Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - don_draper, TweetJeebus, and Staying in Character

« Slow and Fast in Digital Media | Main | Geoff Livingston, Now is Gone »


I was touched in similar fashion by the same scene in Mad Men, more as an exploration of the leaps creative brains can take in re-thinking a product or brand beyond the obvious to something quite remarkable and powerful. Blogged about it here:


I do advocate the integration of personal and professional for how you present yourself. It's a part of who I am and I can't carry the same amount of passion if I water myself down to much.

It might be a Gen-Y thing...

That's a lot of tough questions to answer! Should make for interesting conversation in the comments...

Personally, with respect to the question about how personal can you (should you) get? If it's not dining room table talk, then it probably shouldn't be said. Once it's been said, it's on Google forever! So keep that in mind too... Just my personal opinion.
