Greg Sterling For President

So I spoke on my assigned panel today at the conference and it was a blast. I just wish we would've had another 3 or 4 hours to talk about the impact of blogs, online word of mouth and rss are going to be on local advertisers and the net in general. There is so much that is yet to be charted by anyone and it's really an exciting time. There is so much going on right now that nobody's come up with a great business model or even the best business model for connecting advertisers to bloggers to social networks to local markets to end users. MAN I love this stuff!

On a different note, I really can't say enough good things about Greg Sterling or The Kelsey Group in general, even if John Kelsey and I differ on our opinions of what bloggers and journalists have in common and how they should be treated :) Greg has introduced me to so many people in such a short period of time and every one of them has said "e;If Greg says you're someone I should know then you're someone I should know". Man what a good feeling that is.

Greg takes the term "Word Of Mouth" to a whole new level. He's genuinely humble and is more embarassed about being complemented as I am. He's the first to admit that he's not a smart guy, even though he is, but everyone around him knows the truth and likes him for being so humble. Anyway, I'm just glad to know him and hopefully he and I will still talk now that he's seen me in action on stage haha.
