A very cool thing happened yesterday – I made an introduction that would have been nearly impossible just a few years ago.
I ‘met’ Kim Cross last week on Facebook kind of randomly, but related to my Business 2.0 group. She noticed that I’m blogging about web strategy and had a few questions relating to a new job she was starting as online editor of a national magazine.
I ‘friended’ Jeremiah Owyang last week because he told me to on his blog – he’s one of a few that are experimenting with Facebook as an open(ish) networking/content-distribution platform. He’s also a web strategy blogger and has been at it much longer than I have.
So when Kim threw a couple questions at me, I answered them in my shoot-from-the-hip-with-no-evidence-to-back-me-up way. It occurred to me, though, that Jeremiah might have some ‘hard’ resources he could point to – and some thoughts of his own.
So I sent a message to the two of them (a relatively new messaging feature on FB). I did a quick intro and left it to them.
Jeremiah came through in spades and he blogged his response. Thanks Jeremiah!Pin It
