Second Life

You've all read about it and perhaps even visited. Some of you may have found a second home in the Second Life universe. Greg Verdino left a frank and fair post on marketing in Second Life at MarketingProfs. I linked to his blog here and gave my input. I can only hope it adds to the conversation. It's based on personal experience in the metaverse. I'm curious to see if there is any response. If not - no big deal.

Those who know my postings - albeit sporadic these days - rarely see a negative comment. I look for possibilities as I stumble through technology. I'm not classified as a geek by any means though I consider myself a quick study. Those familiar with CK's blog and collage will find my reason for blogging is learning. Part of the beauty in blogging is the ease and simplicity of the interface. Its also the beauty in a number of social networks I frequent.

Thinking out loud I wonder often about how we can market on social networks and what it means in the long run. At some point we monetize the time we spend and the actions we take. I continue enjoying the ride.

Added 01.08.2007 - and excellent list of links to Second Life hype and a challenge to the size of community it touches.

Church of the Customer

Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba release their second book and blog it here. MarketingProfs - and CK - kick off a book club here.

What I really like about this roll out (announcement) is the coordination between bloggers. Blogging is so huge yet so small. I note a couple familiar names in comments. The chance to share insight on timely writing should not be missed. One never knows the discoveries that are waiting.
