Business Exchange: Trilogy of Entries Ends

At the risk of losing you by posting a 3rd entry in a row about the new project I am working on, I’d like to point out the good side: trilogies have a habit of working, quadrilogies (is that a word?) don’t, and so this is the last one you’ll have to endure (at least for a while).

Check me out at Business Exchange

We’re open! Today is the day the curtain gets lifted, the veils get parted, the fog dissipates (etc., etc.) on the Business Exchange (if I had a soundfile of Also Sprach Zarathustra, I’d insert it here).

So, come on in — it’s easy! Just self-register here (insert your info, including your e-mail address and the password you wish to use when signing-in), and a completion link will be sent to you within the hour. Click the link, create your profile (a neat feature allows you to load your profile from your existing LinkedIn one) and then go to this page to sign-in: Business Exchange.

So, Ron, What Are You Working On Now?

Here’s what I’m working on right now:

My new project

My new project

After 10+ years at AOL, people have been asking me that question, and it’s not always an easy question to answer. I’m Director of User Participation at — which means I’m the lead curator of Community among our users. We’ve been hard at work on a new Web 2.0 product that’ll roll out after Labor Day (want a sneak peek? E-mail me or ask in a comment) and I’ve been unable to speak about it publicly.

The word cloud above, created with Wordle (thank you, Nancie), gives a clue to what we’re developing. Stay tuned for more…
