Plaxo is a great little utility. It generates all kinds of side effects. For instance, I make it a habit of sending people those Plaxo e-cards on their birthday. One of the toughest things to do in business is to simply stay in touch with your friends, and contacts. Plaxo makes it a little easier.
Today is my friend Brandon Watson’s Birthday. He’s complaining that he didn’t get enough birthday wishes. Head to his blog and wish him a Happy Birthday, if you wouldn’t mind. I haven’t spoken to Brandon in months, but Plaxo reminded me that I should, so I did. And I learned a whole bunch of interesting stuff. He’s started a consulting business – Desmogroup. He’s a dad now. He’s an ironman triathlete.
Oh, and, because his new daughter is just six weeks old, they decided to stay in Houston during Hurricane Rita… and he blogged it.
I just love the way that Plaxo (and the web) makes it so easy to reconnect.
Happy Birthday Brandon!
