Don’t worry, I’m not going to launch into a diatribe or give you something really heavy to read. I just wanted to update you on what has been, and will be, going on on the WUL front (as well as my own).
Also, there is no particular reason for the gecko photo, in case you were wondering… I just felt like using it!
I’m going on vacation! Yes, this entrepreneur actually dares to take a vacation. But this is a really special vacation; my baby brother is getting married, and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
So after a couple of days, I will be away – out of the country, as a matter of fact! – for the next couple of weeks, and hope that I will have terrific tales to tell of the Czech Republic and London when I return.
I know. It’s been way too long since you’ve had a dose of #measurePR, be it the chat or a recap. I have no excuse other than to tell you I’ve been dealing with a whole lot of S.T.U.F.F. So even though Karelyn saved the transcript of the last chat we had, I’ve only just been able to get around to posting it here for you.
I’m really sorry. I will try to do a better job next time.
Since it’s been a while, let me take you back through the #measurePR time machine.
The day was May 28, a Tuesday. The weather was calm, sunny, with not a hint of the storm to come. The wind… OK, I don’t really remember what the weather was like, but it was rather a crappy day, for reasons we won’t go into here. A bright spot was that we were due to talk with my friend John Friedman, who recently moved into the role of Corporate Citizenship Communications Director for Sodexo (for whom he’s worked for years).
Guest Post by Jen Zingsheim
Hello folks! I was a little rusty, as this was my first guest host of a chat in 2013. I hope I managed to keep the chat at or near its normally very high standards!
Here’s the write up from the #measurePR chat held on May 14:
We kicked things off by discussing the new program from Klout, called Klout Experts. This evolution of Klout allows users to ask questions of experts. Eventually, Klout hopes to build a database of answers and rate the responses, which will allow experts to build their clout on Klout. (Details in this Wired piece.)
We’re a predictable bunch, I think, because #measurePR chat participants remain dubious that this will lead to true influence measurement.
