Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Awesomeness and Conversation

« Julien Smith, Trust Agents | Main | Google on a Roll: Sidewiki »


Thanks for leading me (via twitter) to Umair's Awesomeness Manifesto. I wrote an article of my own about why this is important in today's economy here:

@April - poets have always been the engine of motivation coming from the heart. I have a shelf dedicated to poetry in my library - in all languages and cultures. From Dante Alighieri, to RM Rilke, poets have spoken the truth they felt about their time and, by doing so, have enriched our lives. So thank you, for being a poet.

@Brian - very eloquently put.

@Peter - it took me a couple of days to reflect on what you say about awe and passion. Very good question: how do we help consumers honor their consumption? In a way, I think we do need to take a step back and relearn to appreciate (be in awe) after years of being taught about driving/acting/creating from passion.

@Boris - thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on awesomeness.

I love your blog. To identify what we are passionate about is a requirement to any human being. If we have not identified this, we should be working hard to find out what our passion is.
Once we indentify our passion, to work towards that goal will be totally enjoyable. A lot of people do a lot of things that they don't like trying to get money. Few fortunate people do what they love and money will follow sooner or later...
