Sometimes I think that easy access to info makes this huge online world quite tiny. I was reading Copybloggers blog, and he recommends a book.(The New Rules of Marketing and PR: How to Use News Releases, Blogs, Podcasting, Viral Marketing and Online Media to Reach Buyers Directly) I view book details at Amazon, and I see the foreword is by a guy named Scoble. Never heard of him, and yet he is promoted strongly on the cover. Nevemind, I think. Then I go on to your blog, and what are you writing about? Scoble. Small, small big-world.
