While reading something yesterday concerning marketing in virtual worlds I resisted the urge to comment. Last night and again early this morning, I further resisted the temptation to post something here regarding what I’d read. And I’m now resisting the urge to slip something in. I won’t.
The only thing I’m going to say is that my internalized exasperation and an upcoming meeting with an old acquaintance with whom I expect to discuss the topic, really got me thinking.
Consequently, in pseudo stream-of-consciousness style, I posted some entries on Twitter to help me retain some of what was going through my mind. It’s not intended to make sense to anyone but me, but because I don’t trust Twitter to retain those entries, I’m going to add them here.
