First impressions in an e-mail world

I really wish I could’ve spent more time in Washington–not only to spend a month or two in the Smithsonian Museum, but also to run into people like Jeff Widman, who’s normally based in Seattle but who happened to be in Washington when I was there.

Jeff e-mailed me last Tuesday to introduce himself and see if we could get together and chat about Gen Y and social media. That in itself was cool (I love connecting with other Gen Yers working in this space), but you know what was even cooler? He attached a PDF to introduce himself. Digging around on his blog, I came across an online version of it:

Neat idea! I’m tempted to make one myself (or refine my self-introduction in verse), because people often wonder (a) what I do for a living, and (b) how on earth I managed to get an opportunity to do that. =)

Good idea. Go out and make your own. =)

    Hey Sacha–thanks for the blog link!

    Glad you enjoyed your time in DC, and ping me if you ever make it out toward Seattle (though looking like I’m heading toward Silicone Valley for 3-5 months here…)

    Or ping me if you ever have time for a thought-provoking phone conversation!
