#FollowFriday: Brain Crushes

By: Gini Dietrich | September 2, 2011 |

Today’s #FollowFriday is a little bit different. Elissa Freeman and I thought it’d be fun to list our five brain crushes…giving you 10 people to follow.

And, seeing as it’s the holiday weekend and I’m not going to write Gin and Topics today, I thought it was only fair to give you just a little bit more.

This started when I admitted I have a serious brain crush on Jeff Jarvis, the author of “What Would Google Do?” and The Buzz Machine.

So this is the result…10 people whose brains we love.

First…Elissa’s choices.

  1. Justin Goldsborough. When I found out Justin was only 32, I was kind of blown away – his insights in PR and social media are often sage-like. When he interviewed me for his vlog 52 Comms Mix-Up it was like a great first date – I could have talked and talked and talked. And? He loves food, travel, and his Kansas City Royals (well, he’s not perfect!).  The co-founder of the super-successful #p20chat, Justin’s the kind of PR agency guy you’d want to have leading your account. So, you could talk to him everyday and, of course,  swoon!
  2. Mitch Joel. There was quite a bit of buzz about my fellow Canadian in one of Gini’s posts – mainly how being bald makes him so smart.  And then someone chimed into to say how much they liked his podcast voice.  I think both are true. I heard Mitch speak as I was first exploring social media – and followed him immediately on Twitter. He didn’t follow me back until about a year later. Talk about stringing a girl along! Nevertheless, Mitch posts often and posts smart.  And you feel that much more ‘in the know’ after having read his words.
  3. Adam Vincenzini. Well, I lost my guest blogging cherry to Adam so naturally, he holds a special place in my heart. You need to know about the latest analytical tool or infographic? Adam knows. The European editor for PR Daily News, Adam also co-founded #CommsChat – modeled after popular North American chats about the issues PR pros, journalists, and bloggers should be thinking about. An Aussie with a sprinkling of Italian (and yes, we’ve Skyped before so I’ve heard that accent!) Adam is hard to resist!
  4. Jeff Esposito. I crush hard on Jeff’s shoot-from-the-hip style; he likes to stir it up. Anytime you encounter him in a Twitter chat, he’s the guy who digs deep on every question. A frequent tweeter, Jeff understands how to connect and influence via social media.  His sports knowledge is equally impressive and he can go toe-to-toe with the best.  Plus? He’s a dad – and he’s cute.
  5. Dan Perez. He loves life, his wife, and his work. And? He’s hot – as in muy caliente/latino/South Florida filmmaker hot. Smart guy, smarter blogger, and can’t cook worth a damn.  An #usguys guy. He loves my food (the pix anyways) and Amy Howell’s, enough that we get all hot and steamy about it…usually on Sunday nights. His blog is deep and thought-provoking.

And now, my turn…this is hard because I would have chosen the same as Elissa. And we already know I have a brain crush on Jeff Jarvis so I won’t add him below. So here goes. Different ones.

  1. Sheryl Sandberg. Even though she’s not of the social media world, in the sense that we all know one another on Twitter and Facebook. But she is the COO of Facebook and is one of the smartest women in the world. I was first introduced to her when she gave the commencement speech at Barnard. You can’t follow her on Twitter, but I do recommend you pay attention anytime she’s in the news. She’s smart, she’s inspiring, and she wants you (as a woman) to change the world.
  2. Jay Rosen. Jay is a professor at NYU, where he directs the Studio 20 program. He is a traditional journalism guy who has made the shift in a serious way. He critiques his former peers and makes recommendations on how an industry can progress instead of die. His blog, Press Think, isn’t updated often, but when it is, you always come away learning something.
  3. Jay Baer. While we’re on the name Jay, let’s talk about Jay Baer. I was complaining to him a few months ago about the website development process and he joked that all a web development firm has to do is answer the phone and deliver on time and they win. A-freaking-men. Jay is one of the first people I read in the blogosphere at Convince and Convert. I learn something new from him at least weekly. In fact, I keep some of his blog posts open for days as I implement some of what he’s taught. If you have any desire to up your game, he’s a must-read.
  4. Clay Shirky. Clay drives me nuts. He comes across as extremely arrogant and chauvinistic online. And, more often than not, he pisses me off. But he makes me think. A lot. I mean, to the point that I’m still stewing a couple of days later. And, even though I rarely agree with him, I appreciate that about him because he opens my mind and he makes me think. I think that’s the biggest issue with social media – when we disagree, we’re seen as combative. But I appreciate the debate; it makes me smarter. And Clay is bald. So perhaps Elissa is right about her bald theory.
  5. Danny Brown. I’ve had a brain crush (and maybe even a little real crush) on Danny for years. His brain works completely differently than mine so I always try to absorb as much as I can from him. I read his blog, I speak on panels with him, I join him for podcasts, and I look for reasons to work with him. He’s over-the-top creative and he makes me a better professional.

