Congrats, Todd! I'm happy you've found a great new gig, and that you're not one of those people abandoning Boston for other cities!

A big congratulations to you for the new position — and to SocialSphere Strategies for snatching you away from Topaz. Nice to see you with your own blog, and here’s hoping you’re more disciplined with your blogging editorial calendar than I am with mine. Subscribing now!

Thanks, everyone! Day one is going really well. Just had an amazing meeting with the author of several books on the Marine Corps (and the father of a former Marine), who came in to help us understand the Marine mentality (they’re one of our clients).

I’ll write more about it in a separate post. Very exciting stuff!

wow – congratulations Todd – this is excellent news

the perspective you have outlined above is one I share with you deeply – we must bring the top and the bottom together without the people in the middle blocking progress for the sake of sustaining their positions of power inside the larger corporations – without support from the top, this is very very difficult unless you are very very far from the corporate HQ with a large degree of autonomy – this is perhaps a deeper conversation to have beyond this simple comment, as I know and respect a great deal of middle managers, but all too often lately I have seen too many trying to slow or stop progress instead of encouraging it out of fear for not understanding what is happening

perhaps this is a topic for a social media club discussion? From the top, the bottom or the middle: how to best accelerate social media adoption.

Chris, I agree it’s an interesting topic. My approach has always been start small but think big. That means you need adoption, or at least buy-in, at all levels. But top-down really does help I think–nobody wants their boss to be more tech savvy than them…

Congrats to the man who taught me blogging could be cool – oh wait, that was Mike Spataro.

Congratulations and my best to you, Todd, in what sounds like a really exciting and growth-filled move. I’ll be very interested to follow what you’re working on, and I also really appreciate your work on behalf of Social Media Club. Hope to see you again soon, either in SF or Boston. Cheers!
