  1. Lee — you and i have a lot in common, as i am the husband of 6 and father of one — “one mayo clinic” that is!!!

    yours truly

  2. I’m at a reunion right now with my five wives. I’m twittering from the couch. Soon I’ll be twittering from the kitchen. I happened upon your facebook site and just had to enter this conversation. Actually I’m in jail right now, polygamy charges. Are you the same Lee Aase who used to work with the governor of Minnesota?

  3. I stumbled on this site – it has a wealth of information!
    I am looking for case studies or information on INTERNAL government blogs. Any chance you might be able to point me to some information in this topic?

  4. I can say that domain names with dashes like your’s “social-media-university-global” treated by Google and others like spam domains…

  5. That’s interesting. I don’t think that’s correct, because if you search for Blue Shirt Nation in Google, for instance, a post I wrote comes up in the top 5. The post by one of the guys actually responsible for Best Buy’s Blue Shirt Nation is lower than mine. And if you search for Best Buy Blue Shirt Nation I come up #3. So I’m going to do a post about this and invite feedback from others to see if they can confirm what you’re saying.

  6. Absolutely amazing, Lee! I somehow stumbled upon this site this afternoon. Very impressive, Great work!

  7. Wow Lee this is great i hope to keep more intouch with you and the family this way. I did just like you said and googled your name and im glad i did. i just want to say wow