So there you have it. Ten people who are smart, funny, and combative. Who are your brain crushes?

P.S. There will not be a Gin and Topics today. I’m going to spend my afternoon getting ready for my nieces and nephew to visit, riding my bike, and writing some more of MY BOOK with Geoff Livingston (who is another brain crush, but you’re going to hear lots about him in the next year).

Have a happy holiday weekend!

  11. NancyD68 says:

    Brats. You listed all of mine. Well, let me think…I wish I had some of Margie Clayman’s creativity. I also want to be smart like Danny Brown.

    I also have a brain crush on Seth Godin. I love his books. He really is brilliant.

    Oh, and there is this lady, you may have heard of her…what’s her name again…? Oh yeah. Gini Dietrich. Yeah. I want to be smart like her. 🙂

    David Armano

    Umair Haque

    Clay Shirky

  13. @jasonkonopinski Like that list. A lot,

  14. faybiz says:

    Curious- this was “brain crushes” and only one chica out of ten? interesting…

  15. @Sean McGinnis Thanks Sean – I won’t spend too much explaining *why* they’re on my list because their CVs speak for themselves!

  16. Al Smith says:

    Well, I am shocked and disappointed. Ok, I guess I was slightly further down your list, Gini. Oh well. What ? ……. Oh ………BRAIN crushes. ok. Never mind.

    Al

  17. CristerDelaCruz says:

    @ginidietrichlisagerber Oh, and I gotta add my HBR crush… Umair Haque.

  18. CristerDelaCruz says:

    @jasonkonopinski Yes, Umair Haque!!! LOVE HIM!

  19. margieclayman says:

    I would have to add Mark Schaefer, Carol Roth, Sam Fiorella, and Jeff “the Sensei” Wilson to this list 🙂

  20. CristerDelaCruz says:

    Ditto on Sheryl Sandberg. I’d probably put former Sec’ty of State Madeleine Albright on there too.

  21. ElissaFreeman says:

    @NancyD68 ok…I crush on Gini too – but it was a conflict of interest….

  22. ElissaFreeman says:

    @NancyD68 ok…I crush on Gini too – but it was a conflict of interest….

  23. margieclayman says:

    Also Gini, I will now accept your apology – narrowing things down to 10 isn’t so easy is it? Mehhhhhh 🙂

  24. ginidietrich says:

    @margieclayman LOL! You still cheated.

  25. ginidietrich says:

    And I want to add ikepigott . Dang. I should have done the 10 by myself. Sorry Elissa! 🙂

  26. ginidietrich says:

    @danieleagee Tell mschechter that.

  27. ginidietrich says:

    @CristerDelaCruz I like him, too. He’s super arrogant, though.

  28. ginidietrich says:

    @ElissaFreeman LOL!

  29. ginidietrich says:

    @NancyD68 I’m conflicted with Seth – I love his books, but hate his blog. And I agree on @margieclayman . She’s wicked smart. But that Gini person is a loon. Be careful.

    @jasonkonopinski Copycat.

  32. ginidietrich says:

    @jasonkonopinski Copycat.

  33. ginidietrich says:

    @Sean McGinnis@faybiz We actually agreed it would be just men (since we’re women), but I cheated. Because, well, it’s my blog.

  35. ginidietrich says:

    @Al Smith If I write a goof crush, you’ll definitely be on it.

  36. ginidietrich says:

    @margieclayman I do like those Sensei boys. And yes, yes, yes to the others.

  37. ginidietrich says:

    @CristerDelaCruz Who clearly isn’t on there for her looks. Poor thing.

  38. ginidietrich says:

    @CristerDelaCruz Who clearly isn’t on there for her looks. Poor thing.

  39. patrickreyes says:

    Great list. If I wrote my own, you would definitely be on it even though you’re a Bears fan.

  40. danieleagee says:

    @ginidietrich I never liked that jerk mschechter anyway.

  41. ginidietrich says:

    @MatthewLiberty It was hard…I should have done 100 brain crushes

  42. Ike says:

    @ginidietrich Shhh… “He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named” doesn’t write anymore. That SOB just comments. Which only serves to remind everyone how much more brilliant he was as a commenter than as a blogger.

