I recently was introduced to Paul Dunay of Buzz Marketing for Technology by Mukund of Best Engaging Communities.  Paul and I set up time for a phone call to talk with one another.  As sometimes happens, what started as a hello, let’s chat, quickly turned into a spur of the moment Podcast – welcome to the web 2.0 world that allows us to go from 1:1 conversation to public – push button! 

I had a great time talking with Paul about communities…below were the topics we ranged across and here is the link to the podcast.  I know I didn’t give all these their due justice, but thanks Paul for suggesting we share the conversation!

    I’ve always been a bit of a talker…I think I could do 5-6 hrs straight on the topic (if sitting in a pub anyway:))
