Public speaking versus blogging

Used to be, if you wanted to get a message out into the market, you would give a talk at a conference, a reporter would write down some of what you said and mangle the rest, and you’d call it a day.

Or, you could shortcut the process by simply giving an interview to the reporter and letting him mangle what you said directly.

These days, you have the option of staying home, blogging in your underwear, and not having your words mangled.

I think I like the direction things are headed.

Mid-year resolution #1: No more public speaking.

Mid-year resolution #2: More blogging.