    Wait, what was I saying?

  43. ginidietrich says:

    @patrickreyes I think it’s so cute that you cheer for a JV team.

  44. ginidietrich says:

    @danieleageemschechter Me. Either.

  45. NancyD68 says:

    @ginidietrich@margieclayman I worry about that Gini Dietrich sometimes….she worries me. She has an unhealthy obsession with poop.

  46. ginidietrich says:

    @Ike (it’s OK – it’s #FF and he-who-shall-not-be-named tweets)

  47. ginidietrich says:

    @NancyD68 And naming things – like her stomach, her quads, her bike, her tomato plant. It’s awkward.

  48. adamtoporek says:

    Great lists. I would add cspenn — wicked smart!

    Also, since your drubbing at the hands of @MSchechter earlier this week, I think you deserve something nice. So… you, Gini, are on my list! And quite frankly, will be #1 if we ever make a list called Online Community Leader crushes. 🙂

    @margieclayman Hmmm Mark Schaefer…yes very crushable…I’m thinking this list will need updating in six months…

    Great list! I too would have to add @ginidietrich if I wrote a list and Dan Zarella.

  53. Ike says:

    @ginidietrich@Sean McGinnis@faybiz …and, well, there’s nothing wrong with that.

    We’re just here to watch.

  54. ElissaFreeman says:

    @ginidietrich @ikepigott Oh trust me…narrowing it down to 5 was hard…

    @ginidietrich@Sean McGinnis@faybiz …and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    @elissapr you’ve made my day 🙂

  58. ElissaFreeman says:

    @ginidietrich @Sean McGinnis @faybiz Yeah, that Gini…she takes ALL KINDS of liberties…

  59. cbarger says:

    @ginidietrich Aww… and I didn’t get you anything! Guess dinner should be on me, huh? 😉

  60. elissapr says:

    @AdamVincenzini Well Adam you were my first…er..Brain Crush, that is..http://t.co/IirP0gz #CommsChat

  61. @ginidietrich G – Don’t sing it, bring it.

  62. faybiz says:

    @ginidietrich@Sean McGinnis Gertie- everyone is cheating today huh, huh?

    I see how it is… so does this make you 1/5th what exactly?

  63. faybiz says:

    @ginidietrich@Sean McGinnis not that there is anything wrong with that

  64. MSchechter says:

    Seriously great list. I’m going to dismiss you and Danny for the time being as you’d both be at the top of my list, but I don’t think that will help anyone around here… Here are mine (and I have a feeling that I’m about to get bitch smacked by Gini for not having enough women on here…)

    Merlin Mann – The guy chanced my life. Inbox Zero, Time and Attention and just an example that an ADHD mess can make something amazing.

    Mitch Joel – Know it is redundant, but the guys output is awe inspiring. Not only is there quantity, but the quality is sick. Great taste, great thoughts both in text and on the podcast.

    Yuvi Zalkow – How Yuvi is not WILDLY popular I will never understand. His presentation videos on writing are some of the funniest and inspiring things I’ve seen.

    Seth Godin – I know it is cliché, but I’m in awe of the guy. Not only for the books he’s written and the content he’s created, but his willingness to reinvent his approach to books (and the taste he has applied to picking authors, this Sivers book is exceptional, btw!)

    Marco Arment – This is the guy who created instapaper. First off, I love the way he approaches his blog. He is very open with his business practices and experiments. Plus Instapaper itself has changed the way I learn.

  65. MSchechter says:

    @ginidietrich@danieleagee Cheaters often win.

  66. MSchechter says:

    @danieleagee@ginidietrich Me either…

  67. Lisa Gerber says:

    @ginidietrich@patrickreyes I’m not entirely sure I know what the means, but my own interpretation, whether right or wrong, made me laugh. and therefore, it worked.

  68. Lisa Gerber says:

    @ginidietrich@CristerDelaCruz So Crister, we’re both dorks now apparently.

    but THANK YOU!!!! awwww. 🙂

  69. Faryna says:

    Dan Perez sucks. I’m sorry, I had to say it. I came to the conclusion after reading his blog post here:

    http://southfloridafilmmaker.com/quid-pro-quo-20-things-you-probably-didnt-know-about-me

    Is it still there?

    Let me summarize minus the french that I used the last time that I summarized Dan Perez’s blog post.

    He told the world that he doesn’t care about bloggers. Our boring little lives. Or what makes us tick.

