Cindy King interviewed me last week on cross-cultural matters and she gave me permission to post the interview, which was conducted on Twitter. (We tagged the posts so others could follow them.) However, I think it might be better if I sent you to her page, since she was the one who did all the hard work, and deserves the hits to her website. The Twitter interview is about two-thirds down the page; the earlier part was an email-done Q&A (we actually said most of the stuff in there in a Skype call prior to that—normally I would not be as candid with emailed questions).
Props to Cindy for keeping the macron in the word Māori, which I intentionally typed in to the ﬁrst part of the interview.
I’ve had quite a few calls from France, such as Cindy’s, over the past few weeks. Looks like things are beginning to come right there business-wise. Malheureusement, l’entretien est en anglais. Posted by Jack Yan, 03:40
Jack - this stuff is gold. I think voters would appreciate reading it directly. "CK on Twitter" may be accessible to the technorati, but many others would be intimidated to click on the links. Put it out there.
PS Candid works - it makes you real to people who otherwise would stereotype you.
Jim, thank you. You are right about people clicking on links and those who would seek to stereotype. At the moment, however, I only have Cindy’s permission to republish the Twitter part of the interview.Post a Comment
