Bill Gates on Robert Scoble: "You are letting people have a sense of the people here. You're building a connection. People feel more a part of this. Maybe they'll tell us how we can better improve our products." "Scoble and Israel really understand the issues of corporate blogging well. They discuss why it's important for businesses of all sizes to engage in this new form of communication with their customers and of course, the danger of not participating." -Michael Gartenberg, Vice President & Research Director, Jupiter Research "Naked Conversations...covers the bases with real-world examples and insights for anyone who might have a stake in communicating, or conversing, in an era in which subjects can be exposed and laid bare at Internet scale, and participation and honesty rather than obfuscation and subterfuge hopefully prevail." -Dan Farber, Editor in Chief, ZDNET Whatever happened to honesty in business?
