Feeling blue about trusted ticket agents (or, why Chris Brogan won't go to Ontario)

Yes, a Chris Brogan story belongs in my Inland Empire blog (Empoprise-IE) rather than my business blog (Empoprise-BI).

You see, Brogan has just released a book and is on a book tour. Since his sales don't quite rival those of Jackie Collins, the book tour isn't as extravagant as other tours. And, in true social media fashion, he's crowdsourcing some of the details.

I’m plotting how best to use my JetBlue All-You-Can-Fly pass. Are you near any of these cities? Think you could get a bunch of people together in any of those cities to buy 100 or so books and show up for a signing at a local Barnes & Noble or Borders or Books-A-Million?

Well, we know one airport that won't be on Brogan's tour. You'll recall from a previous blog post that JetBlue pulled out of Ontario International Airport last summer.

Wonder if Southwest has an all-you-can-fly pass....

If you're interested in the book, go to the Barnes and Noble site (note: NOT an affiliate link) to not only learn about the book, but also read a review of the book Chris Brogan. He kind of likes the book:

I think it's a decent book. It's not exactly scholarly. It's not a step-by-step manual, although there are tons and tons of actionable moves to take.

I'm proud of my work on it. I hope you like it, too.