    He told the world that the only good thing about a human person is that they are a potential organ farm for his wife and all the others waiting for organ transplants.

    He told us that his wife has gone through hell with sublime grace and gentleness. Therefore, no one else in the world can be worthy of his consideration.

    Then he asked us to register as organ donors in case we meet a fatal accident.

    Maybe I’m too stupid to understand that his rant was merely a clever parody of a sociopathic film maker. Or was he just making fun of all the bloggers who were sharing their lives on #nicheamnesty.

    Accolades, in my humble opinion, belong to those who love, who give, and who serve. [smile]

    @ElissaFreeman@margieclayman We might just have to keep a running list.

  74. ginidietrich says:

    @faybiz I’m happy to see you finally followed the rules.

    @MSchechter Great comment.

  77. ginidietrich says:

    @MSchechter Great comment.

  78. ginidietrich says:

    @adamtoporek Great add with Chris. Totally agree! But I don’t know…would I have made the list without that cheater’s guest post?

  79. ginidietrich says:

    @Cision You’ve always been my favorite. I like the addition of Dan, too.

  80. danperezfilms says:

    Dang! Either you got me all figured out or you were, indeed, too stupid to understand my clever parody. Or was it just the rant of a sociopathic filmmaker? Oh, whatever…

    Happy Friday.

  81. danperezfilms says:

    @margieclayman Sam Fiorella??? Come on…

  82. adamtoporek says:

    @ginidietrich You’re right… I did make it sound like a pity inclusion. But yes, you are always on my list!

  83. danperezfilms says:

    Thank you @ElissaFreeman , You’ve always been one of my favorites {{{Hug}}}. Wish I could say the same about @ginidietrich , though. I guess she’s OK 🙂

  84. danperezfilms says:

    @Faryna

    Dang! Either you got me all figured out or you were, indeed, too stupid to understand my clever parody. Or was it just the rant of a sociopathic filmmaker? Oh, whatever…

  85. ginidietrich says:

    @MSchechter I have nothing to say to this except, excellent choices.

  86. ginidietrich says:

    @danperezfilms Um, you ARE on my blog, you know. Don’t make me kidnap Buddy. I will do it.

  87. ginidietrich says:

    @Faryna I think you should give him another shot. The work he does around organ transplants is extraordinary and very personal to him. I didn’t read the blog post the same way you did (I re-read it today to see if it struck me that way). I think his only point was that there is important work out there to be done and we should use our voices, and our blogs, to do it.

  88. ginidietrich says:

    @adamtoporek OK. Fine. You’re back on my good side. 🙂

  89. NancyD68 says:

    @ginidietrich@Cision I thought I was your favorite!

  90. NancyD68 says:

    @ginidietrich That Nancy Davis person is NOT STRANGE AT ALL – nope. Not at all!

  91. CristerDelaCruz says:

    @ginidietrich I just want to brain-crush him, not date him 🙂 It’s like being an aunt or uncle … the fun stuff with little (if any) of the hassles.

  92. MSchechter says:

    @ginidietrich@danperezfilms She has already taken my children…

  94. HowieSPM says:

    Woohooo! I know I was on both short lists! I just can feel it. Maybe I didn’t make top 5 but I know I was close. I woke feeling really good. Lot’s of energy. Breakfast was tasty. 3 oreos and 4 scoops of raspberry frozen yogurt on top of some well done hashbrowns. That is when i realized I was probably shortlisted. Breakfast tasted way too good to be just an ordinary breakfast. Just not sure if it was Spin Sucks related or an FBI wanted list, but I knew it would make me proud. Whether I was in the top 10 or top 1,852 compared to the population of Italy that makes me on the very short list.

    I want to thank everyone who has supported me all these years. My mom and dad. My rabbi and priest. My guru and my social media guru. A special thanks to Tiger Woods, Charlie Sheen, and Lindsay Lohan for always having my back in a pinch. I want to thank my Press Agent @Shonali , my Road Manager bdorman264 , and Stylist nittygriddyblog . Without them I would be nothing. And last but not least the loves of my life Cher and Whitney Houston who instilled such love and passion in me.

  95. MSchechter says:

    @ginidietrich I see what you did there!

  96. HowieSPM says:

    @MSchechter@ginidietrich@danperezfilms kiss em goodbye Michael. Gini already sold them to be used in Scientific Experiments.

  97. HowieSPM says:

    @ginidietrich@MSchechter any reason why you didn’t include Donald Trump?

