Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - 7 Observations and a Challenge to Marketing Types

« The Future is Now | Main | The Art of Receiving »


Great post as usual Valeria, you never cease to amaze me with your thoughts though I'd like to add some thoughts here. For me, "Real" depends on my gut feeling, and "Right" is only right when it's right... and yes, respect can be earned, but it also can be given. There is no time table for the latter, but there is for the former.

I'm not disagreeing, merely enhancing and adding to 7 very valid tenets.

By that one comment you have now convinced me that center truly is a direction :) Very insightful.

Everything I said was, of course, in jest. It was my oblique attempt at agreeing with your points on perspective and context. If I put my mind to it, I can find an angle to argue anything. But it's often pointless to do so. As you say, criticism is easy. Too many people take this easy road.

My readers may think I did not do my homework! Which of course I totally did, as you know. If we understood that center is a direction, we would all be much more balanced :)

Thank you for commenting, Paul. Always good hearing from you.
