Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - If a Tree Fell in the Forest

« It's Not About the Logo | Main | The Big Picture »


Roger -- we'll be talking this week. Promise. What I liked about Gestalt was actually meeting Bill Loftus. Online is not a substitution for face to face, it's just an extension, a way to have a broader reach.

Liz -- I owe you a call soon as well. Although open mic nights allowed me to get to know you and your friends much better, talking is a better way to have a sense of the other.

When I started blogging, I did on a promise that I would continue to connect ideas and people, because talk can and does change our lives. Back before New Year, I did a fun post on Horoscopes, which was designed to introduce stars in our network. I am currently working on projects with some of those people and look forward to telling those stories.

I'm with Roger. I find that a chance to talk allows for so much -- pacing and nuance and laughter.

Connecting is more than collecting.

Valeria, you did such a wonderful post showing how much. Thank you for that.

Interesting topic, interesting tools.

You know, when it comes down right to it, my favorite thing about blogging (one of your tools), is picking up the old-fashioned telephone and talking with some of the people I've met in the blogosphere. A lot of walls come down when I do this, and you get a much better sense of the person.