  98. HowieSPM says:

    @Lisa Gerber@patrickreyes@ginidietrich who are the bears? I thought this was a Kansas City Chiefs Fan Blog?

  99. HowieSPM says:

    @ginidietrich@ElissaFreeman@NancyD68 No one mentioned Vin Diesel?

  100. bdorman264 says:

    @HowieSPM@Shonalinittygriddyblog And what kind of yogurt was that, Howie? Unfortunately, I knew I wouldn’t even be within sniffing distance of this list. However, it’s not a bad thing because when you are as simple as I am it sure makes falling asleep at night so much easier. If I could just get rid of that mouth breathing look however…………….

  101. HowieSPM says:

    @MSchechter@ginidietrich No more commenting we don’t want to risk you losing that number 2 spot Michael.

  105. Brankica says:

    I’ve had a brain crush (and maybe even a little real crush) on Danny for years. WHAT?

  106. Brankica says:

    @ginidietrich she did! Did she ever re-do that post?

  107. Brankica says:

    @CristerDelaCruz or humanity…

    @Brankica@margieclayman She did NOT redo the blog post. And, if I had cheated the same way, I would have grouped people into my fives: People whose brains I love and are also hot, people whose brains I love and make me laugh…and then had numerous people in each category.

    @margieclayman Hey, it totally counts! Plus I added my awesome top ten list!

  126. ginidietrich says:

    @HowieSPM Oreos and raspberry frozen yogurt. So. Gross.

  127. ExtremelyAvg says:

    I only follow two people on this list, Danny and Jay. I’ll check out the others, as I assume they are all wonderful and able to snark it up with the best of them.

  128. ExtremelyAvg says:

    Oops, I was also following Dan…sorry Dan, didn’t mean to leave you out. I knew I was mistaken when I saw your avatar.

  129. ExtremelyAvg says:

    Oops, I was also following Dan…sorry Dan, didn’t mean to leave you out. I knew I was mistaken when I saw your avatar.

  130. Only one out of ten is female? You guys aren’t reading enough women who are out there. I’d throw up Shelly Kramer or Tara Hunt on any brain crush list.

  131. ExtremelyAvg says:

    @LucretiaPruitt I would like to add Shonali Burke. 🙂

  132. ginidietrich says:

    @LucretiaPruitt We actually agreed it was only going to be men because we’re women. And then I cheated.

  133. jeffespo says:

    Wow @elissapr thank you. I must admit that I was unfamiliar with the term brain crush was until I saw @ginidietrich post on Jeff Jarvis, and am flattered to be one.

  134. NancyD68 says:

    @ginidietrich@LucretiaPruitt I think everyone is confused. Maybe you ladies needed to say that at the start. Would have helped. Just a helpful hint from your slugger carrying friend 🙂

  135. ginidietrich says:

    @NancyD68@LucretiaPruitt Give a girl a break. It was 4:30 in the morning and I’m getting over a migraine.

  136. ginidietrich says:

    @bdorman264@HowieSPM This is why I don’t like list posts. Because I love each and every one of you in different and unique ways. I certainly don’t want to miss anyone or not make anyone feel special.

  137. Me too. But I’d also add @ginidietrich which is kinda impossible for her to say! Elissa’s now on my radar too. 🙂

  138. Me too. But I’d also add @ginidietrich which is kinda impossible for her to say! Elissa’s now on my radar too. 🙂

  139. Me too. But I’d also add @ginidietrich which is kinda impossible for her to say! Elissa’s now on my radar too. 🙂

  140. @ginidietrich phew! Because how could you keep it down to 5 otherwise? 🙂 I’m good with that. And besides, Sheryl’s worth cheating for. 🙂

  141. @ginidietrich@NancyD68 4:30 in the morning? You are a mad woman! 🙂 Seriously though, would be cool if you could do women next week and maybe cheat using one guy you didn’t list yet! 🙂 I’d tune in!

    @elissapr I owe you a drink

  144. elissapr and ginidietrich , you all are way too kind. Thank you very much. I truly enjoyed reading this post. Some very smart people on this list. In fact, dannybrown is one of the first people in this space who inspired me with the way he thinks. And I also am a big fan of jeffespotell it like it is style. Howevr, he still needs to teach me how to brew my own beer. Cheers!

  145. jeffespo says:

    @JGoldsborough all in exchange for a taste of KC BBQ

  146. @ExtremelyAvg Snark is what I live for. Look forward to future conversations. Cheers!

