Ever since I visited BlogTalk last year May in Vienna, I am sure that the networks we bloggers form have potential on a personal and business level.
Initiatives like BlogWalk (second event coming up on May 28th) and the Actionable Sense Troupe (can you suggest a better name?) are not only aimed at realising that potential but in themselves a proof of concept as well.
Tonight I will have dinner with Jon Husband, of Wirearchy, and one of the Actionable Sense gang, who is currently visiting Europe from Canada, together with Lilia Efimova and Elmine Wijnia.
Face to face meetings help strengthen the fabric of the networks we have woven, add value to it, and increase likelihood of working together. I’m looking forward to it!
