There was a discussion on twitter w SmoothOrator abt socializing at work. You guys seem to be cordial but not overly friendly. A young lady felt you need to be known, attend events, etc to climb the ladder. Do you think this differs by industry? Can u just do good work and go home and be successful?

It's industry specific. Yes, while we are cordial, I wouldn't consider us overly friendly. Yet, we both manage to hold down jobs and have worked our way up the chain. If you're going to choose, most industries will reward you more for doing good work over doing bad work while being well-known. Put another way, we'd rather work with the person with 100 followers that can get us a $100,000 job over the person with 100,000 followers that can get us 100 RTs
