how many clicks does it take to get to the centre of the…

this post is regarding the influence project: the search for the most influential person online

i feel like, if i participate in ‘everything’ that shows my ‘influence’ it devalues when i post good content. everything is becoming about your so called ‘influence’ and i hate pushing links on people all the time. what do i get if i put my name in this?  my picture in a magazine. meh, been there done that a few times. so, it doesn’t really seem worth it? who really gains? they do.

where are the perks for making people click on something that does nothing for them. i like to give people value, that’s where my influence comes from. i hope someone cool gets this thingy but it surely won’t be me. as for the Virgin thing, that will provide heaps of value back to everyone who votes for me. i will be an ambassador, organize parties and create fun memories for people all over the place. all this talk about influence, makes me think it’s more about VALUE. y’know what i’m sayin?

another thing, the site is all built in flash and really slow too.  i’m more than happy to not try for this one. i’m sure we will all be seeing more and more of this user generated ‘meme’ stuff floating around (ex. donttellashton.com). i only wanna take part in things that give back, things that have value for everyone not just for myself. it’s pretty much the same reason I don’t put ads on my site, i don’t want you to think i’m banking off you visiting, i like to think i make you smile, and maybe  i even inspire you.

i do the internet stuff because i love it. it started out as a way to keep more memories and it’s evolved in to many things, but i’m not about to start using it for anything but good.

Feeling super happy today. Excellent morning to start a wonderful day. I love summer and the heat. Looking forward to a few days of rain too. Make the most of today, it’s the only July 7th 2010 you will ever have! lolz but true 🙂

    popularity isn’t always influential (at least in a good way). I think that’s what you’re getting at? There are a whack of popular people in history who had an influence, for sure, but some of them weren’t influencing people to do good things. From what I get of this ‘project’, it would be a great marketing tool for a corporation because they would discover who gets their brand the furthest online. I wonder if it’s possible to know whether I’m being “influenced” by someone who’s taking part in the project…

    Influence is like a gift you can refuse to accept.

    If i was looking for a provocateur, someone who can really sell the sizzle, The journey would end at Casie Stewart. So, Virgin, why not make the journey a short one!

    It is totally true that you will do a great job at this. And I'm not saying that just because I've met you and “tweet” with you. I'm saying it because it's the truth. You would bring the best parties and fun stuff for us all. So I know that by voting for you, I am getting something too! I like it 🙂 Good luck Casie – be that Virgin Provocateur!
