Original Artwork By Sean Tiner
One way to kick start your own brand U.0 is to embrace the personal brands of others. Sean Tiner understands the concept of the word meme having a "me" in it. Sean does portraits of I assume people he finds interesting. Many of these people (that's me up there) will do what I'm doing right now—which is to send a link back to Sean spreading not only his artwork, but also stimulating the "me-gene" that we all have hard wired in us. Sean's other subjects include Hugh Macleod, Ann Handley and Chris Brogan to name a few. When you find yourself at ground zero for starting your own brand, ask yourself "what's in it for meme" which really means what's in it for someone else at the same time.
