I finally got around to my copy of The Age of Conversation and was amazed at the various takes on the subject matter.
So many great chapters, so many money quotes (Greg Verdino’s "…digital and analogue conversations are two parts of the same whole." received an out-loud "Amen" from my lips). A few other great chapters:
- Being a Give + Take Marketer by
Matt Mark Goren
- Shut Up by Spike Jones
- Creating Video Conversations by Nicholas Wright
- Sharing by Jessica Hagy
- B2B Social Media: Don’t Monkey Around by Scott Monty
- Want to Change the Organization? Change the Conversation by Steve Roesler
- The Lowered Fence of Collaboration by Steve Woodruff
Because of this project, I’ve been introduced to many new voices. I’ve created a Grazr widget (check the sidebar) so you can explore their sites and subscribe to their RSS feeds.
