    Chris,

    How have you found the experience of using CC overall? Have people always given you correct attribution for your work?

    This is one of those “why didn't I think of that” examples. Real creativity is a wondrous thing. So simple and yet so rare.

    Interesting mutation, I like mutations because they present a more colourful world, a better take. We need more mutations more mutants and less mutanity. Collaboration is a decent word, my friend has that in his company title. What I think is more interesting is the mutatations and the newness. The new Chris Brogan logo loooked diamond in the montage too.

    Viva la Mutantes.

    I realize this post is about sharing and “keeping information sharable” but what strikes me is that we all digest content differently. While a nice (pretty?) list works for some, a cool, slick, creative video works for others. Love it.

    Joy,

    I rely on getting those tidbits of information from one source (this blog!) when it comes to good business practice.

    I've lost count to how many times I've been inspired or motivated to take action after reading a short phrase or two on one of Chris's articles!

  • http://www.businessbuilderbookclub.com Joy Johnson

    I've watched him for the last few years as he's broadened his thought base. At this point he's close to Godin, Gladwell, Anderson, Kawasaki, and their ilk. There are a lot of great minds that are more linear – and I would never minimize that in any way – but I do appreciate someone, especially in this “niche” driven world, who can accumulate a diverse variety of immature concepts, coalesce, and elevate them. That is the role of a thought leader. I place the greatest value on people who present ideas that make me think, that make my own mind want to take the next step. He's clearly there.

    Thanks for the mention, Chris! Great information deserves to be spread in various forms. I'm glad I could be a small part of that!

    I second that!

  • http://www.joshchandlerva.com Josh Chandler

    Joy,

    That's exciting, I only started reading Chris's blog back in 2007. Didn't really follow his work closely until the end of 2008.

    Wow, that's an amazing idea.

    I never would have thought the great ideas that could come as a result of allowing others to use your content! Great post, and kudos to Paul Durban!

    The universe works on the foundation fo sharing. We cannot worship god (sharing) and mammon (greed) too. One works … and the other hampers your experience of prosperity no matter how rich you may be.

    Paul… Glad you made the video for Chris and that Chris shared which ended up making those of us who were unaware of you now become aware. :) The circle is complete and I'm really looking forward to sending a few upcoming projects your way!

    I saw this post and watched the video the day that Chris posted it. What I did not realize at the time is the the highly creative guy who created this video, Paul Durban, is someone I went to high school with in Los Angeles Country (I am now in Texas and Paul is in Nebraska) 26 years ago (how did we get this old?).

    The interesting thing is I read Chris's words, saw the video, but Paul's name did not register (even though I am connected to him in Facebook and knew him well when we were in high school). Today he found me on Twitter and I immediately called him on the phone. We had a great conversation and I want to work with his creative company on some projects for my publishing company.

    He was highly creative in school, thus the amazing stuff he is doing with ebooks and video is not surprising. Check out all his stuff at http://www.blazonfire.com.

    Thanks, Chris, for almost reconnecting me with an old friend. Had I been more observant I would have called Paul two weeks ago! Duh.

    But think about this for a second folks. 26 years have gone by…. we live thousands of miles in opposite directions from where we grew up, and yet our paths crossed on a blog like ChrisBrogan.com….. and yet we missed. How many other people are we all just missing to make a connection?