  147. Brankica says:

    @ginidietrich I forgot to add ” “, you don’t recognize your own sentence LOLAnd I am keeping my mouth shut how charming he is. You will never get it out of me! 😛

  148. @danperezfilms Gini’s all right. 6 or 7 on a 1-10 scale :). #Kidding

  149. @MSchechter Agree, Mitch Joel’s posts always make me think.

    @ginidietrich@adamtoporek it is ok to stick with the pity line of reasoning. Gini you are now in my top 5 too. Below Einstein but above the founders of Groupon. #Elite and I am going to make sure @KenMueller puts you in his top 5 too. #uberElite

  156. AmandaOleson says:

    What a great list. I’d say my biggest brain crush is Mitch Joel. Every time I read his blog I feel smarter. He’s compelling and incredibly sharp. Obviously, he’s followed closely on my list by @ginidietrich. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a total fan girl… and I’m not even embarrassed to admit it.

    It’s likely that I’ll regret this for a long time, but @jeffespo is definitely on the list for me too. He gives me a real hard time for being a die-hard Vikings fan, but I forgive him because he’s so damn smart. (Also, I’ll be denying that I said this from here on out.) Rounding out my top five: @JGoldsborough and dannybrown. Both are super duper smart and friendly, and I try to soak up their wisdom every single day.

    Oh, and it’d be a crime if I didn’t mention arikhanson. I seriously think I learned half of what I know from him. He’s also an all around stellar guy, so he gets major bonus points there too. 🙂

  157. jeffespo says:

    @AmandaOleson awwww I blushed

  158. DannyBrown says:

    @AmandaOleson@ginidietrich@jeffespo@JGoldsborougharikhanson You were doing so well there, Amanda, and then you had to go and mention that Jeff fella… 😉

  159. DannyBrown says:

    @JGoldsborough What the deuce is all this @jeffespo love? The guy looks like he’s wearing devil horns in his avatar, for Pete’s sake!!! 🙂

  160. jeffespo says:

    @AmandaOleson you are too kind. And well wait isn’t sports about trash talking? And I am screenshotting that, as it is proof so you did say it. danny brown she has stellar taste

  161. AmandaOleson says:

    @jeffespo Don’t let it go to your head. I’ll never say it again. Out of spite.

  162. DannyBrown says:

    @Brankica@ginidietrich Haha, I saw that sentence too. Remember, what happens in New York… 😉

  163. AmandaOleson says:

    @jeffespo Stop it right now or I’ll never say anything nice about you again.

  164. DannyBrown says:

    @Faryna To be fair, @danperezfilms only sucks on a Thursday, usually between 6pm and 9pm EST. Other than that, he’s usually OK. 🙂

  165. jeffespo says:

    @AmandaOleson I was being polite. And I was going to tweet I know I am not on yours, then bam floored

  166. DannyBrown says:

    @HowieSPM Because Donald Trump has hair, and @MSchechter clearly has a bald thing going on? 😉

    Nice way to finish the week and head into the weekend, miss. 🙂

    So, for me, I’d guess these guys:

    geoff livingstonolivier blanchard@LucretiaPruittredheadwriting and you, @ginidietrich .

    There are many more that make my noodle tick over, but you guys are my standard bearers.

    Cheers!

    PS – Now, about that real crush thing… 😉

    @ginidietrich@bdorman264@HowieSPM Too Late, Gini. It’s ok though. Cause I’m gettin me my own helmet cam ! Gonna try walking with it first, then maybe a bike. ( Probably a 3-wheeler )

  177. danperezfilms says:

    @ginidietrich You leave Buddy out of this, you hear me?! Out of this!!! Uh, what’s that Buddy? You’d rather go with @ginidietrich because you think she’s kind of hot? No food for you!!!

  178. danperezfilms says:

    @ginidietrich@Faryna I mean, if everybody liked me I’d be… @DannyBrown . Why am I suddenly thinking of sheep?

    @jeffespo Don’t make me start being mean to you. I’ll do it. I swear.

    @ginidietrich@bdorman264 don’t worry you make Bill and I feel special. We also loved when you autographed our Team Jack Bauer Nascar Shirts 8)

  186. bdorman264 says:

    @ginidietrich@HowieSPM It’s kind of like your golfing buddies; you get the call to see if you can play and say ‘sure’. Then they let you know you were like the 7th person they had to call to complete the foursome; do you think that makes any difference, heck no, just tell me when and where.

    Trust me, I’m not going to make anybody’s braniac list and whatever list I might make in your crowd, I would be somewhat leery to see what the qualifications were and who my company would be.

