While the updates may be a little more sporadic than they have been in years past, I’d like to say thank you to everyone that has visited, and continues to visit the site. It’s been fun, and that’s why I keep doing it.
Yesterday afternoon I was able to get together with a couple of colleagues here in Boise. We talked about the usual things — families, life, kids, etc. We also talked a little shop, of course. It was a good chance to catch up with some old friends that I haven’t seen in far too long.
But later that evening I had a strange realization — in some ways, I’ve inadvertently become the Kevin Bacon of the agency world here in the Treasure Valley. Between the places I’ve worked and the people I’ve worked with, there’s a good chance you could connect anyone from Seattle to Salt Lake and points far beyond through me.
Nothing more than a humorous observation on my part, of course. But for Pete’s sake, please don’t start calling me Kevin Bacon.
Crap. Too late. It’s going to be a thing, isn’t it?
A perfectly appropriate response, and a great example of an organization recognizing that social is not a stand-alone channel, but rather something that can be woven throughout everything. And given the speed of their response, I have to assume that – much like Oreo during the Super Bowl – they knew exactly when their spots were scheduled to run, had the right people in the room, and had a plan in place for their responses.
And now, a little more than a week later, I’m writing about the entire thing here. NAPA Know How indeed. Well done to everyone behind this.
