I do wonder how well the White Wolf of the 90's would navigate the social media of the 2010's.
Excellent points Eric. I do think that old White Wolf would have had a much more difficult time had they had to dealt with the social media of today. I do think however that they still would do better than the current White Wolf is doing. I just think the current guys are trying too hard. I don't think that they're bad people, just that they lack experience doing what they do.
