Hey Jannette, great article. You're right about the limitations regarding entering the initial search query. You sort of need a keyword research tool that will make suggestions based on what you type in.
Also you probably want a basic interface like mention.net but with an advanced option to allow people put in their boolean search query!

Hey Shonali, have a great break, I think in the US people don't take enough breaks. Breaks can be really productive as you come back with fresh ideas and feel refreshed. I was blogging 2 days a week and now moved to 3 days - Monday, Wednesday and Friday!! I thin that will work really well!!!

Great post DJ, I love it. For the first 1000 subscribers on my blog I committed to sending a personal response to everyone that signed up. To make sure they believed it was personal and not an auto responder I told them the time and what I was doing at the time (e.g. it's 1 O'clock and I'm sitting at my desk eating lunch!). I got into so many interesting conversations with people and I got so many responses saying 'wow', 'I can't believe you responded' etc etc. It's hard to keep this up but why not do it for the first 1,000!! As you say be human!!

Hey Brent, I don't think we'll ever see google partnering with klout. Bing is struggling to be different and if I was in Bing I wouldn't have signed off with something that's very flawed in it's nature!

I agree 100% with you. Google + is not just a social network it's a foundation layer for everything that google is doing going forward. If you don't start building a Google + presence now you'll fall way behind and it will take a long time to catch up!

Nice touch! I'm always nervous of giving people full RSS access to our content in case it gets copied in places that you don't want it to be copied. I wonder if there's a way of allowing limited rss access to specified sites...mmm, I'll check it out.
It's difficult for traditional PR companies to operate in a digital world as they need to have an understanding of technology. I assume they didn't realise the consequences of their actions!
Hi Jure, thanks of the reminder to buy Ekaterina's book. It's on the list. Great to meet you at NMX.
