That’s what Lea Ann of Standing Dog said this past week as we were winding down the bi-weekly #measurePR chat, and it was such a great quote that I had to use it to kick off the recap post, as well as in the headline.
Die Hard and squirrels!

So, yes, it was a really fun chat. They usually are, but there was something in the air last week. Perhaps it was relief that YouTube wasn’t really shutting down (I thought that was a pretty lame attempt at an April Fool’s joke, Gmail Blue was much better… but what do I know), perhaps it was giddiness at being done with one’s taxes (are you done with yours?)… but whatever it was, it led to an extremely fun and engaged conversation.Events, Measurement, MeasurePR, Shonali Burke | Tags: #measurepr, affect pr, b2b pr measurement, b2c pr measurement, sandra fathi | Comments (19)
Last week, my friend Geoff Livingston joined us for the bi-weekly #measurePR Twitter chat. And, as usual, he kept the conversation going with some very interesting views on the future of PR (you know I’m helping him and Patrick Ashamalla put on xPotomac, right?), what good and bad measurement looks like, and what PR pros must learn to do from the measurement point of view.
Whew! Yes, that was a lot to cover in an hour, but you know what Twitter is like – going here, going there, flowing here, flowing there. So we did just that, went here and there, and had a lot of fun in the process.

If you’ve been around since the first #measurePR, you’ll remember that Katie Paine – who has probably had the single-largest influence on my thinking when it comes to PR measurement – was the chat’s first guest.
So it was only fitting that as we started the 2013 chat series, she was the first guest of the year.
What a fun chat it was! Katie always brings the sass in addition to the smarts, so it was a ton of fun. We talked about ups and downs of 2012, what to look forward to in 2013, and about the new book that Katie has co-authored with another of my faves, Beth Kanter, Measuring the Networked Nonprofit (here’s my review of the book).
