<ed.note>I find it rather odd and strangely tragic that while “secular” colleges,
universities, and education institutes of all stripes continue to adopt web-based open source,
collaborative tools I have yet to correspond with one missionary who isn’t resistant to their
adoption. I’m cynical so I assume its just enlightened self-interest  on missionaries’ parts —
eg, fear of job loss — but I assume that over time missionary senders will get savvy to the more
efficient ways to spend their social outreach and evangelistic dollars.</ed.note>
