« Attention Trust - Part 2 | Main | Exposing yourself in public »

December 15, 2005



Great point from Consultor about finding the balance between openness and consulting advice. I think the two can be separated because every 'use case' is different.

But then I wonder if, in this tiny conversation whether there has been mutual benefit? For me the answer is 'yes.' And I am prepared to struggle through with my 'poco Espagnol' in order to get there.

But then I'm not representative of all UK, only a very small but I hope important segment.

Thanks for the freebie, Dennis!! :-)

I blog for "El Blog Salmón" and I'd like to thank you for your kind mention.

I think there are two main barriers for companies to get involved into conversations:

* Conversations are held between people, and it is very difficult to have a whole company represented by a single person (even if he or she is the CEO). Only very small companies can get over this barrier.

* Companies are about earning money. How can you turn your conversations into money? It's difficult to be open and to offer as many information as possible for free (through conversations), and then try to get paid for it, at least in services companies.

That's my vision.
