Why I changed the jonerp newsfeed, and what that means for content curation

Some time ago, I published a piece on riffing on the power of pull, which was inspired by the book of the same name, but geared towards individuals rather than the corporate focus of the book. It was my tribute to listening and context in a world where most of us are in relentless broadcast mode, in a desperate bid for our slice of attention amidst a media pie that is getting more crowded by the day.  Believing that our friends will surface everything we need to read is naive and lazy. I went into a further rant on this topic in my blog post, "Twitter is not a content meritocracy." Though the "Power of Pull" was not about pimping tools, I did say that Google Reader was the ideal tool for those who want to get a leg up by pulling the best content into one location.

SAP Twitter Video - How (Not to Behave on Twitter) - 2009 Highlight

Another video highlight from 2009 I am now posting on this blog is my "How (Not) to Behave on Twitter" video. I taped this when I was in a bit of a pissed off mood about some common misbehaviors on Twitter I find particularly annoying. But after the fact, I thought there was some decent stuff on this video on the best ways to use Twitter to your advantage if you’re an SAP professional, and maybe a few laughs besides.

When I posted this on the SAP Community Network, I said, about the video, "In this unforgiving yet low key rant, Jon Reed of presents, for Twitter users, ‘how not to behave’ on Twitter if you want to use it for business - either for your employer or yourself." That’s a pretty good summary of what you’re about to see. Oh, and if you want to track me on Twitter and ask me quesions in real time, find me at @jonerp.

Why Did You Share Your Google Reader “ERP News Feed” and Who Cares About RSS if You Have Twitter?

There is something of a quietly simmering debate on whether Twitter is an adequate replacement for RSS or not. I’m not sure the debate can be settled, because so much of it depends on how the individual uses these tools, but I’ll give my take on this and how it impacts those who have a stake in SAP (and ERP) trends - as well as how to monitor my new shared ERP news feed.

How Do You Track the SAP Market in Real Time On Twitter?

Twitter has become a real asset to me in my work tracking SAP market and skills trends. More importantly, it has deepened my relationships with many very smart and interesting people in the SAP community. As a result, I decided to do a couple of YouTube videos on my Twitter experiences and make some recommendations on how to go about following SAP folks on Twitter. I did this partially because I think there are misconceptions about how to use Twitter that you need to throw out in order to use Twitter effectively. I’ll share the videos I did in this post, as well as some additional thoughts I didn’t get to share in the videos about making your Twitter experience worthwhile. Editor’s note: the YouTube videos may not display properly in your browser. Until we fix it, you can see the videos referred to here.

"Jon, you are definitely spot on with your analysis of the SAP market. I've been using your websites for over five years now. Instead of buying all the SAP books, I use your stuff to catch up with what's new in the ever-increasing SAP market." - Mark Reader Feedback

"I've kept up with your site for a long time and your articles via and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
