I got mail

I was a bit surprised when I got e-mail about a past post After all, the daily readership of this blog is rarely hits double digits.
Hey Robert,

I remember reading your post last week mentioning the Wall Street Journal article arguing that there are as many 450,000 professional bloggers. I recently came across an item that indicates a more peculiar trend --some people are being hired as full-time, 40-hour-a-week Twitterers:

Anyway, I thought this was something you and your readers would find interesting.

take care,


Blogging, twittering, tweeting, youtubing, facebooking, myspacing, texting--the ways we communicate are changing. Last summer I attended a conference at DePauw University and was told that e-mail as a way of communication was old-fashioned. I thought my grandparents had experienced the greatest technological revolution early in the twentieth century with the internal combustion engine, the electric motor, and radio, but maybe the changes caused by the computer chip will be as profound.

Check the comments on a post on another of my blogs for an example of innovative advertising. I wonder if it is also effective.
