Risk of New Leaves

By Dan Hadaway | Monday, March 29, 2010 - Leave a Comment

Well, here it is a week later already and I haven’t posted. Is this the risk we face in our use of Web 2.0 . . .

THAT WE WILL FAIL TO USE IT?

Or . . .  that we will look bad in at least trying to use it? Take that reputational hit?

Okay, my spell checker-thing is telling me that “reputational” isn’t a word.

In the nineties, we began wrestling with the e-mail inbox.  In the early 2000’s, we started pulling off the road to initiate a cell call (well, we should have).  In the mid-2000’s we began the battle to keep up with the onslaught of incoming text messages.

Now . . .  we feed the social media machine!

So here I am, needing to post something that is not a typical article, and that does not expose infotex to a whole bunch of risk because it has misspelled words in it.    Ahhhhh!!!!

I tried to do my dutiful Vigilize thing on Twitter, and right when I went to tweet, Twitter once again overloaded.  How can you feed the machine if it is eating too much?

If I wasn’t so impatient, I would have waited to do a Twitter search on the words “Twitter Crash”. But I didn’t.

Does this make generation Y more patient than Generation X or, in my case – the Baby Boomer Generation? Does Generation Y wait to tweet?

. . .  or do they?

Hey Twitter, better wake up!!!

Web 2.0 turns us ISO’s into nay-sayers. We tip-toe through the tulips of potential reputational ruin.

Who says reputational isn’t a word?

The Internet (and especially Web 2.0) made reputational a word!!!

Oh, did I say you’d get some value by reading this diatribe?  Well here is a history of my vigilize posts!  You can bookmark it, or you can just pull down to it in the “jump to category” feature on the left side navigation.
