I was alerted earlier by good friend Todd Defren, that I have been included in the Alltop index of top sites on the Web.
Wow, thank you! I don’t know what to say. It’s a pretty incredible group of voices and I’m more than flattered to be included.
So, allow me to officially introduce Guy Kawasaki‘s latest startup, Alltop.

I guess I must have been running a bit too fast lately, because I missed the fact that “The Social Media Manifesto, The Future of Corporate Communications,” made the finals for THE SEMMYS. Had I known, I would have asked for your help during the voting process 😉
THE SEMMYS tracks and ranks the year’s best posts in search engine marketing. Quite honestly, I was happy to be included in the finals. The manifesto finished as a runner up to “The Social Media Manual: Read Before You Play,” by Muhammad Saleem, Search Engine Land.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you have been presented a case as to whether or not the Social Media Release is nothing more than a Meatball Sundae – a term created by Seth Godin to visualize the mixing of two great ideas into something not so tasty.
It’s cute to say the least, but unfortunately, cute doesn’t cut it.

I participated in the PR Do’s and Don’t’s session at Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas. I have to say that this was one of the smartest panels I’ve had the opportnity to join in a while. Everyone just got it!
Facebook isn’t the only online aggregator that contributes, defines, and showcases your online brand. Everything we produce and share is online and readily discoverable, not just by friends and family, but business associates, customers, prospects, clients, etc.
You’d be surprised what people see, remember and in turn, share with others.
Stowe Boyd recently captured a unique observation in his short post, “With Apologies to Henry Davied Thoreau,” where he warned, “Beware of any undertaking that requires editing your Twitter stream.”

I’ve been following Chris Messina‘s and Stowe Boyd’s discussion on creating pseudo channels for Twitter. I find this extremely interesting because the volume of users and tweets are well beyond overwhelming it it makes it difficult to track, discover, and participate in relevant and interesting conversations.
Messina and Boyd aren’t talking about groups as we know them in other social networks per se, but more along the lines of parsing information to specific assemblies of people around a common topic. This is sort of along he same track as Channels on Jaiku, but more of a user-driven magnifying glass into conversations specific to communities.
