Chris Brogan has a post called “New Media – STAND UP” which I find interesting, and I have a very short, very simple response.
If you have a conference on New Media, the attendees are the conference.
The original post that has brought this all up is by Jeremiah Owyang with the simple statement:
Itâ€™s really important that we hold ourselves accountable, especially our leaders.
My overly simple take on it: if the speakers don’t show up to their panels, how long will they stay the leaders?
The industry and folks around it need to lead, and I look to Jeremiah and Chris to show us how it is done.
