Thank you for including my post as an example. But more importantly, I am fascinated by the changes taking place in our industry as evidenced by that response you received. The entire field of avatars, clicks, retweets, and scores continues to dehumanize people, delivering the exact opposite results that most companies are seeking. I wonder when some people might understand that technologies might make up the online environment, but they are still driven by people.


which is why it's helpful to know what the agency doing your PR sounds like when you're not in the room, so to speak.

when nobody sees what you do, that's when you end up getting closer to genuine self. There is all this pressure to have the photo opp online, to display vs. be, etc. that ends up distorting the sense of proportion... a long conversation
