Yeah I was at a party a few months ago and was introduced to some SOM marketing guy with long sideburns, as being the prolific writer of DaveNet. "Davenetics?" he asked. No DaveNet. "Ohhh, never heard of it."

A friend called this morning after reading the piece. "Oh no don't stop!" she said. I thanked her. The conversation continued. "What are you doing?" she asked. Doing tools for writers. "Why didn't you write aboiut that in Davenet?"

On Tuesday, talking with the CEO of a company we're partnering with. I ask how is what you're trying to do like what I do? "You send out emails I'm doing websites."

With Scripting News I connect. DaveNet is a tired format for me, and I think it translates to the readers. I think very few people are reading DaveNet. I think a lot of people get it, few people read it.

My opinion, but it's a far cry from the early days when a DN piece could visibly change things, imho for the better. These days it's some different formula. To be free to find that, I have to change the way I work.

It's hard to imagine that I won't write 3-5 hour essays in the future. But I'm only going to do it if they get read!!
