Today is Social Media Day (#smday). The occasion has inspired me to try something a bit different.
Why don't you share something about yourself -- right here on this blog?
Here's the motivation:
Even if you're only an occasional reader of this blog, you know something about me: who I am, what I do, how I look at the world.
I know almost nothing about you. That bothers me.
Not only that, I think you'd like to get to know each other.
When I occasionally meet people who say they read my blog, they're characteristically bright, passionate and insightful. I think you'd really enjoy each other's company.
Best as I can guess, there's about 10K-30K of you out there. Maybe many more -- the internet is a strange place.
Why not go to the comments below, and share anything you're comfortable sharing: name, occupation, hobbies, twitter handle, links to you web page or blog -- it doesn't really matter how much or how little.
Just take a moment to share something -- even a kind thought.
Even if you're a competitor and detest me (and I know many of you are), go anonymous if you'd like. It's OK, this one time.
I'd certainly like to know more about you.
And I think everyone else would as well.
