While randomly transversing the link that is in, I found someone that’s an Independant Producer. The astute among you may have noticed that independent is spelled incorrectly.
This is my first contact with this person, as they were a suggested contact, or maybe someone that I may know, simply because the need to continue to connect to people at a site that some would say is responsible for spamming the entire ‘net exists.
I found out recently that you can max out at 30K connections there. You’re allowed 3000 invites for free as of this writing, and I don’t truly know if I’ve used all of mine. When I started, you got what’s called an InMail™, and five of those were apparently enough to get you started.
This is where their business model falls apart, as I don’t pay for social media. Your mileage may vary, however the need to spend money on actual goods or services will always be part of MY business model.
I admit, this is part of the one bad electromagnetic pulse can ruin your whole day scenario, however there are several sites out there now offering much the same type of connection. It’s just that LinkedIn™ was first. Unless book of the face was, or Twitter.
I’m just writing to fill some sort of arbitrary word count set by someone that supposedly knows more than I do at this point, simply because I believe that if you can’t spell a word like independent correctly, do I want to go into business with you?
Rhetorical, I know, but to continue, if you’re not paying attention to details like this, when I ask you to independently produce something, are you going to miss something bigger? The moviemaking business has lots of moving parts, and they all move simultaneously, and at the same time.
“Deal in the present, Mike!!!”, someone shouts from the crowd. I talked about that yesterday in one of the several hundred groups that I’m a member of on one of the aforementioned social media networks.
Okay, fine. Good. Amazing! Other exclamations I could make. Someone once said you only get one chance to make a first impression, and they may be right, however in this day and age when I can meet a thousand people exactly like you, you might get a second chance to make a first impression.
The odds that I forget you anytime soon however are three: slim, none, and fat. Actually, those are the chances. Don’t you hate it when you blow a punchline?
