It's a blog blog world

29 Oct 2003|Added Value

Last night I had the wonderful pleasure to share gobs of italian food with Dina Mehta and gang at Buca di Beppo. I know Dina via her blog and a few months ago we began a great converstion about how to inspire blogging within corporations. Unfortunatley we didn’t get much of a chance to explore this topic more thoroughly, but I’m ready when you are, Dina!

I was excited to meet more fans of Dina (and vice versa) but began to get a bit intimidated as I did my pre-dinner research… Phil Wolff has been blogging almost longer than I’ve been using email. Little did I know 2 months ago as I explained blogging at a company meeting and referenced his site, that I’d be sharing limoncello with the guy! (side note – Phil subscribes to 1000 RSS feeds – now I can justify my intimidation). And then there was Stuart Henshall who I see as another tremendous well of social network information and who gave me a very simple understanding of the business potential of skyping. Getting this applied at Cheskin will be one of my next personal projects (surprise Christopher ;-). While Clynton Taylor isn’t blogging yet, I’m sure he will be by the end of the week if any of us has anything to do with it!

Toward the end of the evening, Danah Boyd and her entourage joined us. Yikes – smart girl! Will enjoy seeing where you go and what you influence. I think my only advice may be that RedBull probably shouldn’t be your drink of choice.

Too many responsibilities have been keeping me from blogging. Thanks Dina and everyone for getting me excited again about the potential!
