Update: For some reason, this is one of the most popular recent posts on my blog.

I noticed Chris when I was walking through National Airport in D.C. yesterday. Sitting at Starbucks, he was writing in an old-fashioned ruled journal with a fountain pen. Nearby, at the ready, was his ink-stained blotter. At the adjacent table was another guy with, predictably, an open laptop.

I was so astonished that I circled back and asked if I could

Update: I've just received my invite. I'm member #505 of Seth Godin's Triiibe on Ning. Not sure why there are three "i's" but looks good.

 You've got until 11 AM Eastern July 30, 2008. Follow Seth's instructions here. As I understand it, you need to pre-order his new book: Tribes: We Need You To Lead Us, to be published in October. Forward the email receipt to him. Then wait for your exclusive invite. Hope I get one. As always with

My new integrated blog / site went live today. The first thing you'll notice is the lack of clutter. The talented folks at Viget convinced me that less is more.

I wake to dense fog cocooning our little house. All is not quiet, however. I can hear a fog horn punctuating the distance. A gull caws. Someone is hammering. A car goes by.

Our cottage is not as remote as I'd like (it's on the edge of town) but it's ours, all ours. And a place to think and read and write.

Wom_andy_2 My friend Andy Sernovitz had the clever idea of offering a one-day "crash course" in WOM (aka word-of-mouth marketing) in his home town of Chicago. The first one is coming up July 30, 2008. More info and other dates here.

Andy is the author of Word of Mouth Marketing and was founder of WOMMA (Word of Mouth Marketing Association). He's a great speaker and I expect this will be a fun as well as substantive event. He calls it "an
