I have a friend from work (hi Danika!) who’s at the Blog Business Summit up in Seattle. Yesterday, I got an email from her right before my OBIABC Podcasting presentation saying “you just got mentioned by name like three times!”. Turns out it was in the session on mixing personal and professional in the blogosphere, with Robert and Maraym Scoble, Chris Pirillo and Ponzi, and Jory Des Jardins.
Janet Lee Johnson has a blog post about the session. I’m guessing this is the part where I got mentioned:
“[Chris is] saying that Intel should pull in people who really care about what they’re writing about (mentioning people who are blogging outside of Intel, and are Intel employees) because they have the passion, the street cred, and the chops that any corporation should be nurturing as bloggers.”
Thanks, Chris! My ego loves stuff like this! Seriously, though, it’s gratifying to see my efforts at putting a human face on Intel get recognized, and I hope it brings more Intel folks to poke their heads out of the firewall, and start talking.
And thanks to Janet for the liveblogging, and to Danika for letting me know, and making my day yesterday.
