In his blog post, Money Can’t Buy You Love: Why Some Apps Work and Some Don’t, Om Malik not only talks about the mess that is the Color app, but he also manages to bring in the buzz books of the month, Gary Vaynerchuck’s The Thank You Economy
and Guy Kawasaki’s Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions.
I did it too! and I raised him an Om Malik… and you bet those are Amazon links!
Course Om also has some excellent points about what makes an app succeed in a highly subjective community and … people actually read his blog. [grin] Anyway – I have to say that I watched Gary V talk at SXSW about The Thank You Economy and it was inspiring. If you have a chance to listen to him talk live, jump on it!
