I should be writing other things. And I hate to have two posts in a row reacting to Michael Kaiser’s posts at Huffington Post. But here we are.

Once again I disagree w/ MK, if you have good content & are doing social media right you’ll find an audience http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-kaiser/taking-advantage-of-techn_b_1567319.html?ref=arts&ir=ArtsBrooke Miller
@BrookeM1109 It’s clear that MK doesn’t see Twitter & FB et al as anything but broadcast media, which misses the point entirely. #2amtDavid J. Loehr
@dloehr exactly! Plus his point about large vs small orgs is totally wrong #2amtBrooke Miller
E-mail blasts and big websites. The wave of the future. If the future is 2004. http://huff.to/Lm7mab #2amt #newplayStephen Spotswood

Maybe the Kaiser posts are really like medieval quest tales. They give you all the wrong clues to test if you’re worthy of the prize? #2amtTony Adams
Watching @untappd co-founder @gregavola on how brewers can use social media. Applies to theatre, too. http://is.gd/pg0gw3 #2amtDavid J. Loehr
@dloehr @GwydionS @playwrightsteve @petermarksdrama Inside-baseball works better for us. We are homespun/organic by design.sean williams
@dloehr @GwydionS @playwrightsteve @petermarksdrama And we lead with the superfan. We’re marketing snipers, not carpet-bombers.sean williams
Michael Kaiser favors numbers over content in social media http://ow.ly/bnjUB I say it’s the other way around http://ow.ly/bnk4Z #2amtHoward Sherman
@HESherman doesn’t seem like Kaiser really gets it – relationships not sales, information not sales pitches.jodisc
@HESherman There are ways to keep posts alive and make sure info gets to right people with @replies and tags – doesn’t seem to get that.jodisc
