A couple of days ago I had a question where I did not find an answer directly.
Putting the question on Twitter did give no feedback, though I have seen that this is also often a good way to ask. But maybe my network there is not large enough.
Next step: Raised the question in LinkedIn Answers and directly to selected parts of my network.
Within one day, 4 responses via LinkedIn (2 from my direct network, 2 from people on LinkedIn) and one call from a friend of mine whose response was right to the point. Excellent.
Update: the question was:
what is leadtimes for packaging and distribution of software packages to PCs from ordering to deployment?
