Friday Fun: Age of Conversation Meets Blogger Social!

01/25/2008

Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Question: What do you get when 103 bloggers from all over the globe collaborate on a book?

Answer: Age_of_conversation_george_2 Innovation, Fun, Mind Candy .. and New Friendships! The back-story of how a guy from the farm lands of America and a guy from "down under" inspired a global partnership among people from 24 states and 10 countries. What could have turned into a Tower of Bable is a cohesive and important book about the changing ways business must communication in this digital age. All of the  profits are being donated to the Variety Children's Charity.

The master minds behind Age of Conversation, Drew McLellan

 and Gavin Heaton, are challenging bloggers once more to work together to create Part II. They want our input on the content direction of the book - even if you don't want to participate as an author- add your vote on what you would like to read. Deadline for voting is Jan 31, 2008.

  • Marketing Manifesto  -or-
  • Why Don't People Get It?  -or-
  • My Marketing Tragedy (and what I learned)

For all the details about how to join the rag tag group of ultra cool folks (you don't have to write a blog or podcast or vlog or even a twit to play along) and the link to the survey go visit Drew!

I'm in! Are You?

Sidebar: I have just one question. Where is Curious "Age of Conversation" George?  When last seen Steve and C.B. and C.K. were showing him Manhattan.

Blogger_social_2008 All work and no play makes for a dull diva and divo! After working in the virtual wouldn't it be swell to toast an appletini or a Scotch or even a cup of the old java in the non digital world? CK thought so too. She's hosting the biggest non conference, or perhaps it's the first Blogger Social for her social media friends in NYC. We're going to skip the streets of Manhattan with people we've come to know through 140 character tweets and blogs vlogs and podcasts and of course blogs.

Deadline to sign up and run that plastic through the works is February 15th. For the nitty gritty details visit CK. Thanks to Mario Vellandi for the poster and to Mark Goren for the video .. I love them both!

I'm in! Are You?

P.s. Drew was a mastermind behind the social too.

Toby,

Thanks for promoting both Age of Conversation (deux) and Blogger Social.

Both are about collaboration and community. Who can argue with that?

I was waiting for George to visit me here in Sydney ... but hopefully I can pick him up at Blogger Social. There are a few folks here who would love to meet him.
