Hump-Day Links (7-25-2007)

A few interesting things are going on.

Forget about me. Let's talk about you.
I like David Armano's effort here to turn the "8 Random Things About Me" meme on its head. Instead, he's asking for "8 Random Things About You." I've now been tagged twice, and I've determined that people really don't want anything "random," but "interesting," or else we'd know the shoe sizes, eye colors and dirty secrets of a whole lot of bloggers who have participated. If you've been tagged, go over there and support this effort.

Drew McLellan. Man or Superman?
This guy is tenacious. In addition to his participation on his own blog and The Age of Conversation, Drew posts at Marketing Profs: Daily Fix, Iowa Biz, Small Business Branding, and Branding Wire. Drew, am I missing anything?

Oh yeah. He just runs his own marketing agency that publishes its own newsletter.

You're the man, Drew. You're the man, indeed.

Quit Being Such a Wuss
After reading posts or comments by Stephen Denny, Ryan Karpeles, and Lewis Green (not to mention Ann Handley, Mack Collier, David Reich and others), impeaching us to get off the fence and take a side already, Brian Clark of Copyblogger comes out and writes a brilliant treatise on the subject. Check it out.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving
CK is giving out copies of The Age of Conversation to heads of marketing for several companies her readers felt desperately needed to read it. My pick? Wal-Mart. If CMO Stephen Quinn responds intelligently to the gift, I will fall out of my chair.

I have a lot of respect for Wal-Mart (as my comments over at Lewis' blog will show). Here's hoping I fall out of my chair.

The Flavor of 102 Geniuses
Steve Woodruff did an amazing job summarizing the chapters in The Age of Conversation. Check them out.

A taste from A-D

A taste from E-J

A taste from K-R

A taste from S-Z

Yes, I realize there are 103 authors. Don't rub it in.

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
Last week, I started a tagline meme and called it "optional." I tagged Roger, Lewis, Tim, Paul, and Mack. So far, none have responded.

I was just kidding about the "optional" thing, guys. Snap to it. ;)

It was a stars aligning sort of day on Wednesday when I had posts on all the different blogs on the same day.

Fortunately for my sanity, with the exception of Drew's Marketing Minute, I only post on the others a few times a month.

Probably good for my reader's sanity too!


Dude, I swear I'm gonna do this... I promise. No, really, I mean it. Did I mention I've been swimming in work? Well, I have. But don't let my personal anguish get in the way... I'll be ok... eventually.

I'll do this, I promise.

Before you send out your henchmen, I finally followed through on my threat to post 5 Taglines. I hope you're happy now!
