Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - I'm Not a Number but I Play one on Advertising Age

« The New Kind of Business Hero | Main | For Sale by Owner Excluded »


Cam -- the first comment on a provocative post is always the most welcome ;-)

David -- yes, I agree. And you're getting close, which is good. My post was written using AdAge as an example, of course. One close to home, admittedly. The question begs to be asked, as you did so aptly from the Web 2.0 and experience + story today. How are we going to play together, given that we come from two different places? I like Bruce's hands-on approach a lot.

Mark -- it is nice to be recognized. I want to emphasize that. As well, if it weren't for Todd's work, we would have no list to begin with.

Well, you're still numero uno in my book. As a former "ad guy," I always liked Adweek better than Ad Age... but... it's nice to be recognized. Congrats.


Being "ranked" has it's pros and cons. No one likes to be a "number" (unlesss it is uno)

But at the end of the day, even though I don't know how AdAge will use the list—I do think it provides blogs in this genre with a bit of credibility. Personally I believe that mainstream acknowledgment of blogs is a good thing.

Guess we will have to see if this has an impact.
