Great pictures, Kim. We're thinking of you a lot. Sam seems to follow the same routine with the hairdresser's clippers as I do. :) Love Viv and Dad

Thank heavens for these video moments, so we all can enjoy Sam's growing vocabulary and wonderful laughter and smiles. Wish we could be there to see and get involved. Miss you all. Lots of love Grandma Viv and (grand)Dad

I just had to add a comment to show my support, Kate. It's a great topic. It struck me that the faces you had up there were of interest not in themselves but because of the companies they represent. So if you're a conference organizer, why not approach such CEOs and ask them to nominate a woman speaker from their organization who could present their corporate take on whatever is the subject of interest. Who knows the request might even send a message. :)

Well yes, you're right that you can do it with Search if you like. However I believe you should make it easy for everyone. So why not add the URL in case it floats someone's boat. Sometimes a bit of redundancy works a treat.

Although I have a great respect and liking for POW! and all it stands for, I think today's message is tough for most people and businesses. Stand out or be stomped on. If you're trying to stand out from that crowd for the world in general, then that's a superhuman effort. Instead perhaps try to figure out who are the people who really would like to know about you. Then make sure you do the things that mean they find you when they come searching in the crowd for someone exactly like you.

I'm with you 100%, Randy. However do you realize that the World Wide Web Consortium still hasn't repudiated that One Web concept. That states that a single URL should give you the content you need whatever device you may be using. I think you're in the real world. Methinks the W3C should join us all.

That's a great thought, Andy, but IMHO it comes second in the 1 - 2 punch combination. The first is to get on their radar screen somehow, whether it's via a newsfeed as I use, or via a search engine. That's why Sergey and Larry won't have the time to be shining shoes any time soon. Once you're in the prospect's line of sight then Surprise is a great way to stand out from the crowd. Who knows if they like the surprise enough, then perhaps they'll even tell their friends. :)

You're right, Kate. It's an interesting mix of blogs and a great way of finding some blogs you might have missed. Congratulations on getting into the finals. It's great to see the spotlight on Canadian blogging. :)

I certainly concur that there are some great Canadian bloggers. Perhaps I can add another blog to the list. I've started another on the Mobile Internet world, called StayGoLinks, to be found at http://www.staygolinks.com Thanks for bringing this all together.
