New Nashville business blog: Dirk Plantinga sure knows how to get a link from me. He says he started blogging after hearing me speak at the Nashville Technology Council (although it was Brittney or Nick who inspired him, no doubt). And today, he helped launch a blog for the company he works for, the direct maketing firm, Acxiom-direct. (And talk about link-magnet: One of the first posts recommends Robert Scoble and Shel Israel‘s book, Naked Conversations — which, by the way, I also recommend.) Also, Dirk: I know Jay Graves.
