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.

The volatile chemistry of trust

Interesting research from Stanford suggests that exciting brands get more trusted after making mistakes and putting them right whilst more “sincere” brands start with more trust but lose it more easily. Perhaps the sensible interpretation is that second-guessing customers can be a waste of time!
