a writer I admire, the.idea.dude, Vernon Lun — Successful Blog’s newest arrival.
Behind the curtain at The Good Blogs, you’ll find, Vernon — and his partner Tony — reading every
good outstanding blog that makes it into their amazing directory. The blogs that Vernon selects are a reflection of his values — quality, heart, intelligence, and spirit. I know. I’ve been talking with him since before SOBCon07.
Vern has natural insight and wisdom. Gosh he gets my brain going — check this post about his personal blog’s first birthday for proof.
Did you see that list of what he says he’s learned?
Vernon is not one to let the world know of his talents. But I am.
Did you know that . . .
- Aaron Brazell, Director of Technology at b5 media said, . . . Vernon Lun . . . actually created the tool that allowed us to clone the design with unique colors and logos across all the [blogs.]
- Vernon’s got a Ph.D. from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. In his thesis he formulated a framework for distributed real-time intelligence.
- Vernon’s words are sticky. See how Vern’s idea stuck with Haydn Shaughnessy. I hope the debate over collective wisdom is not over because every time somebody else puzzles over it we stand a chance of writing what Vernon Lun recently referred to as a digital sociology. Few writers can do that.
Vernon’s elegant thoughts and generous heart make such things happen. They also have me jazzed to announce Vernun is writing for Successful-Blog beginning today!!!
Vernon’s column, Connecting Dots, is exciting and something uniquely Vernon. Vern’s a master at perceiving relationships that take us from one thought to another. So Vern’s going to take us with him as he travels the living web on that silver thread that connects us all.
The Idea Dude is connecting dots for our reading pleasure.
Like peanut butter and chocolate, it’s time we got together.
On a rare occasion, the reality is better than the vision.
For the sake of continuity, I’m publishing Vern’s first column right below this one . . . It’s called Connecting Dots.
