I consider Eric a friend and someone who's opinion I greatly trust. The fact that our paths cross as often as they do is a good thing in my world. His latest post "Cow dung, and the Concentric Circle Theory" is nothing short of required reason for anyone who sails the waters of the blogosphere, plays in the new media sandbox or considers themselves involved in the conversation at any level.
I'm not kissing his ass. I'm just really impressed with this theory. I'll leave the ass kissing to others.
