You get to rub (possibly the wrong way) elbows with the smart and famous! Steve Rubel, Senior Vice President/Director of Insights for Edelman Digital, lifestreamer, AdAge and Forbes columnist and avid sports fan, has personally told me to ‘buzz off’. I earned it for protesting that he nearly roped me into signing up for Google Buzz, when I (kind of ironically) went to comment on his ‘buzz’ about social media overload.
Steve has tweeted 10,095 times (as of this tweet), so that means .009906% of the time, he’s talking about me!
I should also take this opportunity to note with gratitude that I get a large amount of traffic (for me) from comments I’ve made on Steve’s lifestream, and that Steve’s readers spend by far the most time of any visitors to my site reading content—an average of 12 minutes each over 5 pages! Some smart fans, Steve Rubel’s lifestream has.
/sense of accomplishment for today.
