Glad you boasted, it's well deserved praise--and nice that he posted the full list on his site.

You've been working hard at getting CEOs to open up to their constituencies and it's catching on. Other CEOs will (hopefully) follow 'suit' shortly.

It's always stupid, lame, and idiotically counter productive to toot your own horn section in any otherwise sedate symphony.

It's always repulsive to drop names and quote allies, like in a sidebar of a blog or in posts.

Even if influential, more especially so in fact, one must pretend to be, and try harder to become, obscuratist, aleatory, fringey, in outer space, or at least completely insane. Like a court jester.

That way, you can reach only the chosen few who will actually change the world with secret impulsions stemming from your keyboard or pen.

I wish to have no effect on CEOs per se. I address them only to have target at which to aim my innuendos and lullabyes.

I wish only to explain best practices for CEO blogging to those few who deserve to know. That is done via esoteric VPN whisper transmissions.

Correction: "obscurantist" I forgot the "n". My deepest apologies to all. I rebel against the mandatory typo sect and "sloppy means busy" school of fishy business thought bubbles.

And I meant "obscurantist" in the sense of opposing bad practices with little known, "obscure", hidden, unfamiliar Business As Unusual, Thus Super Successful principle implemented by Just Men and Rejuvenating Women..

I am not posting comments "against" yours, I'm just regretting all self-promotional declarations, they seem so Uncluetrainy.

I regret posting this post now. I hate seeking to impress and dropping names. It is heinous business error. As Seth Godin states, it's best to keep plugging away at perfection and let the influentials discover you accidentally.

Self promotion always sounds pathetic, exaggerated, and desperate. At least my own sounds that way to me.

I believe: do your best and let that be your advertising, your PR, and your sales strategy. Doing your best and continually improving.

I am not posting comments "against" you, it's more a self parody, an auto-attack.

I'm mocking myself when I say "and quote allies, like in a sidebar of a blog..." which is exactly what I, and few others, do.

I hate my blog.

Steve,

Just for the record, you were never banned from Naked Conversations. You were, at times, a royal pain in the butt, but we never came close to banning you. We wanted, at times, for you to sit down and shut up, but that did not merit you being banned. In the end, you helped us write a better book and we appreciate your passion and help.

In attacking myself, I learn true auto-combat.
