  • @euaccess interesting. Would love to see how you’re going to do the UI on that in reply to euaccess #
  • sitting in Sumaya’s Twitter workshop – impressively full large room! Lots of Tweet hunger here at Sun, I guess. #
  • never fails. My phone rings only when I can’t answer it. #
  • getting started #sunsocialyou #
  • #sunsocial you 200 Facebook communities. But can we measure activity there meaningfully (and easily)? #
  • Shel Israel on Twitter for Business – LIVE at Sun 5/19/2009 – Socially Speaking on Blog Talk Radio http://bit.ly/Wm7Ir #
  • #sunsocialyou Shel Israel is very tanned #
  • #sunsocialyou comforting to know I’m not the only one who suffers from really poor timing #
  • Scoble was Shel’s 4th choice as co-author on “Naked Conversations”. #
  • damn. I guess I’ve been recreating Scoble’s Channel 9 at Sun. http://blogs.sun.com/video/ #
  • #sunsocialyou book as means to protect/extend personal brand. Yup. You sure don’t make money at it. #
  • #sunsocialyou Fundamental shift: moving customers to the center of the conversation. #
  • @templedf make sure it gets filmed. #CommunityOne #Hadoop #GridEngine in reply to templedf #
  • #sunsocialyou “Twitter lets you behave online more like you behave in real life.” No one starts a conversation with a sales pitch. #
  • #sunsocialyou well, almost no one. #
  • #sunsocialyou “Twitter is broad and shallow.” #
  • pondering how my job is different from Sumaya’s. For one, I am not professionally obliged to follow Scoble. #sunsocialyou #
  • @davewiner so create it. I’d join. in reply to davewiner #
  • Twitter as hybrid of IM and forums #sunsocialyou – yes, but Twitter’s not anonymous #
  • Shel: I don’t have to listen to anybody I don’t want to #sunsocialyou #
  • uh oh, kiss of death: Sumaya called Shel a “social media guru”! #sunsocialyou #
  • Shel: “I talk to a lot of people, share what I learned. A guru is supposed to make no mistakes, I make a lot.” #sunsocialyou #
  • huh. Twitter spam almost never happens to me. #sunsocialyou #
  • #sunsocialyou question from my bud Yvette: are Twitter et al replacing real-life relationships? [Not for me – I have made many new friends] #
  • announcing today: for 1st time, Comcast customer support is no longer in the worst 10 list. Because of Eliason on Twitter. #sunsocialyou #
  • Leverage social media to share support info to a larger audience – been there, done that: http://bit.ly/N621e #sunsocialyou #
  • learning from your customers online – yup. I never had a great idea that didn’t come from a customer. Okay, rarely. #
  • using Twitter to broadcast to customers. DellOutlet has 200k followers. But Shel recommends using Tw more for marketing than sales #
  • me reacting: the fallacy of non-techie older users. the most enthusiastic & adventurous users of CD-R software were retirees. #sunsocialyou #
  • IBM has 1000 people Tweeting, bcuz: 1. 30-35% of employees telecommute, using Tw to communicate (public) 2. IBM sees itslf as tech consult #
  • 3. enormous cultural problem due to diversity, using Tw as unifier of Blue culture 4. have own hacked version inside firewall #sunsocialyou #
  • Twitter for newbies. Useful, if not for me. #sunsocialyou #
  • tweetbacks.com possibly useful – must look into it. But how many people use Tw clients instead of website? #sunsocialyou #
  • @Dereks what is Blue culture? whatever IBM thinks it is, I guess #sunsocialyou in reply to Dereks #
  • @lchoquel #Dollhouse is very cool. Not perfect, but I’m glad it will have time to develop. in reply to lchoquel #

  • in all modesty, gotta say: CommunityOne is gonna be great! Lots of very smart people putting a lot of work into it. #
