In other words, don’t be such a fuddy duddy. Business isn’t all ones and zeros. All you have to do to prove this point is to try it. Post a few personal messages for your Twitter and Facebook followers and see what happens. But, be careful. You can go too far. After all, it’s still business.

    [Blog] The Human Side Of Local Search
    About Us What’s a Maverick? » The Human Side Of Local Search Frank Reed has a thoughtful post at WebProNews about Bing, Google, and Local Search. His premise is interesting and it leaves me wondering. He says that Bing can lead in local search by being the “anti-Google.&# I was particularly struck by this paragraph: So spend the money you have wisely by investing in the human side of the Internet. Hire people to be city managers. Let them earn the right to hire more sales people and be entrepreneurial in their market but with the backing of a Goliath like Microsoft.

And I have never had my blog go on strike before. used the SOPA Strike plugin to do so (after testing it as well as a couple of others). So if you were here yesterday, you’ll remember the splash page that told you why we were dark and which asked you to join the protest. Now, I’m not your typical “striker” (though you’ve probably figured that out by now). The last time I went on strike. was when I was in drama school. So we went on strike.
