Can a company
 be “social”?
  A roundtable about “Blogs and business”
PiùLibri publishing fair, Rome, Dec 7th, 2007

     Alberto D’Ottavi – http://Infoservi.it
“Markets are conversations” (David Weinberger et al.)
• It’s an open, global market. And that conversations are already going on
Is it a language / content problem?
• Probably you simply need to find the right “book”…
Is it a problem of attitude?
• Probably you simply need to find the rigth style
  (and no, the CEO does not need to go mohican)
Somebody says it’s “corporate communication”

• Do we really have scientific formulas?
“Pr people can be a source of information,
but need some deprogramming” (Shel Israel)