    I couldn’t even make @Brankica top 199 list of bloggers but she assured me if she had decided to use 200 I would have been given serious consideration.

    Now Howie, he’s smart like that and that’s why we hang around; one of us needs to know what’s going on. Howie’s the smartest guy I know and I will do a post on my list of one, my smartest friend soon.

  187. John_Trader1 says:

    A fantastic list, I am embarrassed to say that I have not been following a couple people on this list but the universe of smarts is expanding so rapidly it’s sometimes tough to keep up. I personally have brain crushes on @cspenn and chuckhemann – I have learned a lot from their blogs and they are my go to dudes for analytics info/best practices/things that make you go “wow”. Both are just too damn smart for their own good. I also have to say that I too have a serious brain crush on @redheadwriting and @ginidietrich – I like to laugh and learn with Gini & Erika.

    Happy Labor day weekend GD. Unfortunately looks like I will be laboring all weekend. Went to Dragoncon today for video footage and I have a buttload of video to render and edit. Oy.

  194. Craig McBreen says:

    I don’t know any of the people above, except Danny. Here are a few of mine. I have too many more to mention them all …

    John Falchetto

    A creative and skilled writer, has great insight and offers sage advice to up-and-comers.

    Bill Dorman

    Not only a prolific commenter, but a guy that is taking the time to connect with people. I feel like a young Jedi learning from Bill. Networking extraordinaire.

    Danny Brown

    Yep. Yep. Yep. He’s teaching me new rules for making that lasting connection with the client through the social media tools now available. Not The Law of Attraction nonsense. Oh, that’s just one thing he’s taught me really. I’ll be picking his big brain as we go.

    Kaarina Dillabough: Her messages are always infused with positive, habit-changing, constructive, smart advice. I also love her manifesto about being social in “real life”.

    Mark Schaefer: His Grow blog is rich, deep, and informative. I’ve just started to scratch the surface

    Marcus Sheridan: He motivates the heck out of me. You know he kind of has that enthusiasm that is infectious. And he is always writing those thought-provoking posts … and he is always motivating the heck out of me.

    The One (Big G):

    Ginni of course 😉 I’m a brownnose, but it’s true, she’s da best.

    p.s. And I’m considering adding that Schechter guy to the list 🙂

  195. Craig McBreen says:

    I just realized I wrote “Ginni” Two n’s. Itchy trigger finger 🙂

  196. John_Trader1 says:

    @Craig McBreen Good call with kdillabough – just got acquainted with her and her blog and enjoy it’s ability to connect the dots with real life examples.

  197. Craig McBreen says:

    @John_Trader1kdillabough Yes Kaarina is great. I need to visit her place more, but I’ve been busy trying to roll mine out.

  198. Lisa Gerber says:

    My brain crush that hasn’t be menentioned yet;
    @tacanderson (can’t tag on my phone)
    He is with waggener

  199. Lisa Gerber says:

    Edstrom in London. Sheesh premature send.

  200. AbbieF says:

    Impressive list, but really…. only one woman made the list.

  201. AbbieF says:

    Quite an impressive list, but am surprised that only one woman made the cut. Wonder why that is.

  202. mitchjoel says:

    Elissa… you made my week… maybe month.

    @DannyBrown@LucretiaPruitt@ginidietrich Gini is it ok to say the word Noodle on Spin Sucks? Obviously Mashable bans such foul wording.

  206. HowieSPM says:

    @ExtremelyAvg@LucretiaPruitt if you mention shellykramer you start trouble. As for @Shonali you risk the NSA tapping your phone. #justsayin

  207. @DannyBrown seriously? You included my name in the same line as geoff livingston olivier blanchard redheadwriting @ginidietrich ? I literally rubbed my eyes for a second and thought you were just replying to me. I’m like a mouse amongst giants in that sentence. But I’m a mouse that just made a happy little squeaky sound! 🙂

  208. HowieSPM says:

    @LucretiaPruitt@ginidietrich@NancyD68 Gini was up early making pizza. What else does one do at 430am?

  209. @HowieSPM@ExtremelyAvg true, true – but shellykramer @Shonali are both worth the extra scrutiny. Besides, Shelly can make me laugh with just an arched eyebrow. She’s one of the drollest, smartest women I know… 🙂

  210. ShellyKramer says:

    @LucretiaPruitt Thanks honey. You are too kind. Always. And, for the record, infinitely smarter than I am :)) xo

  211. ShellyKramer says:

    @HowieSPM Hahaha. Now you’re talking. Watch your back!

