I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

I agree with Evelyn Rodriguez about Budget Car Rental’s initial foray into the blogosphere: basically spare me the promotional flimflam and let’s instead talk about you improving your product. Doc Searls said much the same thing a few days earlier.

Here’s the good news, from my point of view. If a company starts blogging in a dull way, it’s not a big problem. The blogosphere will soon take care of creating a much more interesting conversation. I suspect Budget will be reading these voices and it will learn something. So let’s welcome them to blogging and wish them a pleasant climb up the learning curve.
