When is self-promotion not authentic?

There are many people in our industry who think they are a lot more important than they really are…People who measure themselves by false metrics such as Twitter followers, Facebook friends, LinkedIn connections, or any other data that doesn’t actually measure the amount of good you’re bringing to the world.

Kathy Sierra joined us for a great conversation about her biggest passion: you. Note-worthy moments and themes:

– How do you create excellent experiences for users
– Clay Shirky’s recent rant about women, wishing they’d show more chutzpah and self-promotion
– a useful unself promotion approach to work and social media presence than “personal branding.” It’s certainly working for Kathy.
– Why follower counts aren’t the thing to pay attention to
– the iPad’s social possibilities both online and between real life and online.
– Deb quoted the Talmud tonight, Kathy Sierra Daniel Pink and me QVC. That’s range!
– Deb got a cowbell, Heather grabbed a hairbrush and Kevin rocked out
– We never wanna get ourselves free. This week’s song is so very cowbell worthy.
– Books mentioned: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (P.S.)– Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Kathy dropped his name all casual-like) and Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
– Daniel Pink
