William,

thanks a lot for putting this together. This is really helpful, I really 
appreciate that it's very concise.
David, I think that pathways is a much better term, the funnel model 
applies more to sales organizations, whereas pathways is closer to what 
we do as community builders

Thanks,

Rosana

Let us know if 'pathways' doesn't feel like an improvement and feel free to edit any funnels references you come across on the wiki or anywhere else.