  212. Shonali says:

    @LucretiaPruitt@HowieSPM@ExtremelyAvg@ShellyKramer You’re awesome! Sorry I didn’t see this before… I spent all day with doctors yesterday & heading into surgery tomorrow (or is it today… Saturday) – but anyway – just wanted to say thank you!

  213. hhuskies says:

  215. bdorman264 says:

    @Brankica@ginidietrich@HowieSPM Like I said, if I’m on someone’s list, it’s probably a dubious list. You will let me know when I’m ready to cross over to respectability……:)

    @Craig McBreen Thanks so much Craig: honored to be included in such company:)

  217. KDillabough says:

    @Craig McBreen That’s OK Craig: miss you, my friend, but you know the welcome mat’s always out:)

  219. KDillabough says:

  225. ElissaFreeman says:

    @AmandaOleson @ginidietrich @jeffespo @JGoldsborough @dannybrown @arikhanson I want you to know that I actually thought of putting @arikhanson on my list – but see…I kept MY list to only FIVE…so I was going to let Gini have him….!

  226. ElissaFreeman says:

    @jeffespo @AmandaOleson @danny brown Actually, it’s Jeff’s sports trash-talking that I found quite crushable!!

  227. ElissaFreeman says:

    @jeffespo @JGoldsborough Ha! I’ve been angling for a Fedex delivery of KC ribs for about 6 months now! Maybe NOW Justin will deliver..!

  228. ElissaFreeman says:

    @LucretiaPruitt @ginidietrich And Lucretia – you’re now on my list! (Great name by the way…)

  229. ElissaFreeman says:

    @ExtremelyAvg @LucretiaPruitt Shonali is a great add – anybody who dedicates their brainage to measurement deserves to be on the list…

  230. ElissaFreeman says:

    @ginidietrich Yeah Gini cheated…but you know what? It’s your blog so you can do what you want! I’m just pleased to ride shot-gun on this one…

  231. ElissaFreeman says:

    @ginidietrich @Narciso17 I second that emotion…

  232. ElissaFreeman says:

    @danperezfilms @ginidietrich While I was reluctant to ‘share’ you Dan with the rest of the twitterverse- I felt the world would be better served by more people know you….
    And oh yeah, that next movie you said you were shooting? You’re gonna make me the star…right?? right???

  233. danny says:

    @ElissaFreeman You like, tagged a totally different danny… 😮 I got the email notification. Anyway, lol, have a great day. I’m sleepy. 🙂

  234. ElissaFreeman says:

    @danperezfilms @Faryna Being a closet sociopath only makes you more crushable to me, Dan. #justsayin’

  235. ElissaFreeman says:

    @HowieSPM @ginidietrich @MSchechter I read Howie’s comment on the drive up to Northern Ontario, and nearly fell out of the car…laughing of course..

  236. ElissaFreeman says:

    @JGoldsborough @MSchechter Mitch is as prolific as they come – even if he did ignore more the first time we met…*ahem”. I clearly got over it…

  237. ElissaFreeman says:

    @AbbieF Cuz we agreed we’d list men first – then women…but SOMEONE cheated. Plus? My female brain crushes run more on the literary side- women who are using SM to explore their creative writing juices and building audiences through twitter. Not sure how that would play with this crowd here on Gini’s blog…

  238. ElissaFreeman says:

    @Lisa Gerber Actually…I’d put YOU on my list cuz you like my writing…heehee….and you give very good email….

  245. bdorman264 says:

    @Craig McBreen Easy rook, that will get you kicked out quicker than anything……………..:). Thanks for the nice words though; I’ll give you a hall pass, but Gini might not, she sets the bar pretty high………..I keep running into it, I didn’t know I was supposed to be able to jump over it………….

  246. bdorman264 says:

    @John_Trader1@Craig McBreenkdillabough Who?

  247. @MSchechter@ginidietrich@danieleagee truer words never typed… but I still loathe them and won’t work with them despite their “wins”. 😛

  248. @Ike if actually blogging instead of commenting all over the internet is the standard? I shouldn’t be on anyone’s list. I do the same thing. Somehow I’m happier continuing conversations instead of trying to initiate them these days.

  268. ginidietrich says:

    @ElissaFreeman@AbbieF One of the things we ask when we interview is what people are reading. Sure, we want to know blogs and business pubs. But we also want to know fiction because I believe that, the more fiction you read, the better writer you become…which is imperative in our line of work.
