Digital channels and public affairs/politics

You are hereby granted permission to write clunkers. You are hereby granted permission to write posts that you don’t think are finished, and push publish anyway. […]

You’ve got a great voice (So much to give)

In 2007, Mitch Joel put out a call for a stinger for a regular segment of his Six Pixels of Separation podcast. He claimed he was looking for a Paul Shaffer like R&B piece. I loved the idea and decided to take a crack at hit. I had a bunch of ideas in my head […]

Are we reaching the late adopters, yet?

When it comes to social media, corporations and institutions are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. It’s no wonder so many decision-makers feel like they’re standing on a narrow island in the middle of a strange highway with cars zipping past them on both sides. Earlier today I blogged about Sanofi-Aventis and the […]

BookCampTO explored the publishing ecosystem

You can be excited by the way things will be or steadfastly attached to the way things have been. BookCamp TO was about embracing the potential of the book publishing industry and working towards a common understanding of the challenges that are being faced. And it worked.  I believe the success of BookCamp TO was […]

Ashoka’s Youth Venture a huge disappointment

A few days ago I called on my Twitter network to participate in a vote to help brothers Kyle and Brady Baldwin win $10,000 with which to buy and distribute 8,000 books to needy children through the My Own Book Foundation they set up when they were 14 and 16 years old (hear an interview […]

Open vs. closed system communities

Earlier today, Jeff Pulver asked the question “Where Have all the Comments Gone?” on his blog. I tend to comment on blogs in waves. It really depends on my availability to not only read the post, but the time and attention to comment in a way that contributes to the conversation. I prefer following blog […]

I am my brand

It’s not a new idea, it just took me a while to figure it out. I think I started thinking about it during Mitch Joel‘s presentation on personal branding. I am my brand. This changes my bio. I’ve removed the third-person bio from the About page on this site, and I’m working on a new […]

One time at PodCamp

From my sleeping bag on the floor of Room 813 at the Holiday Inn Express, Cambridge, MA. PodCamp is amazingly well organized.  The organizers have to be proud of themselves.  Sessions that were among the standouts based on an informal poll with Bob and Julien include C. C. Chapman and Mitch Joel‘s presentation You and […]
