One of the highlights is talking with Lionel Menchaca and his team.
They have cool jobs and they
are totally into it. They surf the web,
they find conversation about Dell, and they join in. They talk to a lot of people, not just A-list
superbloggers, but anyone with a passion for or a problem with Dell.
These are the guys who are out

They step up and take the heat when any one of Dell’s 66,000 employees makes a mistake, and they do it with grace and style. I don’t know many companies that have the guts to let a few voices say what needs to be said. (Dell: Give them raises.)
And, as a sign they get it, is that everyone was cool when I
started doing a video interview with Lionel Menchaca, Andrew Durrett and Geoff Knox for my blog. No PR handlers around, no corporate messaging censorship. Here it is:
