Monday is going to be my ' blogging day '. Why the Monday ? Because on the mondays, you can't pick up the phone and call your prospects or clients. Monday is the back-from-the-week-end day, where people still have part of their brain connected to those wonderful/restful/delightful days when they were * off *. Monday is also the back-to-business-as-usual day, where people spend most of the day checking emails and voicemails, reading the latest company's news, preparing the weekly briefing (shall you be an R&D engineer or a Sales man working at a 20+ people firm, you know what I mean), etc. In summary, I never call clients and prospects on the Monday because nobody will listen. By chance, they don't call on me neither (I mean, on Mondays ;-)
Better make the best use of the day, to do things that can't afford interruptions. Blogging is one. So, let's blog !
Speaking of interruptions, this recent post by Kathy Sierra at Creating Passionate Users is worth reading. It's all about the impact of the Web 2.0 on people' s daily life. Which turns out to become purely an StayAlwaysOnline life. The last avatar of this scarring trend : TwiterCurve. You've got to see it to believe it : members tell the World what they are doing at the very moment they are posting, anwsering the simple question : " what are you doing now ? "... It reminds me the days of the (first ?) Bubble, when the whole Telecoms industry was a planet by itself, where vendors were selling to their customers who were also their own vendors, without any link to the Outside World (the rest of us). At Telecom Geneva in 1999, I was exhibitor with HP/Agilent Technologies. During a morning when I was not on booth duty, I took the opportunity to visit the show. It was a real shock for me : 80% of the whole exhibition was made of vendors selling to the other exhibitors - in brief : vendors selling to their vendors. A pure vicious circle. No one was addressing the Real World : us, as consumers.
Today, I wonder if the Web 2.0 thing as a whole is not turning out to be a new Bubble : who cares about what I am doing right now, but myself or my wife ?...
