Web 2.0 guru prefers e-mail…

Twit2art #8Image by Twit2art via FlickrCute experiment by Doug Henshen showing that a web2.0 guru (Dan Keldsen) promoting twitter (“I’d rather that you use Twitter“) in reality responds via e-mail.
Is e-mail still not beaten ?

  1. Hi – the issue was that Doug hadn’t used @dankeldsen to pop above the noise of twitter. His question was directed to the public stream, and I didn’t see his 2nd attempt until I’d already answered via e-mail and his blog. Definitely an interesting experiment though. Of course trying to contact me via 3-4 different methods could also be interpreted as spam, but that’s another discussion. 🙂

    My statement “I’d rather that you use twitter” was a dramatization (that presentation was a skit, and I was in character) we should all be using the appropriate tools for the job, especially given that Twitter is awfully unstable in recent weeks.


  2. Dan,
    Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment.
    I a sure that the test and findings of Doug ware also just a dramatization, just like my post, and in no way a judgment of web2.0 or twitter.
    Like you said, it shows that indeed there has to be a somehow aligned community to have the right communication effectivenes.
