Talking business, baseball and networking

Maury Brown from The Business of Baseball Blog asked a bunch of people in the media along with some bloggers their impressions of how social networking has impacted what they do.

If you’re interested in that sort of thing, there are a lot of good opinions and points.

I was asked to participate along with estimable folks like Will Carroll (who just Twittered 17 times as you read this), Ken Davidoff, Tim Dierkes, Jon Heyman, Joe Pawlikowski, Dave Pinto and Joel Sherman,

To me, it really just comes down to this: The more places a baseball fan has to get information and communicate about about the sport with other people, the better it is for everybody. Baseball is by far the most social of all sports and has the greatest influence on the lives of fans because it is played every single day and we get to know the most about the players.

As a media person, you have to be foolish not to tap into that passion and find a way to make it work for you.

Oh, and please support the strip clubs who buy advertising space here. Thanks. The girls just need a few dollars so they can go back to school.


Good news soon for those of you asking about a mobile version of this blog.
