Last Thursday in New York I heard Seth Godin in person for the first time. I've been learning from him for many years, ever since I read "Permission Marketing," which is still my favorite Seth Godin book -- a must read for anyone doing business in the age of web sites and email. I like a lot of things about Seth. For one, he is a family man. A friend of mine tried to get him to speak at a Utah convention, but he rarely travels west of the Mississippi -- it takes him away from his family for too long. I really enjoyed his presentation.
