The Half-Life of an Evangelism Gadget or Method

Half-life (t½) is the time required for a quantity to fall to half its value as measured at the beginning of the time period.  When it comes to evangelism gadgetry or methodology, it suffers the same exponential decay.  I’ve seen all the gadgets and all the methods.  I’ve seen them used and abused.  I’ve seen […]
