The Influence Project


OK. This is off topic. Other than it's part and parcel of my ongoing interest in social media, technology tools and how things are working in this new age of communication. The Influence Project is an interesting experiment by Fast Company, the business and entrepreneurship magazine to look at influence. How it works on line. You can be part of it, and if you do, leave a comment on this post or send me an email and I'll click on your URL and add to your influence profile! It's pretty simple: to participate you set up a profile, upload a photo and get back a unique url to spread to your connections online. (or in person) You ask them to click on your url (I'm asking here) and when they do, your photo grows in size. It's weighted by your audience, so that even if you aren't a big time giant blogger, you still might have more influence than you think, since people who click through on your request are proving your influence!

To tell the truth, the other reason I am doing this is that I will be heading up the social media/social interaction group of 7 to 10 year olds at this summer's Think Like A Planet. I want them to try it out -- I think! So give me a try, click this link, leave your name in the comments and you'll be entered for a drawing for my DVD Rainbow Printing from Interweave Press
