June Holley, Valdis Krebs, and Jack Ricchiuto have recently started a Network Weavers blog. (Thanks, Valdis, for alerting me; and a special shout out to Jim Murphy @ ODLG who got the news to me almost as fast as Valdis.)
Linking to fellow network weaving SNA practitioners is where I find my blog persona simultaneously at its most powerful and vulnerable.
Vulnerable, because I have met with hoped-for clients who have gushed, "You have a great blog, Bruce. Thanks for linking me to Valdis Krebs."
Powerful, because putting network weaving at the heart of my own business helps set an incredibly productive tone for all of my projects and, in my fondest hopes, contributes in some way to establishing a positive communal identity for all my fellow SNA practitioners.
For more on the somewhat counter-intuitive power of giving away referrals to the competition, see my reporting of last year's KM Cluster, where Steve Borgatti spoke very eloquently on the topic.
