      Editorial & Marketing 2.0: Thinking Digitally
    • “ Some of these conversations ended in a sale, but don’t let that fool you. The sale was merely the exclamation mark at the end of the sentence.” Markets Are Conversations , CLUETRAIN MANIFESTO http://www.flickr.com/photos/nic/230233024/
    • “At the very end of each book, the publisher printed letters from the readers as well as responses from the author himself. It was so informal, so warm…it made me feel like I knew these guys and they cared about what their readers thought. I was surprised at the time other books didn’t see what a great idea this was. I don’t know if I consciously remembered those books when I set out to do the Bullpen page years later, or if I was unconsciously influenced and only afterwards realized where I got the idea from. I do know that talking to the readers informally and indirectly seemed like the natural thing to do.” --Stan Lee http://bit.ly/d6onJk
