Discussing Putting the Public Back in Public Relations with Loic Le Meur

I recently visited the gorgeous San Francisco offices of Loic Le Meur and Seesmic to discuss his company’s roadmap, photography, how to build online communities, as well as my new book with Deirdre Breakenridge ,”Putting the Public Back in Public Relations.” Loic suggested that we spend a few minutes discussing the book on camera to share with the Loic.tv community.

It’s the balladry of transcending online connections into real world relationships. It’s the cadence of interaction and the poetry of conversations that empower the human network and the escalation of the Social Economy.
