I think that this photograph, by showing the smile meeting the handshake, really displays the human-ness, the texture, of social interaction and perhaps as you mentioned, a moving away from simply being broadcasters and into the labyrinth of the social media void. Very interesting.

Kevin,

I can really relate to this part of your post: "...and giving up control of the messages."

When I started in sales in my current position... I would call my clients, and during conversations I'd pretty much recite the marketing messages and pitches I'd memorized for each product.

Now I ask my clients questions, and let them tell me how the products can help them. Basically, I just shut my mouth and the clients end up selling themselves on our solution... regardless of whether or not they're using the same verbiage I would have used in the past during a "pitch".

Nice post.

Der lang anhaltende Machtkampf um das Gebiet Tibet, wobei es meiner Ansicht nach um die einseitige Macht Chinas geht und auf der anderen Seite ein repressionsfreies und anerkanntes Nebenherleben (lt. dem Dalai Lama), spitzt sich angesichts der bevorstehenden Olympischen Spiele weiter zu.

I really liked your post. Adding the human element to our every day conversations enriches our interactions.
