My pal, Guido Oswaldo a CRM veteran who gets the whole 2.0 thing, just dropped this piece of very cool UGC into his CRM 2.0 blog (always worth a look see). With some serious extensions of the musculature a.k.a. stretching you can find a CRM 2.0 reason for this if you want to or some deeper social commentary but it is just really well done. Really funny too. And a strong case of "true dat." A notable aside here is that it comes from Current. For those of you unacquainted with Current, its actually Al Gore's TV station. The business model is built around a collaboration between the viewers and the station. The content of the station is almost all viewer-created and there are monetary and other rewards if your stuff is created. Their slogan is "you make the news. We put it on television." Gore got into this about 3 years ago - maybe 4 - with people laughing up their sleeves and within about a year had 3 million viewers and an incredibly high valuation but I forget what that is.
You go, Gore.
