The power of social media or “How Michael got a job through commenting on a blog”

Today, Michael Yurechko started working for Carrie & Danielle. How Michael got to the company? He commented on Fred Wilson’s blog on a post that was discussing if you need a college degree to be an entrepreneur, Fred connected him to me as Michael is from Vancouver, I met with Michael, liked him and offered him a job. This is what social media is all about: connecting people and ideas beyond geographies and existing relationships, don’t you love the Internet? And don’t forget to comment on a blog the next time you can be part of an interesting conversation.
