What do they know of England who only England know? Kipling
My friend, Steve Moore, is fond of this quote, and so am I now.
I thought of it reading Twitter at the weekend and seeing Russell Davies say he was deleting marketing blogs from his aggregator. Russell’s post today puts that in context.
I’m not reading many marketing blogs these days because I find the undiluted diet of marketing analysis boring. I think if we spend too much time talking marketing, we probably become less and less good at engaging with the rest of the world… and thus worse at marketing.
