Regarding reader feedback and "the conversation." | February 24, 2006
Okay, all this talk recently at my site about "the conversation" between companies and customers brings up a good point - how do readers of mine get thoughts, opinions and responses to me? I don't have commenting abilities here, after all. Today, a fully detailed guide to how you can do so, why I think this is much better than commenting, and how you can easily implement such a thing at your own site. Plus: Speaking of feedback, here's something to ponder - what kind of social application should I build at Ning?; and a few thoughts about Philip K. Dick and the letting-go of our childhood heroes.
