It’s no secret that I’m easily distracted. So, what I’m about to say won’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me. This morning, while trying to catch up on email after my trip to Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas, a shiny object diverted my attention. This is usually a new piece of tech, but in this case it was a blog post. Hal Lublin wrote “I’m All In,” a post about some advice Chris Brogan gave him while playing in an Ante Up For Africa poker tournament that took place as part of the Blogworld activities.
Removing The Filters From My Online Conversations
In his post, Hal articulated something I had communicated with my wife over the weekend, that I need to remove a few of my “filters” when I’m online. While I’m certain that I am authentic in my online communication, I’m equally certain that I’m a toned-down version of my authentic self. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, and yet I left Blogworld wondering if removing a few of my self-imposed regulators might not be a good idea. Quite frankly, that thought scared my wife. She is warning me that I need to keep a few of them. And I certainly will.
Hal’s post resonated with me. So this afternoon I gave myself permission to be distracted by another shiny object and do a quick test of Wetoku to highlight his post. Wetoku occupied the booth across from the Mothers Fighting For Others table in the Expo hall and I was looking for a good excuse to give it a test. This qualified.
Let me know your thoughts on the conversation & the technology used to record it.
