@dontgetcaught If it weren’t for my French teachers’ acceptance of Tintin and Asterix, I’d never have learned what X##**!! means.
5-yr-old: “Captain Haddock sure is silly!” I think: “Yes, a loveable drunkard spouting bombastic expletives.” How will Spielberg cast that?

@FreeVermont Yes. With more people on Twitter, the knowledge broadens out … less emphasis on early-adopter topics. Next: more depth?

@BryanAlexander “[blog] Comments are not a conversation.” Agreed. Blogs= presentation with Q&A. Wikis= group discuss. Twitter= speed dating.
Facebook is not an extension of College marketing; it is an organic, freewheeling public service. Buyer beware. #2013.

@KarlynM Rhetorical. Taking grandstanding intent off the table, how to evaluate subjective opinion as good or bad, accurate or not?
@dcfemella Interested in your evaluation of Disqus and IntenseDebate (now a WP/Automattic property).
@KarlynM Do the Kawasakis & Arringtons & Scobles have a sense of personal responsibility, or are they maximizing profits? Can it be both?
@KarlynM Yes, I think they’re high profile because they do. How do you measure the accuracy of opinion, though? Why irresponsible?
@KarlynM There’s no imperative to buy Kawasaki’s kool aid. He also said: “Sell GM to Toyota” on the Scoble special. Hold him to his word.
@KarlynM I think he meant Twitter as a “mechanism” a la Web browsers, e-mail, television, phone. Integrates all. Only a potential for now.
