@ClayMorgan I played around with the free trial for a bit and never really got into it.
I totally geek out on Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Skyrim.

@LauraPetrolino @Howie Goldfarb I'll need to chew on this a bit. Gunther and I have had some really interesting discussions in the past. Super smart dude. :D

Fantastic post, @jamescrawford!
Do you think it's possible to focus too much on the bottom line, especially when it comes to brand awareness and advocacy work?

@BillSmith3 Thanks, Bill!
@ginidietrich My face has made its triumphant return. Can we have a parade?
My face is back! My face is back!
@SavvyCopywriter @JRHalloran From where I sit, branding is as much about knowing who your audience isn't as much as it is about who your audience is.
Philosophically, I admire the chutzpah of people like Erika to speak so openly and frankly online, and she's obviously enjoying the recognition as a result.
I have a pretty colorful vocabulary at times, but like @ClayMorgan said, there are times when it's downright inappropriate -- like around my niece and nephew and my inlaws.

@ginidietrich @amandag It's true. They do. I totally squee'd when I met Amanda at the pre-party for Content Jam. Not ashamed.

She rules. End of story.
Here's one I've been pondering for a while. There's always been this belief that "quality content" floats to the top, but the enormous popularity of sites like Buzzfeed, Upworthy, and ViralNova seems to turn that idea firmly on its ear. The quizzes and such seem to go way, way further in social than the most well-written and cogently argued blog posts.
With that in mind, how do you reconcile these two contradictions?

@aimeelwest @ginidietrich @markwschaefer @LauraPetrolino Keyboard cowboys.
@markwschaefer I know @ginidietrich touched on this in a comment further down the line, but I always have to remind myself that there will always, always be a freshman class coming in for whom this stuff is totally new.
Totally unscientifically, I'd say that marketing folks are probably two years ahead of the rest of the social media-using public.
