Fred's network effectsBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // August 31, 2012 in Publishing
Half an hour ago, on the bus, on my phone, I read Fred Wilson's post from yesterday, Networks And The Enterprise.
Before I could finish it, I thought of two friends, a family member, and a prospective client who would want to see it. I emailed it out, and had two productive dialogues going before I got off the bus.
I don't know why this example of the power of blogging struck me so sharply today. Maybe I was a bit surprised that the time in transit was so productive.
But it's a familiar story. Posts by people writing about what they do everyday - particularly when the authors are acute observers like Fred who make a regular practice of communicating, both to share knowledge and to inventory and deepen their own - have so much more value than the crap you see on the branded media to which Twitter seems to be selling out.
