Not sure this will happen soon again, but as it currently happens, it is worth a post and a story...
Of course, I did not track it, my good friends from Array Digital in Mumbai found the article today...I hope they see in this the importance of their work developing our mining technology, and am glad and proud for them to have the whole team in Mumbai also be part of this story! Thanks guys, and continue!
What I found even more amazing, is that all this press coverage will not have happened without BLOGS! This is a story in itself, really inspiring! Let me explain...
It all started only 2.5 weeks ago with a pre-release of first inisghts results of Baroblogs: The Barometer of Blogosphere...on this blog... what I did then, is push the news to fellow friends bloggers... (look at the level of mentions of baroblogs on Technorati to date, in this chart am not counting mentions of crmmetrix nor "crm metrix" nor my name, simply baroblogs!) and since the news was relating to blogging... in France...and apparently was carrying some good and new insights, people started blogging about it... even the most famous French Blogger: Loïc Lemeur.
Thank you Loïc (and to all bloggers from France, US, Germany, Austria, Italy, India, Asia at large... that carried the news), as your post on your blog got Tom's attention that called me for an interview to then have the honor to be mentioned in IHT, NY Times and today Times of India!
Amazing, in less than 3 weeks, we got more coverage than in... 5 years... simply thanks to the power of social media...or word of mouth...or consumer generated media...all this thanks to blogs! The ones that still think that blogs, CGM, online WOM are fades... please read this!
Thank you all and more than ever I think that Blogs start conversations and help markets to be "smarter"... we are very much in the age of the ClueTrain Manifesto.
By the way, I also offer here to get inputs for next wave of Baroblogs, please feel free to comment or contact me directly, thanks!
