One Man & His Blog

#likeminds - Coupons are not conversation

A restaurant run for Twitterers. A hotel with blogger specials. They make you feel special. They make you feel part of a community.

We love feeling special. [Chris Brogan](http://www.chrisbrogan.com/) is *entertaining* us.

Paraphrasing: What we can do with Twitter is live in search.twitter.com. 60% of my time is there. Are you connecting with people, or are you just blurting stuff out… People are surprised when you reply. That’s a competitive advantage over the other social media blogger turdheads? WTF!
“All social media is not so much about the technology as about remembering to be human.”
Mr Brogan, it should be noted, is one of those wonderfully rambling, anecdotal speakers who defy live blogging. You should have been here. 🙂
