Long story short I was astounded at their dismissive attitude.
Listen just because something is not very sophisticated or hi tech does not mean it is not a good idea.
In fact it begs the question if many of us are missing out on obvious and simple basic processes that get the job done just because they seem too easy?
Do we try and make the job more sophisticated than we need too, for example I was looking on a blog at someones mind map for a traffic process recently which was just looked like the 'Matrix' or something and all I could think is why make it so complicated.
Anyway I would rather do easy peasy any day if it works ... let's keep our minds open!
