Dennis.  You ignorant slut.  :-)  Actually, NOT. I read this tonight, and it only made me more emboldened to finish what we started. You are pointing out everything we are working for...  everything we believe.  And everything we are making happen today.  It's premature to talk more about what we are doing with CAWW, but it is wonderful to know you share our passion. Which I kind of always knew you did.  So, thanks. 

P.S. I'm a huge fan of the Umair Haque book.  You can see everything I read on income equality on my Goodreads account. http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/11625304-susan?shelf=income-inequality

@dahowlett @ITSinsider blame your plug-in for the advert.  you missed my point entirely.  and oddly enough, I agree wholeheartedly with your culture comment. as would nearly everyone who watches this space.

Maybe the problem with social is you, Dennis?  jk.  Please don't conflate social media marketing with internal social collaboration as a wholesale indictment of the social phenomenon and its potential.  The SBC did a study last year that demonstrated there was essentially zero connection between the two.  http://slidesha.re/W3wJR4 I find this to be very true in practice on the social web as well.  You know, better than most, what drives change inside the enterprise is not likely to be a Marketing "campaign." Read Euan's book again.  And maybe all of these. http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2013/05/30/the-management-revolution-thats-already-happening/

Interesting hypothesis Jay. For your readers, if your company is not in the Index, simply sign up. We'd love to start collecting your data. The Social Business Index is a free tool to be leveraged for just this sort of purpose.

From our work in the Council, I will tell you that the more progressive (employee-centric, democratic, distributed leadership) organizations embrace social much more readily. The culture shift is the most difficult of all the challenges our members face. Where an organization sits on the spectrum favoring transparency, trust, sharing, and authenticity is a good indicator of social business success.

Very true. I have over 7K twitter followers, hundreds of facebook friends, and thousands are following me on Google+. I can guarantee a very, very small number of those people really know me. In addition, I go to the movies alone nearly every week. Social media is a broadcast filter for the life we're interested in exposing. I'm very, very sorry for Trey's family. (I did not know him) But his gift and legacy will be the humanizing influence he brought to the social community.

Hi Shel. As you know, these guys are friends of mine and it felt crummy to see the negative press unfolding. Happy to see the record corrected for everyone involved. Nice job. This incident will recede when the tide flows back into the sea of breakneck tech web reporting. Life's a Beach in startup world.

Ah, finally a post I can link to. http://bit.ly/gtHyyL I don't get the privacy thing. I'm one of those people who believes more good than bad can come of it, I suppose. I guess I'm numb to marketing having spent so much of my career involved in trying to attract the right buyers.
