Talking 'bout Lead Generation

Back from the Root Vaultstock day in New Y ork , which was a terrific mix of folks I'd previously seen only in the blogopodosphere and Seth's Gang of Lead G-g-generators. Greg Narain recorded some of it, and we'll try and get some of it on Gillmor Daily in the next few days.

Meanwhile, I'm rolling out Parts 2 and 3 of the MacWorld Tapes, today's GD being a conversation with Dan Farber that starts on Jobs and ends with RSSonomics. And remember: Tom Foremski still has no full text feed, and no comment either. Speaking of reputation, I'm participating in a Reputation Roundtable tomorrow with Mike (Editor) Arrington and others. Transparency rules.

Update: Foremski responds, kinda.

 

What's the problem Steve?

If you don't think a partial post is important enough to click through then you should not click through. In fact, you should probably not be reading it at all. I'm saving you time and precious clicks, imho.

This in my comments, which, imho, are also braindead. They don't show up in RSS, which is why they suck. Use your blog Tom, and don't link to me if you think that's important. It's all about choice, and you're not allowing it Tom. No need to click if you allowed the full text feed like you used to. Let users decide whether they want to read the whole post. When you used to, I often read you stem to stern. Now, I have to click, which works very poorly when I'm on a plane like I was when I noticed you had gone beind the click wall. Give users choice, Tom, or they will choose to skip you altogether. Your choice, but why not listen to the Scobles and other RSS fanatics who make up such a small percentage of total users that they probably will represent only a small number of lost click revenue. If they're not such a small group, then you're pissing off a rather influential group, dontcha think. That's my problem Tom.
