  1. Hi Marc,

    You’ve created some rich commentary.
    Let’s connect sometime. I think we might have some interesting DM approaches to talk about.

    And thanks for the JC Penney email. I have not laughed so hard all week. Sets a good tone for Halloween.

  7. I was just curious about where you are getting the statistics in your article ’19 things you should know about your world’. I know it says that Karl Fisch and Scott Mcleod compiled the data, but I was wondering how they went about gathering their data. The data they provided is very interesting and I would like to know more. Thanks!

  8. Nice to see a fellow Neapolitan who is engaged in SEO and web marketing. It’s an everchanging art form, more like a dance of ever-modifying Tai Chi or the self-emergant characteristics of starting a new life form (sometimes chaos, sometimes complexity).

    On a more mundane note, I spotted your business registration the other day on sunbiz and I stuck it up on my site, along with a few links to your twitter, your blog and your main business pages.

    If you want to claim it to modify it, just lemme know.

    It’s at:

    It was just a standard business entry, but after being pleasantly surprised to find you have a blog, a tweet-spot and a website, I figured i’d just toss those links in for good measure.

    Best of luck in today’s economic climate: as there has been over 600 new businesses registered in Collier County FL since January 1st, 2009, i can see there is a LOT of hope happening in this here county, and good things are yet to come. It’s always darkest before the dawn, and when shroedinger’s cat hsa been let out of pandora’s box, hope.

  9. Marc –

    I really like your post about the 10 things to twitter during the conference. I thought the fact that you mentioned the observers “observation” is just as valid and important as the speaker’s take on things at the conference.

    Hurrah for insight and communication..

  11. Hi Marc,

    I just want to introduce the E-Connect network to you. It’s a quality network (well, going to be) of websites that have RSS feeds.

    There’s really nothing to lose from participating. Widget loads fast, links are “nofollow” so you won’t get any bad neighborhood, 8 colors 2 sizes to choose from to match the design of your website.

    Take a look at your convenience.


    Kind Regards,
