Pete Townshend’s profile on Blogger is most excellent. His blog (which is a serialized novella) is pretty sweet, too. Far from the distanced, affected rock star, he’s right in there connecting with folks in the comments, responding, and having a conversation. Brilliant.
The community around this novella is phenomenal as well. Most chapters seem to have 150+ comments, a virtual book club.
Thought for the day: if Pete frickin’ Townshend can do this, and connect with the thousands (tens of thousands? more?) folks who are reading his blog, doesn’t it seem to be a pretty lame excuse when business execs say they don’t have time to connect with folks outside their organizations via blogs?
