COMMENT On This Article!

Here are some of your comments on our recent TNNW articles:

Karl Smith:
Are You Ready For The Network Economy?

"I found Karl's' article very interesting and enlightening. I believe he has pinpointed the new way of social and business interaction.The power of the individual continues to grow and be enhanced by the power of the information era. Information is power and the interaction between individuals grows this network-centered strategy."
- Corky Kyle, MPA, CAE "The Lobbying Pro"

"Totally agree with emerging trend but article fails to even touch the fact that many whether in business or professional firms don't walk-the-walk at creating and maintaining trust. There are few trailblazers and the others have to go down the road a bit for this trend to really take root. Some accounting firms that got it were written about in an article I edited at"
- Howard Wolosky

"simple formula to understand future trends."

- Chandraakant Dalal

Bill Doerr, Sales & Marketing:
Networking Without Trying

"An interesting blog article. As Bill Doerr (relaying the message from Colleen Ferrary) suggests, 'networking' thing should simply be about having a social life and building meaningful relationships. Sometimes this may include work, or be a basis for exploring professional coincidences.

"Any business would do well to absorb its people's social networks and learn to interact with them in a relaxed setting. A most recommendable approach might combines online and offline networking, by organizing (and promoting) 'fun' events, such as may bring together a group of people with common interests and goals in a relaxed atmosphere.

"With more and more online activities and obligations, people seem to pay less attention to (and time on) their 'real life' interactions, and use what settings they may help create for advancing their business -- at theme events, trade fairs (including, just as visitors), social clubs, biz clubs, charities, sports clubs, etc."
- Rick Beets

"When I see two people in adjoining cubicles texting each other I begin to wonder, would a power failure make us all deaf, mute, and blind?"
- James Forman

"Thanks for posting....great concept. New technology can make the 'real' old-fashioned relationship building and social networking too impersonal. Why not use our latest wave of technology as a means to engage with real people in real places. It is so much more satisfying!"

- Patty Thompson

Rick Itzkowich, Being There When it Counts:

How "edgy" are you?

"Hi Rick
i am definitely Edgy 1- my definition is (impatient- nervous- apprehensive)
would also like to think that i might be, from time to time, edgy 2
Not very often do i ask for permission- I often have to ask for forgiveness- edgy1 you see
my father was (also?) the autocratic type- he knew better all the time, my mother on the other hand the accommodating - forgive you- type .Their marriage had a similar ending ..
nice to have me think about these things
- George Dakos

"Hi Rick! I'll prove the theory you presented. I'm definitely #2. I don't fear much except taxes & death, I am not held back, I don't have doubts, I don't do the 'what if' thing.

"I don't like 'descriptions' of people - like the word 'edgy' - bothers me - but, has given me some thought. I guess I never thought of the word 'edgy.'

"Count me in! Interesting question."
- Debra Bankes

Truer words were never spoken - I agree we all aspire to being creative, cutting edge and want to lead the change...but then we have a family a mortgage, and responsibilities. The real need is to combine the unbridled creativity and risk taking with the thoughtfulness of an edgy#1. Rick's mom & dad must have been successful in this way. Business is no different - we need both aspects to win. For leaders that are edgy#1 - you better go find your mate and visa versa!"
- John Aceti

The disadvantages of being edgy are that you are running too fast leaving other members of the team behind and these are people who want to have a safe quite life, who are saying: 'you have too much energy for our team, we cant handle your enthusiasm'"
- Irina Kremin

Douglas Castle, This Might Hurt
Show 'em Your Briefs - The API™ Approach
As an attorney specializing in administrative law and regulatory compliance we were taought to be wordsmiths in our briefs, direct and to the point in questions.

"My avocation is logisitics operations management in which verbal and written communication require in most cases short brief communication.

"I can attest to the truth and accuracy of Douglas' premise."
- William Downey, JD
