So my friend Brian just called me up. He works for Consulting Magazine and is helping to lead their web efforts. I've been trying to introduce him to this whole blogging phenomenon, and, short of reading my own, I'm not so sure he "got it" until today. He was doing some competitor analysis, which led him to ring me and ask, "Are you familiar with RSS?"
Brian went from being a good journalist to an even better salesperson. He knows his field very well, and he certainly helped me a ton by editing my Stanford essays. But, he's never been a cutting edge tech guy, and its very meaningful to me as a milestone that RSS has found its way into his vocabulary.
Bagel breakfast is on Brian tomorrow, since he'll be picking my brain about what this is all about. At the moment, I'm at DTUT writing the outline for the blog career book. This is all gaining traction very quickly.
