people don't expect answers within minutes or even hours, as I work all day and don't have a lot of ability to be spending time here. As for David, well, David and I are pretty good friends and i've actually tried to model my on line behavior on his to some degree. I haven't always succeeded....
I thought about titling the thread "Ask Mike Most Anything (about workflow), but that would have been using only part of his knowledge base because as someone who works deep within the industry, he knows many things that go beyond workflow.
To the newbie, I do not know if he will "suffer fools", like you and me. If you have thick skin, ask your question. The Q & A will find it's own level and even if we do not get our questions answered to our satisfaction, then maybe someone more knowledgeable will strike up the conversation that gets us going in the right direction.
