The Plurk Brain Trust

Today, I was stumped.

I was suffering from writers block for the blog. It happens. So, I threw out a Plurk to my friends asking about what they'd like to see here.

The discussion that ensued was a rapid-fire, but deep well of information and inspiration.

My very public thanks to friends Deb Robison, Sonny Gill, Te-Ge Bramhall, Justin Whitaker, Mack Collier, Eddie Soto, Donna Tocci, Naomi Meredith, Connie Bensen, Mao de Mao, Amie Gillingham. You guys - along with all of my connections on Twitter, Plurk, and everywhere else - are the very definition of community.

So, stay tuned for a new post series I'm researching on internal social networks. Seems more and more companies are exploring them, and I'd like to focus in closer on some of the advantages, challenges, and questions that these create. I think building communities and connections within companies can be as important as doing it outside, and I'm excited to see what I learn. Look forward to sharing with all of you, and as always, thanks for reading.

Hey Amber!

Thanks for your kind words. We love working with you and the leadership you provide.

On this topic, I am looking forward to your series and would love to learn more about how internal social networks enhance an organization's external social network participation.

I look forward to more of your insights.

Hi Amber,
You're very welcome! If you need help finding the video on Blue Shirt Nation give me a holler.

Your post will be a great example I'm working on about crowdsourcing. :)
