Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Framework for Change

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said "What good is it to be able to find people everywhere, when they cannot find their place of connection wherever they are?"
No matter how advanced the technology, we still need basic communications skills to get our message out there. There are too many well-crafted messages with poor technological execution in the marketing space - and vice versa.
I love Buckminster Fuller's quote as a reminder that we can't fight existing reality. Sometimes, it seems as if we're faced with so many obstacles out there in the business world - and we just can't seem to figure out why. Your thoughts and reminders are truly inspiring.

When I first started using social media I was overwhelmed. 10 gazillion ways to communicate – millions and millions of people – blogs, podcasts, tweets, digs, Facebook, My Space… I was crushed in a tsunami of information. Now I have waded through the storm and found my footing. I have found a few favorite places where I feel at home. When I go to those sites it is like visiting with friends (such as you Valeria). We have a conversation, we share ideas, we create connection. I then take what I have learned and bring it into my off-line social world – more conversations, more connections, more learning and sharing. I live in a fairly small town (Gainesville, FL) with a small group of friends and colleges but through our various connections on the Internet we bring the world to our conversations, making them richer, deeper and more meaningful then every before. The Internet gives the art of conversation a global palate to work from and endless possibilities on the canvas… how exciting and wonderful!
